Tuesday, Tuesday...

Today is a creating kind of day!!!  For all my followers out there... I have been designing like crazy the last couple of days.... and yes there is a reason for all the new flurry of activity here at Beloved Keepsakes.... but you will just have to wait a few days to hear more about that!!!

Today I thought I would share with you with my ball gown and spouse breakfast dress...  ah yes, it is that time of year again... We have a military formal coming up.... and this time I decided to be smart.... last year it was over 100 degree's at the beach where the ball is held.  So this year I went with a short dress. 

Here is my dress -

But it is actually in this color -

And here are my shoes -

I think it will look good with Hubby's dress blues.

Then on one of the mornings there is a spouse breakfast that is held at one of the upscale historical hotels - so I plan to wear this little dress (but I think I am going to pull the belt off of it) and at the prodding of my BFF and my Hubby I have paired it up with a pair of red wedge heels.

Which brings me to my next question - do you every wear shoes that don't match (color wise) what you are wearing?!?!? I can honestly say I never have... and it makes me a little uncomfortable.  This pop of red that doesn't match a blue and white dress!!! But hey what do I know?!?!?  What are your thoughts???

Well I think that is it for today... I am off to continue my design process!  Hope your week is shaping up to be a good one!!

Until Next Time!

Yes, do it all the time. Red, does match the dress Lori and the flag! You will look awesome! No need to be nervous. You could wear red earrings, a red belt or purse if it would make you feel better.

I'm with you, I would never have thought to pair that dress with red shoes but I think Hubby and BFF are right - those red shoes would look really cute with that dress (which I love by the way). It's a more casual affair, the dress and shoes both scream summer and I think the red-white-blue combo is great anyway!

I with Ginger and Julie, the shoes will be great! I also like the idea of more red accents, such as earrings, necklace and/or purse! have fun :)
