|Miss Hepburn looking fab|
Since there was a theme to the party, I was dressed to the nines in my black dress and strands of pearls. While my dress wasn't exactly, or even close to a Givenchy, I felt confident in the length (just above the knee) and the style (not too snug, but hugging in all the right places). I was channeling Miss Hepburn while still maintaining my own look with my Calvin Klein heels and a different hairstyle. Instead of the updo she sports, I chose to do something a little different. After seeing Amanda Blair's amazing braid headband and side ponytail done by Reagan over at Hairdresser on Fire, I decided to try the look for myself. I'd say it was pretty successful! The side ponytail had some loose strands by the end of the party because my hair isn't quite as long as I'd like, but it worked and it was easy to do!
Overall the afternoon was a complete success and I was fortunate to be able to visit with some old friends and celebrate the upcoming union of the two lovebirds. Kels looked so happy and I can't wait to see how beautiful she's going to look at her wedding!
