Dress Shopping on Tuesday, June 11, 2013
On Tuesday after my doctor's appointment, Michelle (my sister), Tommy, Carter (my two nephews), and I went dress shopping. Let me tell you, the boys were so EXCITED to go dress shopping with me. NOT!!! I do have to say that they were really good sports and waited quietly and patiently.
After consulting with everyone on Facebook, I decided that I should check out Fancy Fanny's in Red Bank. I didn't even realize it was out there but came highly recommended from several of my friends.
Fancy Fanny's did not disappoint!! There were dresses, dresses, and more dresses to choose from. I found a couple that I fell in love with but sadly they weren't my size. I have waited a bit too long to get a special order dress and I just don't see me losing 10 or 15 pounds before next month.
Michelle was such a sweetie as she helped me in and out of dress after dress. I was a little bothered by the size of the dresses I was having to try on. In my mind I am still that skinny girl I was back in high school but in the mirror there is a different girl looking back. Don't get me wrong, I am totally in love with the girl I am now just wish I could get some good exercise in to lose some weight. Michelle was able to say just the right thing to make me feel pretty.
I think I have found BOTH of the dresses I need. I only bought one, the cocktail dress for Friday night's platform speeches. But I put the other one (the evening gown) on hold. I just want to check a couple more places to be sure it's THE ONE.
Now it's time to look for shoes and jewelry. I can't wait!! If shopping is always a part of prepping for a pageant, count me in!!
Sorry, no sneak pictures. You will have to check back on July 19 and 20 for pictures.
