Striving to get more people to stand up on their counter tops. One person at a time.

This is the Max Studio dress as shown online in salmon (not black). Shapeless, frumpy, and plain. OHmommy would have never purchased it online, at first glance.



This is the Max Studio dress, as seen on OHmommy, purchased at a mall that made her husband's jaw drop. OHmommy, whom is standing on top of her master bathroom island, while her toddler quietly plays with her costume jewelry on the floor, for one second thinks she looks not like a SAHM.


It is fun, flirty, and fabulously silky. And OHmommy kinda of feels like a million bucks wearing it in the middle of a snowy Tuesday afternoon, in rural Ohio, half way between a Saks and an Amish Walmart, on top of her bathroom island. Alone with a toddler. Oh, hush... that sounds completely normal.

OHmommy could have chosen something more fitted, black, and conservative as she normally does; however, there is no way, after birthing three children, that 20 years from now she could successfully pull off wearing a fantastic dress as the one mentioned above.


This message has been endorsed by the members of OHmommy's SAMIC group. (SAMIC: Shopping At Mall Is Classy was established yesterday in hopes of getting more people off their computers and into the mall and later to return back to their computers so they can post ridiculous pictures of themselves standing on top of counter tops narcississtically taking pictures of themselves in new clothes.) **Membership to SAMIC is free. Anyone with a counter top, mirror, and camera is encouraged to join. And clothes. You must have clothes. SAMIC does not endorse birthday suits.**

And standing on your bathroom counter top, who doesn't do that?! Duh..

My Trendy Tykes said...

Ooooh I like!!! (Those shoes are cute too!)

Linda

the MomBabe said...

Rawr!

Janah @ So Not Mom-a-licious said...

I love it. It (and you) looks great! And who doesn't stand in fron tof mirrors, on tables and take pictures? Right?

Domestic Extraordinaire said...

Darn, I can't join :O(

I have clothes, camera, and mirror....but no counter top near a mirror to stand on. Darn these 100 year old colonials!

TKTC said...

Loving the dress-particularly the color- but looooving those shoes!!!

haniaski said...

Just love it ! ! !

Melissa said...

I love the dress and holy cow, look at those legs. If shoes would make my legs look like that I'd be willing to pay $500 for them.

Marinka said...

Absolutely gorgeous (and the dress isn't bad, either!)

Flea said...

I needed that laugh - thank you! Clothes are definitely a must. :)

The shoes make the dress, you know. Flats would change the look entirely. You look stunning!

Chelsea said...

1) Wow, that is cute.

2) I have stood on the edge of my bathtub (across from the mirror) to take pictures of my outfits. On more than one occasion...

3) OK, what exactly is an Amish Wal-Mart?

Jessica said...

I LOVE it OHmommy! You look FAB!

Heidi said...

Jay @halftime lessons said...

Wow...precarious and stunning!

Now get down from there before you hurt yourself, Stiletto.

BTW - You looked just like Justine Bateman in the photo...can you see it?

Mr Lady said...

You gots some LEGS on you, yo.

Kj said...

okay. i concure... you look fabulous. watch out ohio! here comes one hot classy mamma hopelessly devoted to her adoring husband and three cute kids.

now, if only the island was red -- then you'd look like you were walking the red carpet at the golden globes :-)

Natalie said...

YOU ARE SMOKIN' in that dress. Holy cow, you look like a model.

I am so completely jealous of you. I had legs like that when I was sixteen and no matter how much I lose, I will NEVER have legs like that again.

Ashley said...

You were right...it looks WAY cuter on you than the other model.

Vic said...

Damn! I want your legs. I need your legs. Will trade you mine to make things fair.
I reckon you could belt it too - and get two dresses out of it!

Miss said...

Knew I wouldn't be the only one checking out your legs!

Chiloe said...

Well I gave birth to 3 children (3 C-section which is even worse than natural births because after that you can say good bye to your abs ! lol) and there is no way I could wear your dress !!!Why? Because only a skinny woman can wear this kind of dress without looking pregnant with her fourth child !!! lol By the way, you look amazing in that dress ;-) Your neighbors' jaws are going to drop too (male only, of course !!! lol)

DysFUNctional Mom said...

