Narrowing it down

Alright. First off, a big THANKS to everyone for your input. It means a lot :)

Second, I've now narrowed it down to the top 2 songs: "Smile" and "Fooled Ya Baby." Which one I end up singing may be a complete last-minute decision (like right after I say "Hi, my name is Ashley and I will be singing "_______________").

Third, from the advice of Erica, and from my fairly bare wardrobe that completely needs a makeover, I was able to put together a little "outfit." Now, I could be totally crazy in thinking this is cute. So this is where I need a bit more advice. Does this look completely hideous?


Before you say "yes," read on.

All of these things are currently in my closet. I do not need to pull money out of the area I like to pretend it comes from to buy more. So keep that in mind as you are criticizing.

Ok, so I figure that red is a power color, which is good. And the red and black are pretty cute together. I would probably get some really cute red/black earrings. Now as far as shoes- I can't decide. Do I want to be dressy with the Jessica Simpson shoes or should I be more casual with the punk-ish shoes?

Or should I bag the whole outfit and start from scratch?

This shirt dress is cute, but not really an audition outfit, imo.... it's not bad, but I vote for a new top :)

Chris said...

I agree with your mom...something that will leave more of an impression. Those red shoes will definitely leave an impression. :)

I don't think it's bad. I think they know that you are not professionaly dressed. So I think, "why spend money on something that you are just auditioning for?" Do you really think the outfit has anything to do with it? Hmmmmm, maybe it does, maybe not. PS I really like the red shoes.

The judges are also looking for "the look" ... so you do want to impress them in the audition.

I can only speak from my experience. and if it were me and I wore high heels (which I have never done), I KNOW, I just know that it would end with me flat on my face and the red color spilling onto my face. So, having said that I would go the safe (and still really cute route) and go with the black shoes.
But I know nothing so don't listen to me. I am sure you are already asleep. I am really good at boring people.

i like the outfit. As far as shoes, definetly go with the red heels.

Good luck!!!

Hi Ashley! I'm so glad you are auditioning again! Best of luck! As far as what to wear, not that I know anything...I like both shoes. I think it comes down to what you feel the most comfortable in. Which ones fit your personality/mood the best. I know, for me, sometimes that needs to be reaccessed on a daily basis. :)

Erica said...

Cute! Maybe something a little more dressy would be cute too, like without the leggings. But whatever you're comfortable in will be best. I vote for the heels if you chose this outfit.

Janica said...

sorry have to say I dont like the outfit at all...shoes are both cute depending on what look you want. With that being said...I am a totally geek when it comes to clothes!!!
