Adult prom? Yup, that’s what we called it. Last weekend my classmates and I went on a formal boat cruise, and we spent the whole night dancing and enjoying the beautiful skyline from Lake Michigan. (Of course when I went to the top of the boat to look at the view I didn’t have my phone and only took photos on a friend’s. Boo!) I convinced Bri to visit for a girls weekend and be my plus one, which made the night even better. We spent the day getting manicures, brunch and blowouts with my friends, so much pampering! There may have been some Sprinkles cupcakes in there too to celebrate my friend Kate’s birthday.
I actually bought this dress a couple months ago when my friend Laura persuaded me to go to Snowball (a different Chicago formal charity event!) after a rough day. I needed to find something that could be delivered within four days since I was cutting it so close to the event, and I decided to try out Lulus. I had never bought anything from there before but with a great return policy I figured I’d give it a shot. I bought four dresses, two styles in two sizes. I liked them both but felt this was the dressier option and thought the strappy back (though tricky to put on… “BRI HELP HELP” as I became a tangled mess) was super fun. By the way, you’re not going to believe this dress was only $56! <mic drop>
