Why do women put so much thought and effort into finding the perfect dress for an event? Well, my frenzy of finding the perfect engagement dress for our last weekend’s engagement party turned out to be a great story. I was still in the store when I said, "I have to post about this."
Thanksgiving drive down: For months I was looking forward to the drive with my Honey from San Francisco to Los Angeles. No matter how much you love spending time with someone, a road trip always tests your patience. On the drive, we drank our coffees, munched on chips, sang some songs and 450 miles later we finally got close to my families home. And then it happened, Honey suggested that we go to the outlet mall before we get there. Sorry Dad, we were so close…
I loved the idea, but I also felt guilt trickle down my spine.
With less than an hour before the stores closed for the holidays, we made it to the outlets. I felt a shopping 'sense of calm' come over me. My good side told me to find some perfume and my bad side told me to find the perfect dress. We ran into a discount perfume store and found holiday sales without the crowds and bought two perfumes for the price of one.
Boom done. Then came the hunt for THE dress.
Next, we ran into the White House/Black Market and Honey grabbed a dress off the rack that he liked. I put it on in the change room and loved it. I even had enough time to try on some pants. I met Honey at the register to pay. I was shocked to see my dress was rung up for only $20 (see dress below).
I looked at my watch and we had enough time for shoes….
I drove the back roads to my family’s home, just in time to wear my $20 dress to the party. And Honey was sworn to secrecy not to tell anyone. He did tell my best friend. Plus I felt pretty, oh so pretty.
It was the best $20 I’ve ever spent!
