I Am Terrible

I was very bad just now. I bought a new dress. Because I don’t already have a billion, and I obviously needed one more. I believe my birthday dinner will now require three outfit changes since that is the only feasible way for me to wear all of them any time soon. Every hour, on the hour, I will step out to the restroom and emerge in a new outfit. Why hadn’t I thought of this before? Genius!What do you mean that is a terrible idea? Royalty does this all the time. You mean I am not a princess?

In the meantime (while you make up your mind as to whether this is a good idea or not), this is what it looks like (

Hopefully this one fits as well as the last one did.

Wordless Wednesday

Bought dress… dress fits…. I look terrified in this picture.
Mary and I huddling and cold….
I bought an egg frying pan that comes with a 39 page instruction manual in five different languages…
Kids at the park…. Mary is pushing the seesaw…
Sat at this red light three times… took a picture…
Small children are like cats… put food on the floor and they congregate…
Hair turned out nice this time!

A New Dress

I bought a dress. I know, shocking. But this dress is special because I bought it online, something I have never done before.I have been actively wanting this dress for almost a year now (

But what if her mid thigh form fitting dress is past the knee and bulky on me? Yes, I know I can return it, but that seems like quite the hassle.

I have similar dresses, so I know the style works for me. But these were store bought, and tried on a zillion times. (The dress in the picture below is actually very similar in style to the one above, but in a different color and not a turtle neck).

I have been hesitant about online shopping because I have bought tops and jackets online before, and they have never fit properly. The problem is usually the model representation on the site. She looks fabulous, but she has curves, is probably a good five inches taller than me, and has more than likely had the clothes tailored to her exact dimensions.

However, winter is coming, and the dress just went on sale, and I have a new pair of black boots… so…. wish me luck!
