When I was growing up I was a tomboy. It wasn’t until a date with my then crush at a Valentine ’s Day dance that I started to embrace my feminine side. I remember shopping with my dearest friend and finding that perfectly fitted purple dress. Little did I know that moment would be a turning point in my style evolution. It didn’t happen over night or like one of those ugly duckling makeover moments you seen in most teen movies. No, it was more like a summer breeze that blows in the soft scent of Lilac bushes when you least expect it. As the years pass on I fall more in love with the understated and very chic versions of cocktail dresses. Nothing makes me feel more comfortable, graceful and strong then when I am wearing one of them. I hope you enjoy some of my pinterest favorites.
