Let's take a little stroll together on a prom dress shopping trip.
For the record, the night we went dress shopping was the night of the Miss America Pageant. And lo and behold what did we see on the tv? THIS dress! Except in white.
Most of the dresses she tried on were too big. THis one was about 2 sizes two big, but she just wanted to get a feel for the look on her.
And this one was HUGE. But it was enough to let her know if she'd be cool with the color, style, etc.
I personally liked this one. Classic. A jersey-esque material. Would be great to have into college for cocktail/ evening parties and formals. But not enough bling for miss thing!
This one had a prety back and I liked the material again. She might need some tighter panties, but that's for discussion on a nother day.
Speaking of tighter panties... we found this awesome little cupcake shop! So delish!!
Oh. OK. Back to MA!
Isn;t that a good look. ANd just like Ellie, she could size up an entire look by putting on a dress. "Well, of course I'd have my hair up with this one. and long showy earrings..." Yeah.. Of course!
I am SOOO ready for planting my annuals and getting my hands in the dirt. COme on spring!! (There's a bird)
We did a little shopping for me too that day. I showed MA... if I were skinny, this is how I'd dress. I'd have skinny legs and would wear comfy little artsy jersey skirts, because my butt would be so tiny too.
Ok. Back to MA. I wasn't a fan of the nude palette.
My complete outfit. I'd wear a thin tee shirt, because I wouldn't have to worry that the fabric would show my fat rolls. And of course, it'd always be bright. Anything with pompom ball trim on it is OK with me.
As in ANNNNYYYY of these!! I got the lime green one with hot pink balls. (and the lime green with turquoise fringe on the bottom pallette)
Oh yeah! I have the wallet that corresponds with this and is made by the same company. IN that skinny world, my boobs wouldn't be ENORMOUS and I could actually wear these cute little tees! If I wore it now, It'd say, "Think HAPPY BE Happy".
I am so inspired by fun window displays!
Ok new dress shop.
Look at all the colors! And she was pretty much going black and white. Period.
I convinced her to go eat ceniche with me. It was so dang good.
I was just the dress toter. I would haul em in and out of the dressing room, while her highness tilted her head and checked herself out! It's her world, I just live in it!
And after about 20 dresses tried on, and about 200 looked at....
We trucked it on back home, down Interstate 20, with absolutely nothing!
But, it was a memory made!
And because she will be going to college in a few months, we need to make all the memories we can!
