Be Mine Ball

Happy Monday readers!

This weekend was so much fun, but also jam-packed!  I slept like a baby last night!

The big event of the weekend was the Prevent Child Abuse Virginia (PCAV) Be Mine Ball.  The event was held at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.  Tickets included an open beer and wine bar, heavy hors d'oeuvres, a live band, silent auction, and LOTS of fun!

Additionally, the crowd was very young--I'd guess a majority of the attendees were between the ages of 22 and 28.  It was really neat to see so many people my age contributing to the community and such a great cause.

Bryce was dressed to impress in a bright cummerbund and bow tie set and bullet studs!

I LOVE this picture, but have got to figure out how to blur that goob in the background!

At one point the saxophonist made his way out into the crowd!

Bryce ran into some VMI buds--the guy on the far left had on the coolest studs, they were all different Richmond landmarks!

CWC, GSS, ABE, BAC

These three have known each other since kindergarten.

By the end of the night the dance floor was HOPPING!

We ended the night at Metro Grill!

All in all the event was an absolute blast--it was great seeing so many Richmond and UVA people in one place and I loved dancing the night away!

As a side note, I took some of y'all's advice and paired the Kate Spade necklace with a gray top on Friday night!

Whatcha think?

What did you do this weekend?  

Have a great day!

  11. LOVE the necklace with the gray top - good choice! Everything looks so great. We had our sorority function but it defiantly wasn't as classy looking as yours! (It was a costume function). Glad you had a good weekend!

  17. Allie, we would be great roommates. On a side note, we should try to meet up at some point in the next year. I might be in Boston in April..I guess that's not really your area haha. But I'd love to visit Richmond soon! Anyway, this event looks like so much fun. Adorable bow tie on your boy :) and you are working it in the gray shirt. I hope all is well and would love a teaching update when you get a minute!

    Btw, I think that necklace with the grey shirt is a definite YES! :)
