Oh dear! What to wear to the Oscars!

academy-awards-filmstrip-logo

Decisions. Decisions. When and if I finish writing my book and the screenplay is miraculously (doubtful!) nominated for an Oscar, I worry about what dress I am going to wear to the Academy Awards. I am not even going to think about the shoes and those dangerously tall heels. The problem is the dress. I need something soft and flowing…sort of like a silk shirt hanging precariously from a clothesline while blowing gently in the wind. I do hope that you can get the picture.

Please! I cannot JIGGLE as I walk up the stairs to the podium. The dress should be the item that is swaying gently…certainly not me!

I have heard it said that television cameras make you look at least 10 pounds heavier. Or is it 20 pounds? There is no way that I can let that happen. I need 10 pounds lighter. Or is it 20 pounds lighter. More? Let’s just not talk about it. My wedding dress was a size 5. So there! It doesn’t matter how many years ago that event occurred.

Since I need a dress for the Oscars that flows when I walk, I have chosen a few that should work. I simply cannot worry about this any longer. I need to spend my time finishing the dadgum  (Texas talk again) book!

Announcing the choices and also the not so good choices for my future Oscar dress…

green-dress

Actually…I like the color…I will need a lot of gym time for this one!

 

light-blue

Beautiful! Strapless…help! I may need glue.

 

gray-formal

Pretty and grown-up style…maybe this is the right one!

 

favorite

I like the looks of this dress…but no flow…might jiggle on the steps!

 

blue-old-fashioned

This looks glittery…bling! Nice straps, but look at that tiny waist! Gym again!

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

Announcing the not so good and totally not understandable possibilities…

not-me

Just too much to look at…according to me!

 

no

I do not get the net material at the bottom!

 

mermaid-look

Interesting material, but I cannot tolerate another mermaid dress!

 

That is it! All the choices that I could find. When it is your turn for the Oscars, I will be sure to help you find the perfect outfit!

    • I was thinking that I might could sew two of the dresses together and make one comfortable dress. Of course… two contrasting, but compatible colors. I could make one for you too. Forget it…I would have to get four dresses and George (in the last comment) hopes that I don’t choose anything too expensive. The cabin is better.
