So I'll just show you what I wore to the Esquire Ball.
Catalogue 63. It's a beautiful bright turquoise that the camera sadly didn't capture.
I chose a column dress because I had planned on bringing Iñigo with us. And Iñigo is still exclusively breastfed so I needed an easy access dress. As it turned out, the baby happily slept, which allowed his Mama and Papa to steal away for a few hours. Yey! I also wanted a column dress because it's not structured so it should be kind to a body that had just given birth.
These were my inspirations:
Column dress by Osman Yousefzada
Column corset dress by Victoria Beckham

Anyway, I had wanted to bring the dress to the tailor to have it tweaked a bit. Sew up the sides and the hem so that there's less volume (I kinda look pregnant) and so it won't drag on the floor. But delivery was delayed so I didn't have time to go to the tailor. Still, I love my dress. Everyone loved it, too. So it was a fashion success!
I hope you're having a fashionable Friday!
