These days I find myself going straight to fashion events after work quite often, leading to this age-old dilemma: should I bring a change of clothes and makeup to work--which is a lot to carry--or should I just go straight to an event in the same thing I've been wearing all day? Case in point: Last week I left the office for a cocktail party thrown by Holt Renfrew and Chanel to celebrate Chanel's newly renovated cosmetics and fragrance space. Something chic and Chanel-worthy, but comfortable and wrinkle-resistant, was required. Just as I was about to give up on "comfortable and wrinkle-resistant," I remembered the gold-and-black lace Juicy Couture dress I bought in Vegas. Paired with a blazer, statement necklace, jeweled flats, and a 2.55 purse, this outfit met all the criteria I had in mind. (Okay, admittedly I might have been overdressed for work, where the outfit de rigueur of software developers is graphic tees, jeans, and sneakers.)
- Blazer (Gap)
- Dress (Juicy Couture)
- Necklace (H&M)
- Shoes (Browns)
- Purse (Chanel)
Huge thanks to gorgeous blogger Carolina of Closet Full of Nothing, who generously gave me her invite because she was going to be out of town during the event! I offered to cover it for her as a guest blogger in her absence, so I'll be updating this post later with a link to the recap on Carolina's blog. In the meantime, here's a little sneak peek.
UPDATE: My guest post is up on Closet Full of Nothing!
