With the holidays approaching and special events and holiday parties looming closer and closer I was in need of a little mommy makeover. After giving birth to Carson 3 short months ago I was feeling a little Blah and not feeling like I looked amazing. I was in need of a little makeover for the holiday season so that when we attend holiday parties I would feel and look great. I heard about the special occasion dresses at David’s Bridal and decided to go browse their selection online. I was really surprised at how many really cute dresses they had available. I always thought of David’s Bridal as a store for the bride and her bridesmaids and not as a place to get a great dress for other special occasions. After looking at the great online selection I grabbed my hubby and we headed out to the store to see what I could find.
I was really pleased with the in store selection. Most of the dresses I had picked out online that I liked, I spotted in the store. The first dress I tried on was a “safe” pick that I had seen on their website. It was cute but not very out of the box for me. I wanted to be a little more daring since this is supposed to be a makeover for me. Next I tried on a couple of others that were definitely not my style. Then I tried this beauty on 🙂 I loved it! It’s the perfect little black party dress and I love how it picks up and reflects the light in the skirt. The fit was great as the higher waste hides the baby weight that I have left to lose.
The staff at David’s Bridal were very helpful. They took my dresses as I pulled them off the racks and put them in a dressing room for me until I was ready. Once I tried on the dresses they checked in on me several times to see how I was doing and what I thought of the dresses I had tried on. Once I decided on this dress they took me to find some great shoes to go with it. I love these little black heels that we found. They also have a little sparkle to them when the light hits them so they go really well with the dress. They boxed up my shoes and hung and bagged my dress for me. They went out of their way to make sure that I found everything that I needed and that I was satisfied with my selection.
My experience at David’s Bridal was a great one and I’d definitely go back again. If you are in the market for a new dress for upcoming holiday parties then check out their selection of special occasion dresses. You may find yourself pleasantly surprised as I did 🙂
The only suggestion for improvement that I have as far as my in store shopping experience went was that there were no mirrors in the dressing rooms. You had to put on your dress and walk out to look in the mirror. While I was lucky enough to be there at a time that wasn’t busy, I certainly wouldn’t want to walk out of the dressing room to check out my less flattering dresses I tried on for everyone else to see. It’s nice to have a mirror in the dressing room so not only can you make sure your all covered and zipped up before stepping outside the room, but also that you look nice enough for strangers to see you. Other than this my experience was great!
Buy It! You can buy this little black party dress and many other special occasion dresses at David’s Bridal. They are available both online and in store and they have tons of affordable options! My dress was priced at $129 and the shoes were $50.
So what do you think of my mommy makeover? Do you like the dress?
