This was another find I picked up from a little gem of a consignment store called Modify Your Closet.
I wore this out on the weekend dancing and got two compliments from men.
I think I prefer a compliments from women over compliments from men. When they say they like your dress it means they like the actual dress.
Guys…it may mean, "I like your body inside the dress".
I think most guys at these social dances are starting to hate me now anyhow. Word has gotten around that I can be a bit of a B*tch I think.
The problem is that the guys always ask me to dance on the slow songs.My husband and I have a rule that I'm okay with; when he is gone and I'm going out to dances with friends I won't dance any slow songs. I kind of like the idea of saving all the romantic sexy songs for my husband. Plus I don't like to touch someone that I don't know and have them squeezing up against me asking random awkward questions.
Call me old fashioned but I like my personal space to be,
When guys come up and ask me to dance the slow songs and I turn them down by saying, "I'm sorry but I don't dance any slow songs" quite a few of them get upset. I had some argue with me a bit, pull faces, you name it.
One really old dude ask me to dance this weekend on a faster song and I panicked a bit and said, "We're dancing apart right? Separate. With space in between us. " He was a bit surprised but didn't freak out and say he absolutely had to hold me while we danced. The guy had some class and still managed to get his boogie on. He had some moves too. He did continue with a bit of awkward talk though and boldly stated, "You're much too young to be coming here."
I have to admit after he said that I liked him more. (Frailty, thy name is woman!) I should have replied that I didn't realize there was an age cut-off. I know I'm not the youngest one there, so I wonder if he says that to all the gals. Sly old dude!
The keyhole neck detail is what sold me on this dress.
In the end this turned out to be a great dancing outfit. The dress is loose, (a bit warm as it's polyester) but there were no wardrobe malfunctions. Even when I was going nuts to one of my favourite songs by Icona Pop I Don't Care! I Love It (trust me to like "the angry song").
I even managed to dance most of the night in the shoes. Platform wedges are like training wheels for high heels.
