Our Formal Wear! The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book

collage of formal wear

Now I already showed you some of our formal wear, you can see it here, but it’s such a good theme that I am very happy to show you some more formal wear outfits. And take a look at our gorgeous fashion blogger friends! They look amazing!

Shelbee of Shelbee On the Edge and myself started this series after we had hosted The Bad Buy Book for a year. Now we are ready for a new challenge! Every 15th of the month we show our Good Buy or Good-Bye item. And we want you to join!

What is The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book about?

It is a collage of outfits! You can choose yourself whether you want to show a Good Buy (which is an item you are really exited about) or a Good-Bye ( which is an item you are going to say good bye to). We will keep buying a Bad Buy from now and then, you know, it was so cheap, you were in a hurry and really wanted(needed) to buy something etc.

But of course we also have those purchases that can make us so very happy. A piece of clothing that you have had for years and that you also wear a lot. Or something you bought on a holiday, and every time you wear it you get that holiday feeling back. Every month you can choose which item you want to send in. A Good Buy or a Good-Bye. We will provide a theme for each month!

So let’s start with The Good Buy/Good-Bye Book: Our Formal Wear!

First my dear blogging friend and co-host Shelbee of Shelbee on the Edgeolive green dress

Here is my Good Buy Dress. Although I didn’t actually buy it. This olive green formal dress was gifted to me by Rosegal. I have worn it a bunch of times on my blog and in real life. It is super lightweight and really comfortable. I wore it to my brother-in-law’s wedding two years ago which happened on the hottest day of the year and I was thankful for the flowy, loose fabric that day. The simple lines make it a very versatile dress to wear formally or casually. And I love the olive green color.

Here we have Jodie of Jodie’s Touch of StyleFormal wear dress

I’m attaching a photo of this dress I found on Small Business Saturday in November. This formal dress shop was going out of business and this one was marked down to $12. How could I not buy it?? I wore it for my birthday party and I plan to pull it out every year.

Here is Sheila of EphemeraThe Good Buy/Good-Bye Book

Here is my of picture of a formal maxi dress that I just bought – I would have worn this for my husband’s 50th birthday bash this Saturday.

This is Laura of I do deClaire our formal wear

This dress was a Good Buy! It was thrifted so was a great deal and I wore it to my brother’s wedding. I just love the color of it with the navy blue under-layer and how well it fits!

This is Kim of Fierce Fashion our formal wear

I don’t really have anything that constitutes formalwear, but this is as close as it comes.  It is a lace dress that I purchased for a White Masquerade party.  This is from two years ago.  It’s BCBG and I felt so stylish in it.

And finally my formal wear. our formal wear

This silk dress and jacket are perfect for a formal party. I love the brown and yellow in the dress and the golden cat head bag gives a fun twist to the outfit!

July’s theme will be: Orange!

And now hop over to Shelbee’s blog to see what the other fashion bloggers are wearing!

      We don’t need it now as we can’t go to parties and weddings. But to dress up at home for a nice evening with hubby is fun too!

    I don’t think I have anything that constitutes “formal” wear, and if I do, I’m certainly not keeping it for formal occasions. That would be such a waste, wouldn’t it? I loved seeing all you lovely ladies in your formal attire. I’m loving your silk dress and jacket, but most of all, I love the sparkly cat bag! xxx

      Haha, that cat bag is a bag I just took out of the bags with clothing and accessories that will go to charity. I actually love it so much!

    I loved this theme as I really had to think about it. We don’t get that dressed up as much anymore, do we?

      No we don’t! But I do it every Saturday, almost every Saturday, just for the fun! And we have dinner with wine and all kind of tapas in the evening! Just like a date night only in our own home!

    Lovely to see all the elegant outfits after a few months of most of us wearing lounge wear, jeans and t-shirts all the time! Your outfit Nancy is lovely. Don’t often see you in yellow.

      No that’s correct. Yellow is not a favorite color of me although I found out that mustard is a good color on me.

    Ooh, what a bevy of beautiful dresses on lovely ladies! Thank you for linking to me, Nancy. I ended up wearing that dress to a park picnic, sitting on the ground in it. It was perfect!

      It is such a beautiful dress on you. A bit like a moviestar from the 40S! So elegant!

    I have nothing formal. Even my wedding dress 4 years ago was a batik sundress. But I really enjoyed this post. I need to check out my wardrobe for July. Orange is one of my favorite colors!

    Thank you for sharing with Creative Compulsions!
