I'll start by saying "I love my Husband", but men don't get it when it comes to dressing! Over a month ago, he came home and told me that we had a black tie party to go to on June 6. OK, no problem. I have a sweet little Nicole Miller dress that has only been worn once hanging in the closet...can do.
Fast forward to Friday evening (June 6). We were supposed to be at the party at 6:00, of course, it was 6:30 and Husband wasn't even home yet:o No problem, I was dressed and ready to go shortly after, he made it home. What does he put on for this "black tie" party? He goes for the khaki pants and a navy blazer?!? I say "whoa there pally pal, I thought this was black tie?". He says "oh sweetie, you should know better than to listen to me!". Well, I certainly can't go to the party dressed to the nines, while Husband is sporting business casual. Now, we are running about an hour late, and I am back to the drawing board as far as what to wear...gah!
I pulled this one out of the fire by just going with some bangin' heals, a basic black pencil skirt, and a black shiny top. Still looked fierce, but more casual....Whew, dodged an embarrassment bullet on that one.
Which leads me to my next observation. I haven't been out much in the last couple years. I have had my head down, buried in Mommydom. When did ultra short dresses come back? I'm talking shorter than Allie Mcbeal stuff. I kid you not, I could actually see some of the women's undergarments! It seems to me, that if I can see your Spanx, your dress is too short! That's not attractive, I don't think you want to be flashing your body shapers, it's not like they're sexy? I was just floored by this! I don't know, maybe I'm just being a prude...Lil' help here, there is such a thing as too short, isn't there?
