little black dress
I am a jean a sweater kind of gal. Can't remember the last dress I wore. Usually wear flip flops so no need to own those prefect high heel shoes. But Ben is a business man. He needs to be involved in the community and that leads to parties and mingling. On Feb 4 I get to go to a Habitat For Humanity Fundraiser Auction. I love auctions but this is also a cocktail dress auction. So I bought a little black dress. Well, honestly I ordered 3 online and they came today. I figured there is a lot more selection online and I can take what I don't wear back. Thankfully ordering a dress online is not like ordering pants. I know my dress size. And thankfully I think at least one of the dresses will work. Alicia likes 2 of them, Ethan doesn't really care and Ben hasn't seen them yet. Alicia wishes I could return black for a red dress. But it's much harder to find a red dress in my style then a black one. Now I am starting to freak out about what shoes to wear, what jewelery, do I wear stockings or go bare legged. I think I need help. Any of you have the perfect heels I should get for this black dress? Know what kind of jewelery I should wear? This is most likely the dress I will choose. It at least gives me the feel of sleeves to hide behind. It won't be the fanciest dress there but it is one of the more fancier dresses I have ever worn.
