The one where I went formal. {A Fashion Post}

Remember back when I was asking your suggestions on black tie wear? I debated so much over what I was going to wear, tried on nearly 7 million dresses and spend nights lying in bed, terrified of renting and hating the dress the day before the event. It was pretty ridiculous. 

I was at the mall one night with all the boys. We had just finished dinner and I ran up to Nordstrom see if there was anything there before we left. I tried this dress on with the most amazing bottom. It was dragging all over the ground, so I dismissed it, figuring it would change the look too much to have it hemmed. 

Well, I couldn't stop thinking about that dress! So, I decided to just buy it and give it a shot. Except it was sold out in my size everywhere. I googled, searched Poshmark, ebay, everywhere I could think of and no dress. Until one day an add popped up on my sidebar for HSN. And there was the dress. I was ecstatic. I ordered that baby, (for way less than Nordstrom!) had 4 inches cut off the bottom and loved every second in it. Now I need somewhere to wear it again. Well, other than around the house. Done that.

We went to a charity event for Samaritan's Feet, which is am amazing organization that provides shoes to people who don't have any. We checked our shoes at the door and got a little taste of what it would be like to live barefoot. It's amazing how many people around the world loose limbs and even face death because of foot-borne illness and disease. As someone who has quite the thing for shoes, it really hit home for me. What is my fashion statement could literally be another's life. No matter what is happening for us, there is always, always something to be grateful for.

  2. What a neat charity! It really is amazing that something we take for granted and treat as a necessity, is something that others would see as luxury. The dress looks fantastic! It is always fun to have a piece of clothing come to you through the universe like that...you know it is meant to be!
