Going on the Ectacy to Mexico this coming Monday. I bought a long black ball gown with a short shoulder wrap. I am 37 and single, traveling alone. I think I blew it. Should I take it back, and buy something a bit sexier, and less formal. Aaaaahhhh. This is tough for a first timer..going it alone. How many formal nights are there? HELP!!!
This is NOT the Fashion Police, but I would return the ball gown in favor of something a little bit kickier. Black silk pants and shell. Then a pashamina shawl. You can buy some great parejos for wraps in ports. Hot stuff costume jewelry.
I have been on a gazillion cruises and have NEVER worn a ball gown. It's those black silk pants and the shell with neat jackets and wraps that keep me going.
