New gray dress

What I Wore To Work Today: Tuesday, May 24, 2011
Dress: Ross
Shoes: Target
Necklace: Claire’s
Cardigan: Target

My shopping trip to Ross last weekend yielded the objectives of a swimsuit coverup and a cocktail dress for a wedding, plus I walked away with this gray dress, two casual cotton summer shifts, and a pair of sunglasses.  My most successful non-Goodwill shopping venture in awhile, all for an hour and less than 55 bucks.  Uh, thanks, low-paid textile workers in Guatemala?

I’m wearing this dress to a two o’clock church wedding on Saturday afternoon, and a different new one to the 6 o’clock reception with dinner and dancing.  The evening cocktail dress is another forgotten-and-refound-in-my-own-closet $1 purchase from Goodwill that needs to be tailored tonight.  (I’m typing this on Friday afternoon.)  I’ll work on a few sewing projects while watching season 5 “Grey’s Anatomy” episodes 13-15.  I’m getting closer to the end, I can feel it, only another month living under the tyranny of “Grey’s Anatomy” and I can start a new series…
