Outfit Details: Dress- Modcloth; Cardigan- Target; Tights, Shoes- Sears
This was my “What I want to wear on NYE” outfit. That means that, no, I did not wear this. For a multitude of reasons. The main being, that I didn’t think to use my brain and put on a cardigan yesterday when I was getting dressed to go out.
A small history: When I got this dress on sale at Modcloth, it was way too small. I couldn’t return it, and tried half-heartedly to sell it. I have been looking for a gold dress for ages, and love this one. I finally got around to altering it yesterday morning. Just to find out that it is still about an inch too small (the back pulls oddly). I went with another dress for this particular reason, only to be changed to another dress for another reason. When I got my thinking powers back this morning, I went ahead and wore the dress, with a cardigan like I should have all along.
The other reason for a dress change was the fact that our plans for the night entailed fireworks. I ended up in my go-to black dress that is not really poofy and therefore more fire safe. I did, to much my horror, singe a pair of my new We Love Colors tights. I sucked it up and didn’t cry. But I wanted to. The fireworks, I will say, were pretty much worth it though. They were like Disneyland quality! No joke! Tennessee holds nothing back when it comes to fire.
Welcome 2011! I hope this goes as well as 2010. Maybe a little better even.
