This is such a silly post but sometimes a girl just has to have fun! I usually run around barefoot and in a state of dishabille (French for not pretty/dressing carelessly, circa 1673). But next month, once in Denver, I get to dress up. When I heard the banquet is to be served by waiters in white gloves, I decided my best church dress might not do.
So I went online and ordered this outfit from Penney's which was, glory be, on sale! I'm no photographer so these pitiful pictures don't do the elegant embroidery justice or show off the shine on those 3-inch high heeled shoes. But you get the idea:) The color of the jacket is "gunmetal" which reminds me of colonial days for some reason.
Imagine this in any other color and I would hide under the table. A subtle grey suits me just fine. The black skirt is ankle-length organza. Randy advises me to practice walking in those shoes.
So in just 28 days I'm off to the American Christian Fiction Writer's Conference for the first time ever and I'm taking you with me via my laptop:) Tucked inside my Kentucky tote!
One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon - instead of enjoying the roses that bloom outside our windows today. -Dale Carnegie
