OOTD: “Mother’s Day Flair”
First of all let me just start off by saying, “Happy Mother’s Day” to all of the wonderful Moms and Moms-To-Be out there. Although I have been slaving over the stove all day cooking, I took a moment out to get dressed and take a few pics for you all. Now I hadn’t really planned on getting fixed up today but since I was having all of the women in my family over for dinner today I figured that I better look the hostess part. I’m wearing the newly released Coral Chiffon Gown from Chic and Curvy Boutique. It isn’t even on the site yet in this particular color but store owner, Melissa, let me get first dibs on it. This dress is what you would really call “Gone With the Wind Fabulous”. It is totally sheer except for a white half slip that is made into the bottom skirt portion of the dress. But I wore a black half-slip over top of that white portion so that the white slip wouldn’t show. I would suggest going a size down in this gown because it does seem to run full. I’m wearing my usual size 2X but in this particular style, a 1X would have fit just right I think over the breast area. I had to add a similar coral colored camisole underneath due to the breast opening being very wide. But that was no biggie, I could’ve just added a large broach or pin and made it work too. The cami is by Ashley Stewart and when they go on sale I would suggest racking up on them in all colors like I did. I believe I only paid around $3.50 for it. This chiffon dress is such a standout all on its own that the only jewelry needed is a large statement necklace. I added a brown jewel tone necklace and earring set and kept my shoes neutral in a pair of Bakers fleshtone pumps. The dress also comes in Mint Green, Black and White in sizes 1X-3X and runs around $100, but is on sale TODAY for only $84.15. So as I go chow down on this pot roast, spaghetti, rolls and more, ladies take a break out of your day to do a little something for yourself for Mother’s Day….go online shopping!!!
