Dressy Shopping

The only thing I like about shopping for prom dresses is the pictures. And the colors.

I like the colors a lot.
There are too many choices.

The guys have it easy. Black or white. Hmmm....do I wear a cummerbund to match her dress or a black/white one? Does my handkerchief match her dress or do I wear a black/white one? These are not hard choices. As a matter of fact, I think they call their gal and say, "Do I wear a cummerbund or not? What color? What color handkerchief?" 

The gal does most of the work. The guy does most of the "Uh-huh, whatever you say."

I know this from watching J attend a couple proms.

But the girls? 

Way too many choices. 

Solid color or print? Which color? Strapless? Halter? Sleeves? Length? Poufy or sleek? Beaded? All of these things have to be decided on.

Stop the madness.

Let me get off this merry-go-round.

And after eyeing many dresses, followed with can-you-zip-me-up.....now-get-me-out-of-this several times.....

Houston, we have a dress. Whew.
