Dress Like a Badass Every Day

You know those mornings you wake up and immediately panic about what to wear to work? You know the ones I’m talking about…where you face your closet and find you own absolutely nothing acceptable to wear. You want the perfect badass dress that shouts, “Don’t mess with me because I feel great, I look great, and I am great!”

Well, I found it for you.

Welcome to M2057 by Maria Pinto

M2057 Dresses


It’s no secret that my body image and I don’t always see eye to eye. So, when I attended an event at M2057 and met Maria, I was immediately drawn to her “cease fire” mentality for the daily ‘getting dressed’ ritual.

The clothes are designed to fit a wide range of body types and sizes, and can be styled a number of ways to transition seamlessly from casual to formal events. It is a collection that makes women feel beautiful and keeps up with their busy lives.

M2057 Dress

I reluctantly tried on a dress at the event and was SHOCKED at how fabulous I looked in it. (And, trust me, I NEVER say stuff like that about myself.) It skimmed over the bumps, had a bit of an edge to it, and made me feel like a million bucks! So, I tried on a second dress and was equally impressed. What a pleasure to wear something designed for an adult woman’s body!

Call a ‘cease fire’ on yourself and visit M2057  NOW. For Chicagoans, stop in to M2057’s new shop at 833 West Washington.

You’re welcome.
