Milspouses- I Need Help

I was so excited to find so many amazing milspouse blogs through the blog hop earlier this month. I am hoping that some of y'all will help me out. I am trying to figure out what I will wear to the Squadron Ball. I am planning on wearing a white dress, and was told in the protocol class that white was perfectly acceptable. However, I don't want to look like a wanna-be bride. Here is the dress: 



Oh and here is me in the dress. Man I look so young even though it was less than three years ago. 

I fell in love with this dress years ago, and purchased it for VMI's Ring Figure Ball. I got it during an incredible sale from Bluefly. It fits me perfectly, and I only wore it once. Question, is it too bridal-ly for the Ball? Have y'all worn white or seen other women wear white? 


  1. I haven't seen a lot of ladies in white at balls, but if you love it, I think you should wear it!

    I think if you dress it up with some jewelry- chunky, enamel bright colored jewels like turquoise or coral (necklace and bracelet or earrings and bracelet) could be perfect- it will de-emphasize any bridal connotations and just make you look summery!

  2. I have never been to a ball, so i cannot answer some of your questions, but I do not think it looks too bridal! If you like it wear it! You look great!

  3. I haven't been to a ball either, but you look just lovely!You pull off white very well.


  4. I think it's pretty friend!! You can even spruce it up by adding pops of color in a statement necklace or a belt perhaps? I love the details in the top portion!

  5. I think it's perfect! Definitely some colorful jewelry will give it less of a wedding look, but I think it's gorgeous!
