Ga-ga

I'm am so head over heels in love with a dress I saw at the store today. The only problem was the one I wanted was not in my size and they are not sure they can order one in. Then I decide I can look up the company on the Internet but nope, can't find them.

Thing about me and clothes is that for the most part I don't care. It's when I see something completely classic and beautiful that actual fits me where things go crazy. I have only bought two other dresses that I loved on sight. Neither fit me now although the one that might have was given to my best friend and when I mentioned I would like it back she said there was no way it would fit me now. Nice. True it turned out but nice. And she kept it and then I think it died a horrible death in her washing machine. No. I will never lend her anything I really like again.

Anyways, the dress is just the perfect summer dress and I'm all ga-ga over it and I'm hoping the owners of the store can order the dress in my size. This isn't the dress but it's in the same style - it would come to just below the knee - the dress I like is mostly white with some green on it. I would buy the dress pictured but of course, they don't have my size.

Other news. It poured today while I went out shopping. It did not pour while I slept in the morning and it didn't pour once I was done all my shopping and had everything in the house. Stupid rain.

Books!!


Ames has been vera, vera happy with this series by Keri Arthur so I thought I would give it a try. If the first book grabs me then I figured I better have the second in the series up at bat. Just in case. I can be obsessive that way.

Also, nobody panic! I know these aren't romance and I'm equating them to something like an LKH when she was good.


Even though I was not thrilled with the last Chase book I read, I had to buy this book because she has written such gems as Mr. Impossible and Lord of Scoundrels.

Reading the backblurb I saw no mention of children or dreadfully boring canals. I'm just a wee bit excited!

The Leopard Prince by Elizabeth Hoyt was a book I wasn't sure I would buy and I'm still not sure how badly I want to read it. I do have to remember that her debut was extremely well done and even though there were parts of the story that upset me I'm hoping that anything that might push my buttons won't show up in this book.

And finally. I'm closing in on the end of Claiming of the Courtesan and I think stuff is beginning to gel in such a way that I might be able to write a somewhat coherent review. You know. As coherent as usual. Hopefully I'll have that for tomorrow.

Okay, I should be going to bed but my eyelids aren't heavy yet.

Yikes! It's three am. Screw my eyelids, I'm going to try and hit the sack!

Some of my most favorite articles of clothing were purchased on impulse and when I wasn't looking or shopping for anything in particular. They become cherished favorites. Sorry about your friend not returning the dress. Sounds like something is rotten in Denmark there. So what even if it didn't fit you, it's your dress.

That dress is so cute. I've been waiting to drop all this crappy weight before I buy anything cute, but now that I see it's not happening I guess I need to just get on with my life and buy the clothes I want. Plech!

I've actually liked all of Loretta Chase's books, including all the Carsington books. So I'm excited to be waiting for Not Quite a Lady along with a few other books from B&N.

Can't wait to hear what you think about it.

It's too bad for you about the dress Cindy! I hope you can find it though... me, I hate dress... probably because I don't have such a feminine silhouette LOL

I hope you enjoy the Keri Arthur... I'm setting out to go buy the Loretta Chase's one now...

I love buying summer dresses! I'm such a wimp in the winter that I never wear anything but pants, so as soon as it gets warm I want to pull out all my pretty things. I hope you're able to find the dress in your size (or something else like it).

The first Hoyt book pushed my buttons too! I'm giving her one more shot because I liked her writing even if the story ticked me off. :)

Rosie - I rarely clothes shop but this dress was so pretty and I thought 'what the hell' I'll try it on and I really didn't think it would fit. When it did I just wanted to buy it!

Jenster - I'm an 18 (Canadian because I don't know if there is a difference between us and the US) and if I had to wait to lose weight I would be wearing sack cloth ;) I'm over it - wear whatever makes you feel pretty!

Nath - I don't normally do dresses either but I really wanted something summery that I could wear to BBQs and feel a little more gussied up than my usual jean shorts and T ;)

Jennie - I'm a shorts kind of girl and will come home in the winter and get into shorts. Weird I know. I don't have many pretty things because I'm horrible when it comes to the washing machine - I have ruined more clothes! And then bless Bob he does laundry when I'm not looking and will dump something in that needs to be hand washed. Ooops. I'd never complain though!

I just have to finish the last few pages of this book already and then I can move on!!
