Last weekend I went the the Marine Corps Ball on Ellis Island with my boyfriend. I know I never mentioned it but I actually didn't know I was going until earlier that week (which made finding a dress a little stressful). It was definitely a memorable time and even though it meant a lot more traveling and a lot less sleep I'm glad I went.
Here are a few hotel outfit pictures I took when we came back to the hotel after the dinner to change. I didn't pull out my camera much that night but I'll update if I find some more pictures floating around somewhere.
About the dress; I ended up renting it from RentTheRunway since I had very little time to find a dress that was "black tie or ball gown". I'm pretty impressed with how simple the process is especially if you're in new york.
p.s.I just placed an order at Apothica.com that I'm pretty excited about and I wanted to share the friends&family 25% off discount code with you guys. Just enter FF25 at checkout. They also have an awesome selection of skincare at SkincareRx.com and they carry a huge variety of brands (skinmedica, chanel, skinceuticals, shiseido, etc.) Check it out before it expires on 12/1!
