Me Too...

There is so much to be said on this subject, and speaking from experience, simply being able to hear other people's stories can have a huge impact on healing. So, yes, just the fact that women are speaking out, will in itself help other victims. So for this post, I am simply sharing my own stories. And of course the specific point of #metoo is to shed light on the magnitude of the problem. I don't know what the solution is, but I do hope that this helps in some small way, if only to help some of my readers to feel as if they're not alone, and that healing is possible.

Have you ever been sexually harassed or assaulted? Me too...

With the phrase "grab them by the pussy" reverberating since the presidential election (unfortunately) and new and disgusting details of the Weinstein scandal surfacing by the day, it is hard to keep anxieties at bay.

The Best End of Summer Dress Sales


Now is the perfect time to pick out a dress for homecoming or to find an affordable bridesmaid gown. Sites like Aisle Style are having end of summer sales with great deals on cocktail dresses, formal gowns, and prom dresses. Pictured: Strapless Sweetheart Pleated Chiffon Knee-Length Dress
 

I've suggested several times before on the blog, and personally went this route when I needed to purchase a bridesmaid dress, that a perfect way to save money on a gown is to try on dresses in a store to see which type you and the bride like best and which kind looks best on your figure and then find something similar online. This will help you get the look you want for less than half what you would pay in a boutique or bridal shop. If the bridesmaid dresses are in a universal color, like navy or classic red, you won't have to worry about color matching. Another option would be for the bride to have all of the bridesmaids pick from the same website to make sure the colors match properly. Pictured: Lilac Lace Bodice Chiffon Bridesmaid Gown


If you're concerned about sale items not being on trend, take a quick look at the new fall collections, or simply go with a classic piece. There are quite a few pieces from these prom dresses 2016 that will still be on trend both this fall and well into 2017. The two-piece gowns, for example, have been very trendy the last few years and will continue to be on trend for years to come. Pictured: Two-Piece Beaded Bodice with Tulle Skirt

 

Short prom dresses are perfect for other occasions as well, like a special night out or a holiday cocktail party. Personally I'd love to get something like the dress pictured above for the next time my fiance takes me on a fancy date to see the ballet. Pictured: Sleeveless V-Neck Lace and Chiffon Mini Dress
