New York Botanical Garden Conservatory Ball

Dress: Needle & Thread Shoes: Manolo Blahnik Bag: YSL (also love this one) Earrings: Nicola Bathie c/o 

Sharing a few snapshots from the New York Botanical Garden Conservatory Ball.
Kiel and I were invited to attend by a friend a couple of weeks ago and
had the best time! The event, which featured a garden exhibition by
renowned artist Dale Chihuly was magical! My dress turned out to be
perfect for a spring/summer black tie gala which I find can be difficult
to dress for. I almost always opt for a shorter dress! I love
the selections from 
Needle & Thread this
season. The embroidered and sequin detail on each dress is stunning. I
will admit they are not inexpensive but reasonable for the quality and
design. I felt like a princess all evening! The dress was a little snug,
due to my ever growing waist, but I would say it was true to size
otherwise. I’m usually a size 0 and I purchased this in a UK6.
