Birthday Dress Dilemma.

I need your help, people.

I did a little bit of shopping with Esther this week, and also with Jewlia Goulia.  I got four dresses, and I'm not sure which one I should wear for my birthday when Dan and I go to Denver.  The deciding factor would usually be, "What are we doing?" -- but I have no idea what we're doing.  So.  I have four dresses and I can't decide!

That's where you all come in.  I need help!

Dress #1 (Target):


Dress #2 (Rave):


Dress #3 (Rave):
(Shoes:  Steve Madden)

Dress #4 (Boston Store):


SO!  Please leave a comment and let me know which dress you think should be the big Birthday dress!  :)

Also, fabulous news... remember last week when I was lamenting over the skirt at Express?  I thought the size 8 would be too small, so I didn't try it on.  Well, when I went back, dammit, it fit.  Just goes to show, it never hurts to try it on!

I say dress 4!

Cheesy Noodles said...

I like 2!

Marilou @ Mostly Healthy said...

#3 by far!

Btw .. you're smokin' hot :)

Kristin W said...

You look amazing!!! Congrats on the size 8 :) I'm really in love with the third dress! It's not too dressy but flirty and sexy! Have fun in denver! And it looks like you'll look awesome in any of those four dresses :)

JewliaGoulia said...

1 or 4!

I'm leaning towards 1 because it could go "bar" or "restaurant" and 4 is like "fancier restaurant" or the "opera" (because of the satin top.)

Both are pretty "vintage" looking and with those glasses you're like a sexy secretary!

:)

(Or jeggings as a back-up!)

April said...

You look great...makes it hard to pick just one. I think dress #3 is a great birthday dress....I love the pop of the red shoes.

Dani said...

all 4 are great but I would go with 4 or 1 - they both accentuate your gorgeous figure. Have a FABULOUS time!!

Amy --- Just A Titch said...

#3! And you look amazing!

Julia Writer said...

They all look great but #1 and #4 are the most flattering on you :)

Erica Marie said...

I absolutely adore dress 2! But dress 4 looks amazing on you too! :)

Roxie said...

I vote #4! Awesome dress.

Xina said...

I'm saying dress #3. Looks like you could wear it to dinner, an art gallery, out to a club....and it looks like it would be really comfortable to be in all night. But they all look great on you! I was looking for a birthday dress yesterday and no such luck. I think I may have been inspired to look some more this weekend.
Happy Birthday!

NJ said...

I like 1 or 4.

Mari said...

My husband and I vote for #4! #1 is really nice, but looks more business-y.

Haley said...

1 or 4 for sure!

Allan said...

The skirt with a bra or bustier would be bangin !!

Caitlin said...

I vote #4! Gorgeous!

Lori Ann said...

You look fabulous in all the dresses but I think dress #4 is the best.

Taylor said...

I vote for dresses 3 and 4!

KellyGrrl said...

1, 3, and 4 are all my favorites... But I think for birthday celebrating 4 wins over all! :-)

Candace said...

#1 and #4! Lookin' great!

Bleed to Love Her said...

Dress #3 is my absolute favorite. The shoes are perfect.

Mishe@EatingJourney said...

I like two. I just like it. Nice waist you little sex kitten. I can totally remember your birthday last year. So exciting to have followed you for over a year now!

*Bitch Cakes* said...

OMG I love ALL OF THEM! But I think birthdays are extra special, so I'd go for dress #3. But honestly they are all gorgeous and look terrific on you!

Jordan E said...

I say if you're partying, dress #3- That is HOT! I love the red shoes with it and your legs look long and beautiful. If you're going to a nice dinner, wear dress #1. It looks GREAT on you and is very classic.

You look great!

Jennifer said...

I say number 4!

Morgan said...

I love 1 and 4 - they can go for anything I think. I also really like 3, but think it is fancier. I think that you are going to have to change your blog name from "ex hot girl" because you are definitely currently hot! Makes me so jealous, and also makes me feel like going to the gym!

Grace said...

Love 4, hate 1.

thecoghlans said...

I love dresses 1 & 4 with the cute red shoes!!!!

NatureCat said...

#1 is so classy. That's my first pick. Second choice is #4.

Sooze said...

Go for #4! Love the shoes too!

Amanda said...

Dress #4! That dress is hot. All of them look great on you, of course, but 4 is my favorite!

