Hollywood Affair

Last night was my first big benefit here with this Junior League. It was a red carpet costume party called "Hollywood Affair"

And I went as Cinderella, complete with glass slippers:

It was a fabulous fundraiser, benefiting Albany Autism Center and The Lily Pad (which provides comprehensive care to sexual assault and child abuse victims & their families.) The silent auction items were all fantastic - everything from complete kid's bday party packages to a $2000 quail hunt! :-D (You wouldn't have believed the bidding war on that quail hunt by a group of husbands who kept out-bidding each other! Yay, south Georgia! ;-))

I was super impressed with the desserts and the band, (who played Southern beach music for the first hour before standard party stuff!!! I almost called my mom all choked up when they played "Be Young Be Foolish Be Happy" by The Tams!) I was so very impressed with how many people went all-out with their costumes. (A sample from the first 30 minutes...) There were quite a number of Holly Golightlys (a la Breakfast at Tiffany's) and Sandy & Danny couples from Grease, but I was shocked that I was literally the ONLY princess! (I was worried that was too obvious! :-P)

My favorite couple was this girl on the left (the golden leg lamp from my most beloved A Christmas Story!) and her husband, who wore Ralphie's bunny suit!!! Here also is my friend Staci as Charlie from Top Gun (her man was Maverick) and Stephanie as the Lost Shaker of Salt (accompanying her husband, Jimmy Buffett.) :-D

Yet again, I love this League and am so thankful to be back to life Southern-style!

PS - I wore eyeshadow for the first time since...last Nov(?) and LOOOVED it! I might get on a little makeup kick, again... Maybe...
