soiree \swah-RAY\, noun:
an evening party or social gathering

I need to be invited to more soirees.  Fancy events where I can wear fancy dresses.  I mean, I have all these pretty dresses from college (of course I probably can’t fit into them anymore) and from Christmas parties and who knows when I will get to wear them again.  And don’t even mention walking through Macy’s or whatever at the mall and seeing the beautiful dresses and just sighing because I know I have absolutely nothing to wear them to.  I wanna dress up, dammit!  OK.  Rant over.

Bonus words: I liked these words, but couldn’t think of anything to write with them.
