Utah Fashion Week Gala.

IMG_3675these photos turned out to be everything i hoped they would be and more. while i take professional photos weekly, robbie & i haven’t had any together since a mini Valentine’s shoot earlier this year! when Utah Fashion Week first announced a few months ago that it would be held in SLC and be a black tie gala, i immediately hopped online to find a dress. i own a few short cocktail dresses, but nothing to fit the bill for a black tie event.

one of my favorite bloggers has worn Virgos Lounge for multiple occasions {here, here, here, & here}, so that’s where i started to look first. a majority of their gowns are already modest or can be made so with minor modifications. as you can see with my dress, i had fabric sewn in to cover the large keyhole & i also had the leg slit sewn up a few inches. i love how it turned out! i couldn’t resist wearing a dress in my signature color, so i knew the minor modifications would be so worth it.

my makeup artist friend Brynn Thomas did my makeup and i love how talented she is! Brynn has done my makeup for a few other occasions, including my engagement photos. she’s my go-to MUA. so we are teaming up to give you a chance to win a makeup session with her! it’s the perfect time of the year to get your makeup done for Christmas cards or formal Holiday events! head on over to my insta for details to enter!

lastly, shout out to my husband for being so easy to take photos with all the time and being my handsome escort to Utah Fashion Week. we had so much fun dressing up, eating fancy hors d’oeuvres, and mingling with fellow fashionistas & designers. i hear way too many girls always telling me they either have to leave their husband at home or drag him along to events like these, but Robbie always loves it as much as i do and i’m very grateful for him for that.

happy saturday! be sure to enter the giveaway on my IG for the free makeup session with Brynn! xx
