So, hubby is a martial arts instructor and as you can imagine he has a very diverse group of students. Young and old, big and small, and of several different backgrounds. Last night they received an award for Best Diverse Business in the town of Stratford, CT! What an honor right? So it was time to go dress shopping! I searched many different stores looking for something classy yet sexy, short but not mini and age appropriate. I’m no spring chicken anymore so I prefer to leave the miniskirts and revealing pieces to the younger gals. But that doesn’t necessarily mean I have to wear a floor length, ill fitting, wool turtle neck dress, does it? I usually don’t have much time while shopping because 9 times out of 10 there is at least one little person resembling either my husband or I, attached to me with about a good hour of patience for “mommy’s shopping’ but today I had a sitter! I sped to the mall, 5 mins away, and started my search. Something told me to check out Express. I haven’t shopped there in maybe 10 years but hey, they were having sale, and SALE is my favorite word. Ok?
After about 5 minutes of looking around I came to a rack full of some really cute dresses. I instantly fell in love with the lace numbers that were to the knee, low cut and had a short slit up the back. I grabbed the all red. Tried it on and loved it even more! There is a short underlay or slip underneath which is a little above the knee but still very tasteful. In love! I had to have it in all colors! Unfortunately, the powder pink was sold out in a size 6 so I only bought the navy and red. Super cute!
Hubby was wearing his navy suit and red tie, so I wore the navy and black dress with black strappy sandals, a black knee length light trench that I picked up from Forever 21 and a black clutch. I added light red blush and a Ruby Woo lip by MAC to complete the look and match the hubby. We were too cute!
