We are attending a wedding in two weeks. I have a great black dress that I've only worn once; I checked with the bride and she has no problem with guests wearing black. It's 50's style, with a v-neck, full skirt and a crinoline. Remember those?
I also got a great pair of shoes. I don't usually wear fancy shoes, so these are a real departure for me. I can't figure out how to paste in an image, so this is the link if you want to see: http://www.zappos.com/images/z/4/8/5...-MULTIVIEW.jpg
This is going to be a fun wedding. The bride is the mom of a girl who studies karate with my son, and I have gotten to know her quite well over the years.
