I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that I officially ordered my cap and gown for graduation. I have about 6 weeks to finish my dissertation before I defend it to my committee. So where are my priorities? Finding a graduation dress of course! I ordered a couple of dresses the other day from this amazing website that offers very classic styles with customizable options. I ordered two because I like options, because I won’t know what I’ll be in the mood to wear, and because I’m an indecisive girl. Once the dresses arrive I’ll be able to take them with me to find shoes, accessories, and anything else that might dress them up. I love that both dresses have a 50′s sort of vintage look to them. Fitting I guess for the PhD housewife.
Here is choice #1. I love that I can add a cute cardigan and some accessories and it’ll go from classic to fancy.
Here is Option #2. I actually had flared sleeves added to the dress because I’m not necessarily a sleeveless kind of gal.
Here’s where I need help – what shoes do I wear? I’ll be in a graduation robe and walking across the stage so shoes need to be practical yet cute. Plus, I’ll be squeezing my butt into pantyhose so any shoes need to be closed-toe. I’m also kind of an accessorizing moron so I have no idea what kinds of necklaces to put with either dress. So what do you think? I’m open to any and all fashion advice here!
