What do you do when you get invited to a gala at 4pm when it starts at 6?  Thank yourself for always keeping a clean cocktail dress handy!  Through my work with GLOBE & Allies (my LGBT group at work), I know Eric. Eric called me and asked if I was free to go to a gala that night. Someone cancelled and a spot opened up to attend the GLAAD gala.  GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) is the nation's LGBT media advocacy organization and was started in 1985. The organization was hosting an event called Game Changers and my company had sponsored a table.

So I had 2 dress choices. Considering if I didn't know if it was black tie or just really nice dress, I chose the one above, a black peplum dress, with a lace top.

Excuse the bad iPhone pictures, here's a better idea what the top looks like.

I really wanted to wear this necklace with it, but my gay bff said no :( Who would have known this necklace was too much for a gala?  Oh well, I've worn it to more places than I can name!

I had just ordered THIS STUNNER and had gotten it that day. It's out of stock right now so I'm glad I got it when I did! It was spotlighted in US Weekly and that's how I saw it and I guess why its sold out. I'm saving this dress for a special occasion....like my birthday or NYE! (Or maybe both...ha) Its pretty short, but I can't give it up because its so fun!

The gala was held at the Hilton in Union Square downtown.  

Southwest was a sponsor and they gave everyone a $100 voucher!!!!! Barefoot wine was a sponsor....unfortunately the wine tasted like absolute shit. 

It was hosted by Tamryn Manning (pensatucky from Orange is the New Black). She was either drunk or maybe had snorted something. Or she was really just that ditzy and stupid.

Musical guest was Unique from Glee!

Well, anyways, at least I looked cute!
I had a blast and I was so happy to be invited! It was quite an event :)
