I Don't Know How Superman Did It!

A fraternal organization that Hubby Tony belongs to had a big ceremony yesterday, and he decided to take part in it.  The main event happened in the afternoon, followed by an evening banquet.  While the big activity was going on there was a meet-and-greet and luncheon for the spouses that I decided to attend.

The parts of the outfit
In the morning we went our separate ways. Tony carpooled with some other people in the organization and left a couple of hours before I did. Shortly before lunch I got in the car.  I was wearing nice business casual clothes, and had a satchel with me. There wasn't a posted dress code for the banquet, and I could have gotten by wearing the same thing all day, but I don't have the opportunity to get dressed up often enough.  This event provided a perfect opportunity.

A couple of weeks ago I found a red and black sleeveless sheath dress on the clearance rack at Kohls.  When I saw it I knew it would be perfect.  I already had black heels and a black wrap to cover my shoulders if the room got chilly.  At the cash register the dress rang up at an even higher discount that I expected, so I knew it was meant to be.

After my afternoon activities were over it was time to change. The only place I could find was the bathroom.  Thank goodness it wasn't busy in there.  I'm used to being able to spread out when I'm dressing, and it was difficult to maneuver around in the small stall.  Five minutes later I was done, though, and ready for the next part of the day.

  1. LOVE that dress!!!!! And isn't it always fun to get a better deal than you expected? ;-)

  2. Lovely outfit! And what a fun occasion that sounds!

  3. I can see that dress could not remain on the rack. I recall seeing one picture of you, a petite blond. I know you rocked the dress.

  4. Beautiful dress.

  5. Very pretty! I don't get to dress up all that often either. Where I work, we're allowed to wear jeans so I take advantage of that most days.

    1. Ninety percent of the time I'm dressed in jeans or exercise clothes. It feels good to get cleaned up every once in awhile.

  6. I can just imagine how gorgeous you looked in that striking dress. And it was a bargain too. Wow!
