Outfit: White Pleated Dress

Greetings Fashion Mavens,

Welcome back from the weekend....well, extended weekend. I hope everyone enjoyed their Labor Day! I had so much fun....whoo hoo! I have pics that I can't wait to share with you all from the events I attended at the Tom Joyner Family Reunion. It was awesome and I am ashamed to say that it occurs yearly in my city and this was the first time I have ever gone.....SMH. Anyhew, as soon as I edit the photos I will post them on the blog.

On Labor Day, I spent time with the family, per usual, and I must say that the rest of the week will be prison style food portions for me because I was such a fattie! Good grief. I'm so glad I don't live back home anymore. I have changed my dietary habits significantly but my people are a tad slower than me, lol. But I'm proud of them for changing as well. Maintaining good health is a priority. I don't like how I looked in this cute little white dress below but once I had it on, I was committed so you know it wasn't coming off! Every Labor Day I wear white, not to signify the end of "wearing white season", but just because the fashion experts who insist that wearing white after Labor Day is a big no no. They are so dramatic! By the way, I'm going to wear white the rest of the week as well, lol.

Bought this little number a couple of months ago. I'm getting better with closet storing.....seriously!

Simple look I know.....but I hope you don't mind because it was hot as heck!!!!

Love the gentle pleats and buttons. I should pair with a sailor's hat, blue bag and red oxfords next time I wear it, LOL.

I like the dress on you!! I love that Stacy and Clinton of What Not To Wear said that rule no longer applies!! I most definitely will be rocking white all through the Winter :)

That dress looks gorgeous on you, you definitely rocking it. You inspire us so much... We don't pay attention to the rule too, we've been shopping a lot of winter whites lately.

Love that you're still wearing white during and after Labor Day! I'm pretty much sticking to my own rule of wearing what I want! Great post!




Thank you for following my blog.
Today is my birthday, and this is a true present and an honour.

Cute dress!! I dig the minimal styling it's a dress that can carry it's own.

That dress is adorable. Good decision to keep it on.
I had a three day weekend and did absolutely nothing, but paint my toenails and loved it!
