that never happens

This week has been, interesting.   Eye opening is perhaps the best way to put it. It’s as if I have a million things running through my head, but at the same time just one thing.   I know that sounds insane, but that’s why this week has just drained me.    The last thing I wanted to do was go shopping last night but I needed to find a formal dress for an event this weekend.  Don’t get me wrong, I normally love shopping.  My co-workers joke that I should become their personal shopper, but when it comes to fancy stuff I always fall flat. I was dreading an evening of self-loathing and trying stuff on (I know I’m an excellent entry for #whitewhine.)

Sidenote, I always dress wrong for shopping, yesterday I had on boots, a dress, a belt, sweater over that and a scarf.  The perfect shopping attire is flip flops, jeans, t-shirt…but I never remember that!!!

I ran to Macy’s hoping that the perfect dress would jump out at me, and thank goodness it DID!!!  Seriously, that never happens.   It was also on clearance.  Score!!   Better yet I knew it would be manfriend approved (not too quirky.)  I hit the formal dress trifecta!

Black lace top, ribbon bottom, floor length, but doesn’t feel too prom-y.  I also have the perfect necklace to make it a little more over the top.   Love.  This.  Dress.   Just need to get an inch chopped at the bottom but the tailor’s already working on it.

How long does it usually take you to find a dress?  I really can’t believe I lucked out, thank you Macy’s!!!!!!





  1. If I have an event to attend I’ll usually start looking a few weeks out, there’s a beautiful boutique here in Des Moines so that’s my little trick. Beautiful dress!

    I completely agree with you about shopping for dresses, it’s a chore. I always have luck at Macy’s or Nordstrom’s. I really wish they had them in Albany.
