Black is the new, well, um… black

For the wedding I am attending this weekend, I’ll be wearing my little black dress.

black dress Not my dress.  But you get the idea.

Along with my fabulous sparkly black high heeled shoes.

And for fun, I’ll be sporting a new black accessory.

black eye This is a fairly accurate depiction of how my eye looks.

For the record, I blame the Yankees.

***************************************************

Before anyone gets all excited and calls 1-800-Poor Gal, I need to explain how this happened.  Mr. Strong got all excited about the Yankees scoring some runs and excitedly rolled over to tell me.  In the process, his elbow connected with my eye.  Apparently, my eye is allergic to his elbow.

LOL! I'm sorry, but that's just plain funny and I know, 'cause a similar thing happened to me some years ago.

The downside is that you might get more attention than the bride! But man, I love that little black dress!

sun lover said...

The way I see things you have 2 choices. #1 wear super dark makeup to make the other eye look the same or #2 accidentally get excited about no school while introducing your elbow to his eye. Then you could be twins!

BTW... those shoes.....KILLER :)

smiles4u said...

Well at least you will match...lol. Love little black dresses with cute shoes like that. Have fun at your wedding!

Jan said...

LMAO! Sorry, I couldn't help it, but that IS funny.

I hope you're okay. *snicker*

EXACTLY the reason I move to my Goldilocks' bed most nights!

Christine Gram said...

You are going to look so kick ass! BTW, I thought you were going to wear boxing gloves at first.

lakeviewer said...

I agree with Jane. You'll be the talk at that wedding. Better have an alternative story to pitch.

Midwest Mommy said...

We need a picture, lol!
Love the shoes, btw.

Jules said...

LOVE those shoes! I'm such a shoe whore....

Beth said...

Jane - I'm excited about getting out of town. I think my purple eye shadow will help me match up my eyes so it won't be so noticeable.

sun lover - I like the idea of being twins! I love those shoes, too! I psyched about having an occasion to wear them.

smiles4u - I'm planning on having a blast. Lots of wine. Lots of Tylenol.

Jan - My eye is just a little sore but really purple. I had no idea it would bruise like that. And it is hilarious to me, too.

Mom on Spin - He he! I know!

Christine - Maybe I should get some boxing gloves. :)

lakeviewer - We've come up with several stories. I'm sure we can have some fun with this.

Midwest Mommy - I'll have to see if I can get a picture. It looks like really heavy purple eyeshadow.

Beth said...

Jules - I'm a shoe whore, too!

Michele said...

You could blacken the other eye and go goth.

Love the shoes.

Oh My Goddess said...

That dress and those shoes would look great with the sunglasses Holly Golighlty wore in Breakfast at Tiffany's.

d. moll, l.ac. said...

Agree with OMG sunglasses would be uber fashionable.

Rusty said...

Would've been nice if they'd actually won the game. Girardi is an idiot.

LucyCooper said...

Oh no! Dermablend!

Kristina P. said...

I'm sure it brings out your eyes.

only a movie said...

Sorry about your eye. I would be excited to attend any event that requires black sparkly shoes...

TechnoBabe said...

Well if you are going to be all in black, you should wear dark sunglasses and never take them off. You will be mysterious and eccentric and sexy.

Brian Miller said...

ooch! yeah, i may have done that before...at least it will match the outfit? err...

have a great time!

The Peach Tart said...

Have fun at the wedding. You'll be fashion coordinated from eye to toe.

Cristin said...

Are your boobs big enough to keep the focus off your black eye?

;)

Candice said...

Love the dress, and I adore the heels!!!

Surely nobody will notice the black eye. ;)

Vodka Mom said...

I'm so sorry to say this, but that was hysterical.

Smart Mouth Broad said...

Oh NO! Think of it this way, you might just start a trend. All the celebs will be sportin' a baseball black eye.

Southern Drawl said...

Once I got a black eye by running into a door, really. My middle name is not Grace! It looked awful! I was so embarrassed and certain no one would believe the door thing so I kept wearing sunglasses everywhere.... Hope everybody believes the elbow thing....Sorry,on the bright side, at least it matches your attire... :)

JennyMac said...

talk about matching your entire ensemble! :)

Love that dress and shoes. You will look fabulous.

Michel said...

oMG that is funny! You know what will be even MORE funny?? If, when you're at the wedding, and Mr. Strong goes to tell you something, cringe and cover your face, then whimper "I'm sorry. I won't do it again." all scared like.....Mr. Strong will be mortified and probably buy you something to make you stop it.

Maybe another pair of those really cute shoes!!

WELL DONE!

otin said...

It is worth it if it is for the Yankees! Wear it like a badge of honor!!! Sorry I am so late :(

Aunt Becky said...

You'll look beautiful, black eye or no. I hear black is the new...well, black.

blueviolet said...

OUCH! You'll have a one of a kind accessory...

Kulio said...

Oh no! I had a friend who used dark eyeshadow expertly on her "other" eye, and she turned out looking dramatic and exotic instead of...bruised. Good luck!!

Wendi said...

Hope you had a fabulous time! Not everyone is SO chic that they have a black eye, too.

The Things We Carried said...

Ohhhh nooo! That is a shame.

Jane Lively said...

Lucy Cooper knows about dermablend: I applied it to her tattoo on her wedding day.

We left you a little "tag-you're-it" award over at http://fourjugs.blogspot.com/.

Susan Berlien (warmchocmilk) said...

Bummer. Well, You'll still look super sexy in your outfit...maybe you can hang your hair over the eye and just sort of peak out all night... ha!

Captain Dumbass said...

I hope you're going to use that for all it's worth.

Oh, and I love that header photo.

Janie at Sounding Forth said...

Love the dress and shoes. They should look good with his black eye!

Hit 40 said...

Get me some cake while you are there!! Yummy

You can never go wrong with a black dress, sparkly shoes & a few accessories. It's a wardrobe staple that should be in every woman's closet.
