"Makes Me Smile" Monday

I've been shopping recently for a cocktail dress for an upcoming event in September (more on that later !), and struck gold yesterday . . . a great little black dress, for a great price !!

It was so much fun trying on "fancy" dresses ! I can't recall the last time I went shopping for a more formal dress . . . prom ? the Crimson Ball during college ? You know you're getting older when . . . . !?!?!?!!!! I'm so used to business/professional attire . . . it was refreshing to look girly and feminine for a change . . . sometimes you forget you can actually still look that way ! It was a let-down to put my tank top and capris back on . . . I do believe I could happily wear dresses just about every day !! God knows they hide all the flaws from the waist down . . . that alone is worth a huge smile !!!
I wish my pictures had turned out better . . . doesn't do the dress justice. Hopefully it'll look much better on me . . . !!! Cheers for the LBD !!!

P.S. In previewing this post, I realize that the pictures make it look a bit lingerie-ish . . . it is classy, I swear, and it comes to the knee !!! Better pictures to come !!!
