Gala NIGHTS

172

In the fall, invitations arrive for celebrations, balls and fundraisers galore. These evenings are centered upon a theme and a cause. A level of sophistication sets the tone of it all.

For the gentlemen, a single formal suit can accommodate any black-tie affair. A navy velvet tuxedo is a great update to today’s formal wear.

The ladies may need a bit more variety. She can be haute in pink. Then change it up with some glamour and glitz. Or step out in a charming blossom motif. Try a full skirt and a column dress.

Fortunately, the accessories can carry over from one look to the next.

Please, invest in a shoe that suits you, but not one to distract from the dress. Real or faux, a touch of bijoux hits the final note. So enjoy the champagne and handle the auctions with care.
