Since it is February I have to post that the Mother Son Dance at my sons prep school is right around the corner. March 10 to be exact. So I have been shopping for dresses. Every year I think of what I want my dress to be like and then I look. Some people go shopping first and see what catches their eye. That sounds like the sensible way doesn't it? Well it doesn't work for me. When I get something in my head, it's in there until I find it. So although I must have 8 black cocktail dresses in my closet (no exaggeration) I suddenly had an urge for a black lace dress with a coffee colored or tan like slip. I found one that I loved that Rachel McAdams wore to the premiere of The Vow, the movie I posted about. So weird that she had this on. I loved it. Contacted the designer and of course, its not out yet, will be out in a few weeks and is way too expensive. But now that dress is in my head. So I have been searching for the closest feel to it and I found a dress that I really like. I ordered it and I'm anxiously waiting for it to arrive. Let me know what you think?
The first one is the one I wish I could have (Rachel is wearing it.) The second one is the one I bought.
So I'm thinking of going to Joannes and buying a thick black satin ribbon to use as a sash for the middle. I also will wear it with black velvet heels and skin colored stockings, not black.
It arrives tomorrow. Hopefully I will like the fit or I'll have to send it back and then it will be time to start all over again.
