Belle of NYUs Military Ball


I’ve never been to a ball before, so I was super excited to see that NYU was having a Military Ball- which meant I could invite my dad and mom 🎉

I was super excited for a few reasons:

1. To see them, duh!

2. To celebrate my dad’s military service

3. To dress up with my family and show school pride

4. To receive my military chords for graduation

After we secured our tickets, reality set in... I hardly have anything in my closet that I still wear...most less a dress or a gown worthy of going to a ball.

Let me tell you, that’s where Macy’s came in to save the night!!

The Macy’s at Herald Square has an exclusive in-store collection of Adrianna Papell dresses that are stunning for any occasion!

When I walked into the Herald Square Macy’s and saw the Adrianna Papell dresses,I was floored! Dresses of all lengths, colors and in plus-sizes!

I was able to have an exclusive experience with the My Stylist @ Macy’s and try on several dresses in a private dressing room with plenty of help zipping up the dresses when needed (ooohhhh! I felt so VIP!)

Here are some of my fave dresses I tried on from Adrianna Papell :

I had a hard time choosing between the black sequined gown and the lilac beaded gown- so I took to Facebook and Instagram to get some opinions!

The overwhelming majority on both Insta and Facebook chose the lilac beaded dress!

Before my parents and I headed to the ball, we decided to get dolled up and have a photo shoot! Here’s some of the behind the scenes!

Once we arrived at the event, we were all thrilled to see how beautifully everything was set up and began taking pictures!

At the end of the night, we were still all smiles! I even won a 5 day pass to The Cliffs at Dumbo here in Brooklyn!

Here’s some of my favorites from our photo shoot! Shots are by Dave of @SuperDaveMedia (IG link)

Remember, the Adrianna Papell collection is exclusively at the Herald Square Macy’s in New York! (click the links to give them a follow on social media)

Are you operating out of Faith/Love, or Fear?

When you know better, you do better. But what about when you don’t know better? We don’t really talk about HOW we arrive at the knowledge of “doing better.” I guess that’s because hindsight is always
