In Search of a Grown-Up Dress

We have a couple of weddings coming up, and my usual going-out-dancing dresses and frocks that I've worn to dance friends' weddings were clearly not going to cut it. I put my latest favorite, a little black tiered number from the teen department and determined it was too sl*tty to wear to an event where colleagues and/or family members would be present. Time to go shopping!

I went to the grown-up department at Nordstrom's and believe it or not, found something appropriate and still kind of fun. And red!

The online site didn't have a photo, but this one is pretty close - imagine it sleeveless and red.

Good thing you posted a photo. I'm going shopping this weekend for the same thing.

Nice! I'm going to a German-themed benefit next week and am fresh out of dirndls. What to wear?!

You can't beat a nice red dress, I think. Colour is my friend.

I love a new dress. I popped into a store today, telling myself "no black, no black, no black" but ended up walking out with a black dress. Oh well. Congrats on getting red!
