It's so rare that DH and I have a dressy event to attend that I had to document this outfit - even though I only got a pic in my den, and most other guests were dressed casually after all. The hosts were dressed really festively - she in great red tartan trousers and he in a striped red jacket and bow tie - and mentioned that they liked our outfits and felt dressing up helps keep holidays special. I agree!
Once again, it was a bit rainy and cold for party night, so I wore my Frye Julias with this Black Halo dress (a leftover from a DFS fund raiser) and my cat pendant (our friends who threw the party run a cat shelter). I liked how the boots added a funky touch and also kept me warm without tights, since that would have been altogether too much black for me. Close-up to show the fun and flattering tummy draping on the dress.
DH said he's glad I'm recording this "good, functional outfit" for posterity. :)
