Office Party

Tonight, MBM and I are going to his company's holiday party. He works for an international company and he is based out of the Philadelphia office, but NEVER actually goes to the office. He knows 2 people that will be attending the party. And I haven't lost the ten pounds yet, can you imagine in four days, so there will be no drinks for me! Sometimes, it is just easier to be in a room full of strangers making small talk after a drink or two...maybe one glass of red wine won't hurt! UGH!!!! I did get a new dress though!

I picked it up on our trek to the mall for Caroline's birthday. I am wearing it with black opaque hose, black patent leather shoes and bag, and I am on the fence about jewelry. The dress has shiny black buttons on the sleeves, so I am thinking a black beaded bracelet and that's it...no necklace...what do you think?

********the dress is J. Crew...click here...it's on sale!********

I would skip the necklace. The ruffles make enough of an impact. Very cute dress. J Crew??

Oh my gosh, I love the dress! Seriously, love it! I think you're right about the jewlery- minimal- a littly onyx bracelet and maybe some tiny earrings. Have fun at the party!

Love the ruffles and I agree with the others ... they make enough of a statement by themselves without a necklace.

Hope it's a fun night!

That dress is STUNNING!!!! I Think it would look lovely with some short pearls.

You'll look fab H!

Yeah, the one glass of wine might be a good idea. Enjoy!

I agree about the short pearls, but you're probably already at the party. Hope you had fun!

Kerry said...

you are so at the party by now but if you are wear black tights and patent shoes then a fab beaded bracelet is all you need and with the ruffles no necklace - it will be too much!

A very cute dress!! I'm too late with my vote for either no necklace or short pearls, but there you have it. Hope you had fun!
