It's not often that I wear a form-fitting dress, but when I laid eyes on this one, I fell in love.  I felt a little self conscious at first, but it has surprisingly more coverage than I thought, and it is still so elegant.  Even when Shane saw me in it, he definitely approved and also promised to take me out to a nice dinner so I can wear it.  Now I have to think of a good, new restaurant to try in Memphis.  Any suggestions?  My good friend Brittany Fuson did this amazing illustration of this Maggy London dress, and it was so neat to receive both the amazing illustration and the dress from Maggy London.  The dress is called the Illusion dress, and I have no other word for it besides perfect.  Maggy London makes some of the classiest and most classic dresses I've ever seen.  They are perfect for work, weddings, dates and everything in between.  What do you think about the dress?
     
 
You have got to meet Linda from A Labour of Life.  Linda is a 50 year old fashion and lifestyle blogger who still feels like a kid at heart (although she hopes her style is more reflective of where she is today than where she was then.)  Her blog is her journey through life.  She is trying to grow old gracefully and adjust, but it is not always easy - always fun, but not easy.  She loves sharing, and she loves people being involved in her life.  Please stop by and say hello to Linda; you won't regret it!
 

I want to introduce you to Amanda who blogs over at Denim & Daydreams.  Amanda is a twenty-something event planner by day and blogger by night.  She created Denim & Daydreams to share some of the things she loves most: style, pretty things and all things fabulous!  She describes herself as slightly dramatic, always sarcastic and usually attempting to be well dressed.  I would definitely say she conquered well dressed, and I'm sure you'll agree.  = )  Make sure you stop by and say hello to Amanda!
