Inappropriate Attire

Have you ever gone to a formal event, but been the one person wearing less-than-casual attire? Or, maybe shown up at a friend's bar-b-que severely overdressed? How about, worn an early-1980s prom dress when everyone else is wearing clothes circa 2009?

Oh, you haven't? I have.

And can I just say, aaawkward? For me to say I felt awkward, that is an amazing feat because I rarely feel that way. I do some really embarrassing things, but it's not until much later, when I am in the midst of a guess-what-dumbbutfunny-thing-I've-done-now story, that someone brings it to my attention about how embarrassed they would have been if they had done the same thing.

I'm sure it was the announcement that Craig would be wearing a 'vintage' tux that compelled me to buy a totally-80s-style prom (or bridesmaid) dress, but on Sunday, I went to Kim's dinner/dance fundraiser for the scholarships in her daughters' names. ...and I was the only one who wore a 1980s prom dress.

I even sent Kim a text a few days before, telling her about the dress and my plans to look like a total idiot and she seemed excited. As it turns out, she was excited... that I would look like a total idiot; I assumed she was excited for my dress.  (By the way, I tested my curlers two times .)

Everything seemed fun - but then, everyone - besides myself - was wearing attire current for the year 2009. 

Versus me in my 1981 dress:

Day 037 Year 2: 80s Prom

Seriously. 

Awkward.

  7. Oh, now I am extra upset that I did not go. (I meant to go, but some family stuff came up and I couldn't.) I was going to go in a prom dress, too. For realz. I was intending to bring the one I wore to my junior prom. Big hair and everything. And now I know we would have matched! No fair.
