So here I am in a whole lotta colour!  And heels!   As much as I love my basics and classic pieces in my wardrobe, sometimes a gal just wants to feel pretty.  This beautiful cotton frock from Voodoo Vixen hugs in the right places and and works perfectly on my curvy frame.   The 50′s inspired silhouette is so feminine.

When I used to work in retail I would always get annoyed when women would try on a dress and then say “But I have no where to wear it.”.  This made no sense to me.  I was always wearing dresses.  I wore them to work, out for dinner, or brunch and shopping on the weekends.   I used to say to my customers they should create an occasion to wear one.  Make a dinner date with your husband or plan a fun girls night out.  So now here I am, a full time mom and entrepreneur who works mainly from home.  As you may have guessed, I don’t wear dresses nearly as much as I used to.  I really need to take my own advice and create occasions to wear them.  This look has me motivated to plan a dress worthy night out soon.

Lately, I have been coming out of my black and grey cocoon, and adding  some pops of colour to my life.  This look is a big pop!  When I first started to accessorize this dress, I was grabbing subtle and neutral items but I felt like this dress could handle more.  So instead I grabbed this big orange clutch (that is made of the most buttery soft leather) and some shiney gold things.  I even opted to add in one more bit of colour with this pretty pink matte lip colour by Lise Watier.  Sometimes a girl just needs to stand out.

This dress though!  It fits like a glove, is soft and stretchy, and very flattering on my curves.  I was recently introduced to this LA and London designed label, Voodoo Vixen.  They are known for their vintage inspired designs and definitely cater to a curvy gal (yes, they even come in plus sizes!)  This green hue is a red head’s dream come true.  It might just be the dress I’ll be wearing to celebrate my second Mother’s Day as a Momma.
