MCLV Style: Gowns & Formalwear

I recently attended the San Francisco Ballet’s Annual Gala – Not only do I adore the ballet and look forward to getting a chance to support them, but I’ll also take any excuse to get all dressed up. Gowns & formalwear make me extremely happy!

And what’s even better than getting all dressed up for a fun night of glamour & fabulous people watching? Doing it with your girlfriends!

I told you all about the fabulous San Francisco-based company Stylend recently and I was excited to try them out for this event. I tried on a number of gowns and narrowed it down to this lacely black BCBGMaxAzria number.

Next time I may go for something a little more high impact, but this one fit like a dream so I couldn’t pass it up!

Speaking of high impact – I’d like to introduce my gorgeous dates for the evening – The stunning boudoir photographer Rhiannon of Alloria Winter and fabulous food photographer Jessica of Jessica Michelle Photography.

Do YOU enjoy going all out for a formal events?
