Cents of Style Dress Review and SALE!

Friends, I’ve been searching for the perfect dress for my son’s outdoor wedding next month. The venue is a beautiful, built-for-weddings barn and meadow. The standard mother-of-the-groom dress is not what I’m looking for; I’m aiming for something comfortable, airy, playful. On my hunt, I came across a dress that caught my attention.

The kind folks at Cents of Style generously provided me with that dress in exchange for a test drive and sharing my results with readers. How cool is that?!?

I should tell you, I didn’t have high hopes. About 98% of what I tried on in brick and mortar shops looked fantastic on the hanger, but much less so on me. I have a tough time finding a dress that fits my uniquely proportioned physique. When this little number arrived, though, I thought only positive thoughts as I removed it from the neatly tissued packaging.

Almost every dress I tried prior was fitted, constricting, too short for my generous legs’ liking…I was not having much luck. The moment I slipped into this Shelly Lattice Back Dress, I knew it was a keeper! Remember I said I wanted comfortable, airy, playful? Well this was all of that! The polyester/spandex content, a super-soft fabric, is comfier than my jammies! Its cut is generous and drapes in all the right places…so much better than the fitted straightjackets!

Keep in mind, I’m no model, so I will provide some additional pics from Cents of Style to give a better idea of what it looks like in a moment. But first…a little visit to the park with my soon-to-be-married son. He was such a great sport in capturing what this dress does for me.

I was in my element…I LOVE the outdoors, but I don’t often (well never, really) wear a dress outside. But because I didn’t feel trapped within this garment, I could be myself…I could let my light shine!

I mean, I don’t often visit a park without relaxing…

I didn’t realize just how at home I felt until I found myself doing what I do…soaking in the good vibes of nature!

And do you know how comfortable I was? Well, this is the first dress I’ve ever been tempted to climb a tree while wearing. It made me reminisce about the relaxed fit of play clothes from my childhood.

Not even kidding…I was right up there in that tree. In a dress. A dress that allowed me to be totally and completely ME!

If I’m this comfy here, I’m excited about how great it will feel to wear this versatile dress to work, play, church, parties, picnics, the beach, etc. As for the wedding, I can’t yet be certain I’ve said yes to the dress, but this could be it!

As promised, a few professional shots provided by Cents of Style. Check out the fun shape and colors…


Comfortable, airy, playful…Cents of Style nailed it and they want you to experience that feeling too! Friends, here’s the good news…this dress retails for $54.95.

Fashion Friday (Saturday) Story

I apologize for the late nature of this post, Friends, but I just returned from a recharge in Portland this afternoon and couldn’t wait to open a package that awaited my return. Cents of Style has done it again; they’ve provided me with the choice of one of their best-selling products…their Be Series graphic t-shirts.

I had zero difficulty choosing the right tee for me! Readers, if you’ve been following me for a while, you know since my weight loss transformation began, there is nothing more I’ve wanted out of life than this…

It is my life’s goal to be happy, so this shirt literally fits me to a T…there is nothing I’d rather be! Happiness is the result of slowing down to appreciate the simple pleasures like treasured time with family and friends, a rejuvenating walk in the woods, taking time to do what’s calling within my heart.

Yes, this tee is who I want to be, but you might want to be something else, and Cents of Style has you covered too! How about one of these…


Friends, Cents of Style has made it comfortable and fun to be exactly who you are. This weekend only, using the code BESTORY, you can get each of these fresh, fun t-shirts here for only $15.95 with Free Shipping!

While you’re there, take a look around at their wide array of the latest in trendy clothes, shoes, scarves and jewelry, all at affordable prices.

I especially love this store for its mission: To empower women to lead bold and full lives. We believe that if you look good, you feel good. And when you feel good you can do good for others around you.

I LOVE that!

I hope you take advantage of this sweet opportunity to be uniquely you. But remember, this Fashion Friday deal is only available thru 4/30, so don’t miss out and don’t forget Mother’s Day is coming up too!

Fashion Friday

Happy Fashion Friday, Friends, I’m excited to share my latest dicovery with you! Since my weight loss transformation, I’ve struggled to find comfortable, versatile clothing I feel confident wearing. I’m just now beginning to enjoy shopping again, but was still having difficulty finding a flattering fit. That all changed when Cents of Style sent me this Hannah Keyhole Tunic to test drive and share with all of you.

How cute is that?!?

This tunic has versatility written all over it! I’ve only had it a week, but in that time it has stylishly taken me from church, to the grocery store, between classes and workouts at the gym and even through an online interview.

All the while, I enjoyed the sleek fit of its super-soft rayon/spandex blend and its pajama-like comfort. I am kind of in love with it!

I went with black because it coordinates so well with everything! But these tunics are available in an array of delectable colors…

And if the keyhole design is not your thing, check out this sassy babydoll style.

It also comes in an exquisite palate of color choices.

Both tunic styles are two of this spring’s hottest trends and are available to fit sizes 0-18…that’s great news!

But Friends, the best news is this…Cents of Style normally offers these tunics for a modest $34.95 but are offering them this weekend for the fantastic price of $19.95 + FREE SHIPPING using the code: TOPSTORY when you shop here.

While you’re there, take a look around at their wide array of the latest in trendy clothes, shoes, scarves and jewelry, all at affordable prices.

I especially love this store for its mission: To empower women to lead bold and full lives. We believe that if you look good, you feel good. And when you feel good you can do good for others around you.


I hope you take advantage of such a sweet opportunity, but remember, this Fashion Friday deal is only available thru 3/26. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some shopping to do!
