Help me nail it!

On Saturday my husband and I are joining a few friends for the "Champagne & Feathers Ball". This black-tie event benefits Meningitis Charities as our friend had a nearly fatal battle with spinal meningitis. Several years later and fully recovered, paying her gratitude forward is genuine.

While I am looking forward to the event, I am a bit nervous. While my casual Florida style is accustomed to formal events, the English level of formality is completely different than what I am used to. My husband and I went shopping a couple of weeks ago and both managed to get something to wear with very little stress.

Obviously, finding a tux is a bit easier than a dress, but we found one to buy that was cheaper than renting practically. We figured we can take it on our cruise and it will be a good test to see if we should invest in a higher quality tuxedo for my husband.

My dress was much too easy as well. Very little alterations are needed and are things I can do myself. Surprisingly enough, I found a full length dress that can I can wear without hemming as long as I wear some platform heels. I think I have a pair to wear, and they're from Clark's, so they will be comfortable as well. I just have to stop looking, like most women, I'm a bit of a shoeahilic and continue the quest regardless of what is in my closet.

My other dilemma is how to accessorize. There are some gem details on the dress, so I think less is more. With nail art being so popular at the moment, I thought fun nails would be my big accessory. Here are a few ideas I've come up with, let me know what you think. My husband likes the blue and glitter.
