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.
Love the details of this dress….flowy, light and airy feel. A very easy dress to wear~!

soft pink nails
Dress by H&M
shoes by Alfani
Wore a large pearl ring to pick up the small pearls in my necklace
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!
Skirt by Caren Pfleger Signature
Denim jacket by DKNY Various necklaces piled up
The nude bodysuit is by Victoria Secret. I adore the color, rhinestones & lace!!
‘Ardell’ Fashion Lashes
Hair by Salon Sabeha
‘essie’ ‘good as gold’ and ‘Revlon’ ‘Hearts of Gold FX’ nail polish. Two coats of essie & several of ‘hearts of gold fx’ polish. I made sure no hearts got on as they are so big.
Shoes by Alfani. Antique pearl broach.
Instead of a belt, I wrapped ‘Bling’ around my waist, held together with my broach. ‘Bling’ also used on the center pieces at the event!
Affordable outfits can be created for events!
Once I was invited to the Denim & Dimonds Event I immediately started by outfit wheel.
I went to the Wear House and bought this fab skirt for $25!! I hit the Victoria Secret sale’s rack and found the bodysuit for $17. I knew I needed to cover up, so I dug out my oldie but goodie DKNY jean jacket. I picked up the peace clutch at Fashioneta for $30. My shoes came from Macy’s for $76. I piled on jewelry I already had and placed eye lashes on and painted my own nails. Makeup from Making Faces and hair compliments of Salon Sabeha. At the event, photos were taken by The Chick Who Clicks. Thank you for your wonderful support.
