This is what I'm wearing Right This Second. Usually there is a bit of a delay between when I take photos of my outfits and when I actually post them, but I overestimated how long it would take me to get ready, so I've been having a solo dance party in the living room. And then I realized, Oh hey, I could, you know, update my blog!
I'm a little dressy because there is a function for the Mister's ship tonight, and since now I'm his fiancee, which is a little more official than girlfriend, I'm supposed to make a good impression. Or something. I don't know. I just look at it as an excuse to wear my cute new shoes.
Did you see my shoes? Want to hear something awesome? I had a coupon for DSW for $20 off any shoes $49 or more. And I had my eyes on a DIFFERENT pair of GUESS black sandal wedges at the DSW in Minneapolis, but I didn't get a chance to go buy them when I was up there. Well, the coupon was expiring yesterday and I couldn't just let a deal like that go to waste. So, I asked the Mister to take me to DSW. And you know what? He totally did. And he waited patiently while I tried on the OTHER shoes and then when I found THESE shoes and then had to walk all over the damn store to decide which ones to get. And when I had to just browse through the clearance section. And then he even took me over to the mall so I could check out Macy's & Dillard's to see if I could find a formal gown for ANOTHER function next month. But that function is way fancier. Hence the search for the gown.
Do you know how hard it is to find a formal gown that is not ridiculously expensive? I'll tell you. It's hard. The problem is that most of the gowns are either too prom-y or too mother-of-the-bride-y. And I don't want to look like a ho, because, good impressions, but I don't want to look like someone's mom. I think that maybe what I will eventually do is get someone to take me to David's Bridal and I'll buy a basic black bridesmaid dress or something and fancy it up with some cute shoes & accessories. If only I could wear these shoes. They are so freaking cute and awesomely comfortable. That's the best part of wedges. Maybe I'll wear wedges for my wedding.
