OK the black dress, a touch big, but I think passable. Simple black pumps with pointy toes, and pearls. It looks fine.
I did try on a champagne/taupe halter dress. Way big. Must sell. Will either consign it, or craigslist it. It is gorgeous, and has beading on it.
I would consider getting things altered, but last time I had a dress altered it cost $45, that is $10 more than I paid for the black dress new.
Silly. I will continue to bargain and clearence shop, I am brilliant at it.
In good news, I found PN a pretty winter dress, and sweater. SR now has winter boots, that are good to 10 below zero.
Wool socks, are hard to find, and the kids were pooped. No fun shopping with a fussy girl.
I will look for wool socks tomorrow after church. DH warns me I will freak over the cost. (Because I am the cheapest person on the planet) I am. If they are uber expensive I will just get the 3 of us one pair tomorrow, and will get another pair next month. I would freak out if I walked up to a register with 6 pairs of socks and they say, that will be 70$. I would faint dead in the store.
I have been thinking about crocheting a scarf for DH and each of the kids for a Christmas gift. I am certainly not the Worlds greatest crocheter but I think it might be sweet. I will do simple scarves, so it should not take me long. I think my Sister would like one too, she lives near work and walks often a scarf would make her warm.
Buy some yarn tomorrow.
