Drum Roll Please...

So I know some of you have been waiting to see the pics of me in my dress from the event I told you about here....well here they are! Thank you all so much for your suggestions! Here's what I ended up doing:

I went with Kim Porter's suggestion of bronze make up...bronze smokey eye with a nude lip. I went with Erika's suggestion of hair over the shoulder, but I went with it down rather than in a pony tail. I know most of you said go with my hair up, however I saw this picture of Kourtney Kardashian wearing her hair over her shoulder and I really liked it.
To keep the look from being too bridal I went with Kimmy D's suggestion to add a pop of color with my jewelry by adding teal color stones.
The majority of you agreed to gold accessories which is what I went with considering it was a conservative and classy event.

The ball was so much fun and it really did feel like prom...we even had to take our picture in front of a faux background...don't laugh! ;)

  5. oh i love everything about this look, that dress was *made* for you!!

    and yay for vegas! I'm glad he's buying it for you haha he's a man of his word!

    I found you can buy line by-pass for $20 days before you go to XS, or you can call ahead to be on the waiting list. The line is extremely long (really..really long) and it gets pretty hectic.

    I think its less than $50 for men if you get in there earlier maybe? I was waiting in line to get in for about 30 mins and it was at around 10:30 pm. Then a bouncer from the front went around the line telling everyone that 'the cover is now $50 for guys!' so I'm guessing its cheaper earlier?

    Anyway inside the club the decor is really pretty and there's a pool at the back with the vip slots around and such. Very classy venue, beautiful (but sometimes trashy-dressed) girls... but I'd say its REALLY crowded. Its a big club but its very crowded so ... be prepared to be smooshed :( I unfortunately brought out my mini chanel chain purse and i had drinks spilt on it and such all night. lol my fault!

    anyway i hope you have a really nice time :D !! and yes, i think xs is worth it..........
