Glam Circus

This past weekend, Nick and I attended the 25th annual Jump Back Ball fundraiser for Playhouse Square. I blogged about this back in November, and created an inspiration board for the look and feel of the event. I settled on two things: I wanted a 60s look and LOT of glitter. 

And frankly, what better way to get all that glitter than a full-on glitter gown. I ended up picking the Badgley Mischka Glitz Gown, and pairing it with a pair of statement earrings, a cocktail ring, and blush pink, neutral shoes. 

Two tips if you Rent The Runway

1. Always have a backup-- a second best in the event your dress has logitistical/fit issues

2. Be VERY honest about your size and shape, and when in doubt size up. You get a free second size, use it. 

Turned out this choice was a little bit of a good-news/bad-news situation.

Good news: I wore a similar dress last month and had to size down for this one (yay for resolutions)

Bad news: At least 7 other women had the same idea about the glitter gown. But hey, this isn't Hollywood, and instead of freaking out, we just took pictures together! In all seriousness, my fellow glitter-girls all looked fabulous, and frankly, we all looked very different!

We don't know each other, but at some point, all 3 of us were standing back to back, in the same dress! LOL

We had such a great time Saturday night- the bands were ridiculously fun. The main stage band, Radioactive, played a really energetic set of Top 40 songs, which included a LOT of 90s, so obviously I was in heaven.

Kudos to my friends Allison Peltz who co-chaired the planning committee, and Adam Fishman who chaired design along with Rebecca Minerd (not pictured) and the rest of the volunteers, staff and really everyone involved, for putting together another fabulous night! 

So many friends having so much fun!

Fun fact: my hair stylist Carolina at Tease sewed my half-up look into place so I rocked my messy bed head all day Sunday, including the grocery store! 

I don't often get this glam on a Saturday night, but I would be lying if I said it wasn't fun to get really dressed up for a night on the town. It was like my very own Oscars, and I enjoyed EVERY second!
