I need your HELP, since I can't think for myself.

As most of you know, I'm in a band (music to come later). Yes....but it's not just, "let's get stoned in someones basement and bang on some shit while singing out of tune and staring at posters of Rock Gods duct taped to the ceiling." We're not fucking around, as in, "by 2012 we'll have gone on tour and have enough money to take a vacation to some obscure glacier, just because we can- cause why else would you want to visit a glacier?" That kind of thing. 

On Sunday we're opening at The Fox Theater for Au Revoir Simone, who's in the middle of a world tour. For a band, that is playing their heart out and googling $1 dollar PBR night and eating tater tots too fucking often,  this is potentially a really big deal for us. 

As the ONLY chick in the band....it's important that I look smokin'. Being the rose amongst the thorns, we have a few responsibilities. A. Make sure no one leaves a capo B. Sing something pretty, to offset any potential "man rock" sounds. and C. Look hot. That's just the way the cookie crumbles....if it were an all girl band, you're allowed to have a few wonkies, but if you're the token chick, you've got to give off potential Maxim cover vibe. So, considering the fact that I would prefer to wear boxers, wife beaters and messy buns....I've got to pull it together before Sunday. 

I'M TORN BETWEEN DRESSES, and need your help. 

When you envision Super Sexy Band Girl Taking Over World in 2012 So She Can Vacation on Glaciers and Buy Expensive Olives and Perform at Coachella.....which dress would you choose??

Option 1.                          Option 2.                      Option 3.  
                              
    
                     Option 4.                         Option 5.                       Option 6. (if i'm not bloated.)
                                        


ALRIGHT......VOTING STARTS, NOW!!!

I vote for either one or six. But if you wear six, there's potential for a boobage escape. But hey, that's not so bad, right?

jessica said...

I think 4 would be amazingly hot! And wearing a messy bun would be very appropriate so you can still be the girl you are. :)

nicopolitan said...

4 and 5, because they're classy. And also look kind of difficult to perform in, so it would look impressive.

Megan said...

I like one or three.

peterdewolf said...

I love the crap out of #1.

It's not even close.

CallMeKP said...

2! 2! 2! 2! Definitely 2!

Matt said...

I'm with Peter.

I know this is more a post for girls.. but you should really listen to us guys on this.

Also? I dont like this statement-

"Being the rose amongst the thorns"

are you saying your LOVE is a thorn? tsk tsk.

See you Sunday.

Joy @ BigTimeFancy said...

FIVE.

5!FIVE!5!FIVE!5!FIVE!5!FIVE!

rachel said...

DEFINITELY #2, but honey... you'd look hot in a trash bag. true story.

i'm so excited for you though! how awesome.

Sarah said...

option 2! and where are the dresses from?

Jem said...

1 or 5!

Anonymous said...

1, 4, or 6. Stay away from 3!

Shannon said...

I'm really feeling number 6!

Jess said...

Option 1! I heart.

Big Red said...

Number six is rock and sexy, a combination that can be hard to pull off. I think you should wear that with some badass heels - guaranteed to break a few hearts.

A Margarita said...

I like 3 and 5! More so three than 5.

k. mead said...

1, 3, or 5

Erin said...

1.

Jo said...

I think it depends on the kind of music, but I like 1 or 2 since both have the potential to look pretty bad-ass with accessories.

amtc said...

1

Lindsay said...

#1! Love.

Olivia Rae said...

option 5 is amazing!

Megan said...

#2 - nothing is going to fall out up top & it looks like there is actually room to move around in, so you don't have to stand there like you've got a ruler slapped onto your back.

Arielle said...

I say go with 3. It's cute and fun without trying too hard. I think 4 looks too secretary. And 6? I hate orange.

Lisa Chelle said...

The color sucks, but I think 6 screams sexy..

ACB said...

Option 3 - Classy yet sassy!

jen - tsk said...

1 and 5 get my vote!!!

Angela said...

Dress #1 for sure!!

Vanessa said...

six!

Jessica said...

Definitely 2

Erica said...

1, 2 or 6!

Court said...

I say go with #2!!!!!!!!!!!!


This is so baller...I am beginning to design awesome hott and flattering dresses for occassions of this sort! Email me your info and as soon as I get some things into production I will send you a few to wear and review.

Suz said...

either 3 or 4....3 looks a little more versatile but 4 is like hot sexy

personalityandcruelty said...

I personally am in love with #4 but think #2 fits the description of what you're going for better.

Erin said...

I like a lot of those! But 2 for what you describe! Definitely!

cessie said...

Number 5! Number 5!
You want something that looks striking under moving and changing coloured lights, right? So the white of no. 5 should catch colours while the dark blue provides contrast.

Also, I agree w Nico - looks classy.

Go for something unpatterned - NOT #3!

RecoveringActor said...

I heart #1, #4, and #6... but #6 is def my favorite followed very closely by #4.

