Good news and bad news

Good news was that returning the dress that didn't fit was relatively painless, once we acertained that it was not available in a larger size and that no other dress would work. The long-skirted one? Puddles around my feet. We'd have to get a foot chopped off for it to workable on me.

We then left Macy's and went to a large sized women's boutique - Ashley Stewart Woman. There we found, for less money, a skirt and top (separates) made of plum silk. 100% silk. The skirt is comfortable, flattering and a good length. The top is a complex wrap thing fastened by hooks and eyes. It leave far too much chest exposed, but that's easily handled. They're graceful and appropriate. I'll probably wear my dogwood brooch and no other jewelery. And my green hat, which is lovely with plum.

To manage the top, I went to Sears and purchased a silky t-shirt, the kind mean to go under suit jackets. I got it in a dark mocha that works well with the plum and my skin. It's obvious I'm wearing something, but it doesn't contrast too much and it won't interfere with any other color choices. I also got a cute little microfiber evening bag, big enough to hold my wallet.


And here comes the bad news.

I lost my wallet sometime between purchasing the shirt and bag and getting on the bus. Two calls to the store have produced nothing. I'll go back there tomorrow.

And then spend tomorrow night on the phone. *sigh*
