I found the dress !!!


Well, after much whining, sighing and more whining , my sister and I finally found a dress for my son's wedding.......
It is a soft plum, fits like a glove, right length and the right price....

Makes it look like I have a waist.....Now that wasn't too hard..LOL..Then on my own, I found the most seksi and comfortable shoes:



However, they cost almost as much as the dress...so after a full day of shopping I was exhausted....
Then yesterday, I went with a good friend, we have known , loved and keep each others secrets for 40 years this years...wow...anyway her daughter, same age as mine 27 and same name, except we call her JJ, is getting married also this July....well this time I dragged G kicking , screaming and whining to find a dress ...What a trooper, she tried on more than 30 outfits.. She is petite and apple-shaped and it seems that this year the dresses are made for me..who wonda' thunk that !!!..So next Wednesday, back out we go again..at least she now knows A. what looks good on her and B. what doesn't...Who knew that we could raise 4 kids and 2 husbands, have responsible jobs and yet are dropped to our knees over a "DRESS"..our DHs think we are crazy,...... they just have to rent a tux...did you know that the tux comes with shoes, socks, tie, jacket, pants and vest...NOT fair...LOL
Well ,have a great week-end...I must cleanse, fast or whatever to get ready for another round of DRESS shopping on Tuesday for MOM for the wedding..she is petite and wears a size 14..well that size is scarse as teeth on a hen.....poor Sis , she is taking us shopping....look out world..here we come...waiter i need a drink!!!!!!!!

Congrats on the dress! That is not easy. I absolutely HATE clothes shopping. And special occasion wear is even worse. What a good feeling to finally capture the right one, though.
