A Gala Evening

This past weekend, my husband and I attended the Miami University 19th Annual Wine Tasting Gala & Auction.  It's become a slight tradition (6 years straight!) with our wonderful friends who live in Ohio.  We definitely look forward to the fermented grape-fueled fun, and I for sure look forward to the chance to dress up and put together, yet another, fun ensemble!

For this year's Gala, I decided to go a little bit out there.  I've worn this dress before, to Liz's wedding, and figured it would be the perfect backdrop to a bunch of neon accents.

Photo Disclaimer:
I apologize for the bad lighting in these pictures.  My camera's flash seemed to have gone on strike that night!  Any pictures had to be taken with a camera phone. :(







Here is a set of the items that I put together for this evening out.

Closet lessons learned...
1. Check the camera status before you leave home.
2. Neon works perfect with navy!
3. Navy dress, navy tights and navy shoes are an awesome monochrome look. 
A great alternative to black!

  2. Nice outfit! I like how the thin yellow belt adds a little zest to the look. Can I add a dress suggestion for your readers too? http://www.missesdressy.com/al1463-dress-mignon-collection-p-12219.html ;)
