From Oompa Loompa to Glamazon!

Fierce as Tyra
I have a couple events coming up for which I needed formal evening dresses. Now that I am more oompa loompa than Tyra, I could not realistically depend on my stash of glamazon dresses in my wardrobe so I had made up my mind to face the store, face the horror of shopping for a dress. Now as I mentioned in an earlier post, shopping here can be traumatic. Add the fact that I am a wee bit (a lot) fatter than usual, I was definitely not looking forward to this.

It started off really shaky, but I would just like to say thank you to Peter Elias for saving a diva from potential dress failure. Not only did the store have dresses that looked halfway presentable, but all the dresses I tried on looked absolutely brilliant. I mean, the guy is not called the queen-maker for nothing. Having dressed several of our Miss Universe delegates in the past, I was really hoping for miracles. And yes...he still has the magic touch. I felt quite chuffed as the Brits would say, as I tried on dress after dress and got not just the "I am being paid to do this" accolades from the staff, but the genuine oohs and aahs from the other customers who kept asking for their size in the dresses I was trying, and from the husbands there with their wives (on the down low, of It was fun. Shopping was fun again.

I could have bought all the gowns I tried, but woman cannot eat a dress when starvation hits, so I only got two. But I am happy...and for a moment, I did not feel like an oompa loompa but I felt like the diva I know I am.


  1. Yaaaaaaaaaaay!!! :) So happy for you!! :)

  2. No matter how frumpy we feel sometimes, the diva-fabulousness comes to the surface. Sometimes you just need the right people in your corner at the right time with the right "magic" to lift your spirits. Can't wait to see the pics! Work it! Work it!

  3. Awwww, so happy to hear this. Oy. Dress shopping. Up there with shopping for jeans and bathing suits for me. Sizing is always impossible and if you're not feeling sexy, nothing will look right. So two dresses is pretty spectacular. Glad you got your groove back; I'm sure you'll look fab! XOXO

  4. That sounds like a lot of fun! I wish every shopping trip could be like that.
