It was a “White Christmas” at the 2017 IP Ball! White curtains draped from ceiling to floor, crisp linen, jewels and white feather’s were only a few of the wonderful details that set this evening apart from the rest! A live musician entertained at a grand piano to a gathering of impeccably dressed men in suits and gorgeous ladies in sequin gowns! The evening included a six course meal, speeches from IP themselves and of course a lot of mingling! This was our first time attending the Infinite Prosperity Ball (has been hosted all over the world) and hopefully not our last.
You voted and the majority opinion was to see me in a classic gown. This was not a hard feat as classic rings very true to my personal style. I had visions of a red dress so it felt “right” when I found this one. I absolutely love the timeless elegance of this dress. It fit my form perfectly and I love the striking slit! What really amazed me is that it required zero alteration. I had debated a sequin dress since it truly compliments the season but I was happy that I went with my instincts as I was the only lady in red and this kind of gown will never go out of style. And since my gown was a solid color I was able to incorporate some holiday sparkle with my clutch and earrings. It also gave me an excuse to purchase this tan jacket that has been on my wish list. Red and tan are one of the best color combinations in fashion if you ask me!

Since I chose such a bold color Benjamin decided to stick with black and white (he did have some fun with his socks though)! Ben usually finds his dress clothes at Tip Top Tailor and initially went there to purchase a suit but he wasn’t 100% happy with the fit and it would have required more alteration than usual. I urged him to peruse Le Chateau and not at all to my surprise he found his sport jacket, vest and dress pants. And I have to say they fit him to a T! Like my dress, no alterations were needed. Ben is 6’1 with broad shoulders and we have found that he looks best in a “slim fit”. We have also learned that jackets cut just below his hips or lower are ideal as it accentuates his height and emphasizes his lean silhouette. Ben opted for a black tie this time around but I am hoping to see him in a bow tie next. He sure looked dashing in his new suit!!! In fact my favorite part of the entire evening was getting to see him dressed to the nines! I will never stop being amazed that he is “mine” ♥
