Steal My Style: "Black Tie" Event Attire
Updated: Jun 6, 2018
Red Dress Gala is an annual philanthropic event that my sorority, Alpha Phi, puts on to raise money for Women’s Heart Health and increase awareness about Women’s Cardiac Care. It is an incredible night that consists of dinner, dancing, live and silent auctions and of course red dresses! This year at our 11th Annual Red Dress Gala I decided to spice things up a bit and wear a red jumpsuit with nude heels. I finished off the look with gold fingernails, red toenails and my absolute favorite red lipstick.
Being a senior in Alpha Phi, I decided to go the extra mile for my last Red Dress Gala as an active and get completely dolled up. This meant the whole shebang, spray tan, false eyelashes and getting my nails done. Go big or go home, am I right! 😂
Now, if you’re someone like me who loves dressing up but also strive for comfort I highly recommend looking into jumpsuits for your next “Black Tie” Event. I can honestly say this is one of my favorite trends to date because even though I’m a total girly-girl I don’t always enjoy wearing dresses (ladies, you know the struggle!) So, scroll on down to my outfit, nails and false eyelash deets below and hopefully it will provide you with some inspiration for your next big event. I know formal events can get intimidating but with proper preparation, I promise you will be feeling good AND looking good! Thanks for reading hauties 💋
(My Claddagh ring is from Dublin, Ireland but all of my other rings are from Kohl’s. Exact styles aren’t available anymore but if you like wearing silver definitely look into Kohl’s rings. And make sure to get Sterling Silver or Silver 925 to prevent your fingers from turning green!)
(I have been going to this nail salon FOREVA. They have super affordable services, the nail techs are all extremely friendly and I have always left happy with my manicure! I highly recommend checking them out if you are local to the Twin Cities 😊)
