This is the first Friday night we are home for a while. So I decided that it is time for a date night. Today’s temperature was about 98 degrees with a heat index of 105…hot, hot, hot. What better way to start the weekend but with a sexy cold shoulder dress for date night. This Chico’s cold shoulder dress has become one of my favorites. The material is a polyester/spandex mix which allows it to slightly hug the body, showing off curves. Can you say “sexy mama”? I like to wear a Spanx type brand of shapewear called, Commando under my dress. Not as tight-fitting as Spanx but still gets the job done.
Unfortunately, this dress was last season (I bought it in both black and royal blue). Lucky for you, cold shoulder maxi dresses are hot this year too, and you can find many similar styles.

You can also get these on Commando Women’s Classic Control Shorts on Amazon.
I added my favorite turquoise necklace called Drop of the Ocean from Silpada. This necklace was a thank you gift from my tennis friends after I hosted a girls tennis beach weekend. Silpada was bought out last year, but I saw this necklace on sale at Amazon, sold by Silpada with Prime delivery. If you like it, grab it while you can. Last night chatting with my girlfriends at the club, we were talking about how we gravitate to certain accessories that have memories attached. This is one of those pieces. The earrings are one of my “on sale” finds at Dillard’s. Totally loving the tassel earring look. I bought these in black too. Seeing the tassel look everywhere.
These earrings come in many colors. I own the turquoise and black.

The Wedge Heel Shoes
Finally my shoes! I got to admit, I am becoming somewhat of a shoe whore and blaming my friends for that. My friends have the BEST taste in shoes and find some of the cutest. Constantly coveting their shoe purchases. My problem is that my feet hurt. I had plantar fasciitis after my trip to Italy a couple of years back and I am just now recovering. To my great surprise, these shoes by OTBT do not hurt my feet. They are actually very comfortable. The wedge platform style gives support to my feet and ankles. Platform style gives me height, at 5’1 I can use all I can get. I have added several OTBT shoes to my wardrobe this year.
I bought mine from Zappos! Love Zappos great customer service, free shipping, free returns, and 2-day business delivery when you become a VIP member. Amazon also sells them. Here is the link to Amazon
I can’t say enough about the cold shoulder look. For someone like me who is pear shape ( larger hips, smaller waist, and bust), this look takes a pear and makes it into a sexy hourglass shape. It does this by emphasizing the shoulders. Have sexy shoulders, flaunt it. Longer sleeves help hide an arm area we may not want to show off. In the end, all I know is my husband thought I looked great and complimented me all evening….. WINNING!!!! Glad to see that the cold shoulder look is going nowhere soon.
