After celebrating your Thanksgiving traditions and before you start the New Year’s resolutions, spend the season of giving and celebrating with those you love and appreciate. Everyone, no matter what type of function they are attending, deserves to feel their best! With the help of several of our supporters, L•O PROFILE has found people who share with us their event-ready look.
Skip Grossnickle dresses to impress fellow Mizzou fans with the assistance of Bingham’s. Johna Stanfield models a funky and fresh look from Shabby Chic for a cocktail event with Lake-area friends. Kathy and Curt Tite dress for a more formal New Year’s Eve gala with the help of KT’s Boutique. With the assistance of Blair’s Landing, Dr. Maria Bernabe was able to find a dress for the Lake Regional Hospital Ball and another that she can use for another holiday party. Cheri Ward found the perfect bridesmaid dress for her friend’s upcoming wedding with the assistance of A Passion for Fashion.
