“Speakeasy in the Big Easy”


Last night, J & I attended my school’s annual Gala, one of the biggest fundraisers of the year. The theme of this year’s Gala was “Speakeasy in the Big Easy” ,so many arrived in 20’s inspired duds. Dapper, I must say!


Here are some shots from last night {wish I had taken more}:





We passed such a good time that I am typing this blog from the comforts of my bed. Overserved? Maybe!

  1. Now that looks like a fun party! You? Overseverd? Hmmmmmm! Take it EASY in the Big Easy today.

  2. you and J look handsome and dapper too! looks like a good time was had by all (maybe a little bit too much fun?!)

  3. It looks like you all had a fun time. I love your suit, Ron. Tonya

  4. I loved seeing everyone's outfits! So neat. You and J looked so handsome too.

  5. Sounds like a great night Ron...loved everyone's outfits!!

  6. Just reading this because we got home later from Michelle Richard's wedding in Houston last night. I thought about you, Ron--you would have been in your element. This was the most opulent wedding and reception that I have ever been, too. The reception was at the Houston Country Club, and Jackie and Mark didn't spare any expense. Half of Thibodaux and Vacherie were there--a truly royal wedding. It looks like you got over your allergies in time to enjoy yourself last night, and I'm sure you were "over-served"! I love those flapper dresses, and of course, you looked so Jay Gatsby in your white suit, blue shirt, and bow tie! J. was a dandy, too, in his suit. Have a good evening! xoxo

  7. What a coincidence. Our Fairhope prom last night was "The Great Gatsby" with many of the attendees in flapper attire! Such a great era to replicate. Hope you raised a ton of $$$$!

  8. What a great theme for a fund raiser! Looks like y'all had a great time!

  9. Fun times! You and J look so dapper and the girls are rockin' the flapper attire. I hope you raised a LOT of money!



Thanks for reading and commenting @ The Uptown Acorn! I love hearing from you. Cheers, y'all!
