And the shopping continues 

Hmmm . . . there's a serious chance I could wind up in a 12-step program before this dress-shopping thing is finished. I ordered 3 dresses today, none of which are any of the dresses I showed you yesterday, and one of which I will admit up front that I have absolutely no intention of either (1) wearing to the dance or (2) sending back to the store.

Now this doesn't mean I'm turning my back on yesterday's choices. They're still all serious contenders, with the possible exception of Dress E--it's starting to look more and more like a nightgown to me. But my sister's fiance's mother (are you following me here?) sent me a link to SmartBargains.com, and I simply went mad. It's like TJMaxx, only online. Part of the pressure to buy, buy, BUY is that they tell you when only a few are left. Two of the ones I snagged, for example, were listed as being the last one available . . . and in my size! What's a girl to do?

Here's the one that isn't going to the dance. I just love it. And it loves me:

Now for the prom contenders! They're both long and flowing, one in teal:

And one in red:

The really cool part is that I bought BOTH of the prom gowns for less than what any one of yesterday's dresses would have cost. Fred likes to say that I save him money by buying more and more and more stuff (always on sale). Sweetie, I saved you hundreds today!

Keep the comments coming, whether by email or by using the comment section below! I love getting as much input as possible. Dress A is doing really well in the polls, but I'm not sure it's my color, especially given my current winter pallor. It's interesting to see that there are apparently 2 types of people--those who love the pink and black dresses and those who don't.

I like all of the dresses. I really like the new red one, but I like the teal too. And I love the floral. I am not much help. Decisions, decisions, decisions.
I love your flowers!
I don't know who you think you're fooling, but none of these gowns look *anything* like your prom dress. Hoop-skirt girl.
