Dress Malfunctions & A GiGi New York Giveaway

6.23.2014
dress (old)
Our Summer calendar seriously has the word "wedding" written one bazillion times. If only I could have $10 for every wedding we have gone to or will attend this year. But no, I have to buy them a gift. Life isn't fair people. Luckily the wedding we attended this weekend is a childhood friend and it was a pleasure to watch her walk down the aisle and move into a new stage of life. Jon even said it was the most beautiful wedding we have been to. And I have to say is, Southern weddings for the win!

I had originally planned on wearing this gorgeous dress from Shop Riff Raff. It's absolutely stunning on, but I didn't plan ahead. When you buy a new dress, TRY IT ON before you head to another state for a wedding without a plan B. I thought I had the "no bra" situation figured out with the dress. Turns out I didn't. It wasn't until an hour before the wedding that I put my dress on and realized that my girls wanted to be the stars of the show. Or maybe I should say it was a tad bit nipply outside...

Thank goodness my 13-year-old sister came out like a champ and let me borrow this dress from her closet. I bought her this dress last year and luckily I only buy things for her that I will end up stealing at one time or another. So the crisis was averted.

All that I was missing from this outfit was an adorable clutch... 

Once again this is another giveaway where I am completely jealous and wish I could figure out a sneaky way of keeping the prizes all to myself. Don't worry, I wouldn't dare. My conscience would eat me alive for years to come and this girl can't take sleepless nights. Grumpy wouldn't even begin to describe me with lack of sleep...

But I digress.

These GiGi New York clutches have been showing their pretty faces all over the interweb lately, and rightfully so. They are gorgeous! The color options are like some I have never seen before and they are just the right touch of class for a perfect night out on the town. Not to mention the smaller pouch would be fabulous to throw my phone and credit card in when I run into the store. Or just to hold my lipstick in my purse. Multi purpose pieces make my heart swoon! Meet the fabulous ladies who made this giveaway possible.

  6. I've actually done this same exact thing. Unfortunately, I didn't have a sister to borrow clothes from. Thankfully the town we were in had several boutiques only minutes away from our hotel, so I was able to (very quickly) purchase a new dress to wear. Talk about stressful!!
    Oh, and I would pick the sand color. It would go with everything! Thanks!

  25. A dress malfunction only means your fabulous! Way to go with the flow. I would have had a total nervous breakdown and probably cried. Like ugly cry. So perhaps next time I'm faced with a wardrobe malfunction I will ask, WWTMTD?
