What?! I have to wear a DRESS to the horse show???


So, to my utter dismay, I discovered that I am expected to wear a dress to the last night of the horse show.  This is utterly insane!  Why did I have to pick the one discipline of riding where you have to wear make-up, do your hair, and wear a suit to ride your horse??  

Since I have no nice clothes, I ran up to the mall Saturday night.  And spent about 3 hours fruitlessly searching for something that fit, didn’t cost a lot, and looked halfway decent on me.  I finally got the brilliant idea to hit the girls’ department at Lord and Taylor.  Pay dirt!!  I found a black dress on clearance, that fits, and doesn’t make me look like I’m ten.  It also hides the fact that I have nothing up top, and flatters my generous rear.  Yeah!  All that for 30 bucks!!

I also purchased a cute jacket at Marshall Fields and a skirt that matches at Kohls but I’ll be returning them this week.  I wasn’t sure last night if the dress would work, but when I modeled it for Dean today, he said that  it was long enough, and looked nice.  I was worried about the length, but it comes to the tops of my chubby knees, so if I wear spandex hose, all of my jiggly parts should be contained, and everything should look alright.

Now, I have to find a pair of shoes to wear! This is stupid!  I have to wear heels to the horse show??  God, I hope I don’t trip and fall down the stadium steps!!

    So, why do you have to wear a dress on the last night?  Will D be wearing a dress?  If not, I think you have grounds for a protest! ^_~

    Why?  Good question!  Ask the weird people down south.  And no, he is wearing suit.  I could probably wear dress pants, but I don’t think I could buy the pants and shirt for less than the $30 I spent on the dress, and I would still have to purchase new shoes.
