Cocktail attire

This Sunday we attended an amazing 40th birthday party.  The invitation called for cocktail attire.  Almost all of the women wore knee-length black fitted dresses.  Two or three wore black and white fitted knee-length dresses.  And a couple wore slightly shorter black dresses.  One wore navy (fitted and knee-length) with silver embellishments!

And then there was me.

I had a feeling that might happen, but I'm pretty comfortable with stuff like that.  The dress is certainly dressy enough.  And I love the short flippy hemline.  It moved so well when I was dancing!  I loved the color and neckline on this dress too.  And hubby liked it!  So it is a success.  I can't wait for the photos from the party.

(Dress: Herve Leger, from Lollipuff.  Shoes (SO SO SO comfortable for hours of dancing!) Sergio Rossi from DSW.  Earrings, Vince Camuto from Nordstrom Rack.  Purse: Jimmy Choo sunglass case from ebay that I custom covered with crystals!!  (Custom "strassed").  Watch: Gucci.) 


  1. This is an amazing dress on you! Love, love, love it. (But I think you're lying when you say those shoes were comfortable!) Are you wearing a strapless bra?

  2. Thank you! And the shoes actually really were comfortable! It's not clear exactly how, but they were. (I actually went online today searching for the same shoes in other colors after realizing how comfy they were!)
    Yup, strapless bra. I went to Nordstroms and got fitted and they found me one that actually stays up. I wore the same strapless bra with the Downtown Disney outfit too.
