I do love attending charity events and recently attended the annual Wentworth by the Sea Crossroads gala. I don’t like keeping my look the same and enjoy experimenting with new hair and make up styles. My beaded dress felt appropriate for a Spring event by the water. It was on the shorter side, white and the beads are stitched in a slight chevron style. The shoes stood out and I wanted them to have that bootie feel. When I think of spring make up on my olive complexion I think of bright pink. My toes and fingers along with my lips were covered in a deep pink color. I layered on two long necklaces to give a flapper feel. My hair dresser felt that I needed some pretty bling in my hair, so we stuck with a silvery sparkly flower.

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.

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!
