That’s beautiful, the MOB shapeless dress and matching bolero isn’t my thing.

@ccantics:  I think its beautiful… my mom said she would not wear a long dress, which was fine, i pick my battles and this one wasn’t one i needed to win… she found a great find at Macy’s…basically a sheath dress with lace overlay… she looked great and i don’t think it was a “traditional” MOB dress.

Oooh I like that!  I’m planning to just go shopping with my mom next summer and help her pick out a flattering sundress.

I hate traditional MOB dresses too! They can look so matronly. My mom will be wearing a beautiful knee-length dress with sparkly lace sleeves.

it’s gorgeous – I’m kind of wishing my mom was wearing something like that – I’m worried she’s getting too dressed up!

my mom is wearing a long chiffon gown that probably could be for a Bridesmaid or Best Man… she’s 58 and looks great and she’s so happy in her dress!!! I think it’s really the mom’s personal style

I think it’s really pretty! It’ll be prefect for your wedding theme and season! My mom really doesn’t like the traditional MOB dress. She’ll be wearing a flowy tea length sundress.
