Mama Says

la model, michelle mason dress, prada sunglasses, jimmy choo sandals, cutout dress, style blog, fashion bloggerGrowing up, my mother always warned us that, unless we wanted to look like loose girls, we needed to leave some things up to the imagination.  Translation: you can either show legs or cleavage, but not both.  Not that I’ve ever had much to show off, but let’s just say that I looked like a loose girl on and off throughout college.  Sorry, Mom.  Well, along with a few other pearls of wisdom, I finally began taking that piece of advice to heart.  That being said, it doesn’t mean that I don’t want to flaunt a little something something every now and again.  I don’t know what category this dress falls under; my mom did not give a rule on how much hip one can show.  (Although, ask her and I lay money she will give you one.)  But, long story short, I feel like this dress let’s me show a little skin without looking “loose.”  And, hopefully, that will make my mama proud.

P.S.  Full disclosure: this dress stopped traffic multiple times during the shoot.  Clearly, you no longer have to go short or low-cut to turn heads.  I may be on to something; perhaps the hip is the new cleavage.

  1. “The hip is the new cleavage.” That’s what I’m talking about girl. Your writing is awesome. So fun and entertaining. And, yes, damn girl, I can see why you stop traffic!
