Those of you who like to chill with me on Facebook know the exciting adventure I had last week at The White House.
I have a ton of informative news to share from that event in the near future but, in the meantime, let’s talk about my dress!
It’ not every day you have to pick out White House appropriate attire, and I didn’t know if I should go super conservative, or just blow it all out and have some spring time fun.
So, naturally, I asked you guys…
You all convinced me that blow-it-out-for-spring-time-fun made the most sense.
A dress I rushed all over my town to locate on the only weekend I had to shop.
I am in a bit of a fancy clothing slump at the moment –everything is jeans and tops or casual shirt dresses in my closet and of course none of that was right for sitting within eye contact of our First Lady (and you guys, EYE CONTACT, all of the eye contact, like we probably had a moment there was so much eye contact. Okay fine, I had a moment and she was probably thiiis close to giving secret service the cooky eye to get the nutty lady crying in front of her out of her eye line.).
I started the hunt at Kohl’s. It’s one of my go-to spots for snagging an affordable dress on short notice, but the line was wrapped around the shoe department like whoa and…
So I left and went to Ross. It’s not one of my faves, but I like to check there because every now and then you stumble across a diamond in the rough that makes combing through racks of misplaced items and shopping in the dressing room where most of the clothes are hanging anyway worth it. Sadly, it wasn’t my day and I left empty handed because everything I saw was $12 and sketch…
So, in a last ditch I’m-only-going-in-because-it’s-right-next-door effort, I tried Dress Barn.
There is something inherently wrong with shopping for clothing at a store with the word barn in it’s name –is it a store for cows, or a home for cows, or wait, am I a cow?!
I don’t want to live, work, or shop in a barn. It just bothers me.
Only, as desperation set in and their catchy spring-a-licious window display caught my eye, I decided to at least go in an regroup.
And YOU GUYS! I walked up in there and was like…
So many spring dresses! ALL OF THE SPRING DRESSES!
They were pretty and stylish and affordable, but not cheap. And they had basically one of every single thing in my size!
I didn’t feel barny at all!
I tried on 13 dresses that day.
And found my Obama dress…
Two days later I was rocking it inside (and outside under my coat because it was chilly) of the most famous address in America…
You can snag the exact dress online here: My Obama Dress.
Not a fan of this style? Shut yo mouth. I’ve found plenty others that can make your spring style pop for under $100.
Now, if someone could talk to Mother Nature and get her on board!
