let me start off by saying this dress was not my idea. my roommate invited me to be his +1 at his company gala a few weeks ago and i just recently got around to editing these photos. he works for a very conservative company, and as a joke i sent him a picture of this dress saying "what if i showed up in this? jk!" to my complete surprise, he encouraged it! i guess he wanted to play a cruel joke on his uptight company. i must say, i definitely felt like the white elephant in the room walking in with this dress on. i wasn't completely comfortable in it, however, these are some of my favorite pictures i've ever taken. everything about this dress, from the lush blue velvet to the deep slits, is scandalous and by the end of the night, i felt like that was alright.
