When it comes to a dress you bought for your daughter six months ago to wear to your son’s bar mitzvah service, and she’s grown since then, and all of a sudden the hemline, which was marginal to begin with, seems like a micro-mini, and you ban her from wearing said dress and it’s two weeks before the bar mitzvah and you have to find a new one, and she doesn’t like anything in Annie Sez, and she doesn’t like anything in Nordstrom, except an $800 designer dress you decline to allow her to try on, and although you and the saleslady tell her she’s gorgeous in a pricey but beautiful Milly dress she turns it down, and you look at her choices online and ask her to turn off the skink button on wanelo.com, and she doesn’t like your humor, a half inch can make a huge difference.
Please God, creator of all and overseer of dresses short and long, please let one of the two dresses we ordered online fit and flatter and not be too short on my now tall girl (5′ tall at her bat mitzvah two years ago, 5′ 5″+ currently!). I bought a third option at Robyn Ross (tell Robyn I say hi if you go in) today, but since I am the one who bought it she won’t like it even if she does.
Forget any complaint I have had about the price of dresses. Other than not buying her an $800 dress, the budget has widened considerably the less time we have to go till March 16. I paid $15 extra for rush shipping, now can I have my stomach back off the floor please?
