My brother is getting married in a few weeks, which means I need a dress for the wedding. Preferably, within the wedding colors. It's hard enough to find a decent dress nowadays, but limit it to 3 or 4 colors and it's pretty near impossible, am I right? I'm right.
So I ventured to the mall a few days ago. Outcome: unsuccessful. I walked into every store that offered clothing and only found two dresses that were worth trying on.
I must have been hiding under a rock for a year, but when did all (and I do mean all) of the dresses start hitting three inches above the knee? And in Utah, no less (I can't imagine what it must be like trying to find a dress in the mission field, bless your hearts). Does this mean I should start shopping in the *gulp* woman's section? Maybe I should have made this change long ago, but the junior's section is just more appealing. You know, because they don't carry a large section of tropical clothing or pastel jogging suits like my new found friend the woman's section.
And mall workers - not helpful. Thank you for trying, though, partially shaved head female mall worker, but I'm going to go out on a limb here and say our sense of style is probably not very similar. Mainly because I prefer to keep the hair on my head.
And also, I hate department stores. I prefer a store where you can circle the entire room in 2 minutes. My sense of direction is poor anyway, but put me in a department store and I circle the entire thing 2 or 3 times before I finally realize I've already been there.
So all in all another disappointing day at the mall. I should have bought a cheese corn dog, then my shopping would not have been in vain.
