Husband just LOVES formal dances etc. and they were a part of life when we lived in Dublin. Well, his boss also loves them and gets tickets 4 times a year, so he tells me (it's a new job.) I'm a bit dubious because I don't like pretentious people and haven't got a thing to wear. I told husband that I'd love to wear a fifties prom dress (definitely NOT what anyone else will be wearing in this crowd) and he smiled and said "Absolutely, just be yourself."
So, Junior doesn't know it but he's coming shopping with mommy tomorrow to try and find a dress like one of these.
When we lived in Nashville I never felt like myself for some reason (probably because of my job situation.) Here, I feel like "Heck YEAH I'm going to wear me a birthday cake dress! And even BETTER if I can find one with Hello Kitty on it!
I am, however, glad that he and his friend opted out of the Dumb and Dumber tux duo of baby blue and bright orange. It might clash with my dress.
I'll let you know what I find (hopefully something fabulously gaudy. I'm giddy with anticipation!)
