Help Bonggamom Choose an Outfit to the American Idol Finals (and enter to win an American Idol Cafe Press shirt!)



There's a bigger smile on my face and an extra spring in my step these days, and if you've been reading my blog, you'll know why: I'm going to watch the American Idols finals live on May 25 and 26! Thanks to you, my Bonggamom Finds supporters, I was able to encourage enough people to enter the Cafe Press American Idol Sweepstakes to win a trip of my own. And I would be perfectly happy if not for this one burning question that I have:

What should I wear??

Yes, the age-old question. Fortunately, Cafe Press has come to the rescue by providing me with an American Idol-themed Cafe Press shirt for my very own. I'm having a really hard time choosing which shirt to wear (which is not surprising, considering that Cafe Press has thousands of American Idol-themed gift items and other personalized gifts to suit anyone's taste and style).

Should I go with the more familiar name and logo?


Should I go with the logo but add a unique twist?



Should I trumpet one of the show's most recognizable catch phrases?



Should I declare my support for my favorite Season 9 candidate?



Should I show my love for my favorite American Idol of all time?



Even when I do finally decide which shirt to get (and I'd better decide soon, because we're down to the final 3 and the finals are two weeks away!), the results show at the Nokia theater is likely to be a more formal affair, so I still need to put together a decent outfit that's as hip and bongga as American Idol show itself.

Now here's where you can help me out.....

ooh the yellow tank would be cute with leather pants. But that would be hot. Maybe do like a fancy rock? A cute black dress and wear rocker jewelry and some sort of funky shoe?
Or cute black jeans with the yellow tank?
I wasn't helpful was I?

I'm so jealous! I would love to go to the final. I'm sure you will have a great time no matter what you wear.
Since it's the final show everyone seems to dress up. So a little black dress with lots of bling would be great!

Everyone dresses nice for the final show. I'd say a nice dressy top with dark wash jeans. Maybe a silk top? Something shiny and pretty.

I would wear a "Little" Black dress

Anne J on May 21, 2010 at 12:30 PM said...

I like the Black going to hollywood tee, but it is kind of informal for the finals. I think you should go with jeans, a sparkly shirt and high heeled sandals.
