Dining Out Dress!

I am so excited! I found a dress for the dining out next month. I have never been to one, actually 13 years as a Chief's wife & I have never even heard of it before. Its a formal deal like the sub ball. Usually when this kind of thing comes up I get a little excited and just KNOW I will find the perfect dress and I always have a certain cut in mind. Then I go to try and find this perfect dress, which is never to be found. Most of the time I find something I'm happy with.
This dress is awesome! It even has sleeves to hide the beginnings of old lady arms! Very classy look. It doesn't look like much on the hanger & it is a little plain but I'm going to enlist the help of my step-Mom who is awesome at adding stuff to make it look fancier! She did it for my wedding dress & it was beautiful Of course I will have to do the sewing on of any embellishments because I am here & she is in Cali. My idea is to just add some kind of sparkly stuff around the neckline (it goes into a v in the back) Feel free to give me any suggestions you may have as well.

And the best part? It was marked 160 & because after trying on many dresses at other stores I was just going to suck it up & buy it (yes we all know I'm cheap) When I took it to the register it was......85!!!!!!!!!!!

Sweet deal. You know I already love it and I can't wait to see how it turns out with some sparkle around the neckline.
