On any given day, you can find me wearing my yoga pants with a nice large sweatshirt, lounging at home or out doing errands and meeting friends, most likely with my hair tossed up in a scrunchie and gym shoes or flat warm boots to go nicely with the ensemble. Yep. I am that kind of mom… I am here to tell ya, at this very moment I am writing this-
I am currently wearing my favorite reindeer fleece men’s pjs with the same sweatshirt and tank top I slept in. Yup.
I have never been one to dress up or dress nice at all.
Fleece is my favorite…
Pony tails and messy buns rock…
Elastic is my best friend…
I confess. I am quite possibly the worst dressed mom in town.
When I want to spiff things up a bit?
I sport some cute stretchy jeggings and a nice sweater and if you catch me on a really good day, my hair may be blown dry and down. I may have some jewelry on… AND- it will all be matching!!
On a really good day.
There are times though, when I think to myself…
“I want to feel pretty.”
“I deserve to look pretty.”
“It’s time to get pretty.”
Can I hear a resounding and glorious “AMEN” come from the motherhood gallery?
‘Tis the season to-
It’s been a while since I took the time, the effort, and actually invested in buying a beautiful dress. Oh I have several old ones down in the crawl space collecting some nice mildew in a thriving community of mothballs. Even if I found them, I probably could fit ONE of my arms in it, as my ‘mama body’ has changed a bit since then.
Back in the day… I actually went to some formal events. And I looked good. Really good. I had the time, the energy and the figure to slip on any little black dress and primp and prime my presentation.
I recall hurrying through preparation steps 1,2,3… forget ‘primping’. And attempting to get the basics done, while juggling the kids and baking the chicken dinner and wiping a butt. I’d be lucky if I remembered to put earrings on.

Well ladies, it’s TIME to treat ourselves! When was the last time you bought yourself a pretty dress? The Hoidays are the perfect time to get fancy and frolic in our beautiful elegant and sexy dresses!! (Sexy- look it up. I had to…)
One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to take ONE evening to do just this. Buy a beautiful dress, take the time, the effort, and invest in getting myself pretty. I deserve it.
You deserve it.
I was SO excited that DressFirst.com asked me to take a look at their awesome site! I am thrilled and completely tickled that I had the opportunity to cruise around and take in the splendid dress wear they have. There’s something about dress shopping that turns a different switch on inside of me – the one that screams, “I AM WOMAN!” with squeals of delight!
DressFirst.com has a beautiful variety of dresses to choose from and this isn’t just a site for moms… there are gorgeous prom dresses, homecoming dresses, cocktail dresses, elegant evening dresses and wedding dresses! Looking for affordable bridesmaid dresses? There are plenty! There are also accessories and stunning shoes to boot! I cruised through all the options and longingly gazed at all the choices that were available. Oh girls, if you want to take a minute to dream…and possibly purchase something really spectacular, you must go over and check them out! Just lovely. SO lovely. I want either a cute, yet sexy cocktail dress like this:
(I like how it will cover my arm flaps with beautiful lace.)
Or if I REALLY want to look like A HOTTIE PA-TOT-TEE… Check THIS ONE OUT!!
(I could probably sport some Keds under that dress! What?! I wore Keds with my wedding dress… it happens. (They were leather, so I WAS elegant.)
Look at THIS ONE!
(Can you tell I love black? It slims even the puffiest of bellies.)
If you really want to knock your sweat socks off, you MUST take a look at their Quinceanera dresses! I didn’t even know what that meant, so I clicked on them and I…
Landed myself in Heaven.
Oh there are SO many to choose from, and honestly? They are absolutely reasonably priced, which makes me very, very happy. And did I notice they have “Free shipping”? Why yes I did!
The site seems very easy to navigate too, which is a big plus for me. You can narrow down what you are looking for with specific needs, as well as choose your color for ANY dress! They have so many colors to pick from. This one is precious:
(I love that color!)
I must stop! I could keep showing you dress after dress, but you need to just go to the site to see them all and swoon over your own favorites!!
Do you have a wedding in your future? A Holiday Formal? Perhaps a lovely dinner party to attend? A cocktail office party? Or maybe a glorious date night. Go take a look around and tell me what you find!
Treat yourself. Us moms don’t do that enough. Get yourself something pretty to wear. You deserve it. Something just for you.
We all deserve it, don’t we?
