Last night, our department threw our Christmas party, and what a party it was! We always hold the event at a local brew pub, particularly at Christmas, because they do brew a seasonal mead. What one should know about mead is that it hits you hard, and just keeps going. Those dreams of wearing purple and pink and grey I was having? Didn't happen today. Most of the day was spent on the couch, half asleep.
I decided to wear this dress, and I did my best to find a new pair of shoes. however, I ended up using stuff in my closet. I suppose that's a good thing, but I do so little clothing and shoe shopping for myself I like to have excuses like parties to go out and buy something.
The issue was of course that choosing this dress meant either wearing unseasonal shoes, or going with mixing neutrals. Since the wind was rather nasty, I mixed neutrals. Navy dress, black everything else. I did layer a navy tight under the black lace ones, but unfortunately, the lighting in the venue was so bad, it was unlikely that it was even recognized.
And in case you're thinking: "That dress looks some what familiar", it is the same dress I wore to a wedding this summer, with a slight change in the neckline to make it less trendy!
