Excited ! That will be fun i guess !!! Hard decision what to wear... I love the floral vintage outfit in the middle of row no.7 its just gorgeous and fits you so well ! Have fun dear and tell us ALL details ! XX Tani

edie pop said...

A dress should say: 'Hello I'm Sarah, I'm beautiful, clever, funny, sexy, in one word:Fabulous!'and usually all your outfits well explain all about you!!But to choose only one of your wonderful dresses is so difficult!
Have you considered a dress change during the date?Well, if the answer is 'no' this jumpsuit is one of my favourite:

Love you more than Steve Buscemi!!!

these men aren't going to know what's hit them when a stunner like you turns up. gawd I don't know what to suggest, that black and white op-art dress is pretty sexy but not slutty. xxxxx

Speed dating! Oh My! Iwonder fi it's still happen in Montreal.
Most people i know met their mate through Internet, i met Mr D through Internet.

My absolute fav among your gorgeous outfit and it would perfect for speed dating is the strippy top and skirt with the yellow scarf. I think it shows your uniqueness plus a dash of color being the yellow scarf. I would put something yellow in your hair as well

It should be fun hearing all the details cause i'm sure you'll meet some strange ones

You could wear a burlap sack and look gorgeous, Sarah! Don't ask me to choose one as they're all lovely. I think it's important to be you and wear what makes you feel like a million bucks at the moment you get dressed (but you simply must consider wearing your hair down as it looks kick ass sexy like that). And kudos for you for trying speed-dating! I never did it when single, though I did subscribe to some of the online sites. Looking forward to hearing of your adventures! Xoxo

Loo xx from Jumbles and Pompoms said...

Egads! What to wear? What a question! If I had to choose I'd say the blue dress (the pic of you by the tree) or the black and white stripey. And flowers. Sacramento is right about the flowers. Glad you're safe and can't wait to hear all the gory details about speed dating. xx

PinkCheetahVintage said...

I love to hear dating details, it's one of my few girly traits lolzzzz. You're lucky you're so pretty and have so many fun outfits to choose from... For a date, I might choose 8, 11, 13, 17 :)) Glad to see that things are looking up where you are now!

Carina Rosenholm said...

Love the maxi dress With flowers on , green and Pink with green head Pierce.
So looking forward to hear about the speed date!

pastcaring said...

Well, just for starters, I need to say right now that you will be FAR too good for them. And I know you haven't been yet, but I still know this is true. So whatever you wear, you will outshine and outfunny and outclass and outswear and outclever those poor blokes. They'd better be ready!
Wear any of the above. My heart is always with colour and flowers, but since you couldn't look bad if you tried, just go for it and be fabulous!
Looking forward to hearing how it goes. Don't make too much mincemeat out of them, they're only human.... xxxxx

thorne garnet said...

The all yellow one, or maybe the pink one with the 60's hair. But what do I know, I haven't been on a date since 1978!

Hollie "Jet" Black-Ramsey said...

I vote for #18- the bubble gum pink dress with the green belt

Joni said...

Well, my votes go to the two black and white numbers next to each other. One has a red belt and the other has a yellow scarf. You are a knock out!

MistressCatgirl said...

Whatever you wear I'm sure you'll look fabulous! I'm very fond of the yellow 1950s dress but wear whatever makes you feel wonderful and comfortable.

Connie said...

Oh I absolutely agree. Flowers flowers flowers. Flower bomb those guys!! They won't know what hit them. Good luck, Doll.

freckleface said...

Wow, you haven't made it easy have you? I love so many of them. My absolute favourite would be the pink floral maxi with the green floral headdress, but I also love the blue embroidered skirt outfit and the white loose dress in the bottom as well as the stripy black pinafore outfit. The good news is that if you strike lucky you've got enough outfits for 27 dates! :) xxx

Helga! said...

O, FARK, I love ALL these fabularse numbers! I would totally be rubbing myself all over you whichever of these you wore! I reckon something loud and uber colourful is the go!
EEEEEK! It's gonna be hilarious! And a bit weird! I reckon you're going at it with a great attitude, so you'll have a blast! Can't wait for the stories. They'll make us laugh, make us cry and make us HURL!
You're a Rockstar looking for a potential consort!
I fecking love and adore you more than fruity frocks and headpieces!

Forest City Fashionista said...

You could wear anything and your true awesomeness would shine through, but if you really care what I think, I would say that any of the outfits in the 5th row of photos would be perfect - you look so "SARAH" in your 50's style dresses with the full skirts that I think you should wear one of those. The yellow print one is pretty too, as is the first one in the last row.

I want details! Even the embarrassing ones...

Macy said...

Speed dating?? So, like, 30 seconds max to make an impression??
No pressure then.
Here's my thoughts: imagine the man you want to meet. Imagine who he wants to meet.... dress like her.

Or failing that, fifth row down right.

You're welcome...

Teresa said...

I've always wondered what speed dating is like so I'll be interested to hear what you have to say about it!

I'd wear one of your pretty yellow dresses.

Vintage Coconut said...

"OH MAH GOODNESS" The speed dating segments on movies are ALWAYS my favorite so I cannot wait to hear what happens and who you meet. *Rubs hands together gleefully*

AND..... A LOVELY BUNCH OF COCONUTS!
(Made me "A coconut" Smile)

menopauselsupermodel said...

I vote for the black and white striped dress with the yellow scarf!! You'll look fabulous no matter what you wear!! Those guys won't know what hit them!!

