{Fashion Monday} Mother Dressed Me 

Mother Dressed Me is a theme I came up with after my mother prepared some knock out outfits for me. I got so much praise from people, I figured I share at least one of those outfits on the blog and hence ‘Mother Dressed Me‘ was born.

Mum is someone who has impeccable fashion sense and she is such an inspiration. Obviously she dressed us as kids but as we grew up we stopped copying her which is a huge mistake in itself. Another awesome thing about my mother is she knows how to shop and also how to thrift. I can never seem to find anything when thrifting but she has an eye for it.

I love black dresses and not just LBD but all black dresses as they are so easy to style. Black practically goes with everything and can be worn to many functions. I wore this dress to church two Sunday’s ago and I loved how simple it is but still has maximum impact.


  • Dress – mum’s closet
  • Sandals – F&F (Tesco clothing)
  • Clutch Bag – Korean market

When I told my friends that my mother dressed me, they told me I should let her do it more often. It is not that I can’t dress myself but somehow mum just knows my body much better than I do. Every time when I visit my parents, mum has something in her closet for me. When she is out and about shopping, she somehow has her kids in mind and buys clothes for us.

I am really glad that my mother dressed me, of late I am always seeking her fashion opinion. 90% of the time she is ok with my choices but the other 10% she would give me the brutal truth. Most of us now know that just because we grown don’t mean our mummies still don’t have monopoly on tips and tricks.

Do you ever get Fashion tips from your mother or a mother figure?

    You said. My grandma still has the chick look whenever she’s out on a senior date. And she applies her tips very well for my own dresses. Neat!

    Our moms really know what looks great on us. This is a lesson I realized long ago when she was forcing me to try this dress that I hate and when I put it on it was like an epiphany, lol. I love how your mom styled you! You look so gorgeous!

    • October 25, 2016 / 5:17 am

      I know the feeling, I am skeptical when she is buying them but when I put them on it’s unbelievablely good

    So awesome, I am so not up to par with fashion but desire to be. I will have to continue to stop in to your Monday fashion posts to see what you do next!

  22. September 23, 2016 / 10:08 pm

    That’s awesome! I do have to say, I’m kinda senseless in fashion, but I’m hoping to bring back a little more style in my wardrobe this fall. I really need some new tops.

  23. September 23, 2016 / 9:02 pm

    You look amazing in that dress! I love the bag too it shows a splash of pretty color with the outfit. Your mom did an excellent job!

    My mom also seems to have better fashion sense than I do. I am just a wash and wear kind of gal. I love that purse.

    Cool that your mom has fashion. My mom is more about comfort and needs help in the fashion.

    My mom wasn’t into fashion at all. Yours certainly seem to have an eye for style and it’s awesome that she knows what looks good on you.

    My mom always has a better fashion sense and I do sad to say. I do ask her opinion on some things although we have very opposite taste. I do love that dress it’s beautiful.

    I love this outfit, and you look great I it! It is all reversed here, I no longer dress my son, and have been known to try to copy his style. He does not like that at all!

    Your mom knows you well. The dress looks great, as do the shoes and bag.

  34. September 23, 2016 / 11:01 am

    Great outfit and you look great. Whether your mom dressed you or not, you cannot go wrong with what you found and sometimes taking the advice of your elders s just what you need!

    Your mom did a great job dressing you. You can never go wrong with black. My daughters often come to me for my fashion opinion. Believe me, we love it when our daughters ask for fashion advice.

    • September 23, 2016 / 9:57 am

      Awe thanks Alli and glad to hear that. I go to her more now than before
