Dress c/o Shein (I’m wearing a size medium) // Manolo Blahnik Hangisi Pumps

Last Friday, I attended the wedding of one of my favorite people in the world- Marc and his stunning wife Natalis. To introduce Marc as my high school track coach would do him an injustice so I always introduce him as my godfather. This man has been there for me in more ways than I can remember so there was absolutely NO way I’d miss such an important day in his life.

It’s no easy task volunteering your time to coach a bunch of snotty- perhaps even angry and ghetto- private school kids. Especially when you’re a big wiz at a major financial company. But Marc did it. And Marc did much more. Marc took us to dinner quite often. Marc drove us to therapy. Marc paid for flights to National & State Championships. Marc drove hours to college graduations. Marc sacrificed his personal life for a bunch of minority kids.

He’ll gladly admit we are the reason he took so long to marry. We (especially me) probably pushed away many women we thought weren’t good enough. Hell, I wasn’t too moved when he told me about Natalis. But I finally had to release Marc, because I noticed he was balding. (Just kidding, Marc…well, not really).

Marriage is a beautiful thing… and if done right, you’ll only want to do it once!

Now about this dress, I was a bit apprehensive about it because we know how these Asian companies can do us, right? But when I received this dress from Shein I could’ve cried! The quality is A1. My ONLY criticisms:

1. The lace on the neck line is a bit too long.

2. The lace on the armpit area could have been more fitting.

But who cares when the dress is $42? Like really, who cares??

Make sure you read the reviews before purchasing. I suggest going one size up as it runs small.

Happy Shopping !

    A beautiful dress and even a more beautiful lady!
    I was wondering how you manage to get your hair so voluminous! what hair products do you use? is it all your natural hair or you have some extensions in it?

    Love the dress!! Thinking of buying it and the reviews lead me to your site 😁 I noticed you got it in a medium and said to go up a size, I’m muscular like you and am thinking about getting a large but the medium looks like it fits you amazingly! Did you get it altered at all?
