I am finally getting around to posting this gorgeous shoot with local designer Lyla Dawn! I first saw her at Utah Fashion Week earlier this year and I fell in love! I’m sure you will too!
If any of you follow me on snapchat then you probably saw the little disaster that happened on this shoot. Actually it ended up not being too bad, but it could have been so much worse! We drove out towards the Spiral Jetty in Utah to shoot, but we didn’t realize exactly how bad the roads would be. Jordan and I had a little accident where we spun off the road and got stuck in a ditch because of the snow! Oopsie! Haha if you follow me at all, you probably also know that I have had the worst luck this month with cars…I got side swiped on the freeway in early January, got a flat tire in my rental on the way home from another shoot, and this little incident…sooo needless to say, I feel like I probably shouldn’t get into a car anymore! We were in Jordan’s car, but I feel like I brought on the bad luck. :/
There was no service where we were so we started trying to dig the car out of the snow. After that didn’t work we figured we had better start walking to find service. The Spiral Jetty is kind of in the middle of nowhere. So we started walking…and walking…and walking…no bars! I felt like the guy on that commercial waving his phone in the air to try to get service…o wait, I was that guy. But, you guys will not believe it! After not seeing another car the entire time we were there, a tow truck drove by! What? How in the world did we get that lucky? Plus he didn’t even charge us! #blessed
Like I said, it could have been much worse! I was worried we were going to have to sleep in the car if it got too cold and dark to keep walking. But we got the car out and were able to get some shots! Hallelujah!
This dress is from Bling It On Dress Rentals. I thought it was perfect for Valentine’s or a Sweethearts Dance, but it also kind of makes me think of Star Wars for some reason? Anyone else? I love the flowing panels and how unique the neckline is. Bling It On has tons of cocktail and formal dresses available to rent! We all know how much money buying a dress costs, and you only get to wear it once anyway! If you are in Utah, I suggest visiting them if you have any upcoming events or dances!
