The package arrives in chic style!
With three young kids, I'm just hoping no one spots the peanut butter wiped all over my butt.
But when the package arrived from the Virginia Dare Dress Company not only did I feel glamorous but rejuvenated.
The presentation. Holy moly. Even the tape used to seal the package was eye-popping flowery beautiful.
Like unwrapping a lovely gift at Christmas was the unveiling of my dress. So pretty!
And the scent. There was the nicest scent wafting from the box. How do they do it?
At first, I couldn't figure out where the sweet aroma was coming from and then I realized both the box and the dress were scented. What a nice touch!
What is chambray?
Hint: This is the dress to wear on those icky, sticky, high humidity days. Light and refreshing, you will feel like you're walking on air.
So comfortable, you won't want to wear anything else from May to September! And don't even get me started on the pockets which are wonderful.
Not bulgy pockets mind you, but discreet ones that are just enough to tuck in your lip balm and grocery list. (You need those....right?!?)
For all you nursing or pregnant moms out there- the Virginia Dare Dress Company is ideal for you!
I'm still nursing my son and let's just say it's easy to accommodate him with the way the dress is fashioned and folded.
And chambray flatters all. I'm not kidding. Everyone looks good in chambray.
Fact! You will look amazing in this dress not only for the color but the shape.The Chambray Alice Dress snugs the waist but smooths out the hips.
First day of school jitters ~ not just the kids!
I'm not looking to get the most fashionable mom award here but I don't exactly want the "frumpy mom" label either.
Enter: The Chambray Alice Dress.
Finally, I have something to wear for "back to school" that looks as nice as it feels on the skin.
Comfortable and cool, I look chic at school.
It's amazing how much effort I put into getting the kids ready for school each day and ensuring they look presentable. But then I don't give my appearance a second thought.
After all, there's parent conferences, concerts, open house, the book fair and ice cream social among many other occasions where I'll be seen in public at school.
Sweat pants (yes...even clean ones) are a big no-no. I don't want to embarrass the kids or myself.
Neither do I want to feel fat or look dumpy. And no, I don't want to talk too much about my butt on this blog, but let's just say this dress has the skills to skim over the issue.
A dress that flatters all figures.
The Chambray Alice Dress is a multi-tasking dress that does it all. Feminine versatility at it's best!
