It doesn’t take much prodding to get me to go glam for the goods – to do good and to have a good time. So last weekend the hubby and me put on the glitz for the Good to Glamour event. The event, held at the beautiful Parkland Golf & Country Club, brought together a posh group of South Florida’s movers and shakers in business and philanthropy to benefit SOS Village.
SOS Village provides a safe place that children and young adults can call home when they are placed in foster care. The organization’s goal is to inspire children to pursue their dreams despite their past and provide them with a safe and nurturing environment.
The Glamour For Good committee members went all out on the casino themed soiree filled with gambling for charity, cocktails, dining and dancing. The event included raffle prizes and giving opportunities throughout the evening all to benefit the children of SOS Village. See why getting glammed up for an event like this was even more fun?
Going glam for me is exciting, but for many people, it can be a little scary. From too many options to too few styles, I broke down my process into 3 rules to help you go glam for your next event, gala, or even date night!
When I select a look for a big event I have 3 rules:
- Don’t Fade to Black. I never (rarely) wear black. Think of the last evening event you went to? Got a picture in your mind? I bet you are picturing a sea of black. Don’t fade to black – instead stand out from the crowd in eye popping color. Catch the attention of the co-attendees and photographers. Select a color that will flatter your skin tone and hair color in a simple cut. You’ll be the belle of the ball!
- Comfort is king. Whether you are going to a more formal event or a the attire calls for casual chic make sure that you can walk, sit comfortable, network, dance, stand – you get the jest – comfortably.
- The Cut. Make sure that your dress is flattering to you body type and focus on highlighting. Think a great color that will bring out your eyes. Think about where the length of your dress falls to flatter your legs. Think about showcasing your amazing shoulder or a low cut number that tastefully spotlights your decollage. Forget what’s in and go with a cut that looks best on YOU.
There’s no better feeling than knowing your organization truly supports the community. What I loved most about being a part of Glamour for Good, besides our amazing school being a sponsor for the event, was that it is the brainchild of a few super busy, ultra smart, multi-tasking mamas who saw a problem and created a grassroots movement to benefit others. That my friends is #winning. Can’t wait to see how you use my #GlamRules to get dressed! Don’t forget to comment and share it with me!