I want an island in my bathroom.
That dress is hawt!

Kelley said...

RAWR!

You are one hawt mumma.

*Jac* said...

You look gorgeous!!! And your bathroom looks amazing too, so jealous!

Half Gaelic, Half Garlic! said...

That dress is surely a winner.....and the shoes....LOVE them...I think they make the dress:)

I can see why your hubby's jaw hit the floor.....you look hot, hot, hot!!

What we won't do to get a picture....I have stood on a few counter tops.....and maybe a couple of bar tops too....back in the good old days:)

Have a great week!!

Lisa

♥spoiled mommy♥ said...

I love it!!
You look very HOTT Moma!

I think its a keeper!

Smart A$$ Mom said...

you are right, nothing frumpy about that! And I am dying at this:

A)Master Bathroom ISLAND?!?!?!

B)The dress and your GAMS.

I mean, comeone. How can a girl even compete with those legs. Make ya deal, I will trade my non muffin top for those legs?

Deal?

Deal!

Krystyn said...

Wowzers! Hot momma! I can see how Mr. Classy almost fell in the floor.

And, really an island in the bathroom? I don't even have one in the kitchen.

That's it. I'm moving in...or at least coming over for my picture!

(Does it count if your sister went to the mall and bought you the dress?)

Laura said...

Oh La La - love it!

Hailey said...

I've already told you... but I love it!

How super skinny are your legs?? Jealous!

brown eyed girl said...

Omg, you are hot! I want your legs!

daysgoby said...

Wow!

High Heeled Mama said...

Fabulous! First I was dropping my jaw because of the outfit and how fantastic you look in it. Then I said, "she has an island in her bathroom?!"

That's what I get for living in a 60 year old house.

Robyn said...

You couldn't look MORE fabulous if you tried! I also need to get away from the black and stop shopping at White House Black Market for all my dresses (where the color choice is severly limited!). Thanks for the inspiration.

Stephanie said...

LOL!

You look amazing! Look at those legs! Love the shoes, too!!!

momof3crazykids said...

I like your new group. YOu need to trademark it or something. I was thinking that was a counter, do you have a big mirror in your kitchen or is that your bathroom?

Kim said...

You look AMAZING!!!! (as I knew you would.. ) :)

Kelly said...

It looks 10 times better on you than on the manequin. You look great.

I would have fallen off of that island as I took my picture. LOL

Tracey said...

You are such a turkey.

I love the dress. It is VERY cute and very young and you pull it off perfectly. And I see no problems with standing on countertops while taking a picture of yourself. I do it all the time.

Kel said...

Oh I think the group is fun! Shopping is great...I have such a hard time with the clothes though, it always looks - well - not quite right. Oh well, I guess a trip to the mall is in order (if I wanna join the group) :)

Have a great day!

Courtney said...

Love your "no birthday suit" disclosure at the bottom.

You look gorgeous and classy!

Blessings From Above said...

You. Look. Fabulous.

Forget SAHM....your a MILF! :)

Don Mills Diva said...

I was totally set to join the group until I read about the nudity ban - damn!

Next time.

Stephanie said...

I LOVE this! I would never have bought it with that stock photo but it looks fabulous on you. I'm a sucker for black dresses too. Wish I could find something like that to spice things up!

Amy @ Milk Breath and Margaritas said...

It's SO cute!

A fellow Louboutin girl? Can it be true? I may be in love with you.

rachel said...

I want your legs.

That dress looks gorgeous on you babe.

Love the SAMIC

amanda said...

kim-d said...

I think that dress is beautiful; I thought so yesterday, and today's post proves it. I love the color and can see how it would work perfectly with your coloring--and, the shoes! I LOVE those shoes, and they are perfect for the dress.

OHMommy DOES NOT DO UGLY CLOTHES! Now get down off that counter; you are making the old-enough-to-be- YOUR-mother part of me very nervous! :)

Lisa said...

Hullo - you look HAWT! And I love the shoes. I think the shoes (and the pose) make the dress!!!

PS - I love your new club. If my bathroom counter was big enough for me to stand on and I wasn't almost six months prego, I might just try it!

renatamic said...

you look super duper hottttttt!!! nata likey long time! (and i can't wait to start buying normal clothes again...hopefully after i have a c-section/liposuction combo - j/k...kinda).

rn terri said...

