Off to the Gala

This week is holiday fashion week, featuring attire for different events each day.

If you have been invited to a holiday black tie affair or gala calling for an evening gown, it has probably been on your calendar for weeks! There are so many gorgeous gowns, especially in beautiful jewel tones, this holiday season. However, I am going to save our colorful apparel for some other days this week.

I am going to share 2 always elegant gowns but I am going to give to give them "a little kick."

The first is a true black dress. It is Halston with a beautiful draping.
As beautiful as this gown is, you may find it a little boring, shall we say? Since this gown does have a slit, let's move the party to our feet...
Add some holiday sparkle in these Kate Spade's OR kick it up another notch with these Louboutins. (very little difference so they are their for your picking)
Now, as much as I love that Halston, I prefer something a little softer.
I personally would choose this Notte by Marchesa...
I put great thought in my shoes and how they work with my outfit. With long gowns, I do want my shoes to be seen but I don't want my gown catching on any adornment. To go with this beautiful gown, I thing I need something more than a black pump. These satin slippers do the trick. Well they aren't really slippers...
They have a beautiful satin bow that doesn't extend wider than the back of the shoe.
Simple and elegant.
Do you have a gala or affair calling for a full length gown on your calendar this season? If so, please share what you are attending and what you will be wearing.

Come back tomorrow for "Cocktails, Anyone?"

Hi there! That was me that removed the comment above. I posted without being signed in, so I thought I better correct that! I love the gowns, but especially the Marchesa. It would work much better for me with my body shape. And, girl, those Kate Spade & Louboutin's...wow, simply wow.

That was a fun post! Those shoes are killers! I have seen all in person except for the Halston. There is a pair of the finest tiny gold tone glitter platforms that I can't wear but Brooke rocks them from Aldo. If I could have found a picture of those, I would have hunted for a perfect dress for those! They are in our Aldo store here but not online. If I can hunt those down or a pair similar, you may see them in a post later this week!

The Marchesa gown is simply stunning! I would LOVE to wear it to one of the gala's in Aiken!
