Holiday proposal

Today's post is all about the fantasy. Brilliant Earth, an ethical diamond company invited me to participate in their style challenge, by choosing a piece that best reflects my personality, and creating a look.

This antique inspired Hudson engagement ring is said to befit someone who loves vintage dresses and thrift store shopping, and I will not argue - I love it. I decided the rose gold was more my style than the white gold, and this is my dream outfit... if this ring were to be slipped on my finger during a fabulous holiday soiree.

  8. That ring! Oh, where do I even begin? Brilliant Earth was definitely right about the type of person who would love it - it's such a stunning piece, particularly because it's done is rose gold. And it matches the dress and blush coat you paired with it just perfectly. I have to admit, I may be swooning a little over this look :)
