Mary from the blog, Mourning Glory Designs, recently opened an Etsy shop (go check it out!). The moment I saw this dress from her store, I knew it was love at first sight. I imagined all the outfit possibilities and many different ways I could wear this dress and I just had to have it.
My company Christmas party was around the corner and I knew this dress would be perfect for such an occasion! Unfortunately, my son and I got sick, therefore, I had to miss out on the party but the dress shall still be worn! The only reason why I waited this long to wear it was because I wanted to look my best (ie healthy) so I could do it justice.
I wore this dress to work today. I was originally unsure whether or not it would go over well. Considering it has color and I got away with tu-tu skirts or outfits with d-rings on them, I figured this wouldn't be so bad. In fact, I got lots of compliments! I was even told that I reminded someone of a Disney princess.
I owe all the wonderful compliments to Mary who is not only an excellent seamstress but a great business woman! The dress is super well made, she was very quick at communicating with me and she shipped it out very fast! The dress came well packaged and she was so sweet for including some freebies (some skull hand hair clips and lace gloves) to along with it! Thank you for the treats, Mary!
All in all, I would definitely be ordering more items from her in the future and I highly recommend her! PS I need a better camera. It was pretty late and dark when we took these pictures. I played around with some filters in order to enhance the dress. Sorry, I got home later than anticipated and I didn't want to wait any longer to do this outfit post!
