You can stop holding your breath now.
Daud and I tromped all over one end of the Mall of America to find something that fit me and that I liked. (I'm really not fussy but most dresses being sold for "Mother of the Bride or Groom" are just plain frumpy....and THAT'S where I draw the line).
LOL...this one works. It's ankle-length and more periwinkle than it looks.
It IS comfortable....just wish it had pockets.
Now all I need is silver shoes, handbag and jewelry...oh, and Daud said I probably should consider wearing makeup. Oh gawd.
