To Buy or Not To Buy?

It has been an emotional week to say the least as Aaron and I as we adjust to life without Eric. Their have been many tears and sleepless nights. At the moment I am okay. That can change in a heartbeat, but at the moment I doing okay.

I paid someone to clean the house as I just couldn't keep up. We didn't worry about cleaning his last weekend here and tried to get in as much quality family time as possible.

I have a baby sitter for tomorrow evening. I am good. For now.

Now on a lighter note.

I have  been eyeing this dress at a downtown boutique. I am not sure if I should buy it or not.

It's on sale at 30% off. It regularly goes for $90. After tax it's $69. That's very pricey for a flimsy piece of fabric.I normally wouldn't shell out so much for a sundress. But. Of course there is but. It fits me well. I can dress it up or down. I can where a an open cardigan and flats and it's good for work. I can wear it with or without tights. It works with flip flops. And I kind of really like it.

This is where you my few readers come in. Should I buy it or not?

You know what I am going to say, right?
DO IT!

This coming from a girl who dropped almost $300 for a dress a couple of months ago...
Save it long enough and it will be vintage.

I'll Start:
You deserve it. You are an amazing mother and wife. You have a lot on your plate and if this makes you feel pretty there is nothing wrong with it. You can wear it in the Fall with a cardigan. You will wear it more than twice. It is a style that will not go out of style. It also is a cut that you can gain or lose weight and it will still look good.

I have more if you need them...
I've done this once or twice...

I like it, and I'm always a fan of retail therapy - I say go for it! :)

Yes it does work if I gain or lose weight. 5 lbs on my frame is the difference between a size!

If the economics of the purchase work, I'd say get it. Finding an item that practical can be a challenge for my wife, so I get how rare the opportunity is.