Meeks said...

I could IMMEDIATELY picture you in 2 and 4. The rest are far too generic and you are nowhere near generic.
I'm so excited for your gig!!! Can't wait until you blow up and I can start selling our Tuscany photos for rent money :)

Hope said...

Definitely one!

Thats one hot dress.

Holly Golightly said...

My vote is for 6. It's edgy and different, but still fun. If you don't want to wear that one, my second vote is a tie for 1 and 5. You can't go wrong with either, and those three are definitely the hottest!

nic said...

First off, hooray for you!

I like the colors on the dark one with splotches. BUT, I seriously love the green skirt of the other one.

Kali said...

Option one or six. Fo sho.

Do I get extra voting privileges for using ghetto slang?

Just A Girl said...

I'm a fan of 2 and 1 (to a slightly lesser extent) - I think it depends on your hair. I LOVE 4 but I don't know if it's right for a show.

Who? Me? said...

I vote for 2. It's not my favorite of the options you gave, but it'll look great under the lights, cover up the girls, and leave you room to move. Go with 2. Good luck! :)

Nic said...

Five!

Hillary said...

I vote for either 3 or 5

Scribbler said...

1 or 6. It's not possible to look sexy without revealing your waist to hip ratio, which disqualifies most of these.

Vanessa said...

I like option one. Smooth and sassy at the same time.

Cass said...

Loving 2 & 6, so very hot.

justjp said...

Clearly option 1 is the best. Why? Cause I said so! In other news, I know nothing about fashion, so any and all commentary should be disregarded.

Mollie said...

2 or 4!

Andrea said...

I really love 5, but since you're performing, I'd go with 6. It's really hot in that humble-retro-sexy-hip Jenny Lewis sort of way.

Des said...

I have to agree with Peter and Matt. It's number one hands down. Although I have to say the model in muber one is the hottest model. So that may have thrown off my judgment a bit. I wonder if you put the model in number one in a different dress, then maybe all of us guys would choose that dress instead...anyway, my vote is number one.

myprettypennies said...

Option 5. So cute!

Ali said...

#2!!

erinwalker said...

I like #1!

Esther said...

Option 1.. :)

SaraDru said...

1 or 6

miss*H said...

2 or 6 for me...they stand out the most

Lindsey said...

#2 or #5!

Sunshine said...

#1, whether you're rockin out or enjoying a snow cone on the flight to your glacier. Love it.

Dionne said...

Ooooh, #1 and #3 for sure!

Mary said...

I vote #1 and #3!

Anonymous said...

3, 5, or 6. But I'm REALLY leaning towards 5.
I cannot picture you wearing number 1 at ALL and I think 2 and 4 are too...casual, i guess?

ANG* said...

ONE!

alishka babushka said...

one

Trixie Firecracker said...

Option 1 looks cute and comfy enough to wear on stage.

just me said...

Oooh, the LAST ONE. Short, short and strapless.

Sex APPEAL.

Jeanne said...

i say 2 or 3

Camels & Chocolate said...

I'm all for TWO. It's extremely sexy without erring on the slutty side.

Meghan said...

Option 6. It's fun, flirty, sexy and creative. Just make sure it's got double sided tape if you like to jump around a lot. Plus brunettes tend to look smokin in orange.

Jenni said...

Definitely number 6. It's the best and I'd be jealous of the girl jamming out in this get-up! Good Luck girl!

Sebastian said...

Six, but only if there's photos of you wearing it.

Kristin said...

1 or 5. And my hubs would definitely be there if he could if not just for the PBR. No joke.

k.l. said...

ONE OR TWO! NOTHING ELSE! seriously.

lovelila said...

I'm really liking 2! It just has that rock band-y feel to it... I dunno why, but TWO!

Jen said...

Anything except two or three ... I think all the rest are smokin'!

Are you keeping a tally of votes? Heehee.

Amanda said...

My vote is for number two. It screams rockstar. The other five are all cute, but you're not going for cute, right?

Felisa said...

1 or 5 for sure!

Kiley said...

option one, most definitely.

i was going to say 6, but i understand the bloating dilemma. you never gonna know WHAT you'll feel like that day, or how many donuts you've eaten out of nervousness. ;) donuts always tend to ruin my outfits on important occasions.

Lola said...

Wow! I am so impressed with myself. I'm over 40 and live in Illinois and I know who Au Revoir Simone are. Awesome gig!

I would definitely go with #1, because you can't go wrong with black and it's hot. If #6 were black I would go for it because of the boobage factor. It's hot, but not so much in that color.

Good luck!

Blair said...

One. Def.

roxxiee said...

CINCO, FIVE, 5 !

floreta said...

one or four!

stefanie said...

Option 1 is too boring.

Option 2 looks like warm weather scrubs.

Option 3-this is a good one-feminine but not fussy, all you need is some great colorful heels.

