Rose gold everything

Rose gold is everywhere right now, and it’s right up my alley: pink and sparkly! But, like blush pink, it can be a little tricky to wear, and even trickier to order online. I’ve tried rose gold dresses before, and they did not work at all with my skin tone. So I was pretty shocked when this dress I ordered for the Marine Corps Ball not only fit perfectly, but was also the perfect shade.

Haunani, Patty and I had henna done by the incredible Farheen the night before the ball, and I decided to go with one whole arm. Toby wanted me to ask her to put an Eagle, Globe & Anchor in the design, but I declined. Haha.

I needed cute shoes since the hemline is high-low, and I was somehow able to find the right rose gold shade on sale at the mall here, and then picked up some mermaid-esque earrings at a kiosk in the same mall. I got the bag at a Coach outlet in Italy. Ridiculous, I know!

We had a great time at the ball, and Haunani, Patty and I managed to do quite a bit of dancing. We also stayed at the hotel this year, which meant we could go back and order room service after the ball was over. Definitely an awesome night!
