What to wear to a gala: Wine Women and Shoes 2018!


Aloha my friends! There is nothing more gratifying than having fashion and kindness get together for a beautiful cause like a fundraising to help raise funding for foster kids in Washington state. This is an annual event in Seattle you can not miss, it is when fashion and Aloha souls get together for an amazing cause so Who, When and Where??

Wine, Women, and Shoes is a unique event mixing fashion, fun, and philanthropy, dedicated to raise awareness for the urgent needs of foster families in Washington state. There are 1655 children who are in need of a foster family, due to the shortage of foster homes these kids are not receiving the care they need, some are sleeping in DSHS offices and hotel rooms.
This fundraiser is in benefit of Olive Crest, a non-profit organization dedicated to preventing child abuse, treating and educating at-risk children, and preserving the family one life at a time. For over 40 years Olive Crest has been helping families in crisis, provided emergency and long-term shelters, care and provided homes for abused, neglected children from all ages from teen and ages out youth. Provided adoption placement and support, educational support and services, independent life skills training and mentoring, counseling and mental health treatment, and family crisis intervention. Olive Crest vision is to ensure every child has a strong family, and their ultimate goal is to restore broken families. Every day Olive Crest, with the support of donors and caring community members serves 3,000 children and families in need. For more information visit www.olivecrest.org.


When and Where: This event will take place on Friday, November 9th at the Fairmont Olympic in Downtown Seattle at 5pm. Tickets here!

Now, What to wear to a gala like this? I got you covered. Attending an event like this could be the highlight of your year, so you do have to be dressed accordingly to the dress code and be ready to stand out. A black-tie Gala means a very dressy affair where men dress tuxedos or formal suits and women should wear long formal gowns rich in bold colors that will flatter your figure. Your outfit should say elegant and sophisticated and that doesn't mean all black and boring. It means classy and feminine 😉 
I have put together a few ideas and looks together for you. Always keep in mind in choosing a very small purse, preferably a clutch and you can go big with statement jewelry!!! 

Look 1: A classic bohemian.


         
        

Look 2: Wearing black and statement accessories!

         

Look 3: A modern stylish atttire. (I see myself all over this look)

         

Look 4: Bold and rich statement colors.

         
        
Look 5: A feminine floral touch.

         

Which of the 5 different looks its your favorite???

Hope this ideas help you make a final desition when getting ready for a formal Gala event, and do not forget to check this amazing fundraiser evening that starts at 5pm followed by shopping, a fashion show, a silent and live auction, delicious bites and wine testing!!!
