Most of my Wednesday was spent doing something I rarely do: trying on dresses in store after store. There's an upcoming event in our future, and it gave me, my grandson, and his mama an excuse to play dress-up for the day, and it was more fun than I had imagined it would be. Typically, shopping is not really my thing---unless it's for books. But this day was different.
We tried on gowns. And I got tips on how to take selfies in front of 3-way mirrors, which was a new skill learned that I will likely never use again.
I was afraid this one made me look too grandmotherly.
I mean, I love being a grandma...as long as I don't look like one. This little guy was so patient as we tried on clothes. In between trips to the dressing rooms, I stole smiles and coos as much as possible.
And his mama looked like this in one of the gowns. Wow. I know. When we parted in the afternoon, she still hadn't made up her mind, but this red number was my personal favorite.
I also tried on some shorter dresses. This one ended up coming home with me, but I decided it wasn't formal enough, so I'll save it for something else.
I think I decided that I like this one the best, but I'm still not positive. The tags are still on it if I change my mind.
My children think the sleeves make me look like Batman, but they were one of the selling points for me because of their uniqueness.
After six stores and a surprise visit to see Hubby at work, we finally sat down for some lunch at a favorite Mexican restaurant so the baby could get changed and fed too. Then we hit Macy's (where I found the above dress) before I had to pick up kiddos from school. I'm eager to see which gown my shopping partner picked.
And I'm really thinking of returning tomorrow and buying the long purple gown too---even if it does make me look like a grandmother. The sales were great today, and I'd love to have options in my wardrobe as we head into the holidays.
I hope your Hump Day was an enjoyable one too!
