I am in the midst (aren't we all) of the cleaning-decorating-party-party dress shopping, airport pickup joy of the season.
Mr. Fix-it's annual Christmas party is this coming Saturday night. It's always a lovely affair and is being held in a wonderful venue called The Abbey. I' am generally a little black dress kind of gal when it comes to dressing up--classic, safe, flattering. I'm trying to shake things up a bit o.m.g.d.i.am.almost.fifty. To that end, I am trying royal purple this year. For $11 at Marshall's, wouldn't you? I have to take the side seams on top in a bit and shorten the straps a smidge, but that's not hard.
My dilemma is what to wear on top. "Cause girlfriend does not do sleeveless anymore. Unless it's with a mid-summer tan and it's 100 degrees outside.
I went shrug shopping. Probably in and out of 8 stores in an hour. Wouldn't you know I'd find something at the very same Marshall's by my house where I bought the dress last Friday. It didn't look then because we were headed to a movie.
Here are the choices (so far, there are three more shopping days until the party). When viewing thse photos please bear in mind that I will be self-tanning for the rest of the week; hopefully that will tone down the glare on my legs. California girls just do not wear pantyhose for anything other than funerals. Also, jewelry will be involved.
First the shrugs, then me in the shrugs.
What say you? One, two or three? Luckily, no matter which one you pick, my entire outfit will still be less than $25 including tax.
