A Little Glam

Hello darling readers.  How come nobody uses the word "darling" anymore?  I love that word, but I think after Carey Grant and Za Za Gabor, everyone else just sounded ridiculous saying it.  That is my theory any way .   We are loving Boston so far and I am trying to Instagram as much of it as I can so if you want to follow along, I am emily7n.  So far we have just flown in (and I DID see some lighthouses from our plane window,  2 of them!!  It still want to see one up close however, we'll see), checked into our hotel, and then went to an AMAZING seafood restaurant for dinner.  Josh and I both were brave and tried clams for the first time and they were quite awesome.  Honestly the best seafood I have ever tasted.  Okay, on to the post.

Now that the Mrs. Utah cat is out of the bag, I wanted to do a post on the evening gown that I designed for the Mrs. United States Pageant.  I was lucky enough to work with an amazing seamstress and had the chance to show her exactly what I wanted and have her make it for me. 
  The entire bodice was hand beaded.  I was SO impressed with this awesome seamstress.  We called the dress "Starry night".  It really reminded me of the Milky Way.  Fashion really is art.
 In the first picture it looks blue, but it was a gorgeous royal purple and I LOVED it.

 I honestly felt like such a princess when I wore it.
If I had to do it again, I'd pick a little higher quality fabric as this one was hard to get it to not look mused, but it was so FUN to wear.
I honestly am not sure that I will ever get back into it again (or have any reason to), but I sure felt like a princess on this night.
