That One Dress & iPhone 7 Photos

There are few times in life you get a good excuse to get super dressed up in a long ball gown & when you find a dress that makes you feel pretty fabulous - you keep it in your closet & wear over again as much as possible! I've had this JS Collection dress (exact dress isn't available anymore, but similar styles are still made) for two years now & have worn it 3 times, for a gown - I'd say that's a pretty great ROI! We attended a gala this past weekend and the views outside were so stunning I had to take the opportunity to take some pictures!

It's all an illusion & not see through - I promise!!

I've received a few questions about my pictures recently & I wanted to let you all know that these photos are all taken with the iPhone 7 Plus!! Some are shot in "portrait mode" which I've noted above & other's are just the newer camera quality of the iPhone 7 Plus! The quality is incredible and so on par with any DSLR camera out there! So if you're on the fence about upgrading your phone, definitely do it - worth it! Gary is actually the one with the 7 Plus, I still have the 6 & I'm waiting for the 10 year anniversary phone to come out because that camera is supposed to be even better!! 
I also wanted to touch on my foundation - I'm still using the IT Cosmetics CC Cream & loving it! It's quickly become my holy grail foundation & I'm about to purchase my third tube! It claims to be like your skin only better & is it ever! I use it every day & I hate to say obsessed but it's true! If you like the look of an airbrushed finish - this paired with a pressed powder (I use this MAC powder and have for over 10 years) & you have the perfect base! 
After three wears (also seen here & here) I've added another gown to my closet for an up coming wedding- getting ready to get a ton of wear out of this one too! Do you have that one dress you love to wear to fancy occasions?!

  1. I'm so glad you mentioned your makeup because I was going to comment on how flawless it looks! I have combination/oily skin so would that foundation work for me? Love that you've gotten so many wears out of that dress!

  10. Biana, you look absolutely stunning! That dress is so gorgeous on you, and the color is perfection. I can't believe those pictures were made on an Iphone 7. My hubby has the phone, but I have not had a chance to play around with the camera yet.

  15. This dress looks amazing on you and those photos!!! The portrait mode looks amazing and I'll be due for an upgrade this fall so pretty excited. I don't get why they didn't put this on the smaller phone though... I can't hold that 7 in my hand!! Lol

  16. You look fab, Biana! Such a pretty color dress and I agree- three times for a gown is definitely a great ROI! I also can't believe these pics are with a phone- can't wait for my time to get an iPhone 7!

  19. You look absolutely GORGEOUS in this gown, girlie! I love the berry color, it looks so good on you and I also love the laser design, so different and makes for such a flattering effect. I don't blame you for wearing it as often as you have, it really is a beautiful gown! These photos came out beautifully and I've been noticing that everyone who's used the portrait mode on the iPhone 7 gets amazing quality out of their photos. I haven't really experimented with it before, I'll have to give it a try because sometimes logging around my huge DSLR is just not practical! Thanks for sharing, beauty, and I hope you have a wonderful week ahead!

  24. "I'm just going to wear something from my closet" she said (a basic black dress if I recall). UH...just this "little something"! You look FABULOUS as usual! I have always loved this dress on you and I especially love the color for winter! It definitely brings some life into the room! XOXO, R

  25. You look so stunning! That color is so gorgeous on you and I can see why this was your go-to dress for fancy occasions, it looks amazing on you. I think I'm finally going to try the CC cream, but can't decide on a shade-- what one are you?

  32. You look gorgeous girlfriend! The lighting in these shots and that sun setting!!!! This dress was seriously made for you, the color is perfect. Yes, that is 100% why I invested in the 7 plus over the regular 7 for that portrait mode. It's pretty amazing.
