a formal in my future

I will be attending a formal, black tie affair this fall.

One Big Event is a "benefit celebration" for the Hartford Gay and Lesbian Health Collective. The event will be held on November 14 at the Hilton Hotel in downtown Hartford.

Some of my trans friends are attending and asked me to join them. This is a big local event and besides the GLBT crowd, there usually are local politicians and celebrities in attendance.

Like I said, it is a formal affair and I have "nothing" to wear. That is not true; I just have to decide what to wear from the "Staci Collection." I have a couple of vintage items I have never worn out and I am seriously considering wearing them. Then again, something new and to-die-for may come along and catch my attention

I have a lot of time to make up my mind!


  1. Hmmm... I wouldn't call it a "Black Tie" event. How about an evening dress event? :-)

    Actually to be correct, it is "Semi-Formal"

  2. Diana --- The home page of the One Big Event Web site reads "Formal Attire Encouraged." (That's enough encouragement for me!)

  3. Staci,
    If you are encouraged enough to go with the "Formal Attire," I say GO SHOPPING! Shoes, Jewelry, and an Evening Gown. Encouragement to dress is also an encouragement to shop.

    Of course we will all want to see what you got and how great you look.

    Go for it!
