What Should I Wear for My High School Reunion?

So I have that twenty year high school reunion coming up this summer and supposedly there will be an evening that is semiformal.  As you might imagine, I have nothing to wear, unless you count yoga pants.  So I went to Eshakti to check out their cockatil dresses.  I did find one I liked - the Jet Illusion Yoke Jacquard dress.

Paul said it looks vintage when he was taking the pictures, and that is what I liked about it.  I also like that it makes my waist look slender, while covering up belly fat.  It is sleeveless, with a scoopneck. 

The bodice is princess seamed, with an embellished paillette illusion yoke.  I found it comfortable and a good fit.

I'm not sure whether this will be the dress for the reunion, but at least now I have Option A!  Eshakti carries a wide variety of women's fashions (from size 0 - 36W) and you can use custom measurements and change the lengths before you order. 

Disclaimer:  I received this dress from Eshakti for review purposes.  The opinions stated above are my own.

How is it possible that you have been out of high school for 20 years? And what belly fat? Love that dress. You look beautiful!

Nancy Claeys said...

My Journey With Candida said...

Very Pretty Lisa! My Daughter just got one from them that didn't fit and she needs to send it back.

Karen said...

The dress looks awesome on you, I think you should wear it to the reunion, very figure flattering and a class act.

PS.. you really shouldn't complain about hiding belly fat, are you kidding me??...

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Definitely an option. Love the color and the neckline.

You look lovely in the dress, Lisa--definitely a keeper! You certainly don't look like you're getting ready for a 20 year reunion!

Maple Lane said...

It is a perfect dress for you - beautiful pics.

Buttons said...

Oh I agree with Nancy I am so glad you are not in my class I would not want to stand by you:)
It is gorgeous on you. B

IanH said...

That dress would get my vote! 20 year reunion? You've got to be kidding! How about 10?

Valerie said...

That dress is gorgeous Lisa! And it looks stunning on you!! You should definitely wear it to your reunion!

Angela said...

I love it! It looks like it was made just for you! And so cool that you got it for free! For some reason my graduating class are a bunch of snobs or something because we have not had a single reunion at all so I have no clue as to what people even wear to one.

TexWisGirl said...

that's a 10 in my book! i'd stop looking if i were you!

Grandma Bonnie said...

I think that dress would be perfect for your reunion. I like the bodice it is very flattering.

Ginny said...

You look very pretty in it, and I love the shoes! I hope you show us the dress you finally choose. And I cannot believe you have an ounce of belly fat!

Sunnybrook Farm said...

Not that an old guy knows anything about styles but it looks really nice. I went to several reunions and some of the women wore some ridiculous outfits. Wow, I just thought, my 40th will come up in a couple years, yuk.

Debbie said...

gorgeous lisa, the dress is perfect for you!!

GardenofDaisies said...

Lisa, you look gorgeous in that dress. But I think you are the kind of person who would look cute in a paper sack. No matter what you wear, you are going to be turning heads at your 20th reunion. :-)

Sally Crowe said...

A winner!

You look great, Lisa.

Lisa
I like the dress. But I think you'd look good in whatever you chose to wear.
You surely couldn't have been any smaller then you are now! Where's the fat youre talking about?

Jo said...

You are so gorgeous.

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

You look sensational!

Our Neck of the Woods said...

Wow, I think it looks great! Definitely makes your waist look teeny tiny. But no matter what you wear, you'll knock 'em dead!

SweetMarie said...

Very flattering colors and dress on you! Belly fat??? You are funny! You don't have any fat! Don't be so hard on yourself!

Angie said...

I love the vintage feel it has. It's very flattering on you!

Summers Acres said...

I do like the vintage look as well. It is very classy. My 20 year reunion is this June. It is not looking very "up scale" so I do not think I'll be needing such a dress. I may not even go...lol.

Betsy Adams said...

Very pretty, Lisa. As pretty as you are, anything you wear would be FABULOUS. I'm sure you'll choose just the perfect outfit..
Hugs,
Betsy

Enie Dub said...

I love this dress - and you have an enviable figure!

Diane Cayton-Hakey said...

Wowzer! This dress is perfection on you, style, fit and color. I say wear this one to the reunion!! You are such a knock-out anyway, but this dress is so perfect on you, Lisa!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I love it, definitely wear it!

Jill said...

YOWSER! You look like a model! That dress is splendid on you!

Lin said...

It's cute...but I think you gotta be a tad more flashy for the reunion. Folks tend to go all out for those things--you know, they want to look "good" and all that stuff. You look fabulous--flaunt it, pally!

Tweedles -- that's me said...

Wow- its a beautiful dress and you look so pretty!
love

Linda said...

I like it! Elegant but not overdone.

Marie said...

I really love this dress! Just classy enough with the sheer bodice and sweetheart neckline, but with a different kind of look for the rest of the dress. Not too fancy, but really pretty.

Beth @ E. lizard Breath Speaks said...

love those shoes. what would you do with your hair? an up-do? ( :

Anne Payne said...

Wow! What a beautiful dress on an equally lovely lady! It does indeed look vintage :)

Marissa said...

I think it's perfect for your reunion! Beautiful!

I think it looks vintage too and I really like it. You know we all know that you have no belly fat right? LOL
