Bloggers are Ballers: Two Point Oh! LA Snow Ball

December 27, 2010

Last Christmas day around 4am, I was on the phone with a Saks Fifth Avenue customer service representative requesting the availability of a Nicole Miller chocolate brown confection. I had seen it amongst the holiday sale items on Christmas Eve, dropped it into my online cart, and passed out- waking up to the reality of it being sold out. Fortunately, the nice gentleman tracked one down for me and it lived on the back of my closet door for a whole year. And when I say back of my closet door- I mean- haven’t-really-looked-at-you in-the-face-in-a-year since the back of my door faces one side of my walk in closet since we have an open door policy in there. It wasn’t until the mention of a winter ball that the dress mentioned her name in my mind and took a field trip to the tailor to get her into shape. A few Saturday nights ago I broke her out of door-flower mode and attended the inaugural Two Point Oh! LA Snow Ball in the Penthouse Ballroom within Downtown Los Angeles’ Pacific Electronic Lofts. It was a fun night of seeing friends while playing in the sectioned DIY and Beauty lounges- and all for a fabulous cause- ticket and raffle proceeds of $1,000 were donated to the Downtown Women’s Center.

    I love that you had this dress in your closet for a year and never wore it. I have some dresses that Ive only worn once but I cant bear to part with.
    You look fabulous and I wish I could have been there. It looks like it was a lot of fun.
    Hope you had a Merry Christmas.

    Mmh so at a first glance the “snow Ball” evocation can sound like a (not so appealing for me) promise of “uber Girly/neo Cinderella-esque” GLAM . . . BUT your chocolate dress’ (as soft as scrumptious) content of exquisiteness” (promptly) achieves to contradict this groundless prejudice !!!
    ps: Happy Holidays to you Dear Mel !!!
