I never thought I'd wish for the dress code for a party to be "tacky Christmas sweater," but I'm there. I'm longing for the days of the red sweatshirt that I appliqued a Christmas tree onto - complete with glittery puff paint and jingle bells. I sounded like a cat, but I loved that sweatshirt.
We are going to some fancy dinner tomorrow night with our neighbors - the Colonel and his wife - and I..... well, I guess all of my nice dresses have shrunk. Shrank? Shrunken? Whatever. (Regardless, they must have all gotten smaller, because surely it has nothing to do with the fact that I haven't been to the gym in a month and have eaten my way through the semester!)
I'm going to have to get my "fancy" on. (Unrelated - I love that line in that Reba MacIntyre song.... something like, "I mighta been born just plain white trash, but Fancy was my name.")
Fortunately, I bought the Nordstrom Rack groupon not too long ago and was able to find a decent dress and was out of there for about $7. Sweet!
Sidenote - can I wear the same dress to a wedding in January if it is off-white? What are the rules regarding that?
Okay - never mind. I told Larry to call Colonel and get a few details and we aren't going anymore. Which is fine - I still got a dress for $7. I guess I should still know the rules for wearing off-white to a winter wedding so that I know if I am breaking them or not when I show up in it.
