What a timely Friday post! I could not wear that combination to work but it was perfect for the night out on Friday night!
I have asked your advice what to wear for this Friday dance here. The overwhelming vote was for the red dress so I thought - why not?
I really like this dress but there are 2 things which prevent me from wearing it more often:
1. the neckline is too deep for my body type to be flattering;
2. Apparently I lacked a good belt to wear with it.
So this is how i fixed it for last night:
1. Piled my pearls to fill the neckline: after all it is a holiday season and the bling is perfect for it, right? I was off the necklaces for the last 2 years but somehow these pearls felt right this time. Hopefully it was not over the top but even if it was - 'tis the season to be blingy! :-)
2. Ran to the store to look for a new belt after work and before the dance. Found 3 belts in Laura and Melanie Lyne. I wore this black Laura belt with the dress. I hope the buckle was not too much with the necklace but again - it is the holiday bling season! :-)
I also got 2 other belts from Melanie Lyne: this studded one and a gold elastic belt which I don't have a link to. This last one is too big so it has to be taken in but it is quite nice.
We had great time with live jazz band and dancing - actually we loved it so much that after returning home we bought tickets to the same venue for New Year's Eve. I can use more dancing in my life, right? :-)
Hope you have a great weekend!
