Ball Time:Inspirations

The Marine Corps ball is right around the corner, yikes! 
But no fear inspirations await as I take you along my mission for an affordable styling dress! I posted last year's dress and pictures here! Here's a few that caught my eye this time around!
White seems to be all the rage lately, never great on me, but lovely on darker skin tones!!! This one's stunning from nordstrom.



Navy blue gets me every time via renttherunway




Great spin on classic black via renttherunway



This is the modern version of the pretty woman dress via netaporter




I can't explain why but I love this vintage looking dress via netaporter 
 its so different and unique, but not for everyone!




LOVE ruffles via neimanmarcus

gorgeous! all of them... you looked so gorgeous last year too. I can't wait to see what you will come up with this year. Have you heard of rent-the-runway (I think that is what it's called) you can rent super expensive dresses for a day/weekend... might be worth looking into!?!?

Navy blue! Navy blue! OMG, please rent that one and wear it! You would look amazing!

Oh, how fun. To dress up super fancy and not have it be prom pt. 2 ... just a wee bit jealous over here!

The Pacific NW boasts a lot of things, but event requiring formal ball attire? Not so much.

As far as the dresses? I always love asymmetrical and the navy is utterly stunning. But I have to say, the black number is quite intriguing! The lines on it are amazing!

Totally loving that bright pink one! They're all so pretty though! Can't wait to see what you wear. It's so fun that you get to dress up like that! I haven't dressed that nice outside of a wedding. Ha!

Are you really buying another gown! I say wear what you got and buy more camera equipment! Not as fun though... This will most likely be our last ball, so I'm thinking about selling all my gowns.

That last comment is actually me... Rebecca. Not sure why it is saying Seth.
