The Red & White Ball

Last Saturday Hubby and I attended the Red & White Ball benefitting the Blood and Tissue Center Foundation of South Texas.

I posted my favorite black tie affair dresses last week in anticipation of the event.

Ultimately, I chose the red Ralph Lauren gown. This dress is extremely comfortable and the material is thick, which means it will last throughout the years! I love the rich, vibrant red color of the fabric -- although the color is not as bright as it appears online.

Not the best quality of photo -- we were in a major hurry getting out the door, but -- y'all get the general idea! :)

I was chatting with Kir a few days before the event and she asked me what I was going to do with my hair. I am terrible with hair, so I responded "I have no idea -- I guess blow dry it!"

She recommended checking out a local beauty school for an inexpensive up-do. Thanks Kir!

I made an appointment at Paul Mitchell The School and had a wonderful experience. My stylist was energetic and passionate about her future career. I was really happy with the end result and for only $25 it was definitely worth it! I would highly recommend hitting up your local beauty school for a fancy up-do for your next formal event! 

It was a fabulous night filled with an amazing dinner, dancing, catching up with old friends and meeting new ones. 

Now I just need to find another event to wear this dress to!