I love it! I wonder if I could pull it off...... hmmmmmmmm.

Smoochiefrog said...

You have an island in your master bathroom?

How sad is it that's all I got from that post? :)

Like I said yesterday, it looks really great on you. Definitely not as it looks on the rack. :)

Desiree Fawn said...

Haha, this is cracking me up :D Love the dress -- you can totally pull off that colour. I'll stick to my blacks ;)

The Daily Stroll said...

Love it! You look fabulous!! So now to join I just have to figure out how to stand on my hospital vanity and take a picture without the nurses catching me! ;)

Tee aka The Diva's Thoughts said...

That dress looks fabulous on you.

Amy said...

Look at your sassy, classy self! LOVE IT!! Wish I looked good in salmon, cuz I would so be making a purchase.

LceeL said...

You ARE going to wear that in July, right?

hubba, hubba, hubba

Lindsay said...

Beautiful dress!!

anti-supermom said...

It's not like Fifi would be getting that great of a picture.

The dress is fabulous. Yea for fun shopping.

Bethany said...

CUTE dress!! Love it...love the color! I gave you an award of my blog.

Beth said...

That dress is beautiful and those shoes make the outfit!

Kat said...

That dress is so awesome!!!! You look fabulous! Woohoo!!!!!
Love it!

melissa said...

oohhh!! love it. much better on than in the pic!! love the shoes, too!! you...are so funny!! i'll totally join your little movement...only, i haven't gone shopping in a long time...due to work and being addicted to sitting at my kitchen table with the laptop. but...when i do go and buy something...other than a winter coat...i'll be sure to stand on my bed and take a picture of myself...and then, post it for the world to see...or at least, the 3 or 4 people that come and visit my blog!!
xoxo

BusyDad said...

What I said yesterday. And your club needs a manager. Just throwing it out there.

April said...

You look hot!!

the planet of janet said...

*wolf whistle*

Domestic Goddess (In Training) said...

Love, love, love it! And as for dresses... I would have to get a place to wear it first. Otherwise, I will take pictures of me standing in jeans and my uniform long sleeve t shirt.

Rhea said...

You have a bathroom island? NO way. That's awesome. I thought my bathroom was big (it is) but yours is probably bigger if you have an island in the middle.

You know I love the dress, your legs, that color, all of it!

anglophilefootballfanatic.com said...

Love it hawt mama. If I ever lose about 15 pounds I might join you.

Jo said...

What a great giggle! The dress looks fabulous, it's a keeper!

Jo

carrie said...

Loving the dress, especially the color...

But I'm way more jealous of having an island in your bathroom. I would never leave.

3 Peanuts said...

Oh Mommy---you are looking HOT! I love the dress ad might just have to order one? Where does one find such a yummy dress? Oh and the shoes~To.die.for.

Shame I cannot stand let alone walk in high heels. In that way, Oh Mommy, we are very different.

Oh an an island in your bathroom...what else do you use it for aside from this new hobby? I think I want an island in my bathroom.

Kim

Elisa said...

If I can join the club without having to post pictures of myself until I've lost 20 pounds, I'm in ;-)

Susan said...

Fabulous look! You have some terrific legs and that dress accentuates them perfectly.

kittyconcerto.com said...

You look GOOD girl! That dress looks great on you. Love the shoes too. :)

Tara R. said...

The dress does look marvelous on you! You do know how to strike a pose!

Someone Being Me said...

Damn girl you've got some legs. I am totally jealous. Since I am 6 months pregnant I won't be modeling on my countertop anytime soon but I dream of the day when I can.

Shannon said...

LOLOLOL :-) You rock. The dress rocks. It looks great, and good for you for wearing it on a snowy afternoon!!!

krissy said...

Wow you sexy momma. Grrrr.

I never shop online. Even in frigid conditions. I go out every chance I get. It is my escape from my house, kid, dogs, husband, husband, husband. LOL.

Your bringing sexy back in that dress.

JCK said...

Alas, I do not have a master bathroom or an island, therein. So, I cannot model for you. However, you look mighty flirty!

Texan Mama @ Who Put Me In Charge said...

va-va-va-voom! Your legs look HAWT. Boot camp was worth the $$$.

