wiws-A New Dress!

What's that, you say? A new dress isn't headline-worthy? Well, then your life is much more exciting than mine!

But really...if I can't come up with a post involving a new dress then my credibility as an amateur blogger is mute.

So here's what I wore to Mass yesterday. (We only have a Saturday night vigil Mass at our parish...which is convenient in the fact that after going to Mass with my children I always need a stiff drink.)

The dress is from Ruche and I bought it on a bit of a whim because it was on mega-sale and its from Tulle which I've found to be a really well made line. Thankfully it fit! Its all wonderful cotton, and has buttons for all that pesky nursing baby stuff. It has a great collar that I wanted to pop a la Joanne Woodward, but then I'm pretty sure my husband wouldn't go out in public with me. 

And the dress has pockets! Pockets in dresses is one of life's greatest joys.

Weird hand motions. Crazy faces. I was born for the camera. 
Also; pardon my hair. I didn't wear it to Mass like this. This hair is "been to Mass, ate pizza, drank a beer, put 4 kids to bed, one kid is still awake" hair. It was getting a little dark out for this pictures even.

And we finally got little Miss Serious to laugh for the camera a bit. I don't think she's crazy about being my prop.

  1. I new dress is always worth celebrating! It's really cute and super functional with the buttons and pockets! And I say, don't worry about the hubby, pop that collar!

  2. Love the cut of that dress and the print is pretty as well!

  3. Oh my goodness that picture of the baby is adorable!

  4. Sooo pretty! I LOVE new dresses ;) You look fabulous, lady!

  5. Pockets in a dress is a wonder! When I couldn't decide between two wedding dresses, I got the one with pockets. Love the pattern!

  6. Yes, yes, yes on the pockets. I also really love it when a dress has secret contrasting lining or something. The husband totally doesn't get why that could possibly matter. But I love it. (I also usually coordinate my shoes to the secret lining, which IS perhaps going a bit too far.)

    Your dress and accessories are both lovely!

  7. Pockets definitely up the dress to 'The Best' category. Love pockets! New dresses definitely deserve the headline. Also, I am SUPER impressed with your heel wearing skills. I think I can count on one hand (well, less) the number of times I've worn heels since the last baby joined our family...

  8. New dresses are definitely headline-worthy! Especially ones with pockets! Cute dress and cute baby. :)

  9. Pockets are God's gift to dress-wearing women. They are the best. And you look great in the dress!

    Your little is so adorable. Sweet, sweet smile!
