She shouts, Style, where are you, Style? Giveaway Alert

"Where are you, Style?" 
Just like the great blog entry you are going to read over at Family Musings, I too often lose Style due to mommyhood, busyness, or plain laziness.
I look at my wardrobe and think..when did I become that dowdy mom I swore I never would be?  
Little losses to the enemy called casual comfort..literal baby steps and it's gone before you know it!
It doesn't help that when you are home all day, why would you put on the dress and the pearls?  I may love all things retro but I am not June Cleaver around here on any given Tuesday.  In fact, you better call before you stop by my house because I am probably not decent for company.  ;)  haha
I recently went to a NKOTBSB concert, and that is New Kids on the Block with Backstreet Boys. 
{I swear review is coming soon!}
I had to go shopping for a top and jewelry so I wouldn't feel like I was dressed to go grocery shopping.  I joked that it was "Ladies' Night" and I wanted to feel and look it!
2 weeks and 7 stores later, I finally had the look I wanted. 
Apparently, unless you want to spend $$$, they aren't making much for a fuller figured gals that doesn't resemble a tent or a knit least that was how it was for me over the course of my shopping week.
So here we are after the concert, tired but elated! 
 And I think looking like some pretty hot mamas, if I do say so myself.  ;)  
This is Ashley and we went to our first NKOTB concert together in 1990.  
21 years later, here we are again and having a blast!
So if you, too, are in need for a bit of spicing up, at least in the jewelry department like I was, take your shot at the awesome giveaway over at Family Musings!  
$100 for an amazing online site called
So between you and me, I hope one of us wins! 
Good Luck and thanks for reading!
