I’m going to a party tomorrow! I have to say, I’m generally not a huge fan of parties unless it’s a group of people (however large) that I know and love — which is to say, I’m not always comfortable schmoozing with those I don’t know — but I DO love dressing up.
Usually I’m happy to repurpose pieces that are already in my closet, but for this occasion, I really looked hard for a new dress. Unfortunately, I was unable to come up with anything within my budget. (Which was, ummm, $50. Yeah, not too likely.) Just for fun, though, I decided to put together a few looks. This first one is what I consider the runner-up: colorful and fun, but a little more geared toward summer than fall. Also, probably not quite a fancy enough fabric on the dress.
[UPDATE! I found a dress! And for just $70! From Macy's! Man, I have good luck at Macy's. Thought you'd enjoy these posts anyway. Pictures of the actual dress coming next week!]
