how many grown adults get to go to balls?!?! it's great... sort of. I love, just as much as any other girl, to put on a beautiful dress and feel ah-mazing... but there is something about formal military functions that instantly instill fear into my soul... you want to be appropriate without being boring... you want to stand out without looking like you are trying too hard. there are a ton a freaking rules. boo. i hate rules.
*disclaimer. my husband is not a porn star nor is he a pedophile... he is indeed supporting movember, yes that's right... for the month of november he will rock this moustache in the hopes that you will donate money to prostate cancer research. a great cause... an ugly stache... go here to support him!!!
i bought my dress a few years ago at dillards of all places. it's a bcbg and it was seriously on sale. i thought the look and color were perfect for this season. my bFf abigail pretty much styled the rest... she could seriously open her own jewelry store. she sent the beautiful earrings and the citrine ring on my left hand. the house of harlow peacock ring was a b-day present from one of my favorite people in the world. abigail suggested hair, makeup, and nail polish(essie burgundy)... girl knows her formal wear so i obliged. the hair was totally out of my comfort zone, but it was a hit and really worked with the gown. the makeup was a red-ish smokey eye with a lovely nude lip... i felt pretty fabulous!!!
so what do you think!? did i rock it out at the ball!? do get the opportunity to dress up often!? if so, how do you go about choosing your look?
