Did I ever mention that I have a shopping problem? Specifically, an online shopping problem. Click, click, click, and my new stuff is on its way. Sigh.
But, I do happen to need a dress to wear to my wedding shower this summer. I mean, everyone will be coming in to see me, so I must look nice. Right?
And, well, I think I would look quite nice in this lovely damask dress from Ann Taylor Loft. And not just because we’re having hints of damask in our wedding (seriously, I went from all-out damask down to a touch here and there… oh, where did the damask go?!).
Black and white damask, in my opinion, is just the perfect mix of the black and the white, while looking amazing with a great “pop” color like red, yellow or green. It’s kind of like a black and white cookie – the perfect combination of black and white in every bite!

Big sigh. My fingers are simply itching to purchase this little number. It’s on sale for a mere $39.50! I know that Ann Taylor Loft always has crazy good sales, so I think this will eventually land on the clearance rack. But it’s such a fabulous dress. Won’t everyone else just snatch it up before me?!
Sadly, like many of you out there, the Stilettos have been hit by the… duh duh duh… economy! We’re in a spending freeze until further notice, so new fabulous dresses at amazing prices are not allowed at this time. Please, my lovely damask friend, hold off until my credit cards* have thawed out!
Are there wedding purchases you’ve considered but can’t justify right now?
*Please note: No, the Stilettos have not found themselves in crazy credit card debt or other financial woes, requiring us to be put on a “spending freeze”. Other priorities have caused us to pull back on spending for the time being. Even if one of us finds the most AMAZING dress. That’s FOR THE WEDDING. Sigh.
