I leave Thursday for New York, Thursday! This is completely surreal my friends.
I have to say that the 20 Dresses post has received more comments than any other post on my Blog. Isn’t it great to be able to have some say on the matter? Aaron and I were reading htrough the comments. He is so funny. When he read the post and hit the part about nursing he said, “Ray I bet guys read this too!” I started laughing and I said, “Yeah and most of them know exactly what I am talking about.”
In addition to the comments, I received email messages from family and friends weighing in on their thoughts on the photos. So let me say I LOVED your feedback and some of you had me cracking up, “The blue one makes me think of my mother’s night gown in the 80’s” or “I love that you are shopping for Emmy gown inspiration at The Rack” or the suggestions with how to deal with only being 5′ 2″. And yes, I did actually look for an orange or copper dress, to no avail… so far. I appreciate you all and am so glad that I have a panel of people who care, that I can bounce this stuff off of.
I admit I am a coupon cutting, deal hunting mom. I subcribe to BabySteals.com and I don’t even have a baby. I shop the Sale section first of every on-line store and every brick and mortar store. I LOVE a good deal! Yes, I am one of those people who, when you say, “I love that dress!” answers, “I got it for $39 at TJMAXX!” (As if you asked!) Although Aaron LOVES that I love a good deal, he hates that I often announce it to the world. So I think he was a little annoyed by my last post over-all! HAHA.
I tend to think I am doing my part to help out other mom’s who may get invited to an award show. Maybe the original post should have been called, How To Dress For The Emmys and Spend Under $300!
Back to the dresses. I returned both of the white dresses. The bow has been removed from the gold dress. The Ebay dress came in the mail and is FABULOUS but is a good 6 inches too long. I am having it altered today, since I can’t return it anyway. Pictures to come! We are cutting this too close aren’t we?
