Buyer's Remorse

Remember that dress I gushed over? Well, I still love it. I really do. But when I think of wearing it to this Christmas party, I get nervous. Let me explain.

My husband works in a scrap yard. He's the manager/supervisor. It's a dirty job, but he loves it mainly because he finds lots of "toys" - yup, he's a guy through and through.

To make a long explanation relatively short, I'm worried I'm going to be overdressed. At last year's Christmas party, people really didn't get dressed up. Some did, others didn't. But the party is going to be held at a pretty prestigious place this year and having a limo pick us up is another bonus.

Part of me thinks I should take the dress back and get something a little less dressy. The other part rebels at such a thought because 1) I love the dress and 2) I really don't care what people think if I get dressed up, which seems to be at odds with the first part of me. But it's one of those things where the more I think about it, the more determined I am to wear this dress.

Turns out I probably won't be able to wear it to my company Christmas party. I guess last year they wore jeans and sweaters. How boring is that???

So what would you do?


I love to hear from you!
