On the very odd occasion, black doesn't do it for me !!!! Shocked... I know. :)
By the end of a long, hot, humid day (I don't respond well to the heat), colour does work as a bit of a pick me up. After such a day, yesterday, we had an engagement dinner to attend and I did initially pop on a black dress. But because i wasn't feeling or looking as fresh as I would have liked, it was just 'blah', so I reached for one of two coloured dresses in my wardrobe (just in case you are curious, the other is orange. Similar cut but jersery and more casual)
Kept it simple, with silver accessories. The beautiful earrings my Secret Santa (the lovely Karie) sent me last Christmas, a silver cuff and silver rings and a black and silver clutch from Myer.
How does this look? On one hand I worry the dress is a little too body con for my shape but on the other I figure.. "does it really matter"??
And permission to rant??
I knew it would be a 'reasonably' relaxed occasion. I am getting to know what to expect here. The dinner was at a hotel, was outdoors and was set up to look very pretty. But there was no consistency at all to the guests presentation. Tshirts and shorts were quite a prominent look:) Please don't think I am being judgmental, I think I was just a little disappointed. Any one else experience this? How does it make you feel?
Thanks for looking and your comments much appreciated.
