whitney awards

I know this has been posted elsewhere today—I’ve seen it all over Facebook. But I wanted to congratulate the winners on a job well done! And also to offer my personal thank you to all those behind-the-scenes people who make the Whitney Awards and Gala possible.

Also, my candy dress was a hit with my table mates! (But it’s a good thing I wore a  jumpsuit under it. They were hungry!)

The Whitney Awards Banquet is this weekend! And after working with hundreds of top-notch, internationally renowned, elite fashion designers, I’ve narrowed it down to three.

1. The Blue Fairy

A_a5-1332238470

I like this one because blue definitely sets off my hair, which is my best feature. And I already have glasses frames to match. I would wear this outfit exactly as is, but with my hair flowing down below the absolutely striking hat.

2. The Green Dream

B_00190m

I like this one because my eyes are green. And also it has a fashion-forward feel to it. Plus, if anyone annoys me, I can turn my head quickly and smack them with my hat—then pretend it was an accident.

 

3. The Blood Sugar Booster

C_Unusual-Couture1

This is the one I’m sort of leaning toward because I lurve the colors. Plus I have trouble with my blood sugar so if I get hungry, I can have a snack.

But I’d wear these shoes.

So what do you think??? Please give feedback and tell me which one to pick in the comments below. I NEED your help because the last thing I want is to look like a fashion fool at the banquet!
