Have I lost enough

To pull off this dress?

That Bald Chick

Seriously looking for an outside opinion!

That Bald Chick

My husband says I look hot in it, but he says I look hot in everything I put on, so, ya’ know…

We have a dinner to attend on the 20th, and my plan was to wear this dress with silver-tone jewelry and maybe a little cap sleeve sweater.

But, now, I am having second thoughts.  Thinking I am “not quite there yet.” 

AND, if I do wear it, I am at a loss for shoes.  I haven’t worn heels since before Mister was born, and honestly don’t own any.  Strappy sandals?  Dressy flip-flops?  Peep toe heels? 

UGH!  I haven’t stressed over getting dressed in a long while, but I want to look smashing for this dinner!

What do you think? And I mean, be brutally honest.  If you think I need to lose another ten pounds (or a coupla inches) before I step out the house in this, PUH-LEASE tell me.  I don’t want to be the one everyone whispers about behind her back.  At least, not for that reason.

About Virginia

Hi there! My name is Virginia, and I am the author/owner of That Bald Chick. I am a Christian, wife, mother of three, full time homemaker, homeschooler, and ministry volunteer in addition to being a blogger. In my free time *cough* I enjoy reading, writing, taking walks with my family, and listening to music.


  1. You look GOOD! I would wear it.

    And it totally needs peep-toe heels.

  2. You look awesome! Yes, you’ve lost enough. Beautiful!

  3. I think it looks great, but I need a back version too!!

  4. I love it!! I think you should definitely wear it!! 😀 For shoes, I’d go with strappy flat sandals in a silvery grey that matches the jewelry (try at payless), or high heels if you are willing to risk them! For a fancy dinner, I bet you’d look great in the heels but I think if you can’t walk in the shoes, it is better to be able to walk than to look cute, you know??? 😀

  5. Thanks, Rachel. Cheryl, I will have to ask Hubs to take a back shot, as we didn’t get one!

    Wear that sucker, you mama jama!!!LOL You earned it!

  7. You look amazing Virginia! From what I can see, it looks fantastic on you and you should totally wear it.

  8. Brittany says:

    Holy moly girl you look great. I would say wear it and don’t think twice. You don’t look like you have 10 more extra lbs on you that you could loose. And for shoes flats, dressy sandals or even those gladiator sandals would look great. I would do black but silver would be fine too. 🙂 🙂

  9. Jen Schwartz says:

    You can wear it proudly! You look amazing. I wish I knew how you keep from hitting a plateau. As far as shoes go, I have no clue what is in style. I just hope someone tells me when I start looking completely like that out-dated mom. Enjoy your dinner!

  10. YES!!! WOW, Virginia, you seriously look AWESOME in that dress. Great job!!!

  11. You look AMAZING Virginia! I think you are rocking that dress! I would wear it with wedge heels (but that’s because I don’t look heels and I think wedge heels are easier to walk in if you are out of practice).

    Seriously, you are an inspiration to me!

  12. You look amazing… totally wear it!

  13. looks good to me. Get a side view so I can be sure.
    I can’t wear heels anymore due to my health, but I can still wear flashy flats – so can you. Your shoes don’t have to be HEELS! It’s summer time and there are other choices.

  14. You look fantastic!!! Great job! I would do black heels. Personally I love and favor stilettos but you could do some peep toes.

    Here are two that I found that would look nice if you could find some before your date.

    And now you have me looking at shoes! Bad girl! I want these for ME! 🙂 lol

  15. WOWZERS! yes, you can totally wear that and pull it off later with your hubby around.. teehee..

    And I say wear it with a little heel, strappy heels 🙂

  16. Girl! You look AMAZING! I have been waiting for you to post a pic of your progress! Hottie! You look like Ginny from 11 years ago! Seriously, YOU can pull this off! Maybe flats so you will feel comfy! Sandles would look great too! Love you! Miss you! Have a Great time!

  17. I think it looks great, and I love the color- strappy sandals for sure. Er…you fill the top out very nicely. Can I say that?? Silver jewelry would look smashing. Loving how you look all sexified …but your footsies and toes are like all shy LOL!

  18. I say hot in it too! I love it and you look great!! Purple is my fave color, I would wear this!!

  19. Yes, yes, yes! Oh my, you do look fantastic! And if you feel uncomfortable then do wear a little sweater. I just bought one and they are very in. I felt so much more comfortable wwearing it and it put me at ease.
    Virginia, your hubby would be so pleased and very proud to be seen with you looking so gorgeous! When he says you look hot believe him because it is the truth.
    Have a wonderful time, you deserve it!

  20. Oh yeah….I’d say wear it. Take some pictures of the shoes and we’ll help you decide. Hard to say without seeing them!! NO FLIP FLOPS!!!!

  21. Gorgeous!!! As for shoes, I would continue the silver theme. Here is a shoe, that isn’t too high of a heal, and a great price $14.99 w/ free shipping or you can pick them up.

    Have fun on your night out!!!

  22. I REALLY like it. I say go for it!

  23. You look very pretty- and yes you can pull off wearing that dress! I would opt for the sweater too it would just make you more comfy and then you can always take it off later. As for shoes, you’re thin enough you could get away with some fancy flats if you dont want to wear heels.

    Ya look great!

  24. Stunningly gorgeous with a beautiful heart to match! 🙂

  25. Carole Spring says:

    You look amazing in that dress! Definitely wear it to the dinner.

  26. Looks great – Have fun!

  27. I love it! And if you aren’t comfortable in heels, some cute flats would work well, too!

  28. I saw some really pretty flats at TJ Max that were silver with rhinestones that would look really cute with the dress. Would have grabbed them if they were in my size 🙁

  29. I think you look great!

  30. Like a Greek Goddess!

  31. Are you kidding me? You look fantastic! I would wear some low heeled sandals with silver accents of some kind, which I think is a good compromise. I love the idea of a cap sleeve sweater. You never know when the A/C will be blasting – goose bumps aren’t all that attractive.
    You could always do shoes to match the sweater:-)
