We’re making long to-do lists for our autumn QM2 voyage, mostly it’s about gathering outfits for dinners, some formal evenings that require a tuxedo for Mr. EOS and a long gown or two for me.
Last time I wore a long gown was for a deb party in 2008 and it wasn’t a dress I particularly liked to begin with but it fit, so I bought it. Not seeing a need for it taking space in my closet, I donated it to a charity. So now I’m shopping. Not easy. Ugh.
Mr. EOS, on the other hand, got the deal of the century when his sister spotted a full tuxedo at the local thrift shop. $64. Yes, $64! Thrift shops are THE go-to for items like this. Sure, it belonged to some guy who is now six feet under but hey, wouldn’t he be happy his tux is getting a second life? I hope so.
