Got the Dress!

September 5th, 2010 at 09:40 am

Here is a link to paste in for a picture:


(I will not wear the belt.)

Also got a short, chocolate brown jacket with a bit of a sheen and a pair of gold Anne Klein pumps with kitten heels.

You can't tell from the picture, but the dress is very silky in texture, very drapy and flowing.

It is not a traditional MOG dress, but the wedding is not formal -- for instance, my son will wear a suit, not a tux -- so I think it is dressy enough for the occasion. Anyway, I feel good in it, and I will be able to wear it again.

I thoroughly looked at all the "finer" dresses and could not find ANYTHING I liked. I will try to dress it up a bit with jewelry.

The dress was $86, the jacket $120 and the shoes $64. All that combined is less than I paid for my other MOG dress which has only had one wearing. (And it had to be altered, as well).

I found it at Carson Pirie Scott. Because of my purchases, I got two $10 gifts cards to use on a $25 purchase (each) -- so I will try to think of something I can use those for. Gifts, maybe. I have two grandson birthdays coming up.

On the same day, I bought a short lightweight coat (Eddie Bauer) at Goodwill for $7. Now, that's more like what I'm used to paying! But, it's because I get most of my clothes at that price that I can splurge sometimes without feeling bad.

After all that heavy shopping, I couldn't resist driving through Potillo's for lunch. ($9)

I also got my oil changed ($24) -- so what a productive day, huh?

    Yay! I love the dress. I bet that you will get many compliments, AND be able to wear it to other functions. Were you at Yorktown yesterday? I walked thru Carsons jewelry section at about 10:45 (had to get a b-day gift at Von Maur - nothing beats their free wrapping!)

    Very productive day, I say!

    I'm telling you that's what happens to me... I go shopping and I spend!!

    I really like the dress, what does the jacket look like?

    I can't find a picture of the jacket, but it is a classic one-button blazer, short, dark brown and has a luster kind of like taffeta does.

    Yes, momcents, I was at Yorktown, and at the same time -- but not at the jewelry counter!
