As I mentioned here, the dress I wanted to wear to last weekend’s wedding didn’t allow the luxury of breathing room. Upon this discovery, I may have flung myself on the bed in a fit of dramatized despair before I took it to the Internet and weighed my options: a girdle or a new dress.
A new dress.
I looked at hundreds of dresses and each time the selection left me underwhelmed, I increased my budget and began again. (At one point, I decided $500 would be absolutely reasonable to spend on a panic purchase.) Obviously it was a long night, but I finally found this Erin Fetherston dress on Amazon. It’s everything a cocktail dress should be: feminine, whimsical and irresistibly sweet.
Lemons into lemonade.
