Marine Corps Ball giveaway featuring Jewelmint & Rent the Runway!

I love giveaways and I figured this was a great reason to throw another one!

I'm attending the Marine Corps Birthday Ball this year, thanks to my friend Emily, in Vegas at the Hard Rock. Most of you are familiar with this ball solely on the fact that people like JT and Mila Kunis has been invited, however, it's more than just a celebrity affair. My dad has gone to a few and Emily's Uncle is one of our active servicemen, so he happily offered to get us tickets.

This is going to be a single woman's paradise. Have you seen an Officer and a Gentleman? So help me God, I'm going to need some serious strength and a chastity belt to get through the weekend. (Just kidding about the chastity belt thing. But you get the point.)

What is it about a man in uniform? It's not that they look just so breathtakingly gorgeous, but when a woman sees a man in his dress blues, it's magical. Not every man is allowed the privilege of wearing the uniform, and it's also apparent that men who are allowed the privilege are true men, who have offered something invaluable to our country: their service.

I imagine this entire trip being something similar to that episode of Sex and the City when it's Fleet Week and a bunch of hot men from the Navy are frolicking around New York in search for women. I can see Vegas being transformed into a Marine Corps paradise, with men in white gloves buying us drinks and offering to dance with us to swing music.

Or it could be a hot mess...

Anyway, here's the deal. I'm going shopping this coming weekend for *the* dress. And I want some inspiration!
