Today I’m starting a new feature called “Spotlight on You!” which will highlight my lovely readers! A few days ago, I received an email from Selah with a picture of her wearing her first maxi dress. I had replied to one her comments that I wanted to see when she finally wore a maxi dress and she remembered! Selah’s willingness to move outside of her comfort zone and embrace herself inspired me to start “Spotlight on You”. So with no further ado, here is Selah!
“I was unsure of the maxi dress. Long dresses seem so formal, probably because the last time I wore a long dress was at my wedding. Then I read somewhere (on a fashion blog, I’m sure) that maxi dresses are great because they’re cool enough for summer and you don’t have to shave your legs. SOLD!I hunted for a long time for the perfect maxi dress. I stumbled across this one on the clearance rack at Target. It’s a Liz Lange Maternity, but I loved the color and the crisscross diamond design, so I tried it on. It fit perfectly except for the length. I fixed that by cutting 3-1/2” off the bottom. The knit fabric doesn’t fray so I just left it raw.When I wore it my little boy said, “Mom, you look as beautiful as a queen,” and kissed my hand. You have to love a dress that gets that kind of reaction!”
Selah you look wonderful and your son is such a sweetie! Thank you sharing this with me and allowing me to share it with readers. If you would like to be featured in “Spotlight on You”, please send a picture and a blurb explaining why you decided to try something new to firstname.lastname@example.org.
