Emmys in L.A… What to wear? What to wear?

I landed in L.A. without a dress to wear for the Emmys. Seriously. (OK, I did bring a back-up dress, the one I wore at my Getting Gorgeous event 3 weeks ago, but I didn’t want to wear something I had just worn; not to mention, it wasn’t “fancy” enough for the Emmys!) I don’t know what I was actually thinking… usually I’m pretty good about this kind of thing… but with August being August, and having been here, there and everywhere over the last few weeks, I knew I wouldn’t have the time to go dress shopping with the boys. And as every mom out there knows… shopping with kids isn’t too easy… now imagine 4 boys, 5 and under. I spend my time saying, “Put the hangers down”… “Don’t look under the dressing room!”… “Don’t touch the clothes, guys!” Enough said, right?

So… as soon as we checked into our hotel in L.A., my mom and I realized we were right next door to a Loehmann’s. Believe it or not, I’ve never been in a Loehmann’s in my life. We don’t have any in Rhode Island and when I lived in NYC, I had never headed to the “famous Loehmann’s” there either.

More to come on our shopping trip… but, long story short, I found my dress! It took 3 hours. It took trying on about 100 dresses. And I didn’t want to buy anything over $100. My options were a bit limited… until I spotted this red Cynthia Steefe dress…

I fell in love with it! I just prayed it would fit… and, oh mama-mia… it fit live a glove!
