AND THE WINNER IS:
Spring is fast approaching, and we know what that means: the dresses are coming back out and The Dress Addict will be back in full swing! For me, that also means that my favorite shapewear pieces are a staple part of my wardrobe as well. I was really excited to find out about Classic Shapewear, and decided to test out to new bodysuits of my own. I got these lovely shapers from their collection:
The bodyshaper on the left (black) is the Fantasie Echo Lace Underwire Body with Molded Cups. I chose this one more for the “sexy” appeal, and my husband gave it two thumbs up: he thought it was really gorgeous. I sacrificed a little bit of control for the sexy, but it’s still enough for any dress that isn’t body hugging (I’d say control is somewhere just before “medium” – more firm on top and the upper abdomen, but a little looser on the lower abdomen, which is partially my fault for ordering a bit too large). Still, I’ll wear this often because it does provide enough support for me AND it’s gorgeous!
The shaper on the right (nude) is the Miraclesuit Sexy Sheer Shaping Bodybriefer. I knew based on the brand alone that this would be a winner, and it did not disappoint! This suit provider firm control and I love, love, love it! Miraclesuit makes such quality products, and Classic Shapewear carries the brand at really affordable and competitive prices. This shaper is worth every penny. It provides a ton of support, but doesn’t cut into my skin or create any unwanted rolls or ripples anywhere. It’s AWESOME.
What’s even better is that for this week while the contest is running, Classic Shapewear is offering a 15% discount to all my ladies out there using the coupon code DRESSADDICT. Stock up now, sistahs! www.classicshapewear.com.

Here’s the thing: I love makeup. Like most women I know, I’m always on the lookout for new products and I’m easily seduced by new makeup products. As I get a bit older (just turned 43 – how did that happen?!) and wiser, I have come to realize that makeup is fun, addictive, artistic even – but it’s not true beauty.
I cannot tell you how many times my husband has told me that I don’t need any makeup and I’m beautiful the way I am. BUT, it’s only been recently that I’ve come to realize that my face IS beautiful. The lines I see now, they show how much I’ve laughed in this life. Sometimes when I look in the mirror, I can see my mother in my reflection (a woman who was always beautiful with barely a trace of makeup on) and I want to freeze frame that moment when I see her staring back at me. The lines and wrinkles that I have now? They’re well-earned, and they are beautiful.
Sure, I love makeup but I love my face – plain and simple too. And out of nowhere, I thought it would be great to have a hashtag that celebrated our natural beauty. So I’ve decided to create #wipeitoffwednesday. And of course, I’m going to offer a prize for those of you who want to celebrate with me! I’ll start by posting my photo:
Do I have dark circles under my eyes? Sure, yep. Do my eyebrows need some help? You bet they do. But do I look at this picture and see a 43 year old woman? Actually, no. I see a smile with nice straight teeth that never needed braces. I see my funky left half-brown / half-hazel eye. And most importantly, I see my mom. I see her in my face without all the makeup I usually wear, and she’s beautiful and I love her. So my bare, naked face – wiped off of my usual makeup routine, it’s pretty good for a middle-aged gal. So, how about yours?
To kick this off, I’m going to offer a couple prizes of guess what? MAKEUP. Yep, I know. lol But you know what? I’m not saying never wear makeup – never! I love it! I’m just saying love the gorgeous canvas you get to work with. :)
So here’s what you can win:
This prize comes with the following BRAND NEW awesomeness:
❥ Gorgeous Clinique Floral Makeup Bag
❥ Clinique Chubby Lip Stick in 07 Super Strawberry
❥ Clinique High Impact Mascara Mini
❥ Ulta Complete Eye 4 Eyeshadows 1 Powder Line Compact in “Classical” (Browns/Neutrals)
❥ Ulta Splendor Bronzer & Blush Compact

❥ Ulta Nail Polish Mini in Peach Parfait
❥ Ulta Eyeshadow Quad in Sunrise / Sage/ Khaki / Copper Bronze

Ok, I am ridiculously excited about this giveaway! I was just recently introduced to the Heidi Daus Jewelry Design line and I am IN.LOVE. Like capital letters in love. I should start by saying I’m not a huge jewelery person. I mean, I love it, but I don’t really wear a lot of it. I wear my wedding ring, and usually some hoop earrings and that’s it. Jewelry is kind of like shoes to me: I admire a lot of it, collect a lot of pieces, but don’t tend to wear a lot of what I’ve got. But these Heidi Daus Design pieces have completely changed me. I want to wear every piece she’s ever made and wear them everywhere: the grocery store, the library, the gym (if I went to one). They’re just gorgeous. Here are the pieces that I got:
These are the St. Barts Rocks earrings, pretty close to true size, and absolutely GORGEOUS. A horseshoe-shaped station at the post is lined with channel-set, square-cut crystals and leads to a bezel-set, large pear-shaped Swarovski crystal drop with decorative, bezel-set round crystal prongs. They are even more stunning in person.This is the matching St. Barts Rocks Necklace, and I am absolutely IN LOVE with this. A single strand of individually knotted, faceted mother-of-pearl beads leads to V-shaped drop and a horseshoe-shaped station with bezel-set, large pear-shaped Swarovski crystal drop completes this elegant necklace. I wish my camera took a better picture of this. It truly is stunning.
And here’s a bit about Heidi Daus Designs from the company itself:
The Heidi Daus jewelry collection embodies superior design, style and color. Since 1981 the masterpieces of Heidi Daus have set precedence for the jewelry industry and pioneered the concept of statement jewelry. Heidi was exposed to fashion at a young age and realized her gift early on. Educated and raised in New York City where the first Heidi Daus studio was born Heidi traveled the world and brought back her inspirations from the fashion capitals and incorporated the finest jewelry making techniques into her work. Heidi’s love of fine art, nature, and home décor is reflected in her designs. Each piece encompasses unique artistry and features gorgeous color ways, geometric art deco influences and sculpted intricate attention to detail. Elegance, Sophistication and Confidence defines the Heidi Daus woman. It’s a sisterhood of sorts that is sure to create a special bond when a fan spots a Heidi Daus piece in a crowd.
As part of the ongoing holiday promotion, Heidi Daus Designs has very generously offered a $100 Online Gift Certificate so that you can get a gorgeous piece of your very own! By now, you now the drill. :) Just click away:
