File Under, "What Was I Thinking?"
A white, knit, sheath dress. Mr. ETB blurted out, "Are you going to wear it without underwear, like everyone wore that sort of thing in the 70's?" I suppose it is a bit vintage looking. I will indeed be wearing undergarments, and am presently looking for a full-slip in the correct length. I do not, however have a clue what sort of shoes/boots one is supposed to wear with this sort of dress. This is likely why I've never gone for winter white. That, and I live on a farm. I wonder how long the dress will last before it gets splashed with mud getting in or out of the car? I paid $4.00 for it (new! How fantastic is that?) so I suppose it wouldn't be a terrible loss.
My fashion sense still firmly rooted in 1972, I bought this dress. I need a large, straw bag with flowers on it. Maybe a floppy hat. This dress set me back $7.00.
I hadn't really invested in clothing since Danny was born, as we had so many other expenses, and who needs nice frocks to have a child spit up all over them? He spit up an awful lot. Really, and awful lot. Still, I was starting to look a bit shabby, so I've slowly been replacing the shirts with frayed collars, worn shoes, and moth-eaten sweaters. I think my $11.00 was well spent, but if he spits up on any of them, I'm going to be annoyed.
