Pink feather dress for ballet

It's the kind of deal that will go down in budget-shopping history: the most perfect blush pink feather dress secondhand for only $19, in my size, just in time to wear to the ballet. I mean... COME ON!! I feel like I won the dress lottery with this little number. It was my own Carrie Bradshaw moment as we shot these photos before our date night. We had dinner and then watched Orlando Ballet's The Nutcracker (a Christmas gift from my family), and the whole night was just so magical. I will forever cherish the memory, and wearing such a fun dress and getting all dolled up makes the memory even sweeter. Five-year-old me who loved ballet and all things pink was on cloud nine!!
