Belle of the Ball: Last Weekend's Wedding

I wore the ever-so-beautiful Aurora dress by Tatyana Boutique to a relative's wedding last Friday. I was so lucky that one of my Instagram fashionista friends had an extra in my size and sent it to me for the cost of shipping! Through blogging and social media, I've been lucky to meet so many amazing people like her and gain an incredible network of friends who share my similar taste in fashion. Even though we've only "met" online I feel like I can connect with so many of them!

I had Edwin get a matching tie to go with my dress. We spent some time planning and coordinating our outfits so of course we had to take some nice shots before heading off to the wedding. A few people at the salon thought I was dressed for prom... I did feel like a princess in this dress, and I guess it's a good thing that I look younger than I am? People didn't believe me when I said I was in my mid-20's!

The quality of this dress is unbelievable. It has a built it crinoline at the hem so I didn't need to add my own petticoat. The pictures don't do this dress justice; the colors are so beautiful! You know that scene in Sleeping Beauty where two of Aurora's fairy godmothers are fighting over what color to make her dress? Make it pink... Make it blue! I'd like to think this dress is a beautiful combination of both! I hope you enjoy the pictures :).
