And Finally

As promised I am finally getting to writing about THE dress.

Way Cooler's function went quite well. I got through the evening with absolutely no social blunders on my part. Apparently Halloween is also the evening of miracles.

The Shoes.

Notice the heel. And now I am going to go all "What Not to Wear" and proclaim that they were actually comfortable. Mind you, the only time I walked was to go to the bathroom yet again for another glance at myself looking put together. When you are in the midst of a miracle you have to keep beholding it.

The Clutch


It is quite sad how happy that dumb purse made me. I must confess, I actually felt like a grown-up, something a 12 year old marriage, mortgage and mini-van have not been able to accomplish.

The Shawl

(The shawl refused to download it's picture. So let me describe it to you. It's a cream Pashmina. So totally pretty.)
My S-I-L brought this back from a trip to China three years ago and I am finally getting around to wearing it. There was a little voice inside my head that kept telling me it probably didn't go with the Mickey Mouse hoodie I wear on a daily basis. So, it has languished in my closet till now.

What?

You didn't come to see accessories? If you wanted that you'd go to Payless? Alrighty then.

The Pic of me is now history.
For the record I am 5'10"
 D cup
And have long flowing blond hair.
What?  You doubt it?  Well, now you will never know.

Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you, I am posting a picture of myself on the internet. Don't panic all my paranoid concerned family members, I am pulling it down in 48 hours. Plus, the internet crazies could study that picture intently for hours and then pass me on the street tomorrow and not have a hope of recognizing me. I look this good about once every 10 years or so.

This Halloween I may not have worn a costume but I felt like a princess none-the-less. And that is a very good thing. Even if it only occurs every decade or so.

You looks mah-velous, daling. And I so could not walk in those shoes.

Dawn and Dale said...

I can't believe CRAZY camera lady Char hasn't shown me a picture of you before!! It's so funny how you completely come up with a different look for someone in your mind that you haven't seen before! I pictured you really blonde with long hair!!

LOVE the dress on you though!! You have an amazing body for a dress!! It could totally be a norm for you!! :)

Pretty, pretty.

Did you dance in that dress? It looks like it's meant for dancing, cutie-patootie!

Oh, my Sister-in-law was right, you do look gorgeous! I LOVE LOVE LOVE your hair! Now, if we could just get said S-I-L to wear a dress...
It is good for us all to feel like a Princess sometimes, hopefully you don't have to wait another 12 years!

Happygeek! I agree with momofthecrazies... you must now change your name to Princess Geek!

You look fabulous, just FABULOUS!! Love, love, love the shawl. And, the shoes. And, the hair! And, the little black number!!

Wolf call**

Wow!! You are hot!! Lol!!

Dawn thought you were 'blonde'. Hmmmm, what exactly do you think she was saying there? ;)

And We really do need to make CR put on a dress sometime too. She's another hottie, who just hasn't discovered it yet!!

P.S. WHAT did you fuzz out in the background, on the mantle, or do my eyes decieve??

Bargainista said...

You look very pretty, and I'm glad the social function went well. :)

I wanted to drop by and say 'thanks'! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment on Antique Mommy's blog last week that was about advice for new moms. I've printed out all of the comments and am saving them to read over and over again! :) I was greatly encouraged by that post. Your practical advice was wonderful, and I needed to read about letting it be ok that my hubby will do things differently...he will be such a good daddy! Thanks again!

The background that was fuzzed out is my last name.
We have these funky letters that spell out our last name up on the mantle.
Dawn, the whole blonde thing, what ARE you saying?
Dance. Mwhahahahaha.
Mmmhmmm.
I offered CR a dress. She graciously declined. I will keep trying!

Like Dawn and Dale I had you pictured as a blonde - I have no idea why!

You look just gorgeous - so glad "the function" went well! I love the entire ensemble.

Melissa said...

1. You look gorgeous.
2. I kind of hate you because your hair is so shiny and beautiful and you're gorgeous.

I knew you'd be a dark haired beauty in 'the dress'. The picture proves that. Hope the celebration was fantastic.
