Another Black Dress

I was asked to take someone's place at an annual society dinner where my organisation regularly gets invited to.

It was a last minute request, so I had to rush home to freshen up and change my outfit. (I was in black patterned tights and a flouncy top that day!)

I've attended this dinner before. So I knew that unless I really wanted to stand out, I should stick to basic black.

I was right. It was basically a sea of black. Not surprisingly, someone from senior management actually expressed that he thought black should be the colour to wear for any formal event.

Anyway I don't have a problem with that. I have several black dresses to help me blend in with the crowd. I just added some shine with a few extra diamonds :)

like imp, i'll prob fail too - i almost naturally gravitate towards anything but lack. haha. except now when i'm pregnant - black doesn't seem like such a bad idea! have only one formal-ish black dress that i wear to every function! ugh.

corsage said...

imp: Yes I was surprised! I couldn't take all the black so I had to wear a huge glittery brooch for some shine!

beanbean: Thanks! Just one is enough really :) Just accessorise it differently each time. But you do look very nice with colour!

lms: There were others in formal shiny suits. My suits are too everyday type. Cut covers tummy. haha!

ruth: Happy casuals are perfect for you! Comfy and easy to care for :)
