I had the most romantic Valentine's Day this year! My certain handsome someone (who happens to get credit for most of the pictures on this blog) escorted me to a Valentine Ball at the French Embassy in Washington D.C.! The French Embassy, friends! As a lover of romance and all things French, I have been oh so excited for our plans!
My preparations for the ball were all part of the fun! I spent the past couple of weeks shopping for the perfect gown with girlfriends, getting my nails done, and thinking about hair and make-up ideas. I absolutely loved dressing so glamorously for a night on the town with my man!
Initially, I didn't want a black dress because I wanted something a little bit more fun. Ultimately, though, this dress was the winner for its classic glamour, fit and comfort! Since I did choose a black dress, I chose classic red details like lipstick and nails for a pop of Valentine's Day color.
The man and I had a wonderful time at the ball! We ate delicious French food, had our caricature drawn and danced the night away! It was a romantic holiday to be remembered!
What I'm Wearing:
- Dress: Macy's (similar, similar)
- Earrings: Macy's (exact)
- Shoes: From high school (similar, similar)
Come back later this week to read about my make-up choices and techniques!
