or is every one not dressing up a lot? just wondering as i have a really pretty but dressy long black dress
I'm going to be wearing a Long black or white skirt (I haven't decided which color would be better) I haven't personally been to any of the ICES banquet, but I have seen pictures and from what I've read on the site I'm pretty sure a dressy long dress wouldn't look out of place.
I have a question too.... Do you think off white would be OK or does it need to be white?
Linda, my parent's neighbor went last year to the one in Orlando and she was in a long dress and even went to the Salon to get her hair and nails done before the event. I'm sure you'll look great. I'm jealous though, wish I could go too! Have a great time ladies!
I have only been to one convention - in Orlando last year. The banquet last year was extremely casual but lots of people still wore dresses. I don't really know what to expect this year...typically a black & white theme implies dressy, but I'm not sure... I bought a black & white cocktail dress that I'll be wearing. I hate shopping so I'm not going back to the mall!
I'm bringing a black skirt and dressy white halter top I purchased from the vintage store and wearing bright colored lightweight sweater (bolero style) over the halter top. I purchased the dress from a new york consignment store markdown to $15 each.
I would suggest wearing what you feel comfortable in. Everyone has there style.
You will see people dressed in formal clothes and in less formal clothes. You won't be over dressed in your long black dressed.
