Christmas Cocktail Party

I went to a cocktail party last night.  I always say ‘I won’t drink much’ but I always do… My brother is a bad influence on me!

The dress code was smart/casual.  I find ‘smart/casual’ is always the hardest to dress for.  How do I know if I will be too smart or too casual?  What if I am the only one who turns up in a super duper dress?

My first pick was a silk dress I bought in Vietnam, but once I found out the dress code I thought it was too dressy.  So I delved into my wardrobe (or rather my sister’s) to find a suitable dress.

She lent me a blue dress with gold thread embroidery throughout.  I also borrowed a cardi from my mum, because all of mine were too casual!

The only thing I owned was my bag, shoes and jewelry.

I had a super time and I am so glad I went.  I don’t feel like going back to work tomorrow, but only 3.5 more days (and counting) until I am officially on holiday!!!

Here’s what I wore last night:

I love Christmas time, especially since it is summer here (however it has been pretty chilly today and yesterday…summer – come back!!!).
