Hubby is hosting a party at a conference.
I have nothing new to wear. It would be terribly embarrassing for me to be in the same dress as all the pictures from last time we did this.
So I went downtown to shop today. Saw lots of cute summer dresses on sale so I tried some things on.
One thing I have learned about clothes. You can never tell whether something is going to look WOW or look OUCH unless you try them on.
So I gathered a bunch of dresses and took them into the dressing room.
I decided to try everything on and put them in a NO WAY stack. Or a MAYBE pile. And a WINNER group.
This is what happened.
Everything ended up in the WINNER pile.
Nothing was perfect but everything looked and felt good. What to do?
I tried everything on again.
Looked to see how they looked from the back.
See. I get very scientific about this.
Then I looked at price.
And then I ended up with this.
I tried them all on again.
One showed too much cleavage for church. It’s not often that I put something on and think that’s a little hoochie mama much for sitting in worship before our Lord.
A cocktail party is an entirely different matter. So the cleavage dress stayed in the winner pile.
Then I don’t like my short legs in short skirts.
Then one dress made me look like I was about three months along. Will need some Spanx if I get that one.
Then shoes. What would I do about shoes for some of these because my shoe collection is on life support.
Finally when taking money, cleavage, tummy, shoes, stumpy legs into account, there were three I really liked.
So I bought them.
Now let’s just hope hubby misses this post.
Have you bought any new clothes lately? Or do you deserve any new clothes even if you haven’t bought any?
