What I Wore: Shoes (Madden via Famous Footwear), Evening Gown (Sung Boutique)

This past weekend we got into our finest finery and like Cinderella and her fella headed to a ball!

The Boy and I take dance lessons provided by our local Eagles Club. Each Christmas, larger dance studios up in Billings (the nearest actual city) put on Christmas Balls, that we're encouraged to attend. Wait- pretty dresses, live music, and The Boy wanting to dance the night away? Uh-huh- lots of encouragement needed there!

I love the Old Hollywood Glamour this evening gown seems to exude. It's actually quite daring with a lot of skin, but the cut keeps it classy. I purchased this online from Sung Boutique and it fit like a glove. Sung Boutique actually has a ton of gorgeous gowns, most priced under a hundred and fifty, many under a hundred! Besides this one, one of my favorites was a gown that looked like the one Rosemary Clooney wears in White Christmas.

We almost didn't stop for photos; we were so busy dancing the night away! In fact, we managed to dance the Waltz, the Country Two-Step, the Single Lindy, the Cha-cha, the Foxtrot, the Merengue, and the Bolero! Our feet were aching by the end of the evening, but it was so much fun!

Do any of you dance?

P.S. This evening gown has made it on the blog once before too!

  2. oh you are looking all kinds of glamorous! I think that vixen red really does make it look "Old Hollywood", and how fun that you actually got to go to a real ball. I'd love to go to something like that- I'd get to live out all my childhood princess dreams ;)
