The Hunt Begins

(Sorry for the SNAFU on this post last weekend. I accidentally published the Polyvore board to my site while I was editing and completely high on cold medicine. I am THAT person who should not operate any machinery while taking cold medicine that they talk about.)

While SO many men in my neck of the woods are hunting various woodland creatures, I’m hunting for something else entirely. The holiday party season is going to be approaching very, very soon and I’m going to need a dress. The Mister’s employer throws a massive, super fancy holiday party every year and it’s actually something that I look forward to going to. Why? Ummmm… Because I get to get all dressed up, and eat really good free food. Duh. I love fancy dresses and this is my one opportunity a year to sport something glitzy and glamorous.

I’ve worn black for the past two years and would like to branch out a bit. However, I can’t stop being drawn to more black dresses. It’s a sickness. There are some seriously gorgeous dresses out there, but I just can’t stomach spending a lot of money on an item that I’m only going to wear a few times. I’m too frugal. I’m am considering dress number 6 below, though. It’s striped, sparkly, has sleeves and is well under $200. That might be the one. I’ve thought about doing Rent the Runway, but I have such a problem with fit most of the time that it scares me, even with receiving two sizes.

Please be fully prepared for me to bombard you with additional dresses later. Stores are just now starting to get in their holiday party dresses. Consider yourself warned.

Do you have a big holiday party to go to this year? Have you already started looking for a dress? Where are you looking for dresses?
