Dressing for a cause (part 2)

I recently attended the 11th annual “Benefit by the Sea” for Crossroads House in Portsmouth, NH.  Crossroads House provides a safe, transitional shelter and program that helps its residents move with confidence to stable and worthy housing.

Again, it was an impressive event of beautifully dressed people and pretty touches all around.  As I looked around, some were dressed in formal black tie and others in slacks and the ladies were mostly in cocktail attire with some being more or less formal.  But in the Seacoast area, really anything goes.

Last year I was in a long form fitting dress, so this year I went for a short babydoll dress.

Compared to last year, this look felt much more casual.  Last year people were really drawn to my dress.  I like to mix up my looks, as it’s part of my creative process.  Really who cares what you’re wearing to such a well deserved cause.  Overall, what a hit!
