Dress shopping

Friday, July 05, 2013

I have almost exclusively athletic-type dresses (the kind Title Nine and Athleta carry) because I think regular pretty things look majorly mis-matched with my body. But I need something genuinely nice to wear to dinner on the cruise, so I left my self-judgment and ego at home and went to Marshalls.

It was actually not horrible. I came home with two green and two black dresses. This wasn't intentional, and I did try some in other colors. There was one coral Cynthia Rowley dress, in particular, that I loved, but they only had it in a 6.

Which was too big.

I gotta say, it's not a horrible problem to have (though I am thinking of checking at another Marshalls or TJMaxx to see if they have more!)

As for the "wins," they don't make me look like a drag queen, and that's pretty much what I was going for. Success!
