found my dress!

Update on my shopping adventures. I sobered up about my momentary fixation with the Jimmy Choo/Hunter boots and realized that perhaps it's not fiscally responsible on my part to blow all that cash on rubber boots, no matter how gorgeous they are. So I called up Saks and cancelled my order. I will have to love you from afar, pretty boots.

So that made me feel a bit better about splurging on this dress today. As you know, I have a wedding to attend next month (Thank you so much for those who gave such great advice!). I considered hunting down the traditional Indian garb that Shar suggested, but in the end I decided that I would get more use out of a cocktail dress. I've stayed away from long evening dresses so far because I'd rather not pay extra for alterations and with miniscule self, I would surely need at least hemming. During my lunch break, I took a peek in the massive BCBG flagship on Fifth Avenue and found this dress in an XXS. It fit, so I got it. I would've liked to pay less than $258 but it's next to impossible for me to find cocktail dresses that fit off the rack so I was willing to pay full price. Just having peace of mind that I finally have something to wear already is worth the few extra bucks ...

Pretty dress! I love it.

Although I did think the Jimmy Choo wellies were pretty awesome, too... *whistles*

Oh man, I wanted them badly today. It's pissing rain all over New York. SIGH.

Go get a nice pair of boots from Target. Rubber boots are really not worth splurging on.

P.S.
I was so hoping you would have gotten the kameez since it would double as a dress ... but the one-shoulder dress is HOTT.

Love, love, love this! The color and off-the-shoulder cut are fabulous!

Shar - yeah ... I have a nice pair of wellies actually but they're just so tight around the calf! The hunt continues ... I'm sure I will end up getting a kameez sooner or later. The instant my feet touch Jackson Heights, a shopping spree will begin!

Erin - it is, isn't it?! I'm so excited to wear it!
