I'm Tonie - my hearts desire is to work with brides who are not afraid of stepping outside their comfort zone for a dance in the rain, a romp under a waterfall or a blustery day that might put wind in her hair!

Ladies! I am so excited to share this post with you! When Purpose Boutique approached me about having me try out one of their brand new signature dresses I was totally up for it! I LOVE their shop and the mission that they stand for!

Heres a bit on that from Purpose Boutique:

  • We Donate: We donate at least 10% of net proceeds to fight human trafficking and restore hope to women around the world suffering from poverty, exploitation, or barriers to participating in society with dignity.
  • We Partner: We proudly partner with empowerment lines that holistically empower and employ women with dignified work, community and opportunities for a better future for themselves and their families. Their stories inspire us as well as our customers in full- circle empowerment.
  • We Style: We provide a personalized styling service, meeting the needs of women of all shapes, styles, and backgrounds, with unique, beautiful, and price-conscious pieces. We love our customers and strive for everyone who walks in our doors to experience encouragement and fullness of life!

When the dress arrived in the mail, I unfolded it and immediately fell in LOVE with the soft and stretchy fabric and when I saw the shape of the dress I will be honest in saying I thought for sure it would NOT be flattering on me. I ran and tried it on immediately and was SO SO pleased with the fit and the color style they chose specifically for me! (you can see they have more options on colors here!)

The dress does not cling, its a really great almost heavier jersey material and the waste line was just high enough that I didn’t feel like it made me look super young while still flattering my figure! There are SO many ways you could style this dress, but I added a bit of my own “flare” which is usually black leather! haha! I also jazzed it up with some fun accessories: a necklace from JCrew and my fav felt hat from Gunny Sack and Co.

I have actually worn this dress already to shoot in as well as to my cousins baby shower and got so many compliments on it! I can’t wait to bring it out for wedding season, EVEN with my new baby bump it still fits like a dream! Hope you will check them out and let me know if you pick one of these dresses up and in what color!
