Bell of the Ball.











Lavender 1950's Tea Party Dress, Pearls, White Gloves: Thrifted.
Grey Heels: Forever21.

Hello there everyone!
Last night was my school's annual awards banquet where they give out awards for student's academic achievements. I was meaning to post these pictures of my outfit last night, but we didn't get home until really late and I was exhausted! It's really not that fancy of an affair (most people wear jeans and such), but it gave me an excuse to wear the beautiful 1950's lavender tea party dress I thrifted a few weeks ago. To say I was the most dressed up student is somewhat of an understatement, haha! But, sigh... that dress is a total dream. I wish I could dress like that everyday. And how adorable is the little bow on the back? Perfection.

Usually at these kind of award ceremonies, it's an all or nothing kind of deal. Either a student wins 8 award, or one award in a really easy subject. Not everyone gets invited, so it's a real honor! This year I received one award that was incredibly surprising and very honorable.The advanced junior English award.

It surprised me to receive this award because I never particularly thought that I was that talented of a writer, and I know for a fact that my grammar is just atrocious. However, after a while of thinking I came to a realization and a huge one. I do deserve this award. My writing has come so far in the past few years and I feel as though I've really developed my own style and technique due to this blog. I'm so thankful I won this award and not any other award because I think it describes who I am. Although I am quiet and keep to myself at school, my writing like my clothing allows my voice to be heard and it allows me to show people pieces of my heart they otherwise would never get to see. By winning this award, it's awarding me for being myself. For being honest and truthful in my writing and not holding back any part of me. I think that's what you have to do when you write. Just let yourself flow onto the page and let people see who you really are.

With much love, Lauren.

This dress really is a dream! The cut, the colour... the bow! I am dying :) You remind me so, so much of Jackie Kennedy in these photos, especially with the pearl accessories and the gloves. Just beautiful.
