I wish you could have seen me this weekend. Well, maybe I don’t really because you would have never come to my blog again. My stupid headache didn’t leave me until late Saturday afternoon. I could have made the highlight reel for “people of Walmart” any day this weekend. My daughter called me around 5:00 pm on Saturday and asked what I was doing. When I told her that I was finally getting dressed she thought that I was kidding. Lol!On Thursday when I went to work I took a shower and didn’t even dry my hair. WHAT??? I even went to work looking like that. WHAT??? I even took pictures looking like that. WHAT??? You have those to look forward to later on. Lol! I bet every one of you are saying, “I’m not going to miss those!” I scrunched it up and fluffed it a little and then sprayed it with hairspray. Joe told me that I looked like our dog, Lucy. Here is a picture of Lucy if you are curious what her hair looks like.When Joe came home around 6:00 Saturday afternoon and I looked “presentable” he stopped in his tracks. Lol! I think he had missed the old Tania. Let me tell you, I MISSED the old Tania too and I am certainly glad that she is finally back!!!Before I tell you about the adorable dress that I have on, I am going to tell you about my accessories. I went with pearls. When in doubt wear red and wear pearls. Lol! I hold my breath every time it comes time to link to my jewelry because it is selling out so fast that I never know if it is still going to be available for purchase or not. The Lorelei earrings are still available!!! They have an adorable seed pearl design on a 2.25″ drop. The Lottie necklace is one of my favorite necklaces that I have bought from Plunder. You will see me wear it a lot because it can go with dresses, jeans, or t-shirts. It is very versatile. The Lucinda bracelet matches the Lorelei earrings. It has many different floral seed pearl designs on the 9″ adjustable bracelet. The magnetic pearl bangle is not available but I did pretty well today since that was the only one sold out. All of my other bangles on my right hand are from Alex and Ani. Some of them were purchased by me and some of them were gifts from Rodan + Fields. BTW, I have added a Rodan + Fields page to the blog and that is where I will be sharing my love of the products and company. I will update it regularly with incentives, stories, and offers. For those who are interested, you can see the page link in the header at the top of the blog or click (here) to be directed to the page. If you click the link you will see my story and if you click on the drop down incentives tab then you will see the incentive that is current until the end of the month.Yes, I know that my Coach pumps are black and my dress is navy and white. I put them on and asked Joe if they looked bad and should I change. He assured me that they looked fine so off to church, we went. I don’t really like them with the dress. I just got a pair of white pumps on Saturday that I ordered and I intend to wear them with this dress from now one. Red would also be very cute for those who are a little more adventurous.
I fell in love with this dress the minute I saw it in the Trunk. This was one of two dresses that were in my Trunk Club this shipment. I LOVED them both. I am a sucker for gingham and the fit and flare design from Eliza J is very flattering. This dress is a little tight, okay, it is a lot tight but I kept it anyway. I hope it will serve as an incentive for me to be able to wear on our trip to Cancun in April. The belt is one thing that will not be staying for me. I have a long waist so it doesn’t hit me in the correct spot. I will just cut off the little strings on each side. I might add a belt, white or red, but it will be at my natural waistline. This dress is dry clean only which is not something that I like to purchase as I am not great at taking things to the cleaners. I’ll just give it to my Energizer Bunny Friend who sends almost EVERYTHING to the cleaners. Lol! The flare skirt line is very feminine and this reminds me of the dresses of the fifties. This is a size 12, which is my normal size for dresses, but it is tight. I won’t swear that it runs small, it could be that my waist is running larger. Lol! Do you own a white blazer? You NEED one. This blazer hides all kinds of bumps, lumps, and bulges that I want to keep all to myself. A blazer is one of my go-to slimming items. Wear pointed toe heels and a blazer and you will look 10 pounds lighter! In the Spring and Summer, you will get lots and lots of wear with a white blazer. Yes, I know they get dirty and mine is overdue for the cleaners, but this is a purchase that you need to make. Trust me on this one.
