This is quite possibly the best thing I have ever scored. I found this gem at Wasteland for only $60 when it was at least $2,500 retail. I have no idea why it was so inexpensive by it fit me like a dream! I just had to bust it out for my cousin's Bat Mitzvah seeing as that is the only formal-ish event I have on the calendar for a while. I remember seeing this dress on the runway and in the ads and wanting it desperately! Sometime it just takes a little while for things to appear at more affordable prices! I know I will be loving this dress for decades to come.

Flowing Flowers

I know it has been a long time since I have updated and I apologize! Finding a photographer is a constant struggle. Any way, this weekend, my cousin celebrated her Bat Mitzvah and what better time to use this as an opportunity to show-case designs I nearly never get to wear from my closet.

This dress is one of my prized possessions. It was a gift from my Grandma years ago for Christmas. We got it at UAL in New Orleans for only $300!!! The fabric is so light and flowing and feels like a million bucks. It makes me feel like a princess and sometimes that is exactly what one needs to be instantly cheered up. Stay tuned to see the stunning dress I wore to the party!
