Ever since I was a little girl, choosing a dress to wear on Easter Sunday was kind of a big deal. Whether it was frilly and floral or simply chic, my mom always set aside some money for a my dress. Now, that I’m all grown up, I still make sure I have something special to wear on this day. This year, I set aside a dress that Lane Bryant sent me from their Lane Collection.
Can I just live on an island forever? Please? OK maybe just on the beach? Before I get too deep into dreams of taking naps on hammocks and enjoying slushy drinks, I’ll take the time to gush about City Chic sending me a few pieces from their Resort Collection. I mentioned I was headed to the Dominican Republic and they wanted me to live in that true island style.
Would you believe me if I told you that I’ve been dreaming of a pair of high-waisted denim? Well…I have. I know it’s kind of weird, but I practically live in denim. Day in and out. But, I’ve always struggled with the low rise factor. It’s so annoying. Then one day City Chic sent me a pair.
Guess who cleaned out and rearranged her closet? Me! And while I was in there, I ran across this floral number from 2011! Now, let me be clear. I don’t normally wear short dresses. It’s just a personal preference. I will rarely wear anything above the knee. But, hey…why not change things up with a flirty floral dress?
I’m going to be completely honest—I have never worn a body con dress. I’m sitting here trying to think and I’ve realized that…nope…never. Yes, I was a little scared of them. I’d see others pull them off with no effort and I felt a little intimidated. So, I never bought one. But, then one day Sealed With A Kiss Designs sent me their Kayla Tank Dress. I knew it was a test.
Let’s be honest, awards season has been pretty good so far. But, we still have the SAG Awards and the Academy Awards to look forward to. Don’t you just love the anticipation of the red carpet? Who is wearing what designer? And what will their hair and makeup look like. This past week, I actually got the inside scoop to a few Golden Globes celebrity looks thanks to L’Oreal Paris.
When it comes to my personal style, I never put comfort on the back burner. I just can’t. No matter where I’m going, my outfit has to be comfortable. That’s just how it has to be. It’s something that took me a long time to learn, unfortunately. It comes with age I guess. And that’s perfectly fine with me. Being comfortable equals happiness. And I love being happy with my fashion choices.
