I am so excited! Our wedding is less than 2 weeks away now and I am ready for our week-long cruise to the Mexican Riviera! For our cruise, I’ve purchased a few dresses and shoes – so I figured I would start writing a Cruise Fashion segment on The Mommy-Files. I have 4 dresses I’m planning on wearing in the evenings on the cruise and 5 different pairs of heels (including the ones that go with my wedding dress). I love shopping for clothes and shoes now! Oh and jewelry!  This first post will feature Wedding Cruise Fashion: The Little Black Dress.

Quite some time ago, I bought a gorgeous little black dress from Jen Jen House. It was my first time ordering with them and I was really satisfied! I would definitely say in the future to order a little bigger than your actual measurements, because this dress did not give much room for forgiveness (aka I could not gain very much weight and still successfully fit this dress).

I love the way the dress accentuates my figure! The straps are a little tight on the back, but the back looks great (at least that’s what my fiancΓ© says…and I agree with him – ha ha!)!  I definitely felt like a hottie wearing this dress and will pair it with a pair of black peak-toed heels. I will wear my Helzberg Diamond earrings and my new necklace Frank bought me for Valentine’s Day from Don Roberto Jewelers. I can’t wait to wear this on our upcoming wedding cruise!

What do you think of the dress? What’s your favorite feature?
