It's Ball Season!

Friday, August 15, 2014

Air Force Ball time is getting closer and closer! It is happening so early this year at Charleston. It is just a mere 3 weeks away! I have tried to get my behind in gear and go dress shopping a little early.

Yesterday I went to a upscale boutique style Goodwill in downtown Richmond. Unfortunately by the time I got there, I didn't have much time to look around. I found one nice red dress, but lets just say it was a tight fit in the bosom. I wouldn't have had a good time sitting there the whole night.

I did happen to run up on a beautiful dress in my town's facebook classified ads that I'm going to try to scoop up. I really hope this works out! Did I mention it was beautiful?!

I absolutely love dress shopping, but I hate paying an arm and a leg for a dress that I might wear one time. I found out about a Military Ball Gown Swap, Sale and Giveaway a little bit ago. I think this is a wonderful idea because you can get slightly used gowns to wear and you don't have to pay the full price. I didn't find anything that suited my fancy, or anybody that was in my area. But maybe next year it will work out!

My MilSO friends, where do you go shopping for your gowns for ball?!

    Also, I wanted to let you know that I nominated you for a Liebster Award - I'm sure you've seen them going around! Check it out here if you're interested:
