Please Help Me, Miss DJ

I have three weddings in four weekends coming up. That means that it's dress-buying time. UGH. UGH. UGH. I would rather go to the dentist, clean a litterbox, go bra shopping or mow grass than go dress shopping. (Well, maybe not grass mowing... I really hate that.)

I went to Nordstrom tonight and forced myself to try two on. I didn't like either of them. I couldn't handle trying any more on. I ***HATE*** buying dresses. I hate shopping for clothes and shoes. I really hate it.

But I have to get a dress before September 15th as that is when Craven is getting hitched! I do have this dress that I seem to wear over and over to wedding after wedding. But since I wore it to Craven's sister's wedding, I probably should try to find a different one. I found a picture of me the infamous dress and it is a hysterical photo.

So, I got some emails from Craven today regarding his wedding reception music. He completely stressed and needs help. He asked if I could help him put together a playlist. [Big grin.] He needs four hours of danceable music that will please the parents and the kids and those of us in cocktail dresses. [Bigger grin.] It's the ultimate mix tape!!!!

I am excited to help out with the music and I have a huge playlist ready for him.

But I still have to find a cocktail dress. I am going to brave the boutiques this weekend in search of a dress that I can tolerate. I don't even know where to go. I hope that Modern Times has something. Where else can you find a dress around here?

From the link to the dress photo. I can't stop laughing about the tailor's comment.

---Is he having a seizure? does he always wear silly suits?

Runder says:
----Haha. You call it a seizure, he calls it "dancing." Amazingly, I think I know what move he's doing here. I think he might also take exception to the "silly" remark. :) "My style is not a joke!" has often been heard coming out of his mouth. He complained that I got to spend money on a dress, so he bought 4 suits for the weekend, three for this party at which he did two costume changes. This one still had the tags on it and had never been hemmed. The tailor looked at him and asked "Is this what's in style?"
