Posted: Need Three Ball Gowns

Ballgowns and Ann Arbor do not go together, but yes, believe it or not, we are being taken to two formal events in the next two months--Red Cross Ball and St. Joseph Holiday Ball, and then optimistically, the Presidential Inaugural Ball in January. My standby is my St. John Knit long skirt and 2-3 elegant jackets. These jackets are beautiful and special, but not too memorable. Unless I want to wear a teen homecoming dress, my other options are "0".

Here are few pictures from the St. Joe Ball last Dec. The theme was Casablanca and we raised $600,000. This year the theme is Winter Wonderland and our goal is $1million. I have the honor of being the Bathroom (Lounge) Decorating Chair--actually is really a big deal--really. We have to transform sports arena bathrooms into a place that people spending $1250 a couple would find fitting. If you have any thoughts, I would really appreciate it.

Below are some pictures of the 2007 Ball where we created Rick's Cafe with Turkish Coffee,etc.

This is a basketball arena at Eastern Michigan University.

What fun!! Ball gowns are often tough to find, but I know you will be able to find far to many once you start looking. If you email me I can try and help you with bathroom ideas!!!

Hopefully we can have some wonderful discussions about Mad Men - esp. Don Draper ;)

I couldn't wear it b/c it's silk, but I love this look from RL:

Did you look while you were shopping in Chicago?

Thanks Mom X 2 (3) and Preppy Vegan. I did look while I was in Chicago but very little. Not sure what I need--and sometimes I just have trouble focusing. Love the RL!
