So. My brother is getting married on Friday. Which, mazel tov, it's about time, she's a lovely girl, I'm sure they'll be very happy, etc.
Anyone who knows me will not be surprised by the fact that I, at present, own one dress that I can actually fit into anymore. Yes, I've gained weight. *pokes belly* However, the one dress? Is ( this oneCollapse ).
And my mother fears that it will cause wank. Because apparently, it's bad ettiquette or something to do anything that will take attention away from the bride. Whether this dress would do that is an open question, I think.
However, in the interest of family peace, I visited Wally World, Kohl's, and Sears today, in search of something more "suitable" to wear. Dude. Clothes are expensive. And it's not easy to find something that I actually like at a price I'm willing to pay. Therefore...I left all three places empty-handed. Also, shopping for clothes with Da Boy alone? Is stress-inducing. *glares*
I'm very tempted to just wear the dress on the plane and not change out of it when we go see my parents, and let them pass judgement on it when they've actually seen the ensemble. If it's too gaudy or whatever, then, since we're getting there Tuesday, and the wedding isn't until Friday, we can go shopping in Dallas and find something different.
