Been shopping for The Cruise. It seems I only like black and white clothing. I like royal blue too but I'd feel like a five year old making that the signature color of my wardrobe. For the formal night I found this off-one-shoulder black velvet dress (on sale!) at Dillards. It's flattering and forgiving and I love it. Found some 6" black velvet shoes at Macys (on sale!). They KILL my feet but look amazing with the dress. I figure I can wear them for about two hours before they hobble me. The semi-formal evening is off ship and has a "Great Gatsby" flair. Why? I have no idea. Here's the thing: I HATE of costume parties. And the idea of dragging a an elaborate get-up and accessories half way around the world and back is even less appealing. The thing I HATE more than costume parties is being a PARTY POOPER! (Miss a party? No way!) So I just found a little (black! they didn't have red in my size) dress that has short fringes around it. Pseudo Roaring 20's. Funny thing about the fringe detail - good camouflage! Some pearls, long black gloves and a tiara (which, I just happen to have - thank-you Kathy & Sue!) and I'm good to go! What Dave is going to wear is still a mystery and not really a worry. Men sort of have a uniform don't they? Though, who am I to talk with my Garanimal black and white closet full of clothes.
We have some amazing tours scheduled but what am I thinking about? My clothes! Shallow perhaps. Prepared definitely.
