Some very good friends of ours will be celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary in a couple of weeks. Only, they don’t know about that yet, because their kids are throwing them a surprise Golden Anniversary party at the local country club. I met their younger daughter, Sandi, when I was in college and we became best friends. Her parents are a wonderful people and I was ecstatic to get the invitation and RSVP.
I’m almost at a loss as to what I should wear for this special occasion. I don’t believe this to be a casual dress event, and I’m sure a shirt and tie is required for my husband at the country club. So that leaves me with the pending question on what should I wear?
A friend of mine suggested I check out some plus size cocktail dresses to see if I find anything that strikes me. I’ve been scouring the internet and I think I may have found a few ideas. I love the idea of getting dressed up to go out on a date with my one and only. And since we’ve both lost quite a bit of weight—we both are really feeling good about ourselves. I’m hoping there’s dancing because it has been way too long since the last time we got out and were able to get dressed up and party.
Once I figure out what I want to wear—then my next dilemma is to figure out what kind of shoes I’d like to go with my dress. Hopefully, picking those out will be easier than finding that perfect outfit—for this anticipated occasion.
