A couple of weeks ago we attended the Volunteers in Medicine Ball..we attend a lot of Balls...I'm not complainin here, and yes I said balls... after a while, you run out of fancy dresses, and well, it gets a bit boring...so in one of our thrifting ventures I found this dress...I remember jumping up and down with excitement. "Do you see these shoulders?" I exclaimed to P.E. She was just excited and I let it sit in my closet until such an occasion.

When I walked downstairs I got the look. YOU know what look I am talkin about...THE LOOK....like "Hey Dynasty" hubby mumbled...
"ok..ok..leave me alone..I love this dress" I quickly rebutted and left for the ball"

Half way through the ball dessert was being served and the hubby was complaining of being full, so he turned to me and asked..
"Hey I'm too full to eat this...do you mind if I take my dessert and store it in your shoulders? No one will see?
HA HA HA HA..SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO funny...my large sleeves...
Whatever....NO ONE else had my dress...and I was told I was reminiscent of breakfast at Tiffany's one of the auction items..so THERE..

Confidence is what got me through this night... and all those foolios that bought their dresses at Barneys...yeah...mine was from SAVERS...and it was $4.99 BAM
