As it turned out, Gareth's haircut ran longer than we thought as he prepared for Sunday's dance. Unfortunately, we were unable to get any video footage before we had to whisk off to the picture party and then the kids to their dinner reservation. I am happy to share a picture of Gareth and his friend, Libby, before they left the pre-dance festivities.
Gareth is wearing his $7.50 Emanuel Ungaro suit navy pinstripe suit and a $4.00 blue pinpoint Brooks Brothers shirt from the Salvation Army Store and a $45 Sid Mashburn silk bowtie. He was excited about how well his ensemble pulled together. I also spent $15 on hemming the suit's pants. At the end of the day, I spent about $72. That works for me.
Had I paid retail, I'd have spent at least $150 for a suit (did you notice that it was originally $500?!) and $40 for a shirt.
The pep in Gareth's step? Priceless. Sorry, MasterCard.
Thanks for everyone's kind comments.
