A Fashion Fine Line

My clothing needs are simple most of the time. If I have a couple of pairs of jeans and/or capris that fit me, enough shirts to get me through a week without having to do laundry, and appropriate footwear for the season, I’m good to go. Occasionally, though, like now, I require something for a special occasion.

When I was younger, it was easy to find a cocktail dress for an evening out. The problem then was finding the money to buy it. Now that I have the money, my body nixes just about any dress that I find appealing, and every outfit I’ve tried on is either too hoochie coochie-ish or too funereal. I look like I’m either trying to get picked up or have already been put down.

I’m not panicking yet. The upcoming event is still several weeks away. And I did find one outfit I really liked. What do y’all think?

Peace, people.

  1. My granddaughters, who are dress girls all the way, have recently begun asking over and over why I don’t ever wear dresses, or even why older pictures of me don’t show me wearing a dress. I’ve tried to explain the various reasons in terms they might understand, without dwelling on the 60-year-old body image issue and have finally given up. My latest response to them: “would you really want me to wear a dress and roll around on the floor with you (which I do sometimes) with my underpants showing? They decided that image was to horrendous to contemplate and haven’t asked about dresses since 😉

  2. All bar the shoes, I quite like the second outfit. I always like black when it comes to cocktail dresses, but, like you, I have little need of this little number these days.
