You ever have one of those moments where everything turns out better than you expected? That was me this past weekend at my baby shower…
When I say phenomenal? I mean beyond my wildest dreams amazing. I had such a good time. It was low key, intimate and full of all the things and people I love.
My friends really went above and beyond to make sure it was more than I could have ever imagined, so that I had a great time and was very happy, because this time around this pregnancy has been no walk in the park. #BabyCinco is certainly making mommy earn his arrival!
Now ever since the first Instagram pic went up, everyone has been complimenting me on my dress, funny because I bought that dress back in Sept and had no intention of wearing it to my shower, I actually bought it for a wedding where the bride requested everyone wear white. I searched high and low for a beautiful white dress that would enhance the beauty of my belly and not make me look pregnant frumpy…
If there is one thing I don’t do while pregnant is frumpy….
But with Holiday Party Season upon us I wanted to share my hidden gem of places to go when you are in need of formal wear that won’t break the bank. My go to place that comes through every time not only on price but also on style.
Ladies I’m talking about Sears.. Yes…. you read that right. Sears. For the past 5-6 years I have turned to Sears every time I need a dress for a formal event..
I comb the racks and always find something that’s affordable.. this dress in particular was actually less than $100.. in fact it was even less than $80, less than $75, yes even less than $60… my friends, I scored this dress for a mere $53 in a 50% off weekend sale…
You just cannot beat this type of win! That’s only $6 more than my gel manicure..
YES, There are so many ways to look good and snag formal dresses on the cheap!
Stay tuned as I move into a new phase of my life with a baby boy, later this year, I’ll be sharing how to score baby boy clothes on a dime!
