I'm so glad to be surrounded by balloons (40,000 of them, in fact!) instead of snow for today's post! Every year, the Rochester-based balloon folding artists known as Airigami put together an amazing exhibition called Balloon Manor, and this year, it's all ocean-themed! They're even holding an event on Friday that's based off of the Enchantment Under the Sea Dance from Back to the Future. Since I can't attend the dance (which is a shame, since there's even going to be a vintage costume contest!), I was able to convince my friend Henry to take some prom-inspired photos with me during the day, when Balloon Manor is open to the public.
The artistry of Airgami's work is truly astounding. They make everything from epic scale sculptures to wearable balloon dresses! I don't have a balloon print dress (shocking, I know), so I opted to wear my Nishe seashell dress and add some vintage accessories. Henry is a vintage fiend, so I knew he would be the perfect partner for these shots (and he kindly did my hair for the occasion, too!).

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
