I ran to the mall on Tuesday. This never happens. I typically don't shop your normal indoor "mall". I stick to free standing stores or boutiques.
Anyway, I wanted to pop into a few stores I haven't been to in awhile; The Limited, Express, New York & Co, and Gap. Nothing dazzled me that day and I started the trek back to my car, empty handed.
I parked at Dillard's and as I was making my way back through the store to leave, I strolled pass the formal gowns.
I thought to myself, "I want to get dressed all fancy and go somewhere." I haven't purchased a formal gown since I was in college for my sorority. Bridesmaid dresses don't count.
I spent about 10 minutes perusing the area pretending and imagining I actually had a reason to go to the dressing room and try one on. I even had one in my hand, but then I smacked myself back to reality, put it back on the rack, told myself I was wasting time and headed for the doors.
Here are three that I couldn't stop drooling over. I was drawn to strapless that day. I don't know why because let's face it, I don't have much to hold a strapless dress up.
Okay, this is where the story gets
good weird. I have mentioned to you guys before that I have a weird sixth sense. Examples: I will think of someone and then I will see them or they will call. I will think of something and it comes true. I will dream about an event and many times it happens in some shape of form. It freaks me out and plays with my mind.
So, getting to the point of this post. Ross called me Wednesday morning from work and this was the convo:
Ross: "Do we have any plans for Saturday?'
Me: "Nope, not that I know of."
Ross: "Well, we just got invited to a gala for the hospital. Wanna go?"
Me: "Is this like a formal, black tie event?"
Me: "You have got to be kidding me."
I don't know about you, but this blew my mind. I mean, guys I NEVER go to the mall. I NEVER EVER look at formal dresses for shiz and giggles. I haven't even thought about buying a formal dress in FOREVER.
I tell ya, the mind is a powerful thing. Now, if I could only predict the lottery numbers, we would all be set!
Back to the mall I go, then cover myself with a self tanner and actually shave my legs. I have one day to to get this done. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the dress I love most will fit like a glove. Already stressing, but so worth it because I am going to my version of an "adult prom".
Does this kind of stuff ever happen to you? If so, does it freak you the heck out?
Have a super fab weekend and don't forget Super Bowl Sunday. I can't believe football season is about to be over. Where has the time gone?
