UM-CARD Gala to benefit families with Autism

Hi friends, this fashion post comes along with a socially important message. My hubby and I were graciously invited to University of Miami’s annual gala for their program CARD…thisis a wonderful organization that assists families that are affected by Autism.
It was a fabulous event which included a delicious sit-down dinner, a fantastic silent auction and a lots of applause and appreciation for all the countless people that work everyday to run this program.
The attire was dubbed “Miami Chic” so I wanted to wear something colorful and fun.

This is what I wore:
Nicole Miller Silk Dress- I personally love this dress. It’s so beautiful and because it’s made of silk, it has such wonderful movement. Makes me feel like a princess when I’m walking
Christian Louboutin PVC strap heels- these heels have a “small” heel…only 3.5, so I knew I could stand during cocktail hour and still be able to dance later in the evening
Vintage Gold lame clutch- I love finding vintage items and this bag is no exception
Banana Republic earrings- these earrings matched the slight Middle Eastern motif that the band at the bust line has.

We were so happy to be able to attend and support an organization as wonderful as UM-CARD.
It was a wonderful reminder of what can be accomplished when people bond together for a cause…so whenever possible, try to lend a hand, give some time and support something that you believe in. The most rewarding thing we can do is to help others in need.

Till next time…

    You are very natural. I think even without makeup and nice hair you are still beautiful.
