Guess what I'm doing tomorrow.....
Yep...I'm competing in Chicago.
I was scheduled to compete and I didn't want to drop out; I think trying to return to normal is the best way to heal. I will be competing two days and in both styles....International Standard and American Smooth. I'm very excited, as always when I compete. I love it so much...it brings me joy, comfort and peace.
I'm really not all that crazy about the way this outfit turned out. I think the belt takes away from the clean lines of the dress...
...and my Lia Sophia pin. Oh, by the way....I'm going to become an LS consultant. They have a sweet sing up deal going right now on their start up kit, with LOTS of jewelry, including a necklace I've been drooling over. I'm kind of excited about it. I won't be a super motivate seller, but I'll host a few parties, make a little money, get a little jewelry and have some fun.
I went to my favorite consignment store today (Closet Exchange) which is right across the street from the ballroom studio. The convenience of this is probably not a good thing for my budget...but I wanted to buy a little bit of solace. I know this is not really the way to do that...but I also needed some fall sweaters and a brown belt..and voila'; I found them.
I'm pretty pleased with the new additions to my wardrobe and think I will get lost of wear out of them.
I will be posting some pics from the ballroom comp...again ;)
I'm going to wear the vanilla/chocolate tomorrow night for the Standard (stuffy) and I will wear the hot pink dress for Smooth (flashy).
I feel good about this.
See you after the comp!
