It’s gray and drizzly today and generally very blah, which is kind of how this week has been. I got our taxes done and filed, which always takes longer than I expect. But it’s done, so yay for being responsible.
We have a formal dinner with a friend coming up next month, and Mr. M needed a new suit, so we decided to try our luck at Goodwill last night. Friends, he got a suit that looks tailored to him, plus a brand-new suit jacket that matches some pants he already had, a waistcoat, and a pair of dress shoes for less than $50.
I’m so jealous. The women’s section was, let’s say, less good.
Luckily, I have a clearance dress arriving today, which will either look ’20s glam or like a shiny bathrobe, and only time will tell. 😂 I did also order a safer backup dress, so if it’s shiny bathrobe, at least I’ll have options.
We rarely dress up, so it’s a fun excuse to look fancy, and the dress code said to err on the side of too much rather than not enough. I’m thinking about buying a fascinator, like I’m a duchess or some such nonsense. Ooh, and one of those long cigarette holder thingies, never mind that I don’t smoke and never have. I can just wave it around while I bemoan the peasantry.
I love it when a plan comes together. 😂
Do you dress up on the regular, or is it a rare event? Also, do you own a fascinator, and if so, is it awesome?
