2006, and except for a male VIP from the home office, it was an all-girl affair.
I had a wonderful time and seemed to be accepted by the other girls, but I was way overdressed for the party.
As I wrote at the time, "Most of the other reps wore slacks or jeans with tops and a minority wore skirts with tops. I was the only rep wearing a dress."
I did not want to make the same mistake again, so I planned to dress to fit in.
I want to wear my new leopard platform pumps and I tried to build an outfit around those shoes. I quickly added my black leggings with the zippered cuffs and my new black B. Makowsky satchel bag to the outfit, but I needed a top.
I own a leopard print long-sleeved V-neck top, but it is too tight. It worked when I wore it with soft-cup bras, but does not work with the full-figure bras I wear now. So I began shopping for a new leopard print top.
I checked all the websites of the local stores and found a top at DressBarn that would be perfect: a sequined leopard tank.
After lunch, I visited the local DressBarn.
Don't you just love it when you walk into a store and exactly what you are looking for in your exact size is hanging on the first rack you peruse! That is what happened to me today; I completed my Christmas party outfit and it only cost $17.
