- A Fancy Affair -
A friend’s wedding with a reception at The Houstonian was the perfect occasion to use the dress rental I won from New For The Night at their launch event. The dress borrowing concept is a great idea if you want to wear something fabulous but don’t want to spend the money on a designer dress you’ll only wear once. I set up my appointment to pick out a dress and arrived to a room full of beautiful frocks! The general manager was on hand to assist in my dress search and pulled so many wonderful dresses. The dress that caught my eye from the start was the above photographed Catherine Deane Larue design.
Having tried the Catherine Deane Larue dress first, everything else just didn’t stand out quite as much. I couldn’t get over the lace back. My mind started spinning with thoughts of hair because it had to be done in a way to show off the back. This dress wanted to go home with me :) The seams on the front were slimming, and black pumps and a clutch complimented the black detail in the dress perfectly for a wedding guest ready ensemble. I loved this dress! I was sad knowing it had to return it to New For The Night, but I also found a new designer to love!
The bride was stunning, the reception was beautiful, the sunglasses made for a fun prop for the evening, and we danced until our feet hurt! Wonderfully successful wedding for an amazing couple!
On a random note, I also discovered Marcona almonds with which I am now currently obsessed.
See all of the beautiful dresses New For The Night has to offer and “Borrow something beautiful” for your next event - from backyard BBQ to formal gala!
