WHAT WILL I WEAR???? - Part 2

Our son's wedding is at the end of October, so for me the big question was

What will I wear?


Ok so I hope you read part one  -  if not click here for WHAT WILL I WEAR????
                                   and then head back here again.


So 

You see something you like but immediately you start thinking -

 will it please everyone else as well???...


My first reaction was  "Oh I think that is just me!"

However I know that sometimes I like things that are a bit different to the norm but that doesn't mean that I wear really different or strange things, at least I don't think so anyway.

So I decided to send a picture of the outfit to Linda in South Korea, thank goodness for ipads with their screenshots and email and messaging and facetime.  (Sounding too tech savvy here and I really am not like that.)

Well she liked it and what did she say?  Did you guess it?
She said "Oh mum that is just you!"

Did I run out and buy it?   No.

I kept looking online for a few weeks and then finally I showed the picture to Fred and he thought it was nice so he said "That's nice, do you like it?"

I wonder why I was talking about an outfit for the wedding and showing this to him and he had to ask me if I liked it?   

 

Are all men like this?


"Well do you want to get it?"  he asks then when he realises by the look on my face that I obviously do like it.
My answer "I don't know."
So he was probably thinking

Why is she making such a point of showing me this if she doesn't know if she wants to get it, I thought she liked it, was I wrong?

So another few days go past and then I start hinting that I want to go to a certain shopping centre.
Finally I just have to say to him that I want to go and see if I can see the outfit "in real life" in the shopping centre and not just online because I need to actually see exactly what it is like and then I need to try it on because I'm not sure of the size I would have to get but I want him to go too as he needs to see it too.

So off we go and when we get there he thinks that he's just going to go into the shop with me I will try it on and that's that.
No, no, no,  I direct him to a "Bose" shop and I go in to look around and hope that it is there.

I enter the shop and the first thing I see is the outfit, so I try it on and the 3 ladies working in the shop all think it is lovely on me, so
     they bring me the shoes to match,
           bag to match,
                 hat to match,
                     take hat away
 (hats at the moment are very large and I think definitely too large for me)
                           bring fascinator to match,
                                  take fascinator away (even the fascinator is large)
                                         and bring smaller fascinator to match.

And I liked it!
     I phoned Fred, he came and the ladies ushered him into the changing room.
          He liked it too.
               "So are you getting it now?"  he asked.

"Do you think the kids will like it?" I ask.

  1. You have a honey of a husband. The Husband of mine would say about the same thing. I'm glad you liked the dress. I like the idea of a fascinator more than a hat. Okay, on to part 3.
