All righty then, the wedding is over and now it is time to get back on track!
First, thank you, I had so many kind comments on the dress I wore for the wedding. No secrets at "The Polka Dot Closet"...I had to share with you the "Thrifty mother of the groom"
I don't like clothes shopping at all...So I only went to a couple stores and bingo I found the dress for the wedding. I knew it wouldn't come cheap but, I was thrilled to find THE dress for $219 but OH LOOK $79.99 for an Oleg Cassini!
It was a long dress so I did pay $60 to have it hemmed and the shrug made from the left over material ...But it was still a deal!
Next up shoes, oh it is so hard to find a comfortable dressy pair of shoes and you know you won't get much wear out of them
Yes folks I'm almost embarrassed to tell you I found these at the thrift store for...$5.00 and I borrowed the purse from my Mom
OK, now we have to talk about the elephant in the room.... Well the two elephants.....Yes, I'm going to go there!
I was MORTIFIED when I saw the pictures. I tried the dress on at the store and at the seamstress, but I didn't move around...It seems the more I moved around I eventually had a herd of elephants!
I'm a conservative dresser and had I known I would have had the seamstress make a ruffle or something to disguise the herd! Well, not much I can do about it now.
So my tip for the day, if you have a dress for a really special occasion...Give it a test drive!
So glad I got that off my chest!
Listen, I've got to run, my antiques booth is pretty sparse, so I have furniture to refinish and oh, Christmas...Maybe I should shop, put up the tree, bake (Who am I kidding, I don't bake), send out cards.......Yep, time to get back on track!
