Hi everybody! Happy holidays!
I wanted to share these photos from my company’s holiday party a few weeks ago. The event is always quite fun – dinner and dancing in black tie attire. I wanted an outfit that was both formal and light so that I could dance the night away without overheating, and I wanted something that wasn’t too constricting for the same reason. I knew a bunch of my friends were looking on Rent the Runway for outfits, and while I have had lots of success with them before (I wore this dress to the same event two years ago and loved it!), I wanted to try for a unique look and to make sure I wasn’t playing twins with any other guests at the event.
I had seen this skirt on Chicwish early this fall and had thought it had great potential. As the event drew closer I ordered the skirt, but couldn’t seem to find a good top to go with it. I wanted something fitted and neutral in color so as to both balance the volume of the skirt and to highlight my bright red pumps. The day of the event I remembered this old summer dress I had in the back of my closet, and realized I could layer the dress and skirt with no one at the party the wiser. I was really quite pleased with myself. I loved that the outfit turned out to be elegant and unique without breaking the bank, and I’m excited for the challenge of re-wearing the skirt in a more casual setting.
Do any of you have success stories from festive holiday parties to share? I hope you’re all enjoying the season, and thanks so much for stopping by!
