What I Wore
To my son's high school graduation
Dress - R&M Richards (bought at Elder-Beerman but cannot find it on their website!)
Shoes - Nine West/Wristlet - Nine West/Bracelet - (Thrifted)
As you may know, I don't wear dresses a lot (I haven't even followed through on my "I'll wear a dress at least one time every month." resolution). However, I had a reason to wear one recently - my son's high school graduation! So, of course, I needed to find the perfect dress for this exciting occasion. I spent one lunch hour at the mall, walking in and out of every store that had dresses (except the larger department stores that I knew I'd need more time in). I took phone camera photos of anything that struck me and moved on to the next store. Still not convinced that I had found "the" dress, I went back to the mall the next day heading to the first of the stores I hadn't visited the day before. Well, that ended up being the last store I went into. I saw this dress and felt it was possible that my search was over. Have you ever gone into a dressing room, put on an item, stood there looking at yourself in the mirror and wanting to give someone a high five? That happened when I looked at myself in the mirror with this dress on. I just felt like the dress had been made for me to find. Oh, and those shoes and that wristlet? I knew that I wanted hot pink accessories, and when I walked into Nine West, there they were - just waiting for me! What was the last thing that you just knew was waiting at the store for you to find?
