A few weeks ago The Banker and I attended our good friend’s black tie wedding. It was my first black tie event and I was beyond excited to have an excuse to wear a formal black-tie gown. After unsuccessfully searching Rent The Runway and other clothing rental sites, I turned to eBay and found several Tadashi Shoji gowns at a really good price. This one was NWT, but was a fraction of the retail price. Needless to say, I could not pass it up!

    Oh my. You look stunning. I don’t think I have ever attended a black tie event before (aside from working a red carpet). So fun to glam up like this!!

    BA, you are a vision! This dress is phenomenal. I was stalking a red Tadashi Shjoi dress for awhile, and now I totally regret not biting the bullet and getting it. Actually, I’m going to take your advice and turn to eBay! You look truly stunning. I love those earrings, too. And holy cheekbones! All around, just gorgeous!
