So would that make it “Somewhere to go but nothing to wear”?
Truthfully I have something to wear but not the thing that I want to wear. Why is that? I am selective in the clothing purchases and try to pick things that will have good uses, etc. I have plenty of clothes. So why do I feel as though I don’t? Hmmm… Thats a topic for another post.
I have a Christmas party tonight. A party with some of my lovely mom friends from the MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group that I am part of. The leadership team is having a “ball gown” party with a gift swap. I have the gift, I have wrapped it in a lovely fashion (literally) and I just need to figure out how to wrap myself. I’m a little short on ball gowns these days but I’m sure that there’s something hanging around that I can have some fun with.
With Christmas upon us here’s a wrapping tip that I learned from a friend. Socks make wonderful little wrappings for wine bottles, small candles, pretty much anything that is less than 3″ in diameter. Use a new pair of socks, take one and either put it in the toe of the other or use both on the bottle or jar. Tweek it around a little, add a ribbon and there you have it, a fashionably wrapped gift.
Off I go to find some wrapping so I can go to the ball. Where is my fairy godmother?? Or better yet, where did I leave my wedding dress??
UPDATE: I dug out a dress from my closet that I have used for weddings pre-kids. It worked wonderfully! Especially since the group was all women. I need to do some sewing to it before I wear it again. The soiree was wonderful and we all had a great time, now to find my pjs.
