I have my high school reunion next week, so I want to look good! I haven't found the perfect thing to wear, but I picked up this dress & belt at Urban Outfitters today. I'm afraid it looks a bit cheap... Do you think this outfit is cute? Also, would you wear the Chanel or Alexander Wang bag?

^ The dress is very pretty and simple so you can style it with whatever accessories you like

I would do the Wang ... not crazy about the boots with the dress, but it's all a matter of personal taste

Me with dressy Dolce and Gabanna leather pants and a turtleneck. The pants are a really neat style: not jeans, but not full-on dress pants. As there are many "fashion forward" people on this forum, I'm curius to hear *honest* thoughts of this ensemble. Does it work or is it just awful? Not the best pic, I realize...

Personally, I love the look of leather pants dressed up as it sidesteps many of the common stereotypes.

Really cute dress. I would pick the chanelbag, but only becaus its more my kind of style. I would wear high heels with the dress instead of boots.

zettie, i'm sure you can get a lot of wear out of them. I like it much better that the sequins are only on the side. Makes them much more wearable. You can dress them up with a nice top and high heels or down with lace up booties and a sweater.

I think you answered you own question at the end of the day if you can't feel 100% in what you wear it probally isn't working. IMO you could get something that fits much better to suit you more

Chanel bag for sure. Add some lace tights or cute thigh-highs and a a standout necklace and you'll be fine

Does this work? I'm trying to go for a Raf Simons-esque look, plus it lets me wear the jackets that are too big for me now.
I think my bigger question is: Is this too eccentric to be taken seriously? (Can't believe I'm asking that [ex-eccentic])
Note: concentrating on the jacket and belt not anything else (house clothes!)
