I sure hope you aren’t getting tired of the grey swing dress yet. But if you are, scroll on down because I have some other pictures for you. For those of you who are not, I want to show you just how versatile a blank slate dress can be. This particular dress can be dressed up and worn on a special or dressier occasion. Just add heels, a little bling and pair it with a dressy clutch.
You could wear a colored pump for a pop of color (I don’t own any yet). Or you could do a strappy, blingy or metallic sandal.
In this picture, a guy was walking by the dock and asked if I’m a model. Why yes I am! Tee hee!
This is a dressy look but it’s no ball gown. Friday was my birthday and it just so happened that it was the same day as the Taylor Engineering Founder’s Day Ball! I was so busy all week long that I had not had time to find a dress. I thought I was going to end up wearing the swing dress as my ballgown or pull out an old dress. I did manage to pop into the Bluetique and Ross but I wasn’t having any luck. There were a few dresses that were okay but nothing that I felt really good in. Michael was encouraging me to go to a “real store” but I hated to drop that kind of money on a dress that will get little wear. I like to stretch my cost-per-wear thin!
I decided to try one more time at TJ Maxx and Marshall’s and I finally found one at the last store! (I went into the fitting room with 11 dresses!) I tried on a hot pink, light grey, several black lace dresses and this is the one I settled on.
It was a fantastic birthday! I highly recommend having a ball on your day! (See what I did there??)
Come back tomorrow to continue the Swing Dress Saga: a casual look!
