Thank you to Misses Dressy for sponsoring this post. The honest opinions are my own.

As a stay-at-home mom you can usually find me in jeans and a sweatshirt this time of year. It just doesn’t make sense for me to get dressed up as if I was going to the office when I spend most of the day on the computer or cleaning the house. This makes me all the more excited for special occasions that call for a fancy dress.

That’s why I was excited to learn about Misses Dressy. It’s a fantastic site that offers A-List evening dresses by top designers.

Misses Dressy La FemmeI was impressed to see that many of their dresses ship the same day. This is great because evening dress shopping comes with a deadline and it’s important to make sure the fit is right before the big night.

I remember the last time I went out shopping for an evening dress. It was a few years ago for a fundraising auction event. I was excited to get dressed up and out of the house for the evening. I wanted to find a dress that made me feel beautiful. After visiting one store after another I finally found the one. It was a deep purple and perfect. I loved how it allowed me to wear my favorite colorful necklace and was happy to see it played off the purple in the dress. It was a great night and lots of fun and I still have that dress and hope to wear it again some day soon.

My favorite evening shopping dress excursion however was for my senior prom. I didn’t go to my junior prom because I had a volleyball tournament so I was very excited to go when I was a senior. My mom and I shopped around for ages. I didn’t know what I wanted but as soon as I saw the black velvet dress with a big royal blue puff on the shoulder (it was the early 90’s!) I was in love. It was such a beautiful and gorgeous dress that it made for a fun and memorable evening.

Shopping for evening dresses can be very exciting and now that I’ve taken these trips down memory lane, I feel the need to get out of my jeans and sweatshirt and find a reason to put on something shiny and sparkly!
