A rare event happened last night. Steve and I got to go out to a ball. Not just any ball and certainly not black tie.
The Op Shop Ball is run to raise money for children who are in foster care. The idea is that you buy your outfit at the charity shop, which helps the shop raise money, and then after the night you donate it back again. There were auctions on the night too and donations aplenty.
Steve and I donned our finest outfits (I had a bit of an 80’s vibe happening) and set off to the casino where the ball was being held. The cab driver dropped us off at the complex, but nowhere near the ballroom so we had to walk through, past restaurants , getting some very strange looks along the way.
We knew when we were in the right place when our outfits started looking normal and even a little tame by comparison. Jerry Hall was there, looking fabulous, and I have to admit to feeling a little start struck. I was very surprised that she wasn’t as tall as I had expected.
We danced the night away, had an amazing time and most importantly a lot of money was raised for a very worthy cause. We will definitely be going again next year.
