One of my “fashion rules” is to be prepared to go somewhere without having to go shopping for an outfit at the last minute. In the past, I would panic when we got an invitation to an event that I did not have the proper clothing for. Especially when the children were small, it was very difficult to find time (or money) to shop, and as the day of the event grew closer, I would feel more and more stressed, and usually ended up buying something that I didn’t necessarily like,that cost more than I wanted to pay, just because I had to have something to wear.
Almost everyone will at some point will need to attend a wedding or a funeral. And there are other occasions that require something other than normal everyday clothing, such as a cocktail party, a charity event, garden party, or some other special occasion.
We don’t attend a lot of dressy events, but I do like to know that if something does come up, I can just be excited about attending, and not have to stress out over what to wear.
Both of these outfits were very inexpensive…the dress was $16.00, the pants were $8.00, and the lace top was $14.00. The shoes were also less than $20, AND they are comfortable!
So, I have at least a couple of outfits already put together that are dressier than what I usually wear. Now all I need is an invitation! By the way, we are free this weekend. 😉
