Little Black Dress

I've been too excited to concentrate on anything.  I can't believe I'm finally going to Hawaii in the morning.  Woo hoo!

I spent all day shopping today.  I was only going to pick up a few things but I saw a dress that I couldn't resist.  It's a black halter dress with a collar that looks like a gold choke necklace and a keyhole cutout that provides just a tiny peek of cleavage.  It's been over a year since I bought a new dress and this one actually fit off the rack.  A size 4!  I was looking for a 6 and was annoyed that all they had was the 4 and an 8.  I was shocked.       

Then I had to head to Victoria's Secret to get a strapless bra to wear under it.  They had a sale on pretties so, of course, I had to get some of them.  They were 7 for $25.  I couldn't pass that up.  Oh, and we can't wear a nice dress without the right accessories.  I hunted until I found just the right earrings, bracelet, shoes, and handbag.   

Now I just got off the phone with Wyoming who told me not to even bother bringing any pants, just shorts.  Hawaii is a very laid-back, casual place.  "Don't even bring socks", he said.  "Flip flops is what you'll be wearing."  He laughed at me for shopping before I got to one of the best places on earth to shop.  I guess he's never been to The Galleria in Houston and so he doesn't realize I don't need to go all the way to Hawaii for that.  In fact, other than souvenirs, shopping is the last thing I want to do when I get there.  

He doesn't know it yet, but he's going to help me find a place to wear that dress, dammit.  It's been a long time since I got all gussied up.

Have fun in Hawaii!!! Wyoming is correct...Hawaii is very laid back! You can wear mismatched clothes and nobody would look at you crazy..lol!!

Beautiful dress, and I know you will find somewhere special to wear it! There are so many fabulous restaurants you can wear that too!

Titty tube and shorts, my aunt fanny. Yeah if you're 17. Otherwise it's so much mutton dressed as lamb. And I'm certain that you're not so stupid that you don't see what's best on your own back.
And go with Magnum PI when in doubt. There they always had the utility stuff for the beach and veranda, the suit with a sarong. But then there's nothing like contrast.
And with men, we have something odd in our make up. We could be viewing a woman dressed in nothing all day long and much like a plate with an apple in the mouth we're aware, but meauuhhh.
Then in the evening, she puts on a dress that hides all that was on display not ten minutes before and he cannot wait to get the thing off her and show her the four corners of the bedroom from all angles.

aw, that is so cute, I really like this post. The dress is really pretty and I love hearing about your excitement to get ready, I think it's one of the many joys of being a girl! I can't wait to see where you find a way to wear it! I was petsitting at my Dad's last week because he and my stepmom were in hawaii.. they just came back all tan and annoyed to be home, so I hope you had just as much fun as they did.
