Loving Life after 50

When you get to go to a Gala, its time for Rent Frock Repeat I Hope

 I am so excited, I just found out that I have won two tickets to the Governor Generals Performing Arts Gala, held at the NAC in Ottawa on Saturday. A Black Tie Gala with the unique opportunity to rub elbows with some very amazing performing artists. The only down side its Saturday and I ussually take time planning outfits for very special occasions.

  On a serious note I actually do like to plan most times, as an example for the 2017 Convention I found the perfect dress for the Banquet at Rent Frock Repeat. Have I ever mentioned the YTE’s colours are red and black? Well they are, so this is perfect. I am hoping it will look amazing on me and then next July I will know what I am wearing

Great red and black dress rent frock repeat

 BUTTTTT back to today and the fact that I have a major event on Saturday, so I did what every great blogger does, remembered that Rent Frock Repeat was at Blissdom and they really peaked my curiosity but until today I didn’t have the excuse of just dropping in. I took a few minutes at work and when on the site to register, and then I started going crazy saving a bunch of dresses to my wish list.  I realized saving them to a wish list was not going to help me for Saturday so I finally booked an appointment for Friday. I am going in to check out a few Gala dresses and I hope some of my wish list items are in stock, and fit me….

These are my top six choices, what do you think any favourites? Guess which ones I am really attracted too,  the two middle dresses and the grey floral, aren’t they stunning.  Keep your fingers crossed that one of them is in stock and looks fab on me OK ( and maybe they will be so impressed with my blogging and the fact that I am going to the Gala that they will offer me a fantastic deal, fingers crossed.)
Stay tuned for a snapchat review of my selections tomorrow and I can’t wait to share the Gala. Thanks Twenty York Street for this amazing opportunity, can’t wait to mingle

So now back to my real world clothes, today was still cold and damp so I decided to go with my floral Target Skirt and really switch up the look from the last time. Works really well with my Electric Blue Cardi from Giant Tiger and the mesh wedge from Shoe Dazzle doesn’t it.
