I am really excited about this post because it is the first set of pictures that I have seriously prepped (hair and make-up wise) for this year, and I think you will be able to tell too. I bought this dress a year ago for one of my best friend’s wedding. I ended up not wearing it after the bridesmaid dress but ever since I got it the peplum trend took off, and for unexplained reasons (laziness) I never showcased it. The good thing about the peplum trend is that it is still prevalent in tops and dresses. But here I am one year later, and my friend that got married a year ago is expecting her baby boy this month in Dominican Republic! I have procrastinated about many things through out the years but this year will be different for me. I will enter graduate school this fall, which I have managed to think about it for 5 years and not do anything. And I plan to keep this blog going one way or another. I am very aware that the road will be long and challenging but it will be well worth it. I have met some AMAZING people because I have a blog and I only look forward to meeting many more.
How about this Louisiana heat y’all? This dress had a lining inside it and when I tell you it was hot as all heck I am not kidding. Keep cool everyone!!!

I received a press release about a month ago regarding the launch of the Krewe du Optic sunglass line. In retrospect I wished I would have fully read the first email because they even offered to let you attend the photo shoot if you contacted them, which would have been […]
