Shop Till You Drop

I decided yesterday that the dress I had picked out for the wedding Mr. Rogue and I are going to in Chicago just wasn’t going to work. So after therapy Tuesday I went looking for a new dress. I don’t have a problem at all just going shopping, but when you need something specific it drives me nuts. I ended up going to six stores (and spent a good amount of time in each of those stores) and still couldn’t find THE dress.

Of course I found a bunch of things that weren’t the dress. Distractions damn you for taking me off course.

And then at the seventh store I finally found something that I loved. Although it was a dark navy blue and I was hoping for a bright colored spring dress I couldn’t help but fall in love with it. Besides I reasoned I could make it pop with the right accessories.

OH if I had only known how those accessories would take me on such a merry little ride. I simply wanted a beautiful bright colored heel to contrast with the navy dress. SIMPLY was the part where I got it wrong. Over the next two days I spent time in every single mall in the general facility, five malls to be exact. While I was searching for my perfect shoes and purse I found a few things that I thought Mrs. Fruit would like for her dress. Since she was on lockdown at home with her two kids and busy packing I found her a belt and a perfect purse to go with her dress.

Despite my tenacity I didn’t find EXACTLY what I was looking for. Instead I started getting desperate and just started buying a bunch of things that were almost right. I figured I would just bring them all home, try them all on with the dress and then take back the ones that didn’t work. Four pair of shoes and three clutches later I went home.

Mrs. Dancer came over and I put on all the choices. In the end we decided to go with a pretty pink pop of a shoe. The color is so beautiful and the clutch I bought along with a pashmina that I borrowed from Mrs. Dancer completed the outfit.
