Party Wrap

One of my favorite aspects of our life in Dallas was our robust charity work.  Giving back is important to me personally because growing up without privilege and funds shaped much of who I am. I remember very vividly the many things that others contributed to me and my family when I was young.  However, I've always felt a bit odd because I frequently feel that I get so much more out of our charity work than what we contribute.  Our annual charity ball is definitely a highlight of each year and the friendships we have made over the years have contributed to a full social calendar for us.

When we moved here two years ago, it was an aspect I missed almost immediately.  We went from monthly fundraising happy hours and other social events, to private date nights.  While those are fun, I know my husband and I both really enjoy giving back. It took me a little while, but I think I found a wonderful group to contribute our time and money to here in the Bay Area.  Last week, we attended a donor event to hear a bit about the work our volunteers and advocated do for children in our community.  The event started after work and it was dark by the time we left and took my pictures, so I apologize for the blurry pics, but it was the best I could do!  I wore this wrap dress which was also my first DvF wrap and a sentimental favorite.  I had worn it to work with a blazer over it and low pumps, but ditched the blazer and changed into heels for the event after work.  It was perfect for the not quite cocktail, but a step above business dress code.
