The theme for the event was athletic chic. I don’t know why, but initially I thought, “it should be easy enough, Ill just throw on anything bright with a graphic stripe and Ill be good to go.” I was so calm thinking about it too, until I assessed my closet and realized I didn’t own anything that looked athletic that I could actually wear out. I shouldn’t have been surprised though because I am really not that sporty. I mean I like running, and I enjoy yoga, but I have never really been one to dress sporty on a day-to-day basis.
That was when I knew I had to go to a designer. If you know me well, you’ll know that my go-to designer is Joey Samson. So I gave him a call, and just like that I had a dress to wear!
In case you didn’t know, Joey has been giving me dresses to wear to events since I started going to events. He doesn’t need to ask me what I like because he knows it already. So far, he’s been there to accommodate my every need, and really, he’s been there for me thru thick and thin.
Joey’s inspiration for my sporty chic dress was a scuba suit, and yes, it looked every bit as stylish and elegant as I imagined it. I was all-smiles when I saw the dress, and was practically jumping up and down as I was fitting it. Needless to say, the dress was very me, and I was only too happy to wear it to the ball. Thank you so much Joey!!
