Alloy Apparel is having a CRAZY sale right now (4 HOURS LEFT AT THIS PUBLISHING): all of their sale items are just $10 when you use the coupon code SUPERSALE. At first I thought it may only apply to one item, but I put several items in my cart and tried it, and it worked for all of them! And it’s not just bottom of the barrel stuff – some gorgeous dresses are on sale too! Look at these two $69.99 lace dresses that I got for $10 each:
Everything is first-come, first-serve and the good stuff is going to sell-out FAST, so get over there quickly and snap up some gorgeous stuff for yourself. Enjoy!
I’m crazy excited to announce a new giveaway today from the lovely folks at Pink Blush and Pink Blush Maternity! Absolutely gorgeous dresses, gowns,and clothing that you HAVE to check out! Before I get to the giveaway, I have to do a review of the lovely dresses that they sent me. After that, I’ll tell you how you can get your hot little hands on this gift certificate and win $75 worth of amazing Pink Blush clothing of your own!
Pink Blush offers both a regular and maternity clothing line. Truth be told, I often look at maternity pieces because of my poochy belly. As a post-op gastric bypass patient who has never had any reconstructive surgery, a lot of my extra weight is in my midsection. I tend to be drawn to empire-waist styles, and so sometimes maternity-styles are a really good fit for me as long as they don’t really accentuate the belly area and drape more like an empire waist. Pink Blush has a really great selection of just that type of style for me, so I had a HUGE selection to look from: both their regular and maternity line. I was like a kid in a candy store on their website!
The first gown I selected to review was the absolutely GORGEOUS “Red Lace Accent Chiffon Evening Gown.” I cannot tell you how many compliments I got on this gown! I wore this to one of my performances that was outdoors on a breezy night, and it just draped and moved so beautifully in the wind:
The next dress I reviewed was a more casual one, but I’m already LIVING IN IT. It’s so unbelievably comfortable, I never want to take it off! It’s the “Olive Sleeveless Pocket Maxi Dress” and if this came in a hundred colors, I’d buy every single one of them!
First, the fabric is SUPER-SOFT. Next, I’m in LOVE with the pockets. I just think that such a small detail makes such a HUGE difference in the look of this dress, and the same with the small slits on the side of the dress. It’s uber-comfortable, and for such a casual dress, it looks so chic’ and trendy. I’m seriously in love with this one:

I’m actually going to post a video review tomorrow (Wednesday) so that you can see what they look like (the inserts, people, the inserts!) and why I love them so much. I’m seriously a HUGE fan of this company and I think you will be too!

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR WINNER:
One of my absolute favorite dress makers/companies is Cherry Velvet Plus. They sent me a beautiful Natalie Dress to review a while back and I completely fell in love (My review photo below. Sadly, I can no longer fit into it. It’s a size L and I have gained weight since then. Boo hoo! But the dress is on sale on the site!)
The Natalie Dress is one of the most flattering retro cuts I’ve ever come across and perfect for an apple shape like mine, and owner Diane Kennedy is such a craftswoman. These are some of the most comfortable, well-made dresses I’ve ever come across. Do NOT miss out on this sale, gals! 50% off PLUS free shipping if you spend over $100! Click on the graphic to be brought to the sale:
Here’s me back in the day when I could fit into that dress (I’ll get back in it again, I swear!)
