Black Tie Optional

Last night I got dressed up and headed to the Leag.ue’s annual dinner.  I had a friend who was receiving an award, so I pulled some strings and got a couple of tickets.  CaliSlim was my date and we had a great time.  As she will tell you, her three favorite words are “Black Tie Optional.”  I have to agree- I do love socializing with well dressed people!

Since the decision to go was fairly last minute, I really didn’t have much to wear.  I had planned on wearing this dress, but at the last minute I pulled my only formal gown out of the back of my closet.  Coincidentally, the last time I wore this dress was to this exact same function about 4 years ago.  I didn’t really think it would fit, but I decided to give it a try.

Thankfully, I was able to squeeze my size 14 body into this size 12 dress.  I could have easily worn the other dress and not looked out of place, but how often do I get to go formal?

I have decided to pick up a couple formal dresses the next time I can catch a good sale.  Hopefully it won’t be another four years before I have a chance to wear it.
