As I’ve mentioned many-a-time, I sing with some pretty cool people and last Saturday night we decided to throw ourselves a formal dance! (I totally planned to post this on Sunday but due to technical difficulties I was unable to…life happens.) Can I please take 5 seconds to say how much I LOVE this dress?! And, making it all the more sweet, it’s one of my most epic thrift store finds to date.
I picked up this little Banana Republic number four years at a local thrift store for $20 or $30. Although there aren’t all that many reasons to wear such a fancy dress in my everyday college life (aside from playing dress up which is always a fun game!) I’ve held onto this dress waiting for the best opportunities to bust it out.
I also vamped up my make up…a lot. Despite looking like one seriously hot mess at the end of the dance (what can I say I dance it out like a champ) I was soooo excited to have a chance to try out some flashy eye make up because, again, there aren’t all that many opportunities in my day to day life to wear 5 lbs of make up.
(This is a candid that shows off just how graceful I am in heels…yeah. If you happened to be wondering why I don’t sport fancier shoes more often, this is why.)

So there you have it, me being all fancy! Now I just need to learn how to pose in my nice duds and I will be all set to be the next Kate Middleton or at least Michelle Obama (who totally would wear Banana Republic, just sayin’).
