Hi lovelies! We recently had the privilege of getting all prettied up to attend a charity Christmas Ball.

We are so excited to share our fancy pants looks with you all!

We both love things that sparkle and shine, and we definitely incorporated that into our unique evening styles.

We apologize in advance, as we had to resort to our iPhones the night of the event, so the photo quality in this post is not ideal.

Ange’s Look

Everything about this classic Badgley Mischka gown was perfect!

 {If you don’t feel like dropping hundreds of dollars on a gown you may only wear once, this gown is available to rent! on Rent The Runway. The rental process is so convenient and easy, I promise.

The back of the gown was to-die-for! I felt radiant and elegant. I kept the rest of my look relatively simple with a classic undo and a red wine lip and nail for a pop of color.

My gold crystal drop earrings are J. Crew

The beautiful gold sequin fabric was surprisingly comfortable. I could easily dance the night away, but it was form fitting in all the right places to help me embrace and show off my curves.

Although I love sharing with you, my handsome arm candy is allll mine!

Doesn’t he look so dapper? He even sported black cuff links and shirt studs with little touches of gold to coordinate with me.

I decided to break the winter white rules again and pair the gown with snowy white Candies stiletto pumps.

Allie’s Look

If you didn’t know by now already, I’m definitely more on the edgy side when it comes to fashion and I wanted to be adventurous and have some fun with my evening look.

My cocktail dress by Sherri Hill was purchased from Bridal Elegance.

With the intricate and detailed neckline of the dress, I decided to sweep up my hair with a fabulous braided ponytail.

Shout to Michelle of Ambridge Rose Spa and Salon for my hair and makeup!

My amazing lace-up Natlia shoes are Steve Madden.

My mink stole is truly a vintage piece, it was my grandmother’s.

I kept the rest of my accessories basic and neutral, with a nude nail color and clutch, and silver sparkly jewels.

My sweetheart matched me perfectly with his colorful bow tie. He is my best accessory.
