- glad you like the pattern! If you go with the denim colored rayon, you can get away with more chunky/funky accessories.
And yes dear- you have to shave.
As far as nylons/pantyhose goes- a lot of the younger crowd goes without them now. Although personally- I have to have my hose! My legs need some kind of coloring on them, even if it's fake.
has a good idea as well. You can check out TJMaxx, AJWright, etc. I picked up a dress at TJMaxx that I wore to my MIL's funeral for $10.
I bought a formal last year to wear to my SIL's wedding that had been marked down from $145 to $15.
This was at a specialty shop.
So- look around. You may be surprised at what you find.
