The night I have been waiting for since I bought this dress 2 weeks ago finally arrived! Friday was my school's winter Semi-Formal. This was probably the first time that the exact outfit I planned in my head was the one I ended up wearing. I even bought the exact pair of shoes I'd envisioned (this never happens)!
The theme for the dance was Old Hollywood. I wanted to my look to evoke old Hollywood glamour; that's why I chose a lace dress, red lips (Flirt! High Wattage from Kohl's- extremely long lasting) and large chandelier earrings, but I also toughened up my look with with zippered and buckled cutout leather booties.
This dress is amazing; it is so flirty and fun to dance in. The earrings are quite heavy and I was afraid that dancing in them wouldn't be a good idea, but I kept them on all night and had no problems. It was a great night for fun and fashion!
