How a Dress can Inspire Your Appeal

I went to a childhood friend’s wedding over the weekend. The wedding was a beautiful set up on my friend, the groom, Matt’s father’s family farm. The heat was up but so was the fun. Surrounded by old friends from high school and college It was good to celebrate Matt, his new wife, Erica and introduce my husband to several old friends.

The lady with a cast is my mother. Mom broke her leg last week, she took a tumble down the basement steps at her house while doing laundry. I drove her down to the seating area so she wouldn’t have to walk. Mom is the reason Matt (and his siblings) are childhood friends of mine. Matt’s father is Dr. Williams (a family practice doctor in the town we grew up in) and my mother has been employed at his office for over 30 years.

As if it wasn’t good enough to see and catch up with old friends it seems the most attention I was getting was because of my dress. Anyone who knows me also knows my love for fashion. I love a good dress and pair of heels! I don’t have a favorite place to shop or a favorite brand when it comes to clothes. During my search for the perfect outfit to wear for a special occasion I generally roam the local thrift stores first and if I have no luck there and am pressed for time; I turn to my Amazon Prime account. My husband kind of hates when I shop for clothing online because he claims I never like it and end up sending it back. This is actually only a little true…(if he only knew about ALL of my online purchases, ha!) So for Matt and Erica’s wedding I turned to Amazon and was very pleased with the dress I ordered and apparently, so was everyone else.

I really loved this dress because the neckline is appealing on me, I love the length and I found the pattern and colors were very attractive. I’ve had hundreds of compliments on this outfit so below I am providing the links for my dress and shoes.

The dress and the shoes I chose from Amazon for this event were a win! Not only did I feel comfortable and pretty, all of the kind compliments were definitely a plus!

While I’m talking about good dress purchases from Amazon I’ll share another gem I purchased earlier this month which made for a perfect look at my nephew’s 2nd Birthday Party in August. I didn’t actually get a great photo of me standing and posing in this dress but here are a few to give you an idea.

In one of her books, hooks defined love according to Peck's definition in his 1978 book The Road Less Traveled: love is “the will to extend one's self for the purpose of nurturing one's own or another's spiritual growth” (as cited in hooks, 2000.
