My Little Black Dress

I’m at that in between size stage where none if the nicer clothes in my closet look, or feel, right.  So, I went dress shopping at Burlington Coat Factory today.




I enlisted the help of friends and family via Facebook and Instagram, and finally purchased the last one, the black dress with leather inset. I really liked the first dress, the animal print, also. Since we only had it in the budget to buy one, I put the animal print back.
I tried on several scarves, but they took away from the slimming effect of the dress, so I found some chunky jewelry instead.


I spent $38.50 on the dress, necklace, and earrings.

Paired the black boots that I already own (bought last year, at Lane Bryant– I think), I now have a beautiful ensemble to wear to church tomorrow.


I wanted something pretty because I will be receiving my pastoral license during our morning service tomorrow.

Not bad for $under $40, right?

(ha!  I finally figured out how to publish a post from my phone!!)

Blue Nile Earrings Giveaway

Press Sample

I can’t believe Mother’s Day is just a few days away.  I haven’t even asked for anything!  I’ve no doubt that Hubs and the kidlets will pull off something spectacular, because they always do.  We typically go to my Mom’s church for Mother’s Day, and this year will be no different.  It’s such a nice way to share the morning with her!

As for Mother’s Day gifts, my Mom is pretty simple and never asks for a thing.  I guess I get it from her.  I never really ask for anything, either.  Of course I don’t mind getting chocolates, cards, flowers, or jewelry.  LOL.  Blue Nile recently sent be a beautiful pair of sterling silver earrings for consideration.  These just may be perfect for my dress for my Sister’s wedding later this month!  I’ve browsed their site and can honestly say that if you’re in need of a last minute gift for Mom or that special lady in your life, you should check out, where you can save 10%!  There’s still time to get Free FedEx shipping on your order!Blue Nile Earrings

The Blushing Violet

I was recently searching for unique mother’s jewelry when I discovered The Blushing Violet JewelryThe Blushing Violet, an Etsy shop owned and operated by Suzie.  Suzie creates the most beautiful beads in a pod pendant jewelry, tree pendants, and mother’s love pendants.  I was immediately in love with the beads in a pod pendants!  I wanted something to show off my *soon to be three* peas in the pod, and this pendant was just perfect.

The kidlets birthdays are in December and February, and the new baby is due in April. I knew I wanted the colors to match their birthstones, and that I wanted to keep them in birth order with Mister’s on top, Sister’s in the middle, and the new baby on the bottom.  I wasn’t sure, however, if I wanted faceted or smooth beads in my pendant. Suzie sent me a picture of what the beads looked like together.

The Blushing Vioet Smooth and Faceted Beads

I liked both, but I really liked how the smooth beads looked together.  I couldn’t have been more pleased with the way the pendant turned out, either.

My Beads in a Pod by The Blushing Violet

I absolutely adore it!  I was extremely impressed with the level of professionalism that Suzie displayed in her communications, as well as with how quickly she replied to my questions.  She is a true gem, and I would highly recommend The Blushing Violet to anyone and everyone looking for a special gift for a mother, grandmother, or someone special in their life!

Many thanks to Suzie and The Blushing Violet for providing the beads in a pod pendant for inclusion in the Baby Shower Gift Guide and for offering a Beads in a Pod Pendant for giveaway (US & Canada) in the upcoming Baby Shower Bonanza Giveaway!

V neck tee and Owl Ring

You may remember the v-neck t-shirt that I ordered from a few months back.  I ordered it in black, and absolutely fell in love with it.  Here it is with a skirt I also got from Oasap.

v-neck tee

I liked the top so much, I decided to get it in green, too, when my Fashion Hunter credits were renewed.

v neck tee

Not the most flattering picture (hence including the one with the black top, which is a much better photo), but you get the point.  It’s a cute top, and comfortable, so I got another.  The shirt comes in “One Size” which is about a size Large (or 10/12).  Of course, I have to pair it with a cami because noone gets to see that much of me.

I also snagged this super cute Owl Ring.  The ring also comes in One Size.  It fits my pinky, which is what I wanted.  It will look cute with an owl necklace I ordered.
