I am a stay-at-home mom who admires your sense of style! Your blog is a wonderful glimpse into a world where fashion is appreciated and not selected merely for its washability. :)What a pretty dress! I love the feminine, vintage feel. Matching the red with gray and gold is an unexpected and elegant combination. A much better pairing than with black (too severe) or white (too santa):
I have 3 kids ages 3, 2, and 6 months and have been simply overwhelmed by motherhood since my most recent son's birth. I am ready for a dress-up night on the town in February, when a college girlfriend of mine is getting married. My husband and I have booked a room at a swank hotel in town, and I want to look stunning for him and for me, not to mention the college gang. :)
I have the dress but am looking for some accessories and shoes that won't break the bank. I am rather short (5'5), so shoes with a heel that elongate my legs would be great. Also, I live in the tundra of Minnesota, so if it's not a bank-breaker, I would consider some type of elegant cover-up to add some warmth to this sleeveless dress.
If you have the time, could you offer some desperately needed guidance to a desperate housewife?
