Can we talk about dresses? I want to buy one for my public defense, taking place mid-January. It will be formal. The day will easily be 12 hours long. I would love to be able to use the dress for more than one event. Sleeveless dresses in the links below would have to be worn with some kind of sweater thing (because winter!). It will likely be grey and boring out, so I'd prefer some color. The blue with 3/4 sleeves, though, is gorgeous (and already more color than most PhDs wear!).

Top 2 favorites:

https://www.succubus.nl/lady-v-hepburn- ... -rose.html

Others I like:

https://www.succubus.nl/lindy-bop-janic ... -navy.html
https://www.succubus.nl/lindy-bop-kelly ... -blue.html

I absolutely love the Lady V Hepburn, but I can also really see you wearing the blue Lindy Bop! The blue seems more "I'm serious, successful and I know stuff!". They're all gorgeous though.

The Lady Hepburn! It's gorgeous and seems totally you.

I like the Janice floral navy best. I don't know how well the Lady V would work with your coloring. Can you try them on somewhere or order & send back?

I like them all (except the blue lace, which just strikes me as wrong for the occasion), but this one is my favorite; I'm picturing it with a black cardigan, nude hose - or black tights, because winter - and black pumps. Simple pearl necklace and stud earrings. Perfection.

I bought the two favorites online on Thursday (?) and they were here when I got home last night. I love the Hepburn. Love, love, love the Hepburn. Desdemona: I had to look up black bumps because I actually did not have a visual. You're right that they'd be amazing with the dress, but I will be wearing deliciously flat ballerinas.


Thanks PPK :))

Excellent - be sure to post photos so we can see how brilliant and beautiful you look!

And of course, now that I've decided and purchased them, those websites are having Black Friday sales. (Since when does NL even do that?) Plus, bonus competing dress: https://topvintage.net/en/vintage-retro ... s-in-black

Can you buy the dresses in the sale and return your previously-bought ones for the price you bought them at?

I love that new competing dress. (Though it looks like it is sold out in most sizes?)
