Emergency Purchase

This past Sunday, I participated in a Lady Diamonds Networking Social and conducted a workshop called "The Illusion of Abundance: The Basics of Mixing and Matching." (Workshop recap to follow in a separate post.)

The workshop was in Queens, NY and I actually spent the whole weekend in Brooklyn/Queens. On Friday and Saturday, I celebrated my friend's birthday, and the workshop was on Sunday.

You're not going to believe this, but it wasn't until AFTER dinner on Friday night when I realized that I left the garment bag with my Saturday and Sunday outfits at HOME - in another state!  I briefly considered going home to get my clothes, but decided that the time and expense weren't worth it.

That meant I had to go shopping. Now normally, going shopping wouldn't be an issue AT ALL, but I was under a little pressure.  I didn't know if I'd be able to find something that I'd like/would fit/be reasonably priced/appropriate for my speaking engagement on Sunday.

I went to the Kings Plaza mall, which I haven't been to in YEARS.  It's funny because it has changed in so many ways, but stayed exactly the same in others.  To make a long story short, I wasn't really pleased with the selection of stores or the selection of clothes within the stores, but I was able to pick up a really cute black and white dress from New York & Company

Here are a couple of shots of me in action...
