Senior Week + Sorority Formal (Catching Up!)

22 Jun

So sorry for the radio silence folks… I was a bit preoccupied graduating from college and moving to Tel Aviv, Israel!!! I thought I’d start updating y’all with Β a few pictures here and there, then get back to the more regular fashion things I’ve been saving up to share :)

In my sorority we have a tradition of the last week of school before finals being senior week. It’s officially the best week ever and you spend every day doing something different, enjoying spending your remaining time with sisters and a last round of hurrahs with your pledge class. We had senior will downs, shrine reveal, some crazy themed happy hours, end of year banquet and superlatives, and of course, Black Diamond Ball!

Most of my pledge class in our craziest date dash outfits outside of our favorite bar in Tucson :)

My little presented me with my senior superlative of Most Likely To Run Hollywood!

New dress for formal! (aka, bringing sexy back.)

2 Feb

Hello All! I’m so excited to have been asked to participate in the David’s Bridal Prom Blog Tour. At first, I was a little bit skeptical about being able to find the perfect dress for my upcoming sorority formal at David’s Bridal. I had visions of wedding and bridesmaids dresses in my head- not exactly what I was looking for. However, after looking online in their newly revamped Prom Section I decided to give it a try.

I showed up to the store for my appointment, and the manager and my sales associate were ready and waiting for me. They were extremely friendly and gave me an overview of the selection, as well as took my measurements for a precise fitting. I tried on SO. MANY. DRESSES. All of them were gorgeous and it was tough picking just one. I couldn’t decide on long or short, color or black, but in the end I went with this gorgeous floor-length royal blue backless showstopper. It’s so different from anything else I own and the fabric and beading exhibit extremely quality craftsmanship. One minor problem I ran into was that I was really in between sizes in the women’s department. Luckily, they also had a big selection in juniors and I was able to get a better fit from there.

When I got home, my sorority sisters couldn’t believe that this dress was under $200… a few of them had been looking at very similar dresses at stores like BCBG for around $300-$500. The dress I picked is just as fabulous and won’t break the bank! After my positive experience, I’m definitely a DB convert. Do you have a formal or prom coming up? What type of dress do you plan to wear? Have you ever found something perfect in an unexpected place before? Do share!

P.S. I think we can all agree it’s about time for a spray tan, no?

White Out (Sorority Formal Edition)

2 May

So a few weeks ago I committed to the Bloggers Do It Better challenge, a blogging initiative to get a whole bunch of us together and see various interpretations of fashion trends. You can find out more about it from my sidebar button…. Anyways, this week’s trend was “white out,” which worked out especially well for me as I selected an all white dress for my sorority formal which was on Friday. Here are some photos from my interpretation of the trend, and some cuties of the boy and also my best friend/roommate.
