Tonight, the hubs and I get a fancy date night for the Military Ball. It's a formal event, so you know I'm stoked to get dolled up! Here's what I'm thinking...
My dress!! It's such a great spring color with lace trim and fluffy underside. My only issue was I needed a bigger bow, duh. haha. So, I went to my trusty craft supplies and found some sheer, wired, black ribbon. That'll do, because when it comes to formal, BIGGER is BETTER!
I can't wait to wear these shoes!!! They're by Guess and I got them at Ross, for $30! Seriously. And here comes my issue.. I'm a girly tomboy, who doesn't wear heels. I've got to practice wearing these babies (like all day), so I don't have dinosaur feet... STOMP STOMP STOMP CRASH!!
Sweats and heels... HOT. ;) Does anyone have any heel tips? I never had to learn to wear them. But, I really want to wear these shoes again. Lace shoes = LOVE.
I think I'm going to wear the black lace trim in my hair. It's ribbon I found in my craft stash, which will soon be fashioned into some sort of headband or wrap. Perfect. Simple pearl-ish earrings, and this choker/necklace.
Sorry for the blurry picture.. I just wasn't too excited about the overall look of it, if you couldn't tell by the expression on my chin, ha. So what shall I do? I'm channeling my J.Crew styling (psh) and changing it into a chunky bracelet... somehow.
I'll have to show you the final look and DIY's for transforming my accessories next week.
This is what I'm going to try for my hair, since I chopped it off. The lace will look cool instead of the double headband. What do you think?
I'm going to paint my nails a lavender color, with sparkles.. different and fun.
Fingers crossed that it all works out!! Now I'm off to get ready!!
