One of J’s really good friend is getting married in March… Like in two months March, like on St. Patrick’s Day… March. And I have been searching and searching. And when I say searching I mean I have looked high and low for something to wear to this wedding. Under normal like prebaby weight I would have reached for one of my many LBDs and called it a day, but I can’t comfortably fit into any of those options, so I searched on.
I looked at Nordies (and if they didn’t have it where could it possibly be?), Asos, Bloomies, LOFT, Banana, White House Black Market, I mean everywhere I could think of… I looked at J. Crew a bunch of times, and then I found this dress, I am in love. It’s the nicest, easiest dress I could find. I can dress it up or down, and the best part: it was on sale with an additional 50% off the sale price, so I snagged it for under $40.00. I basically stole this dress, it retailed for $178, which is a respectable amount for a special occasion dress, I got the dress and the below items with shipping and tax for under $120.00. #jcrewftw.
I also picked up some items that are no longer available. I found a scarf cape thing in night watch tartan, something I have been looking for for a couple years now, since I saw the Alexander McQueen skull version. An oversize open grey cardi, perfect for layering at work, on super chilly days. And two pairs of opaque tights in black and navy. I have been looking for navy tights for a few years now, and sale on sale was the perfect opportunity.
I was getting really worried I wasn’t going to find anything to wear. All of the dresses were either too matronly, and I wasn’t going to be caught dead wearing them, or they were really cute but only available in plus sizes, this was something that I was happy to see, but sad that they didn’t offer the same dresses in my current size. Or the dresses were really suggestive and risque, which is not really appropriate because J is a groomsman. I’ll definitely share my ensembles from the wedding events when they come up! It’s pretty exciting! And on that note, it’s time to end!
All for now,
