Hope’s: Fall Styling + Discount Code

We are so excited about this post because it features dresses from one of our all time favorite boutiques, Hope’s!  Hope’s is an affordable clothing boutique with one location in Georgia, as well as their online website.  After we discovered the Hope’s website four to five years ago, we’ve been shopping there ever since!

We honestly can’t say enough good things about Hope’s.  Pretty much everything on Hope’s is under $50, which is awesome!  We don’t like to spend over $50 on clothes too often, so Hope’s prices are perfect for us.  Hope’s has clothing and accessories for any type of woman or occasion.  You can find anything from work out clothes to dresses for formals.  We love Hope’s so much that we follow Hope, the owner, and her daughter, Kelsey, on social media!  They’re both so laid back and fun.  Plus they’ll interact with their followers!  Kelsey does THE BEST Snapchat makeup tutorials (kelseyksnaps)  too!  Trust us, they’re addicting.

Sorority Semi-Formal

Last night I had my last Alpha Delta Pi event of the year, semi-formal. For those of you who aren’t in a sorority or if your sorority doesn’t do a semi-formal, it’s basically like a mini prom. We all bring dates and go on party buses to a location where we dance and eat. For formal we have a full meal, but since it’s semi-formal we just had appetizers. For our formal we wear short dresses that are similar to the dressiness that you would see at a homecoming dance; since this is semi-formal our dresses are a bit simpler.

Our theme for our semi-formal was masquerade so I decided to go with a tight black dress with black and nude lace. I felt that it seemed most fitting for the theme instead of going with a bright spring color. I found my dress online from the boutique called Hope’s. Since it was a masquerade I obviously had to find a mask. It was more challenging than I had initially thought it was going to be to find one, that I not only liked but went with my dress as well. I ended up having luck finding one on Etsy from this shop.

For the event we ended up going a couple of towns over to a ski resort lodge. It was nice that it was closer so that we could spend more time at the place instead of just on the bus. My date for semi-formal was my boyfriend, Michael. We had a lot of fun dancing and just enjoying talking to everyone. It was nice to be able to catch up with everyone before going our separate ways for summer. I had a great time at ADPi semi-formal, but I can’t wait for my boyfriends formal tonight!  Keep a lookout for an upcoming post all about it!!
