It's a Date...

Happy Friday, Lady Loves!  I have been absent the past few weeks from My Friday's Fancies, but I couldn't pass up this week's theme, Date Night. I had so much fun creating this look.  It felt good to get the styling juices flowing again...I was getting a little rusty.

For my date night inspiration, I immediately thought of Dorothy Perkins for my lacy, romantic dress.  You probably already know about this United Kingdom based store if you use Polyvore for style boards. For those of you who don't, you need to check out their website as soon as you  finish reading this post!  No lie, I could easily take one of everything.  I am especially in love with their dresses and accessories, but what really steals my heart are their prices...completely affordable.  The international shipping costs aren't too shabby either.  It is $10 and the items you order will be on your doorstep in 11 days. 

So, do you have a hot date night planned for this weekend?  Well, I have a rendezvous with a few hundred crawfish.  We are hosting our 2nd annual crawfish boil on Saturday with about 70 of our friends.  It should be fun times.  You can't go wrong with a few mud bugs, corn, onions and potatoes in your life!

Cheers to a date filled with sucking crawfish heads while sporting a Dorothy Perkins dress!  
Boy, that would be a Kodak moment!

I love this look. I am also obsessed with Dorothy Perkins. I will get to see the store live and in person in September when I travel to Scotland with the boyfriend.
Even as a vegetarian I would still love to be at your party this weekend...haha.

I just got married recently so my date night dress-ups have become more relaxed. But...I still love to dress up regardless because...what girl doesn't?! =)
