I'm so bad, I just purchased another "long" dress from Dillard's that I've been looking at & hoping it would go on sale. I actually went there to look for something for my DIL for our cruise nx wk. & came home with the dress which was "ON SALE" Yea.
I'll post a picture soon. Not sure when I'll wear it, but I know there will come a time!

Beautiful dresses, everyone.

For anyone who has been following Marie (Porthopper), she is home.
However, she had more surgery on her foot today (outpatient) and is also having pain in her hands.

Hi iheartbda,
So sorry to hear that Marie has had to endure another foot surgery and is having pain in her hands. Please let her know that I will keep her in my thoughts and prayers for a speedy recovery.
Thank you,
Kathy

I wish this was a better photo of the dress I picked up from Kmart. It's a much deeper purple and actually looks quite nice. Or at least, that's that my husband tells me!


I also ordered this from Kohl's, but now I'm a bit worried that it just won't look good on me. What was I thinking getting a yellow dress?

Hello C & Hello ladies,

Yes, I am back from the cruise. I had a wonderful time. I had surgery on my right foot last Wednesday. It was planned before the cruise. I will be in cast for the next three months then the same to the left foot. I will see the doctor tomorrow for my hand, I am very sure they will do surgery on it. The next six months is going to be rough. I am tough and I am ready.

As soon as I am up to it, I will be donating many of the dresses and gowns at the recycle clothing thread.There are a dozen of dresses gowns I did not wear due to port days. We were too tired to go to dinner.

Take care ladies and have a wonderful day.

Marie

Marie (Porthopper101), your pictures were GREAT. I really liked that last one of you at the railing, you looked so happy. Hope your foot is doing better & thanks for sharing your pics.
(wish I lived closer so I could shop where your going to donate some of your gowns )!
