My frantic search for a dress to wear to tonight's awards...  
I HATE dressing up... Even worse is looking for a dress that will fit me and not drag on the floor (because I'm so short), not make me look like I have football player shoulders (which I do, but I try to hide it well...) ;), and will be something that I could actually afford. :P

Well, I came to LA with a dress I'd picked up back in Hawaii. It fit all three of these categories, but one thing was wrong with it... It was much too casual to wear to the Ovations. :( So this morning I rushed out to the Glendale Galleria and tried on every black dress I could find. They were all either too long, didn't fit right, or I could never afford... :( Then, at my last stop, I finally found something that seemed promising. It fit alright, wasn't too long, (still gave me football player shoulders, but ah! what can I do?) ;) But the main thing that surprised me was that it was finally a dress that I could afford! :)

So, I got it... Hopefully I'll have the courage to wear it tonight, because I can't return it. ;) For those interested in seeing what it looks like, I took a picture of it... The hanging nature of it really doesn't do it justice, it's really a nice dress. :)



I'm off to take a shower, relax, then squeeze into my dress for tonight. ;) Hope you all have a nice evening! :D

Just been looking at the piccies in your other post (which makes the whole thing sound fantastic). Such a shame you didn't really get photos to show off the dress - it looks great just on the hanger.

What a gorgeous dress :)

Thanks, Ashley! When I saw it I was hoping that I could at least afford it. Luckily it was in my price range! :D

You're going to look fab in it - it's a gorgeous dress!! Also remember - it's all in the attitude, as long as you act like the dress was meant for you, it'll look great.

Isn't that always the case, the last store is when you found the dress. I hope ya take a pic so we can see it on too!
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on November 15th, 2005 04:59 pm (UTC)
I was rushing around so much yesterday, I'm surprised I was able to find anything at all! :) There were a couple of pictures taken last night, but none where the dress could be seen at all... :(

Hey, that will be nice! If you are squeezing into that, I think your diet is doing JUST FINE, THANKS!
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on November 15th, 2005 05:02 pm (UTC)
Haha!! Thanks! I think my diet isn't going so well, though - I hope soon I won't have to add the "squeeze" part in my description of getting ready. ;)
