Yesterday, my friend CV offered to help me look for a new dress for my daughter's Bat Mitzvah.
I was not going to get anything new, but my MIL suggested I get something new and offered to contribute towards a new dress. So, I figured, I should at least look around....
I found the most beautiful dress! It was perfect: beautiful, soft, flowy, fancy, elegant, stylish and unique; cut in a way that flattered even my mishapen body! The dress was even in my colors: different shades of tourquiose and black.
This dress was everything I could have wanted..... and completely out of my price range!
My jaw fell to the floor when I saw the price tag. Even with an additional discount, the price was not just out of the ballpark, it was out of my league!!
Do people really spend 2,000 NIS for a dress????
I would never dream of spending that much money on an article of clothing!!!
The only problem is that now that I have seen the perfect dress, everything else will pale in comparison....
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
Reforms in the Rabbanut
