Ballroom Badgley

We're going to the ball...

Every year my boyfriend and I attend the Marine Corps Birthday Ball. It is a celebration of the accomplishments of the Marine Corps, and includes a fancy banquet dinner. For him it isn't so much fun, but for me it is a rare opportunity to get dressed up and feel like a princess for a night. 

This year I felt the need to splurge on my evening look. I chose a floor length cherry red gown by Badgley Mischka. It was the perfect length and fit beautifully. And as my obsession for the (slightly overused) peplum trend is still going strong, I fell in love with this dress. I styled the look with vintage black costume earrings and my mom's diamond tennis bracelet that she wore at her wedding. I felt like a celebrity on my way to an award show, waiting for someone to ask me "Who are you wearing?".  

Who would you wear to the ball?

XX,
