I am completely in love with the dress and shoes that I bought for my sister in laws wedding!
A couple of weeks ago I went to Fashion Bug and picked out a ho hum dress. I wasnâ€™t to happy with it but I thought I could keep the receipt and still look around for a better dress. If I found one I would take the first dress back to Fashion Bug and if not, well I would have a decent dress for the wedding.
One night last week I was bored and was searching online for some dresses at local stores around here and I found a really cute mango colored dress on JC Pennyâ€™s website. It was all summery and would be perfect for the wedding so I informed Mike that the next day we where going to stop at the mall so I could hopefully find that dress. Of course they didnâ€™t have it so I just went through and picked some dresses to try one. The last one I picked up was the cutest little thing and I thought there is no way I would look good in that. It was a short, halter dress and I have shitty legs and flabby arms but my arms can be covered up with a matching cardigan sweater (which I have).
I finally find a dressing room that was open and I try on all the dresses. One by one I go down the line, hating everyone I try on. This one makes me look like I am grape, this one makes me look like I am built like a line backer, one excuse after the other. So I am down to the last dress, the cute little thing that I wanted but didnâ€™t think it would look good on me. So, I try it on. Not wanting to look into the mirror until I have the whole thing on. So through tightly closed eye lids I slip the dress on and took a nervous sigh and opened my eyes. And there, looking back at me was myself looking not half bad. I was impressed to say the least. This dress showed off my good points (nice chest and smaller waist). And even though it does show off my crappy legs, I bought it anyway.
The price tag said $70 but thank God it was on sale and I only paid $49.99 for it.
A couple of days later I went looking for shoes and found a pair at Target that matched perfectly with my cute little girly dress.
So I have my cute dress, cute shoes and cute cardigan sweater and I am actually happy.