Fallon said...

Number 4, definitely. Professionally sexy!

Olga said...

1 or 4 - 1 is more versatile where 4 is a little dressier...but you look hot in all of them!1!

tasha1972 said...

Dress 1. I love the simplicity of it! ~ Tasha

M. Denise C. said...

4 and then 1! Definitely not 2. :-)

Beth said...

1 or 4, but I'm leaning towards 1. Love the neckline! You look great in all of them, though.

Brittanie said...

#1 with heels you look like a total femme fatale.

Chula said...

i say dress4

Jes said...

Dress #3!!!!!!

Shan said...

Four is my favorite, but I also really like number three! Just have to say you're an inspiration!

Hannah said...

1 or 4. I especially love 1. Gorgeous.

Kristen said...

Dress #3 is my pick but all of them look fantastic on you! Also, yay for the skirt!!!

Dress #4.

starfish264 said...

Dress 1 is very nice but I'd say it's more a hot work dress than night out celebrating. Dress 2 is cute but nothing special, dress 3 is awesome and super-cute (my favourite) and dress 4 is sex-ay!!! Take your pick lady, but I'd def go dresses 3 or 4 ;-)

Good work by the way - you're looking fab and it clear you're making great progress again right now - keep it up! X

Losing it said...

1 or 4 are the best and you look amazing! Way to go on your goals!

Katie said...

Number 4!
You look sexy and sophisticated!
Like a naughty secretary or something!
Also like dress 3!
Well done on all your sucess!

Darcie said...

Dress 4! It's by far the most flattering.

I'm Loving my Complicated Life! said...

1 and 4 most def !!!!! You look so super tiny!

Allison

Alexia said...

def. 3! it's fun and lovely. #1 looks like you're going to the office and #2 looks a bit too casual. #4 looks a bit too office-ish plus it's a bit too formal.

def. 3.

Dani said...

My vote for for dress #3! :) I base my dress decisions now on 'how much longer do I have to wear something like this?' when I was turning 21 I had two dresses a classic little black dress and a white betsey johnson sequin dress with a pink bow lol my friend said to me "you have your wholeeee life to wear a fabulous black dress. Wear the sparkly one!!" Thats why my vote if for dress 3! You are young and you got it so FLAUNT IT :)

Karina said...

Dress 4..totally! Dress 1 -woohoo for target, super cute, looks very Mad Men-ish. #3 is way cute too but depends on what you are doing because it's short..go on with the weight loss, you're kicking ass!

Gina (Prim and Polished) said...

I adore the first dress. ::runs to target::

Gina (Prim and Polished) said...

P.S. can you tell us who the first dress is by so I can find it at Target?

Melissa said...

1 and 4 show off your figure nicely! Show it off girl! You have worked SO HARD for it! I can't even imagine you losing more weight! You look so skinny in that skirt!

Esther Crawford said...

I'm going with the one I was with you for - #4. :) So good to hang out ... must do that again soon!

Idle Wife said...

1 and 4 are by far the most flattering on you. I'm definitely leaning more towards 1. I think it's a dress that would work for any occasion. Plus you could pair it with a cardigan or a scarf or different shoes/necklaces and wear it to more than one event which is kind of a good thing when you're travelling.

Alex said...

1 & 4 woman...hoooooooooot!

Nick and Meg said...

#3 and #4 are my favorites!!!

BTW, you need to change the name of your blog from EX hot girl to just HOT GIRL! :-)

meg in Utah

HopeFool said...

I love all 4 dresses, but #s 1 & 4 look like they were tailored for you. Very nice fit on both.

So, between 1 & 4 - the neckline of #1 is way sexier on you.

Jen~The Light Keeper said...

I say #4!! You look fab! Jealous over here!

Beth said...

I love 3&4...and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the red shoes!!!

MB said...

You look great in all the dresses but #3 is the one I can see the birthday girl wearing.

Tina said...

REALLY LOVE #4...but could be too dressy depending on where you go.

LIOVE #1 too...and could work for more casual or more dressy...so I go for #1.

You look fantastic!

Tracy McWilliams said...

I like #1, #3 and #4. #3 is more fun but #1 & #4 do look best. I would pick #4!

Jocelyn said...

dress numba 3 is hot!

Skygirl said...

