casino style

:: Please insert "i've been busy, not getting dressed, staying in my pajamas, i work in shorts and a t-shirt" excuse variation of you choice here ::

Okay, good... Now that's over and we can move on.
This past Saturday was my lovely sister-in-law's birthday and we planned a last minute rescheduling trip to Tunica, MS! It's just about an hour away from us, and a Southern Vegas style atmosphere.
If you're ever in the area, you should visit... Lots of fun.

Women in my family, whether by blood or by law, love to dress up! And we took the occasion very seriously and put on some duds to rock the casino floors.
(Plus, you enter in free drinks & video poker and I could never leave.)

at the casinos, with the bday girl

To honor her birthday, I wore the hairpiece we wore in her wedding to my brother.

{dress: ROSS | shoes: NINE WEST | ring: TARGET | peacock clip: ETSY, gift}

The pictures are not that great, but I was bound and determined to get pics in before it got dark, hence too much flash and poor quality.  I got so many compliments on this dress at the various casinos we visited... it cost me something like $14.99 at Ross! I love the "cupcake" fold top part, I call it that anyway, I am sure there is a proper name.

I hope my readers liked this post, I found out over the weekend that I have a whole slew of readers (aka my extended family in AL...if you're reading now HEY Y'ALL!)
 I did not know about, and that makes me happy :) 
If you need an outfit fix, may I suggest you check out the Daily Dani, like daily?
