Overall, I was pretty impressed with what I found. Like this slinky blue number.
And this sweet little dress (so perfect for auditions).
And this bright green one from J Crew.
I didn't actually buy that one, and I regret that decision. I think I'm gonna go back and see if it's still there.
The day was not without it's disasters, though.
I have a short waist, so most things I try tend to be too big in the shoulders - but this is ridiculous:
Eyelets are really in this season, and this Ralph Lauren dress seemed promising, but it didn't deliver.
Do you like embroidered velvet 80s party dresses? Then this is for you!
I put this one on and Mandi said, "You look like you're from The Virgin Suicides."
Here's a close-up:
When I tried this one, she said I looked like an auto worker. I asked her to please not insult auto workers anymore.
I've reached an age where certain styles look absolutely ridiculous on me - like this extreme bubble skirt.
Uuhh. It might as well be Limited Too.
Lastly, there's this gem:
You can thank Mandi for finding this one - it's from Friedrick's of Hollywood.
You've seen a lot of really interesting pictures of me, but I want to see some of your shopping disasters. If you don't already take pictures when clothes don't work, I'd like you to start. Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org, and maybe you'll see yourself in a post.
