Thanks for all your comments on my cry for fashion help last week! Y’all are braver souls than I when it comes to layering and mixing and matching. I ended up finding a beautifully perfect dress at the thrift store for only $4.00! It was the only remotely appropriate-for-the-occasion dress that I saw there, and it fit me like a glove.
I have some great black patent peep-toe shoes that I got for my rehearsal dinner, and I can throw on a black cardigan if it is chilly. I like that it is modest but not boring. I can’t wait to wear it to my work event, and then get A. to take me out somewhere nice so I have an excuse to wear it again! ;-)
