The Bahamas: Day 5 (Part 1)

March 15, 2011

New Year’s Eve had finally arrived.  My Dad, in order to keep my brother and I in suspense, had only told us that we were going to a “black tie event.”  We knew we were in for something spectacular, but had absolutely no idea what.

That is until we walked into what seemed liked another world and saw the following sign:

We were attending an “Alice and Wonderland” ball!  We arrived before the doors into the ballroom were open, which allowed us time to mingle with some interesting characters.

Then, as luck would have it, my brother spotted Alice!  She seemed to be quite smitten with him, would you agree?

The bells chimed nines times, letting us know that it was nine o’clock and the doors would now be opening.  It was time to follow Alice down the rabbit hole. . .

      That’s the dress I wore in my boudoir pics, you don’t remember?! It’s from the BCBG 2010 runway collection! It’s my favorite item in my closet 🙂

      I’m really lucky to have such a great family!!! I wish my parents traveled more, but thankfully my brother has the bug now. I can’t wait to show them Argentina in 2 months. 🙂

    I had THE BEST alice in wonderland costume one year… three of my friends were the cheshire cat, the mad hatter, and the queen of hearts. We all made our costumes (well, had them made haha) and it was so fun! Wish I could insert pics here 🙂
