Nothing to Wear

It's Homecoming weekend at our alma mater this weekend, and while it's neither my nor SwingDaddy's reunion year, the dance troupe in which we met is having a get-together. So of course, the big question is:

What do I wear?

SwingDaddy says that it's pretty ludicrous for a woman with twelve feet of hanging closet space filled with costumes to say she has nothing to wear, but really. It's not like I can show up dressed in an orange-gold Harvest Queen gown with a 37-foot fluid hemline (yes, you may borrow it if you have an occasion where it would be suitable).

I need a fairly simple frock that's attractive and still fits. The fit part shouldn't be terrible, since the morning sickness hasn't allowed me to gain weight yet, but for comfort's sake, I'm not looking for anything too snug.

While browsing photos yesterday, I came across a picture from a party last November where I'm wearing an awesome dress my mom found for me. It's perfect, and I only wore it that one time. However, for some people, that party will have been the last time they've seen me. Does it matter? Should I wear it anyway?

Assuming Swimmy and I both fit inside, of course.

Wear the dress. Change the accessories.

If it's been that long since they've seen you, chances are they aren't going to remember what you were wearing no matter how fabulous it was. Unless it's the Harvest Queen dress. I'm pretty sure they'd remember that.

Well, it it was me, I'd wear it anyway. Most people won't even notice.

I'm with kimberly and ewe. Wear the dress. Kimberly has a great idea of updating the accessories. And SHOES! Yay for shoes! You might accidentally have to buy some new ones. For Swimmy's sake, of course.

I say wear the dress. Anybody who remembers you in it has too much time on their hands.

oh yeah, wear the dress - totally. i think if you do different hair and accessories you can totally pull it off. plus, i always feel good when i can get into something that i wore previously.... rare for me but still.
