Sorry for the lack of shallow information lately! I had a special visitor, and then was on vacation for a week without computer access.
I am going to be writing about my ideas for my gown/makeup/hair for the Marine Ball in November.
In the meantime, I did a bit of birthday shopping...early. This trench my aunt got me--the absolute perfect fall jacket. I'm loving it. The boots the boyfriend is getting me for my birthday. I have been looking for the perfect black equestrian boots for a few winters now. Last winter, I ordered some rubber ones from Urban Outfitters, but ended up returning them. I have searched online, and tried on many pairs whenever I happen to be shopping. I went to outlets with my aunt, mom and sister-in-law and found some good ones on sale at Gap. They were suede, however, and weren't well made. I was perfectly content with them until my SIL saw these ones at Anne Klein of all places...and I knew they were THE ONES.
