rockin' the dress

I totally rocked a sundress at a friend's going away to Afghanistan party. Not that we were celebrating him leaving. Heaven's no. We were wishing him God's protection as he fights for our freedom and the freedom of others. So yeah. I wore a super cute sundress and I totally should have taken a pic but I am not b.a. and do not have a fashion blog. Although from all this talk about clothes you might think I do. Or not.  I texted b.a. a pic of me in the dress and simply asked "Yes or no." knowing full well that she would tell me "no" if she deemed necessary. She came back with a resounding "Definitely yes!" I was thrilled to have one of my fashion icons (ha! that might be a tad dramatic but who cares) think something I picked out was cute. Woohoo! One point for "clueless in the fashion department Manda!"  I arrived at the party thinking I was totally to die for cute and received numerous compliments. I felt good and the 3 "Amber Waves" didn't take away from that feeling at all. *insert smirk here* 

I have this new found love of  the dress. I have the adorable sundress I wore that night. The super cute dress from Cassie (my blog buddy) and I was at Target tonight and picked up another dress that is SO FREAKING CUTE!!! I can't wait to wear it out on the town with my hubs. Maybe I should invest in some summery wedges to amp up the fashion meter (and to make my trunks look longer and leaner.) See? I totally pay attention to Rachel Zoe and Clinton and Stacy! I am not a total lost cause...although I secretly wanted my friend to nominate me for their show. Not anymore, baby, I am figuring it out! Embracing my body and rockin' the dress!!!

The wedge = Michalle's little bit of heaven. I wear mine so much, in fact, that I broke TWO pairs last week. Which just gives me an excuse to go pick up some more.

GET SOME FOR YOU!! :-D
