Let's Play Dress-Up

I have to admit it, I'm not a total clothes freak. But I do like to look nice. I'm a Virgo, after all. LOL Anyway, after agonizing over what I'm going to wear to the upcoming Open House, Vee provided me with the answer. And it shocked me.

It was the Silver Belle dress I'd seen online last Christmas. It's a very Asian-inspired outfit, made of silk and brocade. And the shoes -- heels! Yes, heels. I've never walked in heels before! Knowing me, I'll be falling all over myself. I guess I'll have to spend the next couple days learning how to walk in them. Or I could cop out and wear a pair of flats.
If my glasses look different, there's a good reason for that. Yesterday I left school early and went to the optometrist to get my eyes checked. He changed my prescription and I got a new pair of glasses! These new ones are rectangular and tortoise shell. I'd seen them before.
So now with new glasses and a new outfit, I'm just about ready to face the open house. I just have to figure out how to walk to the door first.

Oh, you'll look great in that dress! I'd seen pictures of it... it's quite nice! Good luck with walking in your heels. That's not one of my talents, lol. Quinn has no trouble though... she's just... way more graceful than I shall ever hope to be. Lol. I like your new glasses too... they really suit you, I think. =)

Yeah, Mum does look a bit like Marisol-she is Hispanic after all!

Wow, you really do look like my classmate Maura now...

Je suis jalouse. I am jealous. I don't wear dresses, but the one I wanted-the Silver Belle-is the one I can't get. Figures!
