Style It Friday Link Up: Masquerade Ball

Hi Lovelies. Today is the day. The start of the new link-up. I decided to switch it up for 2016 with a Friday link-up. So, here is the start of Style It Friday. Yay!
This perfect little number is a dress from eShakti. I picked this out for our New Year’s Eve. masquerade ball at The Sheraton Carlsbad. I must say, eShakti never disappoints. I ordered this just two weeks before New Years with my custom dimensions, and it arrived a few days before the big night. I was so happy to not have to go with my backup plan.  This dress was gorgeous and could be perfect for a night at the theater, a wedding or any other good reason to dress up.  Unfortunately, this exact dress is not available, but they have a ton of similar options and since you send in your measurements, they fit beautifully.

This was by far one of the best new years.  The masquerade ball was so much fun, and the Sheraton Carlsbad did not disappoint.  They had great food and lots of family fun.  We danced, did crafts and played games.  They do two balloon drops, one at 9pm and one at midnight.  I had to share a few photos because if you are looking for a great family event in San Diego, this is totally one to check out.



 I hope you all had a fun new year.  I’m linking up with the lovely ladies at Jo-Lynne Shane, Elegantly Fashionable, Shopping My Closet, Sydney Fashion Hunter, Living On Cloud NineThe Genesis Feminist, Curly Crafty Mom, Doused In PinkI do Declaire.  Let’s get to the new link up, shall we?
