the effect of a post about dress alterations

In order for this post to make sense, you should read this.

Go ahead, I’ll wait.

{ waiting }

Now that you’ve read about my trip to the bridal boutique, and the alterations involved, I have an announcement:

I won’t be wearing the dress as a bridesmaid.

Maybe you didn’t catch that, let me rephrase:

I will not be a bridesmaid.

Most people (my mother, the ladies at church, blog readers, and strangers) laughed; while others shared their tales of alterations, wardrobe malfunctions, and misfortunes.

‘W’ recently saw a picture of herself in a bathing suit. She gasped, “sweet Jesus!”

I can relate.

‘C’ lives vicariously through my busty adventures.

Her “girls” are smaller and easier to accommodate. She probably has cute bras too.

‘A’ is vertically challenged and must get a long dress altered.

I measure a foot taller than ‘A.’ She’s eye-level to the masses protruding from my chest.

On a lighter note, Dad challenged me to a day at the Shootin’ Shed with the target guns. He says the satin dress will add a touch of sophistication to the facility. He also assumes it will impair my sniper-like abilities.

Challenge accepted.

‘B” says I can wear the dress to the soybean fields. Of course, ‘K’ says I’m still not permitted on the tobacco planter.

My employment in the tobacco patch was immediately terminated when my skills were severely lacking. Planting tobacco, for me, is like patting my head and rubbing my belly at the same time. Impossible.

Good day, Y’all ~ it’s almost Friday!!!!!!!

Speaking of Friday, enter the TOMS *giveaway* ~ a winner will be announced tomorrow evening, April 13.

      Let’s just say that the original post hurt the feelings of someone.
      The good news: I have a dress to wear when you take me on your weekend adventures – hahahaha!!!!

        This cracks me up… So now she has booted you from the line-up?… Maybe you can donate the dress to someone like for prom or something?? Idk

      You’re too kind, Cousin Wilma!
      To answer your question, let’s just say the original post hurt someone’s feelings. It’s unfortunate.

    What a shame, especially after the extra expense you went to to have it altered, and now you can’t use it for the purpose it was intended for.
    Some people are too touchy and obviously didn’t see the funny side to your other post Nicole – it was a hoot!
    So I am looking forward to seeing what you get up to in “that dress”; get your money’s worth out of it girl!

      Thanks, Barb!!!! I think I’m going to take your suggestion and offer to change a flat tire wearing The Dress. HAHAHAHA My list is growing, come to Texas and we’ll go out “in style” sometime! LOL

        I’d love to Nicole – Texas is one place I’d really love to visit. I think we’d have a ball! xo

    Wow. Its crazy that she doesn’t want you as a bridesmaid because of a blog post. I would still show up at the wedding wearing the dress but then again I’m kind of crazy. lol.

      Unfortunately, Tranae, the wedding was cancelled. But hey, if you have a swag event and need a date, I’m your girl. HAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    OH MY GOODNESS! That is so unfortunate, but kind of funny at the same time. Then to have the whole thing called off? Oh the drama that surrounds weddings 🙁

      NEVER a dull moment, Elizabeth!!!!!! Thanks for visiting. =)
