Shopping extravaganza!

Well, it's been 6 years since I bought a new dress.  So after we got our tax refund the philosopher talked me into going shopping.  (And those of you who know me well understand what a challenge that was... generally I loathe shopping!)

So we went to the usual suspects: Kohls, Penneys, Belk.  Nothing.  Then we hit The Avenue, which is an outdoor mall with small shops like Coldwater Creek, Talbots, Ann Taylor Loft and my favorite, White House Black Market.  I told the philosopher that I refused to spend big bucks for a dress, and he made me *promise* to try on anything I liked, regardless of price.  (Of course I was thinking to myself, "Sure.  I'll try it on.  That doesn't mean I'll BUY it!")

So after some "meh" attempts, we ended up at the aforementioned WHBM.  I tried several dresses on, and absolutely fell in love with one.  THIS one, to be precise.  And with a cute little white shrug, it will be perfect for Sunday!

Then we drove up to Kennesaw to another fun store.  And guess what I found there?  SHOES!!!  But the philosopher absolutely won't let me wear them with my new dress, and for the life of me I can't understand why.   

And that is the tale of my shopping extravaganza.

Change the laces out with some hot pink ones. Then you'll be set!
