I'm going to a BALL tomorrow! - pics up

Yes, a proper black tie ball. I've never been to anything like that before!!

This is all totally last minute, we weren't bothering to go (tickets are $60 per person ish) but DH has been majorly bullied by all the women in his office about not taking his new wife and he caved yesterday. It's a ball organised by the hospitals' trust for the county, all the proceeds are going to the air ambulance so most of his office is going. Of course that meant I suddenly needed an outfit for a ball in less than 72 hours!! Can you say stress?

Luckily I've managed to persuade my only evening dress that it can fit a bra under it. I wore it in Vegas last year with no bra and ended up in screaming agony as the entire weight of my chest - which is rather large shall we say - was pulling on the halter neck bit and focused on the hook and eye on the back of my neck. OW! DH is now in a mad race to try and find a tux, hoping he can borrow his colleague's spare one.

I'll hopefully put a picture up this weekend!

Wow! A real BALL! That sounds really cool.

I can relate to the wardrobe malfunction, glad you got the dress/bra to play nice together. I'm sure you will be much more comfortable! Lucky you had something to wear!

Have fun!!

You will have a wonderful time - can't wait to see pictures!! When I was in high school I belonged to a charity organization that had a black tie ball every year and it was so fantastic! There were military men that came too, in their dress uniforms, and everyone else in gowns and tuxedos. The music, the food - great memories! Have a BLAST!!

Had a great time at the ball, here's our official portrait that's appearing in the local society magazine.

Us during the meal:



One more for luck, here's me at about 2am after the ball, also after several drinks so I look a bit worse for wear and my hair has started to collapse! My dress is now being held up by safety pins (the halter broke on the dance floor, luckily I cought it before I became indecent):
