Shopping help?

So, Joe's work Christmas party (cocktail party at the 4 seasons) is coming up, and I really wanted to get a nice little outfit. (I am always looking for an excuse to get something new!!) So, I went to the mall today thinking I could find something. I got there at 10 am. By 1:30 (the time i had to leave to get Charity from school) I had successfully bought several things, AND returned them. I did manage to buy the new Glenn Beck book... ;)

What is my problem? 1. Chalky white legs. 2. The modesty issue. 3. The boyish build. 4. DO I NEED TO GO ON???

What do you guys wear when you go out? I tried so many different dresses, and combinations of strapless or halter or slinky dresses w/jackets or boleros - but jackets and boleros RUIN the cute ones...

Looks like I am wearing something old and boring... :( Does someone want to go shopping FOR me???

I'd totally go shopping for you if I lived by you. I love spending other peoples money :) Did you try the store Black and White. I love there dress up stuff. Well good luck with whatever you end up in. You will look like a hot mama no matter what you wear :)

you should totally be able to find something cute at ann taylor or black and white... Or go for something SKANKY at Charlote Russe or Forever 21... I agree with Leslie.. You have a HOT BOD... It isnt manly... esp if you put on that padded bra... good luck.. HOPE you post pics of what you decide to wear that night.

1st off I love your new header and family foto!
2nd who said you need to be modest at a work party:) just kidding!!!!

I went to Doug's work party this past weekend and wore really nice black pants and a sparkly shirt...now while I don't have the pornstar body you do I did look pretty good and girl just for the record i wasn't given your body because God knew I couldn't handle the modesty temptation...I would be slutting in up all the time...now you know the real me!

First off, love the new pic and blog header! CUTE!
Next, it is too funny that everyone mentioned the same two stores I was thinking of, Ann Taylor Loft and Black & White. At least I know I'm not too old fashion now. You could also try Banana Republic they had some cute dressy stuff the last time I looked at their website. Also, if you go into any of those stores and tell them they style you are looking for they can help you put together thing you might not thought of. GOOD LUCK! I'm just glad Brett's party is casual...wait, I think it is???

BTW, i MUST know where you got nate's sweater that he is wearing in your new family picture. I have dresses for the girls in those colors and have been looking for something for the boys. That sweater would be perfect!!

How about black tuxedo pants? With some heels they still look hip & sexy.
