I have been secretly stalking a local designer, Erin Foley from RCB Fashion, on Instagram for almost a year…loving every single one of her creations and photo shoots! I knew deep down in my soul that I had to have one of my own. My dearest Friend, Peter Carey from Carey On Public Relations was throwing me a 10k soiree…I wanted to go over the top and I knew where I had to go for the perfect dress! I met with Erin one time, explained to her what I wanted and within a week, this gorgeous gown was mine…all mine…nobody else’s…made just for me!!! It screamed me with the feathery halter-style bodice and big fluffy tulle skirt…all in black…my favorite color…and the satin belt with the big, bold black flower was just too perfect!

I wanted to sleep in it…I felt like I was living inside an episode of Sex in the City…this was a definite Carrie Bradshaw moment! A few weeks, later Peter and I were co-hosting the red carpet for The Sandox, Evening of Believing Prom…what was I going to wear???  Just one last time…I wanted to feel like a Princess again…and so I did!

Everyone loved it and I love it…but I decided that somebody else needs to love it to and wear it and feel like a Princess…so let’s get to the fun…I want you to have this dress and I want one of the best charities…who does amazing things for children, to benefit!

How can this dress be yours, you ask? You can purchase a ticket for $25 by clicking here. We are kicking off the event on Tuesday, October 17th at 6:30pm at Blackfinn Ballantyne. We will be selling a minimum of 100 tickets and a maximum of 200 tickets…winner will be selected on a Facebook live after at least 100 tickets are sold and also announced via email. If purchased locally, Erin will alter the dress free of charge, if needed. The dress is approximately a 2/4, but can be altered from a 0 to 8! So please share this post and spread the word…let’s raise some money for this fabulous cause! 100% of the proceeds will benefit this charity. Good luck and I want to see pictures of how amazing you look and feel in this one-of-a-kind design!!!
