I don't do as much clothes shopping in the winter, and don't enjoy it as much when I do, because naturally I gravitate towards the sexier, skimpier clothing that's more commonplace during the summer. But every so often the opportunity to try something on will present itself, even in the winter - and, if I had to be honest, though it's considerably more of a chore, the more layers I'm wearing, the more exciting it is having an excuse to strip them off in a semi-public context.
Well, I was browsing the racks today when I came across an attractive pink dress. While we're pretty far removed from both the Homecoming and prom seasons, it occurred to me that we're more or less smack dab in the middle of "winter formal" season! Regardless, there are usually a few prom-like dresses hanging around even out of season, and when I laid eyes on this one, I knew I had to try it on.
These boots give this dress a bit of attitude.
On the up side, it's one of those sexy, ruffled tube-type dresses, which means it doesn't have a non-elastic cinched waist, which is where I frequently find myself having trouble fitting into the dress. That wasn't a problem here. Unfortunately, on the other hand, I wasn't able to fit the arm straps around my wide shoulders, instead. There were only two of these dresses on the racks - one small and one medium; if there had been a large, I would have bought it up in an instant. Alas, my search for the perfect prom dress continues...
