What’s the first question a girl asks herself when she gets invited to a big party or event?

WHAT AM I GOING TO WEAR???

My good friend and fellow blogger Cynthia Smoot, OhSoCynthia,  asked me to be her date for Cattle Baron’s and I said… YES!

Cattle Baron’s Ball is the largest single-night fundraiser in the world for the American Cancer Society. They’ve raised almost $60 million since 1974. They do great work.

And…there’s a lot of bling with the boots…so what was I going to wear?

Are you a person who plans your outfit a week ahead?  Or are you like me?  Too many times your closet looks like a disaster area by the time you leave because you’ve tried on everything and nothing you thought would look right did?

I’ve always gotten all my TV and fun clothes from Carla Martinengo Boutique in Dallas. Carla is one of those people who can put things together and make you look wonderful. She came up with the fun fringed Versace dress I wore. I put it with my J.B. Hill boots that I’ve always liked.

One of the first people we ran into was the gorgeous D’Andra Simmons. She always wears the most beautiful, unique clothes.  D’Andra had on a Byron Lars Beauty Mark spectator laser cut ponte dress. That black dress with her luxurious long black hair was a show stopper!

Her handsome husband Jeremy was wearing a fun Scully Skull shirt and ostrich boots from M.L. Leddy’s in Ft. Worth.  The boots belonged to D’Andra’s father, Glenn, and were given to Jeremy after Glenn Simmons died.

Cynthia wore the cutest fringe mini skirt by CUSP at Neiman Marcus, her boots were from The Texas Boot Company, and her beautiful jewelry was designed by her friend Shona.

Shona is the fun girl in my pics with the bombshell blonde hair, tattoo and wonderful long blush pink dress by Andre Yabin, a Dallas based designer. Doesn’t she just look like the coolest chick around?

Richard Rawlings from Discovery Channel’s “Fast ‘N Loud” was there, looking pretty sharp in his jacket. By the way, did you know Rawlings is from the east side of Ft. Worth?

It was a fun night, the hard working Cattle Baron’s Committee raised a lot of money for the American Cancer Society, and I was lucky I got to go!
