Dress Shopping

Shopping for evening gowns is one of my favorite things to do of all time. Today I was invited to a charity ball. This means that I get to go dress shopping. I usually like to go window shopping online before I head out to the stores so I can get an idea of what is available and where. Tonight I hopped online and within minutes of searching I found some gorgeous Alex evening separates.

I usually go with a sleeveless gown, and in case I get cold I bring a coordinating shawl. Well, I don’t think I have to do that with the look I’m picking out this time. It’s an Alex evenings bolero jacket dress, and it’s absolutely spectacular. I love how the dress is fitted at the top and flows away from the body below that. It isn’t a huge puffy dress either which is a big plus. The sparkle on top is just enough. I’m not really a big fan of entire dresses that are sparkle from head to toe; I think they are a bit much.

I just need to find the perfect shoes to go with the dress and I’ll be set. My closet probably has something that would work, but a girl can never have too many shoes. I especially can’t turn down the chance to use my Alden shoes discount to get myself a new pair of heels.

Lots of Easter Events and Preparations

It’s only two short weeks until Easter is here. I really haven’t done anything to prepare for it. I’m not sure if we are going to go to my family’s home or stay here.  I know there are a few things we can do here in our own community if we want to.  I even saw a community Easter Egg Hunt advertised at the church down the street for this coming weekend.  I think it would be fun to take Lady Bug out and have her hunt eggs with other little girls and boys. I’m sure she would love running up and down the field with all of the other kids her age.

I also saw that our mall is having the Easter Bunny come visit for pictures.  I’m not really sure how Lady Bug will react to a big guy in a bunny costume.  There is only one way to find out.  I’ll have to get her a really pretty dress to wear.  Maybe I’ll even make her a cute hair bow.
