Swing Dancin'.

Hi there!

Today my swing class held a little fall fling dance! I've really enjoyed learning how to swing dance this semester. At first, I actually hated the class because I am a horrid dancer and, it takes me awhile to catch onto techniques. But as time has gone on I've become more and more relaxed with dancing and come to really enjoy the art of swinging. It was fun to put my skills to the test today for the dance versus the classroom setting.

I've had this sequin Faviana dress since August and not worn it because I hadn't a single worthy event! I thought that a swing dance called for this little beauty to make its debut though :) It's incredibly made, completely sequined, and has a silky, comfortable lining. I would definitely recommend checking out Favina if you're looking for your prom dress for the upcoming spring, or even just for holiday dresses!

I wanted a full skirt to twirl in for my twists and turns on the dance floor, so I paired the skirt with this custom made tulle skirt from Kellie Falconer. She makes the skirts in any color, so of course I had to pick out a vibrant red; you all know I wouldn't pick any other color, heh.

Hope your week has been going well so far! If not, leave me something you'd like me to pray about for you ♥

With much love, Lauren.

Aww, you're so pretty <3 I love your hair that way! It reminds me of Aria's hair from PLL! I'm sure you got a ton of looks at the dance! Love you xx

this is officially the cutest dress ever. the sequined top and the tulle skirt pair so perfectly, and your retro curls and red lip totally make the outfit. just lovely!

Hurrah for swing-dancing!!! Have you learnt Susie Q's yet?!?!?! My favourite step AND the back/tandem charleston!!!
Such a pretty outfit! I couldn't wear that dress to swing in though- I just KNOW, I would get caught on some guy's button or something and probably end up garroting myself or ripping it- I seem to be accident prone with any sort of detailed fabric! I accidently got my necklace caught when doing a fast turn once!!
I really like Kelly Falconer's things- I put her chevron skirt on one of my very rare blog wishlists in the summer!!! xx
Oh and re the 'being terrible at first' thing. My dance teacher said that he taught this guy who was terrible for a long time but he doggedly persevered and now he is actually a swing dance teacher!

I'd love a bit of prayer please for energy and discipline to get things done but to be able to get a good night's sleep. My sleep is very broken recently and I am very tired!!x

I adore this look, you look so adorable in this outfit!

I think that its amazing that you decided to pursue fashion! I am in a dilemma because I am unsure whether I should pursue fashion design or a traditional career. I would love to be in your prayers so that I can be guided by God to go in the right direction :)

I love seeing you super dressed up! You look gorgeous! And I love everything about this outfit: the earrings, shoes, top, skirt. Sequins and tulle are my obsession. I'm going to be learning swing dancing starting next week and I keep wondering what I will wear.

Lauren! Ooohhh so fabulous! You're a complete bombshell. Once again, you've worked your magic to perfection. <3

I wore one of the tulle skirts in plum to our Contra dace, and the way this skirt moves when dancing is just so perfect, isn't it?
