|My Favourite LBD. Photo by JoyD.|
Yes, this has happened to me before. Travelling between two homes doesn't help. Yet my husband is not convinced that I have "lost" my dress.
"Have you checked the foyer closet?"
My response was neither yes or no because in fact, I hadn't checked the foyer closet. I replied with a question, "Why would I have put it in the foyer closet when I was unpacking? I unpacked my suitcase in the bedroom, I would have put it in my closet." He didn't offer any further explanations or suggestions.
Concluding that surely I had left my LBD somewhere in my June and July travels, I began planning a replacement purchase.

1. Length - as in the photo here, it should just graze the top of the knee to be the right proportion for my height.
2. Neckline - the last LBD had a simple round neckline with a 5 cm centre slit. This time, I think I will again look for a simple round neck or perhaps a v-neck
3. Syle - I definitely want a narrow sheath; Not a wrap as in the photo, not a full skirt, and not an A-line.
That's it, that's all. It should be easy.
It became easier. In preparation for returning to Canada, I was sorting through the things in the foyer closet and there it was.
"Is that it?" I heard over my shoulder.
"It is. I found it." There was no I told you so. He's like that.
"Good. Are you still planning to buy another black dress?"
"It might be a good idea. After all, just in case I do lose it, I'll have one ready and waiting."
"Bon idée." That's why we are still married after all these years.
I no longer "need" to plan a buying trip for a little black dress.
