Cocktail Party



Dress (Gap); Shirt & Bag (Marshalls); Cocktail Ring (Banana Republic);
Shoes (Nine West)

One of my coworkers asked where the cocktail party was, since based on my outfit I was obviously headed to one... Clearly I dress for the role I want ;) I recently read that a famous Hollywood costume designer says, “You can have everything you want as long as you dress for it” - which I think is genius!   So based on that logic, I will be ending the day with a cocktail and possibly a party :)

It's so true about dressing based on your goals in life. And a cocktail and a party are terrific things to hope for at the end of the day! Your outfit is so pretty as is your hair-do.

This outfit is indeed totally party proof. Loving the black lace! x

Alexandra said...

I love how chic you are for work! That dress is stunning, but even though it's totally cocktail party appropriate, it's such a great functional piece too. And I totally agree with that quote - I've been an intern or student for god knows how long now and my mum always says "at least you LOOK successful." Counts for something I guess haha.
