The mood this week is black-tie. A clutch tucked under my left shoulder (any of the clutches pictured above will due), an elegant bun, a sophisticated dress and jewelry to match. A black-tie event calls for unadulterated glamour. Pulling out all the stops if you will.
This Thursday, I have a black-tie event to attend that I'm truly looking forward to. The event is a Spring Benefit for a non-profit that is my Raison d'être. Everyone should have a cause that they are passionate about. It's about more than simply putting my name on a fancy invitation. This is one non-profit that I'm always happy to tutor, mentor or leverage my professional contacts for.
I'm on the Junior Council of this non profit, but we are not hosting this event. This benefit is geared toward a more mature audience. Work is a big supporter of this non-profit, so I'm bound to run into company VIPs. Herein lies the sartorial challenge. If ever there was a time to look polished and poised this is it.
Luckily I have the perfect dress in mind for the occasion. I have been excited to wear this dress for weeks. Now it's just a matter of waiting for the dress to be sent over via messenger. Unfortunately, patience is not one of my greatest virtues. At last... demain.
