The website says "You'll notice apparel ranging from business casual to after-five evening wear. Though you won't see many people in jeans, wear what is comfortable when dressing for a night at one of Dallas' premier entertainment venues, the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center."
Okay...so what do I wear to a premier entertainment venue?
I don't expect to have to wear a ball gown and white gloves, but I know I need to dress up. My husband agreed to wear a dress shirt & tie, but ... I don't wear much except jeans. I never wear skirts or dresses, I pretty much wear jeans. In fact, due to my recent weight gain/loss (I gained ~50lbs and I've lost 13 of it so far) I don't really have any nice pants which fit. My one dressy pair which fit got ruined in the wash. Am I going to have to buy a pair of nice pants for this one night, when I'm hoping they won't even fit in a month? Buying pants is kind of a nightmare for my figure...I can spend a day trying on clothes and maybe pick one item.
If I wore jeans would they kick me out? What if I wore jeans with a really really nice shirt and nice jewelry? What about shoes? I am pretty fashion clueless - I'd just like to look nice so we don't look out of place.
Am I making this into a bigger deal than it is? Ack!
