Best Dressed: Beaux Arts Ball

1. Lauren Hoffman // 2. Jackie Tuttle

I covered Baton Rouge Little Theater’s Beaux Arts Ball last month, which celebrated the best of the theater’s 66th season as well as its outstanding volunteers. I ran into these chicas at the cocktail reception and they looked so cute that I had to snap a photo.

Lauren’s lace, citrine dress is really on trend; and the gold wreath brooch at the bust is a great touch. And Jackie looks really put together in her one-shoulder, coral number. I really like that both chose gold as a neutral shoe option. I think it’s a good departure from taupe or camel, instantly making a dress feel more cocktail-y. Bottom line: they both look beautiful!

P.S. – A BIG thank you goes out to Lauren Hoffman and Jackie Tuttle, who allowed me to take their photos for a blog, which, at that point, was imaginary. You ladies were my first attempts at cut outs in Photoshop. Let’s just say that I admired graphic designers before starting this blog…now, I am in absolute and total awe of them.

Please bear with me, folks—the cut outs and cool Photoshop-y layouts will hopefully improve (they have to eventually, right?!).

And now, a perfect segue way into our quote of the day:

“I feel about Photoshop the way some people feel about abortion. It is appalling and a tragic reflection on the moral decay of our society…unless I need it, in which case, everybody be cool.” –Tina Fey, Bossypants

Please don’t be offended or read too much into that. I simply laughed the first time I read it.
