Prom Dresses that don’t suck.

PROM

I know it’s hard to believe it but springtime and Prom Season are both approaching quickly and I’m sure you young ladies and mommas all know how a typical dress shopping trip goes. If ya wait until the very last minute-

1. You’re gonna end up going home empty handed

2. You’re going to end up with a dress that is way too big or way too small.

3. You’re going to show up in the same dress as another girl..the horror!!

Or even worse..

4. You’re going to end up with a hideously ugly dress!

This is one of the looks that I dub, “Fairy Tale Chic”. I am absolutely obsessed with the flow-y, graceful, blush pink skirt and the color is just one hundred percent perfection! I think this look would be fabulous on a girl with fair or light skin like the model pictured. Gorgeousness!!

The beautiful sweetheart neckline of this gown and the satin-y finish of the elegant fabric made it easy to choose my second “Fairy Tale Chic” dress choice. The ruffle beading and the taffeta/tulle combination make this dress perfect for any prom princess!

This flow-y, one shoulder, chiffon, grecian number screams elegance. The gorgeous beaded belt, the ruffling, and the playful slit in the leg draw your attention to all the right places. This is one of those awesome universal dresses that would be flattering on any figure and skin tone.

My second Greek inspired choice is this luxurious, gorgeous, chiffon gown. With the sweetheart neck line and sweep train on this dress you could wear it for several different occasions. I adore the beautifully subtle beading on the waist!

Effortless Comfy Style

Do any of you remember Delia’s catalogs? I used to loooooove me some Delia’s catalogs!! I waited with anticipation every month for the new ones to come to my mailbox, filled with tons of cute tops, swimsuits, and accessories! I don’t know what made me think of it today, but I decided to do a google search and I was so stoked to see that Delia’s is still alive and well and their stuff is just as cute as it was the last time I ordered! Eeeeeek!

Here are some of my favorite finds-

Hot Party Dresses for 2014!

zzzzzzzzzzzzz

I can barely believe it but 2014 is right around the corner and like most fashion obsessed girly girls, I HAVE to have me some cute, frilly, beautiful, party dresses for the new year! There are so many gorgeous looks that are on trend for the coming months and I am absolutely 100% infatuated with all of them! The chic, retro style cocktail dresses from my childhood memories are making their way back on the fashion scene, as well as pretty tea length skirts and dresses. Embroidery, beading, feathers, and detailing are also must haves for 2014, or for any year, if you ask me! The sexy sweetheart neckline is blazing a fiery trail all it’s own this year! These classic, staple looks always hold a huge place in my heart..and my closet! Here are some of my all-time favorite party looks for the new year! Make some space in your closet!!

Sheath strapless short/mini satin cocktail dress with ruffle lace flower(s)

I love the way this lustrous fabric hugs the curves and the placement of the pearl colored lace is spot on! The length of this dress is just perfect and the color makes this dress amplify that crisp, classic look.

Sheath sweetheart short/mini chiffon lace cocktail dress

We all need a sexy little black dress right? The sweetheart neckline is one of my favorites, it is so flattering for every size and shape. The lace detailing on these cap sleeves gives this dress a va-va-voom! quality that I just love and the back is absolutely stunning.

Sheath one-shoulder short/mini tulle cocktail dress with ruffle

So since I already chose a classic look and also a sexy one, I wanted to find something that was a little more fun and flirty. I think this dress embodies the dainty feminine, girl next door, look. The one shoulder look shows your fun side but the tulle keeps it from being too much. This look would be great for a work party!

A-line/princess sweetheart short/mini charmeuse sequined cocktail dress with feather

This is my femme fatale, “you get it girl!”, look. This is one of those key dresses that says, “I OWN this room!” The sweetheart neckline says sexy and the feathered details say fun, the perfect combination. EVERY girl needs a dress like this. You can’t be sad, mad, or upset in any way when you are wearing feathers!

Sheath scoop neck knee length charmeuse cocktail dress with embroidered sash

This is my “upscale dinner/high class business meeting” look. The black floral details make this dress luxurious, sophisticated, and just simply charming. The length is perfect and the sash is absolute perfection.

Sheath sweetheart knee length taffeta cocktail dress with ruffle beading sequins

This is, for sure, my top choice for a fabulous, New Year’s dress. The sequins scream luxury while the sweetheart neckline shows off your sexy side. This is one of those dresses that every girl is jealous of.

And last but not least, ya always need a pop of color! This gorgeous party dress is the perfect look for any party occasion. You could dress it up or down with your choice of a cardigan, jewelry, and shoes.

CLOSET CLEAN-OUT!

woman_shoe_silhouette_3

Heeeeey guys! As promised I finally did the big closet clean-out so I wanted to share with ya’ll!

First off, I apologize for my horrible pictures. I can’t replace my good camera until January so this grainy, fuzzy, cell phone quality is unfortunately what i’m stuck with for now. I thought about just putting this blog off until I can take better shots but I reeeeeeally needed to whip my closet into shape so I’ll just replace these crappy pics later. Anywho, please bear with me, peeps!

I’m not really big on color organization. I feel like it already takes me long enough to wash, dry, and fold my clothes so I prefer to just organize everything by type, ex. long sleeve shirts together, short sleeve, hoodies, dresses, tanks, and so on. I also find that it is much less stressful if you only have your seasonal clothes in rotation. I keep all of my winter stuff put away in the summer and my summer stuff put away in the winter. If I don’t, somehow everything ends up in my laundry pile whether I wore it or not!

Image

*Tip- Keep your accessories in, or close to your closet for easy access. I tend to make less of a mess this way. You can use boxes, baskets, hooks, bins, or clothes hangers like I did.

Ollie the snuggle puggle is all about some camera time! He really wanted to help me out but he  just ended up laying in all of my shoes :)

My closet is definitely one of my happy places so the little heart banner I made seemed fitting to show my clothes a little love. (Tutorial here)

Happy Cleaning!

A NEW ADDITION TO Rockin Mom’s World!

AHHHH I just love new stuffs!!

I’m so flippin’ excited to jump into the next chapter of my little adventure!! I’ve been playing with an idea for the past couple of weeks but I needed an outside opinion from my peeps so today I asked my amazing social media followers what they thought about the possibility of me adding a new girly, fashion type section to the website. Most of you are women and if you’re anything like me you are into clothes, hair, nails, and all that jazz. Those of you who aren’t that way, I’ve been in your shoes too! Here lately I have been riding the yoga/pj pants train pretty much on the daily and I am tryin’ like hell to jump off so this will be good for me! Plus things have been pretty heavy in my life lately and I really need an escape so I am more than excited to take this new adventure on.

woman-07

We can do this together! Sometimes all we need is a little style motivation! I want to try new things and get out of my comfort zone and I want all you hot mommas to join me! Tomorrow is closet clean out day!!

P.S. I also have plans to add a section where you guys can send in pics of your favorite closet treasures! Eeeeeeek! So excited!
