My guy came home one day last week to let me know that we had been invited to a downtown, work related event – something fancier than anything we have ever been to. This no doubt means that Doc Martens nor spray painted shoes will be acceptable. I have one month to find a nice dress and an appropriate pair of shoes. My only problem is, I haven’t had to really dress up as a grown up, and I don’t know what to wear! I guess I could go with the velvet dress I have in my closet, that is fancy, and then only have to find some shoes. But I have been given the go ahead to find myself something nice, so why go with what I already have? Any excuse to go shopping, right!
I always see pretty, fancy dresses online that I only wish I had an occasion to wear, but now that I am looking, I don’t know what I want to get. I have only looked on three sites, so really the whole wide web hasn’t even been touched. Although, finding something online probably isn’t a very good idea, not being able to try it on or anything like that.
The dress will probably be easy once I make it to the big city and get to a real mall. But the shoes, I am dreading the child’s size pair that I may have to settle on. (The one’s without Velcro or butterflies!) Oh, the woes of having a small foot! Now I know why my mom always had such a hard time finding shoes she liked. I remember my high school prom, and the only shoes I found that I kind of liked were from payless and were only worn that one night then immediately gotten rid of. I would like to find a pair that might get worn in another situation. These I may take to finding online. At least I might have a better chance of finding my size. And they have to be pretty, not Doc Marten, Mary Jane pretty! I have these that might be okay if nothing else comes my way.
And so the hunt begins. I am excited and I may even get my hair done. I have NEVER gotten my hair done! I better stop biting my nails and get to the store. April will be here before I know it!
I am headed to the BIG city Friday, and for now, I will stick with online browsing.
