Greetings Fashion Pad Readers,
Let me vent for a few sentences about my disastrous weekend!!! Okay, first, after getting my room painted I realized I was running late and would not have time to go shopping for my ensemble for the fashion show. So I shopped my closet, which was fun and I turned up 4 potential candidates. Well I had to hurry up and leave to make it to my niece and nephew's dance recital. So I hit the highway and made it just 5 minutes before they started. Now the show started promptly at 5pm, the doors to the fashion show opened at 7pm. I was approximately one hour away in my hometown. Now why didn't I just wear my clothes that I had laid out to the dance recital so I could arrive on time to the fashion show? Well that seemed to be the million dollar question of the weekend.
Once I realized there was no way I'd make it all the way back home to change clothes I left the recital early, missing one of my nephew's performances :-( and I stopped at the mall to find a suitable option. It took me less than 35 minutes but the lines were long (what recession?) and the traffic was atrocious! My friend and I made it to the show at 8:45pm.......just in time to see the awards given out....arrrggghhh!!!!!! I was SOOOOOO MAD! It was a total waste of my money and I missed part of my nephew's performance. Thank goodness they had a second show on Sunday. Anyhew, since I had a new fit me and my bff decided to go out and tried to save the rest of the day.

I told you guys that a fedora and a blazer was a must!
The scene was FIRE! We had an excellent time!
Needless to say I think we made up for the missed shows!
