Last night I got dressed up and headed to the Urb.an 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.
