annaandoldlace 's Thoughts:

I bought this dress on etsy.com from a shop called vintagevalise. The shop owner was so great in collaborating with me to make this gorgeous dress, which is based on one of her wedding/engagement dresses. She dyed the muslin and lace in tea, which gave it this earthy tone.
I wore TOMS to match the off-white detailing.
I used one of the ribbons she included for my headband.
This dress got all kinds of compliments, and it’s super lightweight and comfortable, which was a huge plus.
My awesome boyfriend/date made my corsage, which was adorable.
We went with our two best friends (who recently started dating) out to dinner and then to the dance.
Afterwards, the four of us snuck into a park at midnight and went skinnydipping in the lake. It was freezing cold, but totally worth it!
We crashed at a friend’s house, watching Disney movies, and the boy made me breakfast in the morning at my house.
All in all, it was great!
