Tuxedo Accomplished!

A very dear friend of mine is getting married on October 31st, and he has asked me to be his groomswoman.

You cannot imagine how touched and honored I am that he asked me to do that. I am very excited!

One of the things we discussed was whether to wear the same type of dress that the bridesmaids will be wearing, a tuxedo, or a black dress with a sash the color of the bridesmaid's dresses. We both decided that if I could find a tux that fit me well, even if it was not the same as the groomsmen, we would go for that.

After much searching, I was about to give up and go for the black dress with the sash when, lo and behold, I find this absolutely gorgeous female tux at Lord and Taylor. On sale! It has a skirt instead of trousers, but it's just perfect. I have now spoken with my hairdresser, and we have decided that he will style my hair in a totally retro look. I am going for the Marlene Dietrich gig.

Now I need shoes ...

This is going to be so much fun!
