As most of the Mayne Mafia knows, flip flops and tank tops are my usual attire. At times, I may wear a nice collared shirt and jeans, if the occasion is a little more ‘business’ casual. However, we have been invited to one of the most elegant and formal affairs we have ever attended. I was extremely honored and privileged to be able to attend, however there was one major problem. This live streamer has never owned a suit!!
The Give Kids The World Black & White Gala is the largest fundraiser for the Village and these year’s theme “A Starlite Night” features award-winning entertainment, silent auction, fine dining and of course, messages from the CEO and President Pam Landwirth and wish families. It is such an amazing opportunity and so happy that you will be able to experience part of this event ‘through the lens of this livestreamer.’ But first, it is time to get this Cinderella dressed for the ball.
Where to start?? I had no idea. But, as if it was Disney magic, a reach out from a popular and well respected store, gave me the opportunity to come in and be outfitted for this black tie affair. A huge thank you to Suit City for not only making me feel comfortable in the most “out of the comfort zone” experience but also allowing me to bring the Mayne Mafia along to be a fashion guide during the journey of choosing the best look for the evening.
Dean, who put me at ease right off the bat, was super informative and took charge of the whole process, with a kind of “Jedi sense” of what would be the best ensemble for the night. After getting a fitting (that is important and was my first “fitting”) he let the Mayne Mafia choose from three truly great looks. A classic black, a peaked black and a velvet black that won over the Mayne Mafia by a landslide. Of course, when the owner of the establishment is also watching the live stream and calls in to tell you that the velvet is the proper choice, well, you tend to listen to the expert as well.
After choosing some fancy, shiny shoes that tunneled my inner Justin Timberlake or Frank Sinatra, you all chose the cherry on top, this amazingly spectacular sparkly bow tie! I do have to say, it was a great experience and I cannot thank Suit City, their owner, their staff who lead me every step of the way Dean and Margie for really making this live streamer feel like a superstar. Thank you also so the ever awesome Mayne Mafia for your advice and feedback on what was the perfect choice for this very special evening.
