So every year I get to buy a pretty ballgown for the Army holiday ball. This year I went a little more lavish than I have in the past. I am so anxious to get this dress. Right now it is in Alaska, so hopefully by the end of the week it will be here.
This is the dress I ordered



So if you have a fancy event to go to, do you prefer a traditional ballgown, or do you want to wear something more sultry?

That dress is BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

I haven't had an event that formal since my senior prom. Then I went sultry. At 5'8 and 114# (at the time) I went with a clingy dress that accentuated my body. Gave the appearance of curves that weren't actually there. LOL Not sure what I'd do now if I needed to.

I think the only "clingy" dress I have ever worn was my Jr prom. After that I wanted the ballgowns.

My dress actually came in today. So did Andy's new dress blues. So I was a happy camper tearing boxes open. Now momma needs to make my petticoat to go under it and it will be perfect. So thankful it is as beautiful as the picture.

I didn't go to any school dances except Sr Homecoming and Sr prom.

Can't wait to see pictures of the dress!

White would have made it more like a wedding gown. I was very thankful for the burgundy color. I have looked all over the place for a reddish or green gown for the ball. I happened to find a few by looking on eBay.

Momma got the alterations on it done, and is finishing up the petticoat since it wasn't fluffy enough. Thankfully the ball isn't until next Friday. It gives a bit more time to do what we need to for the dress and for me to get my jewelry made.

Beautiful dress! I get to to Army balls also, but I'm the one in the Army so unfortunately I usually have to wear my uniform

I just figured out why I was never interested in dresses like this when I was younger. Between my height and how skinny I was pre-kids, I'd've looked like a bell! LOL

Sleepinangel, is it possible for the service member to wear a dress instead of the Class A's? Half the time I don't even know who the service member is because everyone is either in dresses or suits. This year though, they are making it a requirement for all the soldiers to wear their Class A's.

Amanda, it's really up to the Command. In all my units at least one of the two had to be in uniform so when DH was in he wore his Blues and I wore a gown, but since he retired 3 yrs ago I'm the one in uniform and he gets to wear the suit. I hate not being able to get all dressed up in fancy clothes, but then when I'm shopping with my friends for their gowns I'm kind of glad that I don't have to go through the hassle or money of finding the perfect dress.

Ahhh, okay. I know that in past years they have been allowed to be out of uniform, but not this year. Today I have to go pick Andy's uniform up since the alterations are done on it. I'm not fond of these new dress blues. To me the Army is supposed to be green. It is what it is though.

Where are you stationed out of?
