Critical Decision

And no, it's not whether or not I should go to Pittsburgh in January, for those of you who are also my Facebook friends (for the record, the jury is still out on that one). No, I have to decide what to wear to the company Christmas party in December. It is the one day out of the year when I get all girly and stuff.

I am wearing a black skirt (I have 14,000 of them - roughly speaking), and I'm trying to decide between these tops:

I like this one a lot, but it is very different than what I typically go for. Also, it is red, which scares me. I look good in it, but it seems to me that it is too attention grabbing.

I like this one, too. It is different, and it is sparkly, which is always good for Christmas. I just don't think I have an appropriate bra to pull it off, and I don't want to buy a bra that I am going to wear exactly once.


This is kind of casual for a semi-formal event, I think, but I really like the color.

I like the neckline and the cut of this, but it might be too casual a fabric.

I would totally pick this one if I were a little bit braver. But again, I have a fear of red, and I still have the bra issue.

I love blue velvet. That's why this one is here.


I thought the cut of this one was interesting, and it's in a plesantly Christmasy color


Same shirt, different color. I'm partial to neutrals

Any preferences among the fashionistas of the blogosphere?

My vote is for the red one with the ribbons in an inverted V (the first one) or the green wrap one with the side tie.

Red might scare you but since it's a Christmas party, it won't be the only one (therefore, you might not grab as much attention and would blend in more, actually).

Hubby likes me in red but I don't like to wear it because his step-mother wears it all of the time -- and no, he does not have step-mommy issues -- his like of me in red does not relate to her. It's all my issue!!!!
