So the boyfriend showed up recently home from work after a long hard day and said ” Hey babe, you want to get dressed up this weekend and go to a party?”
Ummmm. Duh! Yes! Is this a real question?
Of. Course. It is a given.
I want to get dressed up and go to a party!
And so we did… and we had a ball.
I was super excited once i started researching what one wears to this sort of event. I wanted a combination of Princess Diana meets Pretty Woman meets Beyonce. I went with a simple well fitting demure dove grey dress and matching leather pumps with a cute bow detail on the toe. My hat came straight outta my own inventory at Jekyll & Hyde. I choose what I thought was an ostentatious navy blue feathered asymmetrical mad hatter sort of number, but I found out that next year I need to find (or create) one even more over the top. Especially if I want to win a prize.
My guy, on the other hand, was the absolutely most dapper guy there… with his summer suit, suspenders, tie, hat, and shoe ensemble he was hard to beat. I love that he loves dress up too!
Isn’t he handsome?!?
Moral to the story…
Dress up is awesome. Everyone should do it.
