I said yes to a dress ladies!!! 🙂 For anyone who read the dress dilemma, this decision has been impossible for me because I just long so much for my mother’s opinions and approval. We only tried on a handful of dresses before she passed away. So I searched, I searched, and polled the hive. . . and searched some more. And here was my decision . . .
I chose Maggie Sottero Holly! I love her so much. It was actually one of the first dresses I tried on a year ago, with my mom. When I saw the dress and tried it back on, I felt so sexy and like a bride in it. And then I remembered the feelings I had trying it on. . .with my mom still feeling like herself. I remember her saying “Oooo look at that. So Sexy!” We oooooed some more but then decided it just didn’t have enough embellishments on it, and no one where we went held up belts to the dress to see if you would like it. So at the time we didn’t think about it. Trying it on again (and again. . and again. .) I realized it was the one. It just needs some “sparkle” as my mom would say. And so my goal is to find a great beaded belt and matching appliqué for the hip. 🙂
What do you think of my Maggie Sottero Holly, ladies?
