Over the last few months, you may have noticed I love getting dressed up! I adore anything girly… so if there’s an excuse to indulge in makeup, clothes and sparkle, I’m in my element. Right from when I was a little girl, I always thought Cinderella was so lucky to go to that Ball! There’s just something magical about the word, it conjures up all sorts of wonderful thoughts about stunning gowns, handsome men, beautiful dancing and amazing food. So I was thrilled when Chris and I had the opportunity to attend a Ball recently.
Finding the perfect outfit can be tricky when you don’t go to something like this everyday (although I wish there were more opportunities to wear a ball gown, what’s so wrong with rocking a gown on a weeknight? I’ve said a few times to my friends, I’d love us to host a formal dinner every now and then. Anyway, I invested in a black BCBG Max Azria gown last year for another ball we went to and although I would have loved a sequin number, I thought the great thing about this dress is I can completely change the look with accessories.
This time, I kept it simple but added some sparkle with turquoise earrings, a bow ring and shimmery bow clutch. I love the high-low bubble hem on this dress, pleat detail on the bust and long bow tie at the back…
Meet Our Head Stylist…
If you haven’t met the gorgeous Annelise from Aunie Sauce – you’re in for a treat today! Her nickname is Aunie (ah-nee) and I came across her blog not long after I first started and instantly fell in love with her warmth, humor and down-to-earth style. I think she’d be the kind of girl you meet and instantly know you’ll be great friends. A lover of all things beauty and style, Aunie’s also really open about sharing her life and her thoughts. Her honesty is as magical as her photoshoots – and the amazing hairstyles she creates…
STYLE Q&A WITH AUNIE:
What is your favorite wardrobe piece? I love scarves! I have a ton of them and they are always my go-to piece for jazzing up any outfit. I don’t love accessories, arm parties or big bling, so this is my way of making an outfit pop without all the hassle of a gazillion pieces of sparkle! I usually buy regular scarves, tie the ends together and rock them like an infinity scarf… this also serves as a double purpose so I don’t have to buy so many!
Describe your style in three words? Casual, affordable, chic.
Best piece of fashion advice? If you’re not comfortable before you leave the house, change your outfit. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve left the house thinking that my earrings are too heavy, my shirt is too low-cut, my pants are too tight, or my heels are too high… but that I’ll be able to “deal” with it. Ugh. No one wants to deal with that all day! If you don’t feel comfortable being YOU, odds are, you won’t have your best day. Dress for you, put on your smile and the rest will follow.
