Hey guys, a follow up to my post from yesterday, I did find a dress! I left my husband at home (which he thanked me profusely for when I returned, dress and new clutch in hand), and it only took 3 hours, 4 stores, and about 50 dresses, but I did it!
I finally OWN a little black dress!
Now I just have to figure out the details. The knee length dress has spaghetti straps, a plunging sweetheart neckline and a black and white ribbon sash just below the bust. Time to go bra shopping! Then, accessories. I bought the clutch yesterday, which is a soft black to match the dress, I’m not sure if i’ll try and embellish that or just leave it plain and let my jewelry do the talking. I’ll need a necklace of some sort. I do have a couple of pairs of earrings that might work, depending on the look I want to try and pull off.
Oh and the fabric flows away from the body, which hides the little belly I’m still trying to work off. I’m so excited! I have some fairly plain black heels with a faux croc detail on the toe and a small non-shiny grey metal buckle, which I may just wear bare legged/footed.
I don’t think I could be more excited, well, if my belly was all gone and it was actually going to be WARM instead of like, negative zero (I know that’s not a real number) and I could wear some new strappy sandals, that would be even better… maybe on our vacation later this winter…
