Personal Shopper: Naomi's BETSTRAVAGANZA!

Naomi writes: "I'm looking for an outfit on budget of less than $200 to wear to dinner with Betsey Johnson. I won a trip to have a girls' night out with 3 of my friends. I want something that is edgy and not tutu-frilly (which a lot of her current dresses are). I'm more of a classic modern girl, so I still want my style incorporated in it. Maybe a cool dress with Betsey Johnson accessories? Should I even wear her stuff when I meet her? The dinner will be at a hip restaurant in NYC at the end of June...I don't like frilly tutu's and super high heels (I'm more of a wedge/flats girl). I don't want anything tight around the stomach area."

OMGWTFBBQJEALOUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUS! Naomi, we want to be you so badly right now...but we're here to help. Dammit. And as much as we wanted to tell you to hit your local thrift store, grab a neon '80s prom dress, and go to town on it with a bedazzler and some stuffed animals, we tried to stay true to your less-flashy style. That doesn't mean, however, that we're going to let you get away with an austere look, not for dinner with the doyenne of overkill.

Oh, and, uh, this was one of those Personal Shopper posts that EVERYONE wanted in on, so it became kind of a neon pink leopard-print clusterf***.

You're going to mention Outblush to THE Betsey Johnson? *swoons*

If she were to ever comment on one of our posts, I think I might go into a happiness-induced coma.

Glad you like all the choices, Naomi! Have a BLAST!

Naomi, that sounds like an awesome night out! Also super jealous. I'm really digging the pink/orange dress in #6 from Janetor with the more classic accessories.
