The Laura Dress

Hi Prepsters,

So I received a few emails asking when I was going to show my Laura dress from the Body Positivity Ball that took place on December 2nd. The pictures that were taken during the event are not the type of content that would have given the dress justice, so I decided to re-shoot it for you guys.


This gorgeous dress is sold exclusively at the Laura Dress Shop at Yorkdale Mall. It has these beautiful bauble style sleeves, and natural waist line, which I find is the most flattering for me, as I have a very short torso. 


Another thing that I loved about this dress was the material. It was extremely comfortable on, and hugged me in the places that I needed it to. The dress also has this sexy slit in the back, which gives enough space to show off you heels. 


I paired the dress with gold accessories. The earrings are from Reitmans, and the tassle adds a touch of elegance that is required with this gown. The ring and bracelet was designed by me, and I had a jeweller create it in Pakistan. The rubys in the bracelet work well with the red lipstick colour I had chosen. 


These gold shoes are from by Guess, and I had purchased them from DSW Canada a few months prior. They add a little bit of height, and the pointed-toe pops out with every step.
