Change rooms and feeling good

There's nothing like a bit of retail therapy to make a woman feel good. It's especially good if she's got a bit of extra money to spare due to a bit of saving...So while I was out at lunch time buying a white shirt for Sarah's school concert, I thought I'd have a little look for myself and found a gorgeous little black and red dress!It's sleevless and close fitting on top, then poofs out from the waist down and is just above knee level. I'm going to wear it tonight.

I did a silly thing in the change room. It's not the first time I've done this too! I tried to find a zip but couldn't see one so proceeded to squeeze the dress over my frame. I held my breath and had a slightly scary moment where the dress felt too tight over my ribs to allow my lungs to expand!! I'm terrified of suffocating....But I managed to pull the dress down and that's when I saw the hidden zip on the side... At least I know I'll be able to put the dress on again without having to go without oxygen....

I loved the dress so much that I even went out of the changeroom and had a walk up and down the store mirror. It's times like these that you really need a girlfriend with you to say

"Wow you look great! You should buy that!"

But I became my own bestfriend at that time and went ahead with the purchase!
I can't wait to wear it tonight!!

Isn't it great when moments like that happen... you find the perfect outfit and it actually fits! Even better, you didn't have to unzip to make it fit! :)
