Vote & Win a Fresh Produce Maxi Dress

I need your help yet again! Vote on which Fresh Produce Dress Maxi dress you think I should wear on Talk of the Town on August 2nd and you’ll have a chance to win one for yourself!

You guys did such a great job helping me choose my fabulous dress last month that I know you’ll do equally as well this month, since I have two beautiful Fresh Produce dresses to choose from.

I know I typically give you pictures of me modeling the dresses with pretty leaves and such in the background, but not this month. I couldn’t wait to wear these colorful dresses, so I’ve got some fun pictures from this week where I got to celebrate two great events: my best friend coming to visit me in Nashville for the first time and my daughter’s 7th birthday!

Your first choice is the Malibu Maxi Dress in Sunrise. I LOVE this dress for its fit, feel and color. Perhaps you remember my original Malibu Maxi from my March trip to Disney World and I love it even more in this color. I’ve definitely come to find the Malibu Maxi as my ‘go-to’ dress: I’ve worn it for everything from plane travel and grocery shopping to commercial auditions and date nights…and it’s been equally fabulous in all situations! Below you’ll see it in the picture with my best friend and former roommate just after picking her up from the airport (and she’s wearing the equally fun and summery Bali Cafe Wrap Dress in Thistle!)

Now I know I’ve just pledged my love to the Malibu Maxi, but don’t let that sway you until you’ve checked out the Soleil Dress in Thistle. This is also a great maxi dress that is flattering, feminine and totally timeless. It’s got a super-cute neckline and of course you know I’m loving the purple for the summer (who am I kidding…I love purple all the time!).

As soon as I got it, I knew it would be the perfect dress for my daughter’s “Tangled” themed 7th birthday party! Not only did it totally fit the purplish/pinkish/lavender color scheme, but it was comfortable enough to run around and finish last minute details in while still looking cute for all the pictures at the end of the party :)

The Soleil Dress in Thistle - party perfect!

And I know this picture doesn’t show the dress as well, but I just had to show one more super cute pic of our family from the party:

So have at it! Let me know which dress you think I should wear on-air on live tv! My next Talk of the Town appearance will be on Tuesday, August 2nd at 11am on NewsChannel5 here in Nashville. You’ll want to be sure to tune in, not only to see which dress I wear, but to find out all the latest Back to School Bargains so you can send your kids to school for less!
