Wow, that’s a really early Christmas party!
First, here’s the LBD section of Unique-Vintage.com. I love their site. I don’t necessarily buy all my dresses from them, but there’s enough variety there to give me ideas.
Second, do you know what silhouettes would best flatter your figure/body type? Do you feel you need to camouflage anything or play up a favorite part of yourself?
Third, if you’re fair with red hair, have you considered a deep emerald green? (Who am I kidding, you probably have!) Everyone wears red during the holidays, and you sound like you’d look stunning in a rich green, which would also fit the festive mood.
Though, that Goldfinch dress looks particularly awesome and can easily work with a company Christmas party. There’s no harm in ordering it to see how it looks on you. If it’s not what you’d hoped it would be, just return it — ModCloth is really good with customer service. Or, if you don’t feel like waiting or paying for non-refundable shipping, perhaps you can go to a store and find some other mustardy-gold article of clothing to try on and see if the color suits you. I ended up just Googling images of redheads wearing yellow and got Isla Fisher and Julianne Moore to get an idea of how different shades of red hair would look like with various shades of yellow.posted over 3 years ago
