Exciting News + The Sweetest Little Black Dress

So I write this post with glee today due to two amazing things.

First, the exciting news: Tomorrow I'll be leaving for the weekend to work a wedding with none other than the lovely
Mary Dann and her team in Los Angeles. The weekend will include a few days at the office with the team of party coordinators, an industry party Thursday night, the rehearsal on Friday, and the wedding at the Ritz Carlton on Saturday. I've been waiting for this opportunity for months, and I can't believe it's already here.

While this is Soiree's third season, and each year gets better and better, I feel it's not above oneself to continue to be educated. I opened the company after an intensive course in wedding and event planning, tons of marketing and research, and a leap of faith, but I'd never actually trained with anyone. After speaking on the phone with Mary, she invited me to come meet and work with her team, and I can't think of a better opportunity for any business owner. This is a chance to be critiqued (positive critism is good!) and a way to continually update the way I do things to make them more efficient and effective. I can't be more excited.


Now on to the second part of this post (and they do correlate with each other, promise):

Sure this is an amazing opportunity to be working with the star of Platinum Weddings and Whose Wedding Is It Anyways, but when faced with something of this calibur, I had no choice but to go shopping. I know, it's a sad position to be in. But I'm happy to take on the challenge.

Insert the black dress. After power shopping through several stores, trying to find a dress that wouldn't be too revealing, yet still dressy enough for the event, I stumbled into Ann Taylor and laid eyes on this beauty:

It's Jackie-O in dress form. This picture really doesn't do it much justice, but it has hidden buttons all down the front, and sweet little pockets. Paired with my favorite black heels and I'm in heaven.

A close second was this lovely:

Both dresses have the perfect ability to be worn from work to cocktails, don't you think? Ann Taylor has a great new line of dresses and styles like this, and with a great sale going on to boot.
Keep checking back as I'll be posting updates and pictures from the weekend and the event as it progresses!
Happy Planning, and Happy Wednesday!
