lol You ladies rock. I can so see myself doing the "Stepford wife" shopping cart pushing with a dress like that on, right through the crowd of white trash people in their curlers, dirty smelly nascar tank tops, and barefoot.
Don't think "freaking out the people at Piggly Wiggly" (yes, that's really the name of our grocery store) would work as an excuse for the hubster though
Dollbecky, I think I'm gonna pull that one out next time I get caught with a big mess on the floor and my sewing stuff all over the table lol. "But I just want to look nice for you!" His favorite color on me is white. Which knowing my clumsy habits is just asking for trouble. Plus I feel like I look like a wanna-be bride in all white lulz.
Aislynn, I go to those types of cultural events, too! They're tons of fun. Sadly, I work most evenings as a ghost tour guide, so I don't get to go to many at all. Plus, even in "Old South" Charleston, people just don't dress up for ANYTHING anymore. It's sad, really. And I have to tell myself DUH! My husband and I are artists, and we very occasionally even get to attend our own art openings! Why not make a dress for the next one?! lol "But dear, I want everyone to know you have a creative and beautiful wife for your opening! I have to look nice for you!"
I should do the picnic in the park thing.
Bring my retro "china" and my cheap silverplate candleabras hahahaha.
It's sad that society seems to try to keep us from dressing up any day besides prom and our wedding, with a possible mother of the bride role years later. LOL
