the mesh pencil dress

helloooooo 2017!

2016 really flew by, it's been good but i'm soooo ready for 2017 -- i have a feeling it's going to be a great! actually, i'm going to make it #PHENOMENAL and i hope you do too! what a year it has been for this blog, it's taken me to "places" i never thought i would be in and connected me to people i never thought i would meet. every step along the way has been a bit unfamiliar, but that is when i know i'm on the right path. 

hilarious story about this mesh dress. um, the lining isn't sewn all the way down on the inside. more than halfway through these photos, my photographer was like "why is it see through from your thighs down? is it supposed to be like that?" ha!! uh. no. #wardrobemishap so i laughed at myself hysterically for a good five minutes, pulled the inside slip all the way down and continued on. just another one to add to the list of "blogging incidents" along with the one where i fell backwards and landed on my butt, or the one where my stiletto got stuck in a crack and i went flying out of my shoe. 

lastly, it's been since high school that i've worn some hoop earrings. i really like the way the hoops face on these (if that makes sense) and the subtle amount of sparkle that make them classy statement earrings sure to earn compliments!
