So after weeks of searching for something new to wear, and a promise to myself that I would not buy ONE MORE LITTLE BLACK DRESS, I have found my outfit. So I will be all dressed up, with somewhere to go on Saturday night. In black.
Well, at least it’s not a dress this time! It is, in fact, a “playsuit” says French Connection – one of my oldest and dearest friends. A sequined playsuit, more to the point. And I am not a head-to-toe sequins (ok, thigh) kind of girl, but I thought I’d take a chance this time.
I paid a small fortune to have Frenchconnection.com overnight this adorable outfit to me by 10:30a.m. this morning – I guess it’s payback for all the times I’ve “cheaped out” and waited to order until shipping was free. And even before 10a.m., it was here!
I also found the formerly $120 black suede B. Makowsky’s on sale at Von Maur for $32. (I thought I was buying them for $86, so that was a huge surprise!) And I already own bezel-set earrings, black opague tights, sparkly bracelets and a red clutch.
Oh yeah, I also own the black tuxedo topper I have planned to wear over it, for a not-so-frigid January night.
Mission accomplished. And with 48 hours to spare!
