Meet the Parents … ESD Event

New School Welcome Party

My step-son is starting high school next year and got accepted to his first choice school, ESD (The Episcopal School of Dallas). So … today the school had a “meet the parents” event. The theme was “taco night” which left the dress code wide open. However, I’ve been to too many private school events to know it’s better to be over-dressed than under-dressed.

As a Rule

Truth: I hate these events.

I know, I know, they are supposed to be good and help you get to know the other parents and kids going to the school, etc., but I’m just not one for small talk. As my brother-in-law (a self-proclaimed Voute’-ologist) tells me … I’m the type of person whose battery gets drained at these events because I’m an introvert. I guess I just don’t have the patience for the frivolous chit-chat. I find it mind-numbing and totally false. I would much rather sit at a dinner table and learn something real about you than give you a fake smile and pretend that I care about how many clubs the school offers. Don’t get me wrong, this is a skill I wish I had. My older sister, Kathy, is brilliant at it. She runs everything at the schools, she’s president of everything and is super involved. We were not built the same way, because (let’s face it) if we were I’d be an ass-kicking lawyer making tons of money. Instead, I’m a blogger, internet site owner, possible future make-up artist, possible future aesthetician, possible future dog shelter owner … a person who has no idea what the future holds for her. Yeah … believe me, I wish I got some of the genes Kath got. :) C’est la vie – she’s not as funny as me …so there’s that!!! :)

What I Wore

White Culottes from Zara’s last year’s collection

Army Green Bodysuit by Leith … Also from last year

Gucci open-toe metallic pumps from a million years ago & thank God … have you seen Gucci this season – not good!

Kara Ross Snakeskin Clutch – they are no longer made. I got this one from my mom and I have two awesome other ones. If you love … check them out on The Real Real – worth every penny. Esp. since you won’t be paying nearly what they sold for originally & they are superb quality!
