Do you ever just feel.....

.....like you need a new dress?

I am feeling that way now. I can rationalize this purchase for the following reasons:

1. Upon reviewing my closet, I have found that the majority of my dresses are black. This probably has something to do with #3.

2. I have two baby showers to attend this summer - one for a baby girl and one for a baby boy and I simply cannot wear black!

3. I have lost 47 pounds since last summer and a lot of my clothes are either too big for me or too blah (i.e. dark colors to conceal my previously larger body).

4. I just want one.

So, here are some options. Thoughts?




























































































Oh, and I'll need these shoes to go with either a pink or navy option. SO cute!

if you're whole wardrode is black, and you're enjoying the new-found figure, grab the pink or apricot and show it off! plus they're perfect for a baby shower. the floral shoes would match either of them :) i personally find the apricot more exciting, but each to their own. enjoy!

I love the very first one and the last one. I have a top in the color of the last dress and it is so flattering. It is a unique color you can get away with wearing often too, always a plus!

I have the 5th dress that you posted (J.Crew Sidney) and I love it, it's very flattering. Go ahead and order it for yourself, everyone needs some color in their wardrobe.

Omg, congrats on losing so much weight!! I am loving the navy one with the fun ruffle collar as well as the last one - the melon one!!

Sometimes you just need a new dress (or shoes) to put a kick in your step! :)

First of all, congrats on the significant weight loss. That is amazing and I would say that several new dresses are in order :) I love all of the selections in this post (esp. the 2nd and 4th ones). The navy shoes are really cute too!

I love the 3rd dress! Navy is turning into one of my fave colors, and is such a nice change from the black.

Happy summer dress shopping!

You have more than earned the new dress! Go out and indulge on the dresses and shoes too! I am so proud of you for losing 47 pounds, and you should show off your new body with a lovely new and colorful dress! :)

I love the first pink one and the navy ones are so sleek too. I also really like the first one's pattern and style. I think that you shouldn't get the navy ones if you already have a lot of black ones - go for some color!
