Finding the Right Dress For a Holiday Ball

After days and days of going through pictures of dresses to wear to the
Court of Six Flags Holiday Ball at the Victoria Country Club, I have
finally found the dress I want ...
And here it is.  It is the same Ann Taylor dress that Kate Hudson
wore to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation Hot Pink Party
last April in New York City.

Here is Kate in the dress.  

I think this one will work for me.  I am petite and slim and I like to
keep my style sleek so that it does not overwhelm me.  Mom thinks I should
wear my shoulder length blonde hair up, but I think I will wear it down
as Kate did.  However, I would wear it up if I had chosen this other
Ann Taylor dress.

I almost went with this dress, and still love it, but I have other strapless dresses 
and my legs are really my best feature.  I am tempted to get this one too
since they are both specially priced right now, but really how many 
black tie events to I get invited to???

I plan on keeping the jewelry very simple.  I have a large vintage rhinestone
cuff and I will look for some knock out earrings.  Oh and shoes ~ I need to
find a great pair of shoes too.  At the moment I don't look the least bit
sophisticated or elegant.  I am still wearing my work out sweats from
this morning's work out :-)  I am pre-tweaked!

Bentley are you excited about seeing your mama and daddy
all dressed up in black tie attire?  Lately you have only been
seeing mama in shorts and tee shirts.  I know.

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