Krista Gassib said...

Fun! Crazy! Brave of you! I can't wait to hear the details! I say wear whatever makes you feel like the sexiest most magnificent bad ass!

Kat said...

I love all your outfits so it's hard to choose! But I think my favourite on here would have to be the green top and the blue wrap skirt down the bottom. I say wear lots of colour and show your personality at it's fullest. That way if you meet someone nice you know they like you for you. Not that I think you could be anything but you! Goodluck and I can't wait to hear all the stories.

one denim bird said...

Does speed dating allow for wardrobe changes in between??? Go for it Girl x

two squirrels said...

yay Sarah my sister did this a few months ago, she said it was fun and really weird all rolled into one!!!!! Man I would love to speed date your wardrobe!!!!!!!! Frickin amazing.
I so cann't pick an outfit, you are to gorgeous in them all!!!!!!!
Go floral you always look so pretty in floral...........anyway they are going to be blown away know matter what you wear.
Best wishes my cute wee speed dater......
Love V

Sue W @ Living the Good Life said...

Combine speed outfit changing with the speed dating and wear them all! Go on, I dare ya! :D

Val Sparkle said...

Fifth one down on the left, or else the bottom right. Or anything in between.

Good luck with the speed dating. At least you don't have to waste time if you know someone's a dud!

Indigo Violet said...

So many clothes, so few men. I went speed dating a few years ago and met a decent bloke but I've had runs in my tights that were longer than that particular relationship! We princesses have to kiss a few frogs blah blah blah.

Marla Robinson said...

I would probably go with the third one on the very right and the top. I love that reddish top with the skirt. Very sophisticated for speed dating.

Ulla-Marie Nilsson said...

Hard to choose (but a great idea and I love that you invite us readers to vote). Ulla-Maries vote goes to ... (drums) ... outfit nr 4! Good luck to THEM!

delia hornbook said...

ooohhhh well done you how bloody exciting :-) I love you in the blue and white dress standing by the tree with the little blue cardigan i also love you in the yellow flower dress just a little further down. It brings out the warmth and the beauty in you to me. The girly and soft side but with yout hair up and dressed it screams im a lady in control now dont mess with me :-) Good luck lovely i cant wait to hear all about it and see what you wear, dee xxx

shooting star said...

hey all outfits are great but love th5 5th one...pink cardigan and flower in your head...and shades!!!

speed dating...cool!! let us know how it went!!!

Miss Maple said...

What a crazy idea! I'd never have the guts to do something like that. But you're so adventurous and courageous. You want my advice? For that I'm brave enough. (Chicken me!) I'd take the yellow dress and the yellow flower in the hair. Yellow is a bright colour and suits you well. Good luck!

Linda Wolf said...

Good to hear you are keeping your spirits up amongst all the chaos, Sarah.

Given the hot weather, I vote for the black and white horizontal striped crop pants and red bolero. So darn cute!

cb said...

I hope the speed dating is fun and you walk away with many suiters, they would be stupid to pass such a hot thing like you up! Xoxo

look see said...

All of these outfits are completely glorious - but I keep getting drawn to the fifth one for some reason? It's so lovely and bright!

Good luck! I've never done the speed dating thing (I've had a fair crack at internet dating and the less said about that the better, frankly) - so you're a far braver woman than I! (But I knew that already!!) xx

Stacey said...

Well, you will look amazing no matter what you wear! I can't wait to hear the details. Go get 'em!

The Vegetable Assassin said...

Well, clearly you'd pull ANY of those off, but my vote? TOP RIGHT! Sexy, sophisticated and awesome all at the same time. YUP!

The Grande Dame said...

Just catching up now! I really hope your little shack and YOU are safe and well. I've had family on fire alert too. For speed dating, I think my favourite look from your little collage is the stripey pj pants & red cardi combination. It's one of my favourites of all your looks. Or maybe one of your heavenly maxi dresses. Either way I want to know how it goes! xx

karensomethingorother said...

Hooray for speed dating! Those poor saps will have boners for the rest of the day.

Ooo...what would I vote for you to wear? Oo..I am partial to the second row down, middle picture with the lovely floral dress and pink cardi. That outfit kicks ass too. Good luck lovely Sarah!

Sue said...

My vote goes for the floral dress with the hot pink cardy and BIG hair, you so have to do your BIG hair!! Good luck, not that you need it, you will be swamped with prospects!!

Ofelia said...

My vote is for outfit umber 13; the black and white dress with the red belt. Its a smart, sexy and very confident look.
Have a lovely weekend,

CityScape Skybaby said...

I love all the outfits Sarah, whatever you wear will look great, but if I had to pick I'd say the top right hand one, it just has a sort of sexy but reserved look, like the film 'Secretary' that sort of says look but don't touch! You're so brave and I'm looking forward to you blogging about your speed dating night! xx

Thick Threads said...

wow speed dating! sounds really fun, i think you'll do great. I really think anything from this list of options would be a knock out. I have to be honest and say i'm really looking forward to your update on how it went :) good luck!
xx

Jake said...

I can't wait for the stories! The 9th little yellow dress is a fabulous choice. Pretty yet mischievous.

Truly Madly Beauty said...

Wooooo! Way to go Sarah, so excited for you! :D You'll be fabulous doll, whatever ya wear! Ooooh it was a toughie but I think I'm gonna go for the first dress in the last row...hot! :D
