There are a few different kinds of moms -- the baking kind (Martha Stewart), the singing kind (Maria von Trapp), and the shopping kind (Kris Kardashian).  I have the shopping kind. These mother-daughter relationships tend to be vain (albeit a lot of fun). Spa days, shopping trips, at-home fashion shows, hours spent going through Grandma's old jewelry...but what happens if the mother/daughter pair don't live in the same city anymore? What does one do without the joys of mother-daughter vanity? 

Have no fear, the VIP Dress Me App is here! From the comforts of their own computers, mothers can dress daughters to their hearts' delight in frilly, furry, frothy costumes, and if one so pleases, daughters can even purchase the selections on the VIP.Zappos.com website and wear them to the next family get-together for that euphoric feeling daughters get when they make their moms happy.

And daughters can dress their moms too! My sassy mother is quite fun to "dress" , so to introduce her to the new Dress Me app, I created an outfit for her that she can wear during the blustery Canadian winters she endures.

Daughters, dress your mom, and moms dress your daughters on the Zappos VIP Dress Me app today!

This flirty and sexy asymmetrical-shoulder dress by Jessica Simpson is a fun way to incorporate bold splashes of color and pattern.

The frilly Call it SPRING Olliff evening bag and ravishing Jessica Simpson Unbalanced Nature Reef Earrings really give this date look something to talk about.

Daytime:

A lightweight cotton-blend dress like the lovely Max and Cleo Cotton Mandy Dress is perfect for daytime. Keep things low-key with a pair of the Sam Edelman Gigi T-strap sandals; It’s a versatile choice for all your summer day looks. A simple bag in a pop color like the Nine West Pocket Change Small Hobo is a great contrast to the cool blue on the dress. Stack on some Lucky Brand Havana Caseline stack bracelets and you’ve got an impeccable day ensemble that’s easy and breezy.

Prom/Special Occasion:

Don’t be afraid to go for some drama when it comes to a dressy evening affair. The softly opulent ruffles on the BCBGMAXAZRIA Stretch Tulle One Shoulder Layer Dress give an air of ethereal glow to your evening look. A simple pair of black peep toe heels like the rsvp Nicolette is a nighttime staple. The ALDO Miccio clutch, with its fancy crystal closure, makes an equally perfect accessory. Finish off this eloquent ensemble with a bold pair of crystal-studded earrings like the Noir Jewelry Artisan Abstract Earrings.

Spring/Summer Wedding:

A flowy maxi dress like the heavenly Jessica Simpson Strapless Twisted Chiffon Maxi Dress is a perfect blend of sexy and appropriate. Pair it with the adorable Black Rooster Highpeak espadrille wedge for a comfy, laid-back alternative to satin dress shoes. A sleek, simple clutch like the Hobo International Lauren is a great versatile addition to this look. Layer on the Dogeared Jewels 100 Good Wishes Necklace and Jessica Simpson Unbalanced Nature Reef Necklace to add some extra interest to the strapless dress.
