I can't see the picture.

 

It was big when I posted it and when I checked the thread later, I think someone shrunk it! :-(

Jenny,

Thanks for sharing your picture. The pictures in this thread helped me to see that I will not be the only guy not wearing a tux. You two are an attractive couple.

 

Could you please tell me how you got your large picture right in the posting? On my roll call thread (i.e., Mariner of the Seas - July 3, 2005), we want ot share our photos with wach other prior to broading so that it will enhance out Meet and Mingle experience.

 

Thanks,

Barry

I used photobucket.com, uploaded some of my pics to their site and they allow you to increase/decrease the size of the pictures. It was pretty easy. :o Then when you want to add pictures to your posts, click the insert image icon on the edit tool bar and copy and paste the URL that photobucket lists under each individual picture. There might be an easier way to do this, but I am not aware of it yet! Let me know if it works for you! Good luck! :p

Jenny,

Click the picture for a larger view. I am in a rent-a-tux. Kris, my wife, is in a 50 year-old dress made by her mother.

 

Barry - Get the tux. It'll make her eyes sparkle...

Of course, choosing the right accessories on formal nights is very important...

Here's what we wore the second formal night...which is usually a little less formal...if that makes any sense.

 

I purchase two new dresses for our upcoming cruise. Both black cocktail dresses.

I am having trouble posting. It keeps saying it is to large. But I check the one posted and it is smaller than what you have. So how did you post it??

Are you using the "Attach Files" function? What is the file format of the picture (.jpg, .gif, etc.)?

 

The dimensions of the picture (ex: 3" x 4") don't matter - it is the file size as measured in KiloBytes that counts. It looks like the only picture in this thread to be stored using the 'attach file' function is in post #14 by TamaLee. That picture is 25.8 KB. The other pictures (including mine) are stored elsewhere on the web and are not subject to any file size limitations of the attach feature. Note that typical digital pictures as downloaded from a camera are 500-800+ KB, which is probably way too big. There are various ways of making the file size smaller while maintaining acceptable quality.

 

So, what is the file size of the picture? You can determine this by locating the file on your hard drive, right-clicking it with the mouse, and selecting 'properties'. An information box will appear, and among other tidbits, give you the filesize in 'KB'.

I am so glad someone started this thread. I was beginning to wonder if my formal dress was too formal. Now I think I'll be ok. I'll be wearing a floor length A-Line gown in a burgundy silky fabric. I'd add a photo, but apparently I am little technologically challenged today.

OK, I'll just have to contribute here. I know that the OP was asking about women's clothing, but she doesn't specifically say women only. So..... here I am in my formal clothes:

The "R" in my member name is for Robertson. That is my Clan's tartan in my kilt.

This is one dress I'll wear on our formal night. We sail on HAL Zuiderdam tomorrow! I picked this up at Dillards on sale for way less than the listed price.

Here is the formal outfit I wore on RCI Enchantment of the Seas in November. I'm on the right and the MIL is on the left.

This was from our honeymoon cruise on Carnival - it's not a great shot but you get the idea.

Our first HAL cruise on the Zaandam. Here's a picture of my MIL & FIL.

Here is what I wore on HAL Zaandam cruise. It's floor length fully beaded evening gown.

and the front. It's a A-line black satin with silver embroidered flowers and black accent beeds.

HAL was the most formal and Carnival the most relaxed. RCI fell in between the two. I enjoyed them all for different reasons.

 

BTW - I purchased the same dress as the OP is wearing but with turquoise trim. I'm wearing it for informal night.
