Oh man, you just reminded me I should probably start looking. I’ve worn the same gown for the last 3 balls (they were all at different commands, so that’s totally fine, right??), but it’s probably time for a new outfit! That’s a great deal you found, and a very lovely dress!

 @Miss Fish: your dress is gorgeous and I love the beading. My FI bought my dress online for me and it was a really good price, I was going to wear it for a ball earlier in the year but we couldn’t go so I am going to wear it for the Christmas ball which is a gothic fairy tale theme so I think it will work.

I’m getting so jealous. My husband was never really into the Navy’s “formal traditions”. He didn’t have much interest in attending the balls because getting drunk would have been be career suicide, and he’s not much of a dancer, and he didn’t feel comfortable about being around so much brass, and blah blah blah.

I never pressed the matter, and now he’s out. We had a conversation about it just last night because a close of mine will be attending the Marine Corps ball. My husband said, “Well, you should have told me that you wanted to go so badly and I would have taken you in a heartbeat.” And here I thought it was a man’s job to ask his his lady to attend it with him.

Not attending a ball with him is my one regret about his stint in the military.

Aww, I don’t have a picture of mine 🙁 it’s a really pretty shimmery navy blue, though..strapless with a corset back. This is the first ball I’ve been to, I’m so nervous :-p

@Miss Fish:  I love your dress, I miss Military balls from when I was in the Army! Now it’s gala season in my area for all the charities. Could you please post a link of the gown exchange facebook group?

That was his ball, and just for good measure this was mine:
