The Search Continues

After failed attempt after failed attempt to find a dress for this Friday's CC Ball on-line and at the mall, I decided to look at the outlets. The outlets closest to our home tends to have a ton of full length gowns and there are lots of great deals to be found. This should make it a win-win except for the fact that most gowns are "final sale" only.  So I did what any woman would do, I forced Hubby and the kiddos to go dress shopping with me!

They were all great sports despite the cold and snow. We made sure to make some stops that were fun for the kids. And unfortunately this trip just confirmed that B is a tween, not a little girl anymore.  Not sure who is more heartbroken; Hubby or myself.

After trying on what seemed like a million dresses, I finally let Hubby and the kiddos pick for me.  The dress is not like any I have ever worn to past Balls plus it will be easy to dance in. (I'll be sure to take lots of pictures Friday once it has all come together so tune in next week!). Which is just what I needed since I plan to dance the night anyway!!! (Hubby's note- My family on the dance floor rocking out to "Don't Stop Believin'" after a few libations is a yearly highlight for all of us. We tragically re-enforce every stereotype about white people dancing but we do have fun.)

And what should I spy at J. Crew on our way back to our car but a perfect sweater!  I told Hubby that I just "need" this lobster sweater.  I am not sure he sees the need like I do.  But don't you agree that it is just calling my name!?!


  1. Yes, you need the lobster sweater! I am impressed that your husband would shop for dresses with you. Mine would never do that!

  2. Oh, I can't wait to see which dress you got!! You guys are gonna have so much fun!! And yes, that sweater is seriously calling your name!!!

  3. I'm not looking forward to the day my Belle enters the "tween" stage. Congrats on finding a dress!

  4. Oh my goodness I hope you bought that sweater, it is precious and of course perfect for you! Can't wait to see the dress :)

  5. That sweater is perfect, and I can't wait til Friday! Xoxo

  6. Psst...Rent the Runway! They'll send a back up dress and an extra size with whatever you order. You can also see other people in the dresses (with sizes/measurements included).

    The selection is fantastic!

    1. I was going to use Rent The Runway if I didn't find anything on Saturday. But the BCBG outlet really came through for me. The dress was less to buy than to rent! But I will keep RTR in mind for next year:)

  7. Thanks for all the sweet comments! And as soon as the sweater goes on sale it will be mine!!!
