Sorry for the lack of a post last week. I was cheering on my daughter's High School Dance Team in Orlando. They did great. All of the hard work they had put in for months really paid off and I was so glad I was there to see them perform. See the picture below.

But back to regular programming. The cocktail dress. With a few events coming up I was on the hunt. I found the most "Likely" cocktail dress. I love this brand. It is a great price point i.e. can buy more than one. The line has beautiful jewel tones and great lines. It comes to your knees and for those of us that are older that is a flattering length.

But a few thoughts. First it is mid weave stretch which means it is going to hold everything in but also means it may show lumps and bumps. Spanx is your friend. Second, you may need to go up a size. Don't get caught up in that; I've just found with a strong fabric sometimes it makes me feel better to size up.

I love this Hot pink Likely dress with the halter top or this strapless style in Navy or this one shoulder style in Raspberry . Here is another idea, you can totally take this from work to night. Wear a blazer during the day and simply remove and change your heels from a pump to a strappy sandal. This is a great multi purpose dress. Plus this would be a great Easter dress.