I'll cast my vote for #3 b/c it seems the most versatile!

helderheid said...

Luuuuuuuuuuv #1! You look gorgeous!

kimert said...

I LOVE #3 on you!

The Insatiable Host said...

Comment #61 and I say #4 ALL THE WAY and can I have one too???

HOLY HOT-STUFF!!! The dress is great my dear! Also, loving the red shoes you were in also!!!! Wishing you all the best and another congrats for the Fitness mag schpiel!!! You are fucking amazing!

Crysi said...

I love the neckline on #1, but #4 is fabulous too.

You look amazing!

Michelle said...

woah I totally thought I commented on this, but looking back I didn't!

You look way amazing and I am sooo proud of you!!

I've been following you since before you celebrated 100 followers and I'm so inspired by you!

I don't comment much, mostly because I feel like a lazy bum and therefore a hypocrite or something.

But this post actually, seeing how wonderful you look inspired me so much that I am actually making a change!

I have a regular blog called Roses and Peaches, but I just started a weight loss blog call back in the saddle, if you want to check it out. Nothing special... yet!

thanks so much for putting in so much time and effort for us readers, it totally means a lot!

Kristin said...

i looove dress 1 and 3 on you! you look so great! congrats!

Terri said...

Love Dress #4, and I am so glad I found your blog, you are such an inspiration!

Chuck said...

Jenn, I like dress #4, I also think I now have a dressing room fetish after seeing you in one sooooo many times (they are quite hot), and I'm proud of what you've done in a year. You are lookin' good1

Nikus said...

It depends where you go...classy, go for dress #4 (my favorite). A little more trendy - go for dress #3, second favorite. Either way chica, you look damn good! Congrats! Can you send me some of your motivation, I am seriously lacking right now!

Mzlead said...

Hi there, I've only just started reading/writing a blog and feel a bit strange 'stalking' without posting comments so here goes:

I'm a fan of dresses #3 and #4. They're fun but seem like they'd fit well into lots of different situations no matter where you end up!

Happy Birthday!

(p.s. Loving your blog. I'm finding so many inspirational people out here in the blogosphere. I can't believe it's taken me this long to get here!)

Shae Adele said...

dress 4 (:
you look great! happy birthday!

Traci said...

1 or 4!!

Nicole said...

Dress 3 or 4! I think I like 4 better though...

Melanie said...

Dress number three is definitely the sexiest and most flattering on you. Show off your body, girl! Wear number three!!!

C said...

dress1 = nice, but work-like
dress2 = weird...too bull's eye
dress3 = too short
dress4 = best one, but very classic-looking

(what's with all the black and white and gray?)

Claire said...

1 or 4, with a bent towards 4. You have such a cute figure! Can't wait to see which you pick. :)

Juani said...

Definitely no.4.It makes you look even thinner than you already are,looks really classy,but also very sexy.

Stephanie said...

Dress number and/or dress number 4. Both say "I am a classy, retro rocking bitch." Plus they both make you look super thin. Congrats and Happy birthday!

Rob Dyess said...

From a guy's perspective... I like the skirt with the bra.... it's nice!!

Really- I think dress #1.

Thanks!

Later Never Exists said...

You look adorable in every single one of those dresses..... I can only hope that one day I will look as good and be able to pull of those as well as you.

I have to go with dress #3. It's fun and flirty and while all of the other dresses are great I think that one says "It's my birthday... look at me!"

Quincifer said...

I'd say dress 1, because it is plain so you can then dress it up if you need to (depending on whatever it is you end up doing).

You look fab!! :)

Kristy said...

I like 1 or 4!

kelerific said...

I love, love, love dress #3!!

Dan Brindley said...

Dress 3 for your b-day, they're all great though!

Lianne said...

my vote is dress 4! sooo sexy and sophisticated. looking really great jenn :)

Heather said...

4!

p.s. phew finally caught up with all your posts start to finish! found your blog through mel's dietnaked blogroll n glad i did - it's been great following your progress since starting my own weightloss 'quest' on 7-19-10. love your openness, sense of humor n all the excellentastic photos. you've got a new friend in connecticut if you want :D

Casey said...

Dress 4 looks fun, and you could be ready for many different activities! Dress 3 is a great party dress... but what if you go somewhere windy? Dress 1 = business-y, dress 2 = beach cover-up-y.

Pinky Promise said...
