I have not dyed my hair yet.
Common sense & vanity have been distracted from the hair issue by something in my previous blog post. I knew when I wrote it that there was *something* odd about it, something about that post rang a tiny distant note in my brain. It took until Tuesday afternoon before that note was loud enough to be heard. Wedding, it said. When was the last time you were invited to a wedding?..hhmmm….
Oh my god! I’m supposed to go to a wedding on Saturday and I have nothing to wear!!!!
Yeah, vanity has been much much too busy trying on every even slightly ‘nice’ item in my closet and fantasizing about wearing my purple, pointy toed, kitten heeled shoes to even think about hair. Common sense has been going on about budgets, a lack of wedding gift, squished toes and shooting pains up my calves & hasn’t even thought about hair.
Vanity and common sense agree that my summer ‘nice’ dresses are too summery & light for an outdoor (yes, outdoor. In West Virginia!) October wedding & reception and my ‘nice’ pants, matched with my ‘nice’ blouses scream BUSINESS MEETING and not wedding. So perhaps a new skirt is called for. Or possibly even that old standby – the little black dress.
Because I don’t actually own one. Vanity has never been happy with the fit of any I can afford.
They also agree that I don’t need new shoes, but they are arguing over the really cute aforementioned purple shoes and the less interesting but more comfortable black, low heeled, square toe pumps. (I suspect one will be worn for awhile and then the other pair exchanged as the evening wears on)
So the box lingers on the counter while I go shopping for a skirt or dress…maybe a new purse to go with the shoes….
oh, and a wedding gift.
