Our highlights from the evening were meeting celebrity barrister Gerald Kean, guest of honour on the night as well as bumping into lots of familiar faces as well as making new friends.Style spotting was top of our list and the ladies and gentlemen really wowed us on the night. What an amazing night and for such a good cause. An all-round success and we can’t wait for next year’s event.We purchased our dresses from The Julien Boutique in Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre in Dublin over a year ago. Yes, we wore these dresses to the races, but why not re-wear them?Some might say we have committed a Faux Pas. But we beg to differ. Shamelessly wearing the same dress twice? Well not us. Think about what you have in your wardrobe. With a few alterations and tweaks you can really make a difference to an outfit.And by doing so you are saving money. Wearing something again and again gives you the opportunity to restyle your entire look.How about adding different accessories such as jewellery, bag, belt, shawl or even a change of shoe colour. Or alternatively dust off your sewing machine and get to work!And if you’re not up to scratch with your sewing skills maybe find someone who is good dressmaker, giving you the opportunity to transform the style completely, make it strapless, add straps, change the length, the list is endless.We altered the dresses from a jewel neckline to a Bardo neckline which makes the dress very feminine, drawing attention to the shoulders and neck.On reflection, we preferred this neckline because we found this silhouette more flattering. We paired back the look and minimized the amount of accessories wearing simple, clutch, silver diamond earrings and nude shoes.The summer race was our opportunity to get inventive with our style. We wanted something bright and impactful. So we decided to colour block light blue and canary yellow. We sourced yellow material to create a sash so to add a pop of colour and then matched our shoes.Our hats were made by Harper’s Hats Millinery based in Cork.  We opted for gold clutch, pearl earrings and red lips to finish off the look.Remember if you love it, wear it again and again to your hearts content.Dawn and Davinia, Two Glamorous Knights xxSEE ALSO – Two Glamourous Knights: The Pencil Skirt – hugging me in all the right places WhatsApp Twitter Two Glamorous Knights: Great fashion the Gala Charity Ball and making the most from the same dresscenter_img Facebook By Two Glamorous Knights – 19th March 2018 WhatsApp Pinterest Community Home Columnists Two Glamorous Knights: Great fashion the Gala Charity Ball and making the… Columnists Council Previous articleProperty Watch: How much will a three bedroom house cost you around PortlaoiseNext articleSporting fixtures cancelled as snow plays havoc once again Two Glamorous KnightsSugar, spice and all things nice are just a few ingredients that have created Two Glamorous Knights.
