Sneaker Ball

Attending fundraisers is always a pleasure.  I really enjoy supporting local causes and especially when they benefit children.  There is nothing more heartwarming than knowing you can do something to make a difference in a child’s life.

The Sneaker Ball was a benefit to raise money for Jaden’s Ladder and their “Ballers to Scholars” Program.  This ball took place at the beautiful Empire Restaurant & Lounge in Boston.

This time of the year we have plenty of snow and temperatures ranging in the 40’s and lower in the evening.  So deciding what to wear wasn’t hard, but keeping warm was!!  You know me, I’ll practically wear anything for fashion, so I wore my shorts!

When wearing sneakers I don’t normally think of dresses, but plenty of ladies rocked this look.  I like to be sporty when I can, so shorts and a tank worked perfectly with my wedge sneakers!

Gala Style

Bright Lights Big City Gala at the Ritz-Carlton on Boston to raise money for Jaden’s Ladder.  This foundation is very special as they aid women and children move on after being in a domestic abuse life cycle.  I was honored to attend this event and with such a classy location, you can wear that sequence dress, big bold sparkly necklace, all under a gold coat!

Dress by Tory Burch, necklace from Fashioneta, coat by Burberry, and glasses by Tom Ford.  Went with dark blue nails, gold and black earrings, big curly hair and black shiny shoes.  What a fun way to support a well deserved cause.

Getting Ready for Denim & Diamonds

I’m attending a fund raising event called “Denim & Diamonds” this Saturday.  The cause is to to support, Jaden’s Ladder a non-profit organization that helps abused women in the area not only with shelter but an entire support system that enables long term guidance and self-reliance.

It is in the evening and there will be dinner and a silent auction.  I always love wearing something a tad more formal or dressy.  I didn’t want to just wear a dress and add diamond necklaces, and I love a good challenge when it comes to dressing up.  I picked up this raw silk skirt that has a lot of charm and I’ve let my imagination run wild from there!

Since the raw silk is silvery-gray I knew I had to figure out how to add some bling to the waist area.

I picked up this band of diamond-like 2 yard “Bling” at a local craft store.

The skirt is long and the best way for me to balance it’s length is to wear a tight cami.  In this case, it’s from Vicki Secret’s so it’s bit skimpy than I’m comfortable with (COLD).

The rhinestones and cami are goldish so I picked up some diamond bling to add.

I used tweezers and jewel glue and added the diamonds throughout the other stones for contrast.

I’m wearing a nude shoe without bling as the skirt is long and has a slight poof at the base.

Piling up the necklaces to cover up!

rough texture, the jacket has a lot of texture and stuff on it to give the jean jacket rough texture

In order to keep myself warm from my skimpy lace cami, you guessed it~ a denim jacket!

Hair inspiration to keep all the attention on the diamond bling!
Like with any great party, getting ready is a process.  All good things take time.  Figuring out the rest of the details will come this week.  Nails, necklaces, purse, make up, lashes….it all adds up to one gorgeous night.
The final looks will be posted and as will others from the evening!!  I can’t wait to see how creative people get with this fun theme!  {wink}
