What I Wore After THE Dancing Disaster

This one time I walked into a crazy sale and walked out with a deal that was so incredible I did a wee dance of joy!  That dance of joy turned into a ridiculously embarrassing moment when I slipped, turned my ankle, and then turned bright red.  I had just sprained my ankle doing a dance to celebrate my shopping victory.  #loser  My teeny dance to celebrate the find of the Dennis Merotto dress was a painful lesson.  Always do your victory dancing in private, far far away from scary curbs so your designer dress doesnโ€™t equal a dancing disaster!

Now that I am fully recovered, I took that dress out for a spin, and as promised here is what I wore:NightOut1


Sometimes you just have to clean yourself up, dust yourself off and put your best killer heels forward.  Killer heels always make everything better.


Think itโ€™s safe for me to head back out shopping again?


  1. I think Ive read this post before. Repost of an old post ?

    • Not a re-post, but it is a follow up post! I was asked by a few to please post some pic of the fateful dress and let them know if I ever got my monster ankle back down to normal size ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Chandra Christine O'Connor says:

    its a lovely dress, Id kill myself in those heels, the highest my heels go are my Birkenstock sandals. and if I had the victory dance and fell I also would have tinkled my drawers lol

    • LOL I adore your honesty! (and will now confess when those heels met a cobblestone street that night, it got a little dicey!)

  3. Elizabeth Vlug says:

    Glad to hear I’m not alone in doing some funny stuff. But I have to say you look great in the dress. Worth a happy dance!

  4. Darlene Schuller says:

    lol if only I could count how many times I’ve done stupid…. ah I could write a book! Dramatic exits aren’t for me.. there is always some wall or door that just pops up out of nowhere to make me look like a fool ๐Ÿ™‚

    • HA! This my friend is why we confess all our sins on a blog! To share it with the world! Falling down and playing the fool just keeps life interesting ๐Ÿ™‚ Cheers!

  5. It really does feel good to get dressed up and go out sometimes! My Hubby and I don’t do it nearly enough. Well done on that dress. LOVE it!

    • Hubby and I don’t get out nearly enough either! Always seems “something” else or someone else gets in the way or takes priority. I think it’s just the stage of life we are in. One day this will change and we will wonder what to do with all of our time! Thanks for the compliments on the dress ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. so funny! You look stunning!

  14. nice shoes

  15. I love how self-deprecating you can be. You wouldn’t do a victory dance after finding such a gorgeous dress. You look amazing!

  16. Sooooo worth the injury! You look gorgeous!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. I’m still on the hunt for a dress for a wedding. I have yet to go out looking. I hate dress shopping.

  18. You look smashing darling!!! Love your dress and shoes. ๐Ÿ™‚ Maybe wear a helmet the next time you do a happy dance???

  19. Beautiful! Love both the dress and the shoes. I would probably break my neck wearing it though.

    • The only time I had a wee bit of trouble with those shoes were on a cobble stone path. Yikes! They were not built for that!

  20. Treen Goodwin says:
