People need to stop trying to keep up appearances-perfect marriage, perfect family blah blah blah. Everyone knows the truth so just stop. Your poor daughters probably feel so much pressure to keep the facade going they're exhausted.
Luck Be a Lady Dress in Scholar, This dress is my ABSOLUTE favorite that ModCloth has right now. I like it in violet, but this version would work great for work, casually, and at parties. It's beautiful and fun.
