I just want a dress...is that too much to ask?

Every time I really want something, I can't find it. This week, it's a nice fall dress...something to wear to all of my upcoming fall weddings (one this weekend) that will keep me warm, but still look dressy at the same time. I would prefer something in a purple, blue, or brown color, without the crazy prints that make me look odd. The big trend seems to be those sweater dresses, but I don't like how they fit, or look for a dressy occasion. Boo. Jumpers are in too, but the last time I wore a jumper I was probably seven, so I don't feel "grown-up" wearing one of them! I'm also not willing to spend a ridiculous amount of money, which means that I'm pretty much out of luck. The cutest dresses I find on a sale rack are only available in a size 2...the only dresses available in my size are quite possibly some of the ugliest dresses I've seen! I pity the fool who actually buys them and wears them thinking they are pretty! Then again, one person's junk is another person's treasure.

This is frustrating.......

The other annoyance in my life is the waiting game which I spoke of in a recent blog. Click here to read it. Blake and I really like one house, only we can't make any moves until we know for sure if Blake has a job, and what his salary will be. It would help if Blake wasn't so busy and if the other Dr. wasn't so busy, and they could actually touch base instead of playing phone tag. Hopefully everything will work out. But, I am going to worry my pretty little head about it until then. To make matters worse, the house we like just had a price reduction and is having another open house this weekend! AHH!!! Well, I suppose the price reduction is a good thing from a buying perspective...but the open house sucks for us.

i will say that I love my wrap dress that I got at target early spring...it's dark blue but it does have a sort of criss-cross tan print going through it but I like it. It's also got 3/4 sleeves so it's perfect for fall too

and isn't it weird about the jumpers? I think women look like they're trying to be five years old again too.

Thanks so much for commenting on my blog! Thought I would return the sentiment...

Unlike the previous commenter, I really like the layered look we've been seeing recently, including the jumpers. I think you just have to find the right thing to go under it, and fing the right jumper, and of course don't buy it unless you love it! :) If you feel like you look five years old, you will probably act like you're uncomfortable, which just ruins the outfit! Keep looking...I know you'll find an outfit, be it a dress or jumper or whatever, that's perfect for what you are looking for! PERSISTENCE IN SHOPPING!!! :)

I wish you the best of luck with this whole house fiasco. I feel for you. Just buying a house seems like such a huge undertaking, I can't imagine trying to coordinate buying one and selling another at the same time. I hope it all works out a hundred times more easily and smoothly than it seems right now! Love ya!

Ok, so this weekend I was shopping for a suit and I felt the exact same way. Nothing! However, I did find a BUNCH of cute dresses SUPER on sale at Dillards and also a really really cute one also super on sale at Von Maur. Don't know if you've looked there, but it might be worth the trip if you haven't.

(Down with jumpers.) :-P
