Lulu, I dig this. It totally reminds me of an outfit to an event worn by Ashley Olsen. She wore a beautiful maxi gown, but funked it up with urban edge of a leather jacket. It was pure genius.

Oh yeah, I probably had that somewhere in my subconscious when I was thinking of putting together this outfit.

Really like your things to consider. Especially... budget. Not to hate too much, but some of my college roomies have a strange habit of spending an assload of money on one time occassions. Of course, if the piece is amazing -- then I'm all for it. But I just know they'll complain that they can't wear it again because it's already been on facebook. SIGH. Anyway, you look awesome. Great inspiration.

i am uber jealous you got to go to a faux prom. i mean, who gets to go to a ball (unless you attend a military one with a dear friend- not me) at 24?! you looked fabulous lulu. i love the fact that you were dressed up but also comfortable.

Yup, there were fireworks at midnight, 11 rotating bands, 5 stage setups, and sometime during the night I passed out on his shoulder inside the Symphony.

Your date is adorable. Lovely outfit.

Isn't he? I had to dress him on the cheap too.

i adore long dresses and i've been thinking about purchasing one but i'm nervous that because of my height (i'm almost 5'10) and frame (curves) i might look pregnant. thoughts?
EverybodyIsUgly on June 02
I would suggest a stiffer or heavier fabric, not so flowy, with more of a "shape" to avoid the pregnant effect.

PRETTY pretty! any pics with the jacket off??? to get the full blown dress? :)
EverybodyIsUgly on June 02
I do! Hmmm I'll try and attach it. I might be a little red from the champagne though.
