When was the last time you went somewhere and you were completely out of place? I mean…totally wrong. For me, it always comes down to wearing the wrong thing. This doesn’t happen often because, for the most part, I know what to dress to specific venues. I know what to wear if we have to go out with my husband’s business associates. I know what to wear to certain types of restaurants, to bars, to school functions for the kids.
But, every once in a while I can still feel out of place. At a wedding, for example, if we’ve traveled to a part of the country I’ve not been before. I wore an outfit to a wedding in Georgia on a Saturday night that was way too dressy. Up in the New York City area, a Saturday night wedding is always going to border on black tie even if its not stated as such. Everyone was really dressed down for the occasion on Jekyll Island in Georgia. I just dressed wrong.
A girl my brother dated for a while came to an anniversary party for my parents at one of the nicest restaurants in New York City wearing a completely slutty dress. I felt sorry for her the whole night. She was surrounded by my parents and their friends and she looked like that.
How about you? When have you felt Out of Place? Comment and I one winner will get their choice of one of my Edge stories.
