So, two of the dresses have arrived. One I completely am head of heels for (good job, me!), and the other…well, let’s just say the question, “What was I thinking???” comes into mind. I definitely need a new hobby while having a cocktail.
Don’t get me wrong the dress isn’t hideous beyond compare, but it most likely will end up being a Halloween costume or just a costume piece for a themed 1950s secretary party where shoulder pads are okay. On the other hand, if I could find a seamstress who wouldn’t mind altering the crap out of this dress (get rid of the shoulder pads, shorten the sleeves, pull in the mid section, maybe make it into a skirt or a curtain) I think we could have something more suitable to my taste. Does anyone know a seamstress that would work for free or for food and cocktails and lives in New York? We shall see.
Well, I decided to see if I could spice things up with this dress. It was a kind of crappy week in the city. Temperature wise, it was perfect. Yet, it rained off and on and it made for the perfect excuse to stay in almost every night. On Wednesday night I stayed in and decided to give the dress a chance. I decided to get all dolled up and try accent pieces with the dress, pinning it, and then I just gave up and decided to just do my hair and make up towards the style of the dress.
I know what you’re thinking. And, yes, I had a glass of prosecco with this.
The prosecco was only to make the look classy. I just laughed at myself while typing that. No, it was because prosecco sounded so damn good at the time there was no reason to not have any. Also, to make the night more fun for the Party of 1 I was having, I downloaded an entire playlist dedicated to Bonnaroo. Did I mention the best music festival ever is happening right now? Well, it is. So, the prosecco was to keep it classy and to enjoy while listening to music. There, that just made me nod my head in agreement and giggle only slightly.
Ladies, if you haven’t in awhile, dress up and take yourself out. It is so much fun. Go by yourself, or with friends, but just do it. I can’t tell you how much fun it is to wake up the next day and see red lipstick stains on five different glasses (I drink way too much water on a usual basis and regardless of the time of day, I am bound to lose my water glass so I just pour another one), a half glass of prosecco (it was good, I was just more into dancing in heels and lipstick), and a dress I’ll probably not wear again. It was all fun to be had, and I couldn’t have asked for a better night in. What would have made it better would have been going out, but as I mentioned it was rainy and yucky. But, yes, ladies. Treat yo’self.
Now, go buy that never-to-be-worn dress (actually, don’t…buy one you want to wear and wear it often), a bottle of prosecco, and put on a “I feel like dancing” playlist.