Dawn@Embracing the Ordinary Life said...

LOL...maybe if I had THOSE shoes I could pull this off...then maybe not!!

Jessica said...

you have inspired me to take a look at max studio for some new threads. but def. you are making me think I need some new shoes. anywhere you recc. for good deals on good quality?

Miranda said...

I love the dress! It looks great with a pair of high heels and looks pretty darn comfy! I kinda want one too.

Im2Sexy4MyVan said...

Boom Baby!
You ROCK that dress.

And it lets those fabulous stilettos finish the masterpiece!

WOW!

Mrs. Stilettos said...

Hi there! I just found your blog and you had me at "Stiletto Ho" - a girl after my own heart!!

That dress is fabulous. Seriously...I bet his jaw dropped!!

I think a date night is in order so you can wear that little number!

MommyTime said...

The dress looks fabulous! If I had that dress, I would wear it every chance I got.

I unfortunately have to stand on the top of the closed toilet to take such pictures, since we do not have a bathroom counter far enough away from the mirror to make any sense. But can I be in the club anyway?

the mama bird diaries said...

You look fabulous! Love the dress.

Jennifer, Playgroups Are No Place For Children said...

That dress is SO fabulous!

Your legs are to kill for. Seriously. I'd do anything not to have ugly knobby knees.

And I'm definitely joining the SAMIC, I need a dress(es) for Blissdom and BlogHer.

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

now I'm just saying . . . did you get "I'll be upstairs - keep the shoes on" from DH?

MIT Mommy said...

Okay, yes, the dress is great on you. Now, what I'd really like to know is how the picture came out so nice in a mirror. I've tried that trick. It isn't easy to pull off well. You are so clever.

If you can teach me to do that, I promise I'll put on my best dress and take a picture of myself to post on the internet.

(Of course, it will take more than technology to look THAT good.)

Deal?

Cheri @ Blog This Mom! said...

You will so pull off a dress that gorgeous in twenty years.

Clare said...

first of all you look hot!! and i love this post, so fun!! i will soon be taking pictures of myself on counters tops, just you wait!!

Life at the White House said...

Good for you!

I actually have one fairly similar and always feel so pretty in it! When I first bought it I thought it was going to swallow me and make me look 10 lbs. heavier....but it doesn't.

Very cute!

And, I'm so glad I stumbled upon your blog!!! I'll have to add it to my reader!

Darci

mommynotes said...

You look fabulous! You should model too! I love the color. Way to go, Oh mommy!!!

Angie @ KEEP BELIEVING said...

Explain the bathroom island to me. I have seen the island in the closets that are large enough - closets that make my drool. I have never seen one in a bathroom and I want to know more about it and how it works in your flow. Pictures??

KEEP BELIEVING

Corinne said...

What a hot mama dress! That color is fantastic. Go you! :)

Carina the Blogarina said...

That dress look better on you then on the modell! I want a bedroom island...

Elaine A. said...

You looks SO great!!!

And.... you have an island in your bathroom?

I need a bigger bathroom.

Jaina said...

Wow, you look amazing! I don't even think I'd have pulled the dress off the rack (and sometimes those are the best dresses!) Now, can we take a moment to drool over the fact that you have an ISLAND in your BATHROOM!?

Ellyn said...

Love the dress. You look great.

CC said...

You DO look like a million bucks!!!

And I just went to 3 malls in the last 2 days. I think I'm done for about 9 months. And my son now has clothes for next winter. Yes, I do pre-buy all his clothes at the "end-of-season" clearance!

Ringleader said...

OK- Jealous on a few levels here:

1. You have an ISLAND in your bathroom!
2. You look hot in that dress.
3. I can only wear shoes like that for about 2 minutes before I want to chop my feet off from the pain.
4. That is all... thanks for sharing the cute pic!

Velveteen Mind Megan said...

Playgroupie sent me over and sweet Jesus those are amazing legs.

My legs couldn't look like that if I had them surgically sculpted and smoothed and prayed over. Man.

I have to stop writing this comment right now because I need to go look at those legs again. Creepy, but true.

Hey it's Amy Shipp said...

Wow! You do look like a million bucks! :D Love the shoes too.
