Sus, did you attend a wedding this weekend?
Yes, Dear Reader, I surely did. It had been awhile since I had been to one, so naturally I took the opportunity to go shopping for some new threads. And by new threads I mean clothing that wasn’t imprinted with a corporate logo that I picked up at a giveaway booth at a street festival.
What did you wear?
I wore the only thing that fit.. After trying on approximately 2874878786824 dresses, I found a lovely little sheath dress at Macy’s. And by lovely I mean that it didn’t cling to all the wrong parts.
Did you already have the accessories to go with the dress?
Silly reader, one knows that one NEVER has EXACTLY the right accessories to wear with something new. At least that’s what one tells the husband. I did buy the necklace and earrings, but I had the shoes, a killer pair of Stuart Weitzman’s which I purchased a year ago in Chicago that were just looking for the right occasion to wear (although Mr. CPQ said that I could wear them every day if I wanted to and preferably with ..oh, I can’t go there…this is a family blog.)
So, killer shoes, huh?
Yeah, by the time I got to the church I was ready to DIE because they weren’t really broken in yet, plus I had a momentary brain lapse and didn’t think “spike heels + walk in the grass garden wedding = broken neck. But I took one for the home team as did my other friends who had the same problem I did could commiserate.
I heard it was an outdoor wedding. Isn’t it hot in North Carolina in August?
Why yes, yes it is.
Did you see a fashion violations while you were there?
You mean other than foundational garments gone awry combined with the inappropriate wearing of extensions after the age of 50?
I just couldn’t resist….
Have a nice day.
