You Wear It Well

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?

    You look beautiful, and I'm certain your family was very proud!
