I just saw someone wearing this dress at an alumni event, and it was that rare dress that was slightly fancy but worked well enough for a daytime event — great for a desk to dinner dress or for when you want to be slightly fancy but are still wearing your mom hat so you want to be comfortable and not overly sexy. Nordstrom has it in navy and in this lovely emerald, and it comes in regular and plus sizes for $138–$158. Vince Camuto Velvet Burnout Sheath Dress

Embroidered Lace Sheath DressSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Maybe it’s just me, but I feel like there are far too few occasions to wear fancy dresses as a mom — or at least as one on the older end of things. I’m past the wedding phase of my life (remember when you had to go to three weddings a year for various friends and family?) and don’t go to many formal charity things, and date nights all too often involve hitting up several favorite restaurants or bars in one night, so comfortable walking shoes (and appropriate attire to match) are a must. Still: This lace dress is calling my name — it seems elegant and sophisticated and versatile. Hmmmn … maybe mama needs to find a place to wear it. It’s available in sizes 2–16 for $268–$398, with a zillion color options and tons of good reviews. Embroidered Lace Sheath Dress

Looking for a more affordable option? Amazon has some lucky sizes from this brand on sale for as low as $85. As far as plus sizes, this City Chic dress, this Tahari dress, or this Karen Kane dress all look gorgeous, and as a brand, Brianna as a lot of options.
