So my mom and I are pretty LD so I haven’t had the chance to go shopping with her. My aunt is planning on making her outfit (she made my dress too) and she’s been sending me fabrics that she likes. I can’t decide since some of them seem so bright but just want to get some ideas on how this could come together.
Thanks Bees! I might post some of the fabrics to get your opinions

My mom and I are long distance too. I sent her some photos from Nordstrom (they have a lot of dresses online) via email and then ordered our top 4 for her to try on. She ended up keeping one dress and returning 3 but she’s still not sure if it is the one. She wanted to wear a color similar to the BMs so that really narrowed down her choices.

My mom is elderly but used to love fashion. She prefers wearing pants, and I found this jacket on HSN. I think with black chiffon palazzo pants and some great earrings it will come together nicely on her. I’m crossing my fingers it does 😉

My mom also feels more comfortable in pants and I think she was thinking something Tuni like but she sent me some pink lacey fabric that would match the BMs.
theeekingeek– I love it! I wonder if she would consider a top like that…very pretty!

probably not something i’m gonna like… We’re LD as well though so I don’t really have a say in it. I don’t really care too terribly much as long as it isn’t embarrassing and she feels good in it.

my mom doesn’t like the “traditional” MOB dresses and she doesn’t want a jacket, so we chose one for her from B2 Bridesmaid line.

I can’t find an exact picture, but my mom is something like this but with a round neckline and some large applique jewels on the front from Nine West and a grey pashmina to go with it.

My FMIL’s dress. I’ve never seen her get dressed up, so this is a big deal for her! She keeps saying how it’s so “blingy” haha.