Option 4-this is a cute option, & people won't expect this look

Option 5-I like this one because its a simple, classy look.

Option 6-It's not a "hot" outfit guys will appreciate, only some female fans will like this look.

sid said...

I agree with Shine. Option number 1 or 6.

Serena said...

Option 2 - it's amazing! Sexy and quirky at the same time!

Kristina said...

I really like #5, but they are all cute. If you go with 5 really funk it up with some great shoes and accessories.

ashley.star said...

1, 5, or 6.

Cute clothes! You should have given us links so we could find them. :)

brookem said...

ONE!

Jess aka Nerdy Girl said...

2-No doubt about it.

bETH vAUGHN said...

Definitely 2 or 3. Both make you look like you belong at Cochella.

DShan said...

Option One, but you gotta BANG OUT the accessories. Color it up.

Dress is sexy.

Sexay.

Brooke said...

Option 2!

bloggingbarbie said...

i really like 5. honestly? its tight in all the right places, allows for shocasing of the boobs, legs, and collarbone (sexiness) and still looks like you can PERFORM in it...know what i mean?

i'm sure you'll be great! break a leg! or as my old dance teacher said instead, "Merde!" (I know. Hilarious.) xoxo.

readsalot said...

5. So cute.

Miss Ramona said...

2,4, or 5. With 4, you can kill two birds with one stone because you will be band fantasy girl And dirty teacher fantasy girl

Super Careo said...

I like 5, personally

Chelsea Talks Smack said...

I'm the 100th comment yay! WE FOLKS, THE DECISION STILL HASN'T BEEN MADE.....

I WILL POST A PIC OF THE SHOW AND WHICH ONE I DECIDED.

Thanks for your opinions! All the men like the same one....interesting....

The dresses, for those who asked, are from Urban Outiftters :)

Sebastian said...

I noticed the same thing...

I just hoped you wouldn't be bouncing around too much while you sang.

Or... actually...

krystal said...

1!

Rachel said...

one and two are hideous...sorry.
DEFINITELY five or six

The Politic's Chick said...

Damn, I hope I'm not too late for the voting. Five, Defintely Five.

Reasons:

1. Girly but still indie rock queen enough.

2. Neckline is screaming out for those oh so necessary layered necklaces.

3. It can work with flats, heels, or kick ass boots.

4. You'll look great rocking out around the stage in it.

samantha said...

Number two. It will look awesome in pictures from most angles, will be comfortable for rocking out, and no one will be able to tell if you get all sweaty because of the pattern.

[F]oxymoron said...

*** Nine squared divided by twenty-seven minus two... that's sexy! ***

Melissa Leeanne said...

Personal choices: 1, 6, 5. In that order. I think that 1 would be sassy as hell with some rock'n'roll accessories and some sexy hair. Plus it seems less likely to make you famous for a wardrobe malfunction.

Dandy said...

I love #1,4 and 6..but,because you are gorgeous and would look great in a burlap bag, my vote doesn't even matter!!!!!!!!!
I love you and everything that you do!!!! Who am I?....hint....Bean!!!!Break a leg on Sunday!!!!

Surfergrrl said...

#1

ChinkyGirLMeL said...

I'd definitely go for the 6th one! That is really awesome. And if they had that in a shade of yellow that would totally be a really hot summer outfit. =)

mylittle20slife said...

Definitely option 3!! The bright colors on top, sexy black on bottom and shortness is bound to make them all swoon. Go Girl!

Doniree said...

SO EXCITING! Au Revoir Simone IS a big deal, and you're so fantastic to have this opportunity! That being said, I vote 2 and 5. HOT!

ceecee said...

Oh my, all those outfits are super cute...but I would have to go with #1 or #6 (#6 is super hot ;))

Annie Wonder said...

six, then two. Don't wear black! It will be too dark in there already. WHY are you not linking these dresses so I can go buy them??

Abra said...

this is late... but one or six. those are definitely the hottest dresses. i don't know the vibe of your band though... so for something indie-esque, two or four COULD work. i'm not obsessed with either, and between the two i'd go for four. three looks young, and i think the cut of five looks weird... but it could work if it looks hot on you. but yeah. DEFINITELY one or six if you can :)

Ace said...

Chels, I am terribly jealous. Please let me know next time you're playing. I've just started a band, we're a little baby band of my roommates playing and writing together. We're busking around Brooklyn, but none the less, it makes my day to sing with them. It's an all girl folk band so our look is pretty much flowery dresses and loose hair but I love love love the hot rock chick vibe. More pics please!

Holly said...

2 or 4!

Nicole Marie said...

2,3,5 love!!

Anonymous said...

i was googling something else can came across you blog.
BUT definitely #1 is the way to go for the hot band chick to be taken seriously.
#6 is cute for any other occasion and would do if you were a lone singer.
anyways good luck on reading through so much feedback
