Dress Hunt? Mission Accomplished!
The dress hunt is complete! It took us four hours and my feet are killing me, but it was a successful trip. We went to a discount store called Ross and tried on about 18 dresses. My daughter is not tiny, so it took a bit of work to find a dress that fit her without showing too much cleavage or making her look like the mother of the bride. There was a beautiful black sleeveless dress with a bronze midsection and black lace overlay that I wanted M to get, but ABM said it was too grown-up. We finally settled on a two-piece black outfit with beading around the neckline and the handkerchief hem. Luck was with us when we went shoe shopping, too, because we found a fierce pair of heels for $7! Pictures will be forthcoming.
