So I went shopping with my fabulous SIL Amanda and my mom. It was really fun, and I was SO thankful to have those ladies there giving me advice! I had a good idea of what I wanted - something in the vein of a sheath dress. Classic, classy, and sophisticated. And I love Calvin Klein's tailoring.
I found this gorgeous navy blue sheath dress at Dressbarn, complete with pearls at the neckline... it was VERY Jackie O. with a bit of Audrey Hepburn. Which pretty much equals AMAZING in my book. What can I say, those ladies were darn classy.
Alas, it was NOT in my size. I needed one size up in order to... you know, sit and breathe at the same time.
So onward and upward. We went to Carson Pierre Scott, which usually has some good finds. I am not kidding when I tell you that I tried on at least 3 dozen dresses... maybe 4. And the dressing rooms were apparently not air conditioned. It was disgusting.
BUT, at the end I had two really cute dresses! And Amanda picked out BOTH dresses. I don't have any pictures of them on me at the moment, but I do plan on wearing the HECK out of them, so hopefully I will have some soon. And I think that either my dad or my friend Kathy has pictures of the wedding reception.
I can't find a picture of the dress I wore to the bachelorette party, but here is the dress I got for the wedding:
Not a lot. Maybe a scarf. And some flats. It's so fun to incorporate just a LITTLE bit into an outfit. So here are the flats I'm considering:
And this scarf:
It's a little Grrrrr. A little meow.
Any other closeted animal print fans out there??
