This is my first post of the New Year! I was just thinking this weekend that exactly one year ago I was contemplating whether or not to make a blog. Six months ago I took the leap into achieving my dreams and created my very own website. That's crazy! Creating a blog has opened so many doors for me, and helped me gain a tremendous amount of confidence. I love writing and critiquing outfits. A lot of people think that fashion is very superficial and vein, but it isn't. Fashion is so much more than the superficial perception people give it. Fashion is a form of art. Its more than who's wearing what, or the number on the price tag. I love this industry. The Little Lace Dress came so far in 2014. I was a finalist in Teen Vogue's Tresemme contest and made an appearance on their social media, I created my own Youtube channel, and lastly my blog has reached close to 20,000 views. That's incredible! None of this would be possible without my readers. Whether it's 5 or 5,000, I am so blessed for each and everyone of you. I cannot wait to see what this next year has in store for us!
In this outfit I am wearing a new dress I just got for Christmas. I'm not sure if any of you are familiar with Shabby Apple, but they sell the cutest stuff! I purchased this dress, and a little lace dress (you'll see it soon haha). Their clothing fits perfectly. It hugs you in all the right places, and is especially great for tall girls (like myself). I paired this shiny dress with Anthropologie pumps, and an Anthropologie sparkly belt. I wore this outfit to my cousins wedding a few weeks ago, and received so many complements! I love this dress!!

My name is Emma Engilman. The goal of my blog is to encourage self confidence and stray away from societies definition of "beauty." I refuse to retouch my appearance in Photoshop, so enjoy my flaws because they make me-- me!
