Mama Love: Little Black Dress

Last week I went to Blogher – a huge conference for bloggers that was held in New York City.  In the evenings the conference has several cocktail parties.  As a busy mom of four, I am more familiar with yoga pants than snappy dresses these days, so I panicked a little trying to figure out where I could find a couple cute, flattering, and inexpensive dresses.  Luckily for me, David’s Bridal stepped up and offered to “style” me for the conference.  Beyond the wedding gowns and bridemaids dresses they are famous for, David’s has a huge selection of cocktail dresses.  Who knew?

David’s Bridal invited me to their flagship store in Manhattan.  Before I went, I checked out their website and had a few choices in mind:

When I arrived at the store there were even more options to choose from, and I think I ended up with about 20 dresses in that dressing room!  It was a lovely experience all around – their reps were great, the dresses were adorable, and I left with two dresses I really like to wear to the parties. Here's a little footage of the process:

(I love that little silver number and think it looks very Mad Men with the vintage shape and little rosette jacket, and had to laugh when they told me it was a mother-of-the-bride dress.  I only hope I can wear something that cute when my kids are old enough to be married.)



So now, the question is: which one do I wear to the OC Blogger’s Ball next weekend?
