So, I'm going to a wine tasting event with my girlfriends next weekend. It's being held at a very nice hotel (and we've actually snagged a room there for the night, too).
It's very much of a formal event and my girlfriends and I are going shopping for dresses on Thursday. However, I'm having knee surgery Tuesday (nothing major, I tore my meniscus a week ago), and I will more than likely still be wearing a knee brace.
I'm at a loss of what to wear. I could fit the brace under wide leg pants, but then I'm sure to be the only woman in dress pants. I could also wear a long gown, but (once again) I'm sure I'd be the only one.
Do I just say 'fuck it' and rock the brace out in the open, or go for one of two cover-up options I mentioned? Also, I will obviously have to be in flats, too (sucks, because I'm only 5 foot 3).
Y'all totally rock fashion advice, so I welcome any you have!
