Big Gala on Saturday Night

Most of you who know me, realize that dressing up for me is putting on my newest pair of jeans and a nice top. So when Jim and I were invited to a fund raising gala for St. Catherine of Siena Catholic School, I got a little anxious about the dress code. Since it was for a good cause, I couldn't refuse to go. So I went through my closet and found my dress:

The Dress
Now this dress is from the 80's but some things just never go out of style. I have lost my confidence when it comes to fashion; i just wear what I like, hats and all. But I was delighted and surprised at getting so many compliments.

Dancing Shoes
Ha! I call them dancing shoes, but I haven't been dancing in quite a while. It is difficult for me to wear heels, although I love them. But these were comfortable for walking around the ballroom looking at items for the silent auction, while sipping my martini. :o)

Baby Photo Dress
This is one of the items that we bid on and we got it! I was excited because a lot of photographers use them on babies for a cute look. Flora Bella has a few.

The night was wonderful, great fun, food, drink and fellowship. All for a good cause. And I made it through the night. LOL

Well, the dress is beautiful, but I'm more impressed that you can still fit into something from that far back. You must really eat right and exercise!

That baby dress you won is adorable! Bet you can't wait to photograph a precious little girl in it.

Your dress is gorgeous. Would love to see a shot of you wearing it! I too am impressed you can still wear a dress you wore in the 80s! You have to find a baby to dress in that adorable baby dress!

I can't wait to find a little baby girl to photograph.
Hope your trip went well.
