Since I didn’t go shopping yesterday on Black Friday (I’ll post about what I did do tomorrow when all is said and done), I figured I’d write about shopping instead.
Or more specifically, my party dress addiction.
My reasoning for such is twofold:
1) Party dresses are adorable and fabulous.
2) When it comes to styling myself, I am really, really lazy. A great outfit that consists of exactly one item? SOLD.
I usually try to avoid even trying on such things to prevent myself from spending money on something I’ll wear once to a wedding, and secretly wish I had some kind of job (seat filler? hostessing at a schmancy restaurant? escort?) that I could wear it to all the time.
So this time when I wandered into H&M and wanted to buy every $50 party dress in the place, I decided to try a new approach.
Only photos were taken home with me. 😉
I swear it didn’t make my torso look that freakishly short (although it is)…
(Sorry, I haven’t mastered self-portraiture yet)
I don’t love this dress.
I don’t think I can pull off maxi dresses…
(Anyone notice how totally Blossom the dress/boots look is?!)
I thought for sure this one was going to be the one that was hard to let go.
But WOW, where’d my boobs go? I promise they were there before and after wearing this dress. Not huge, mind you, but there.
And I do not usually go for the shoulder thing.
But it really does balance out the top and bottom.
That Adrian was on to something.
