Normally I love getting all dolled up for a fun night out but I was truly stressed about going to my aunt’s formal 60th birthday party. I was anticipating a long work week so knowing that I had to rush out of the office on a Friday evening to get ready for a formal event gave me great anxiety. A lot of prep work goes into wearing a formal dress. You have to have the right shoes, accessories, makeup and, most importantly, underwear to achieve a fabulous look.
Once I found this amazing Calvin Klein number (only 4 days before the event) I knew I’d be set. As soon as I put this dress on I knew it was the one. It instantly gave me that old Hollywood glam look and made me feel gorgeous. The strong jersey fabric was totally comfortable making it easy for me to spend ample time on the dance floor.
I accessorized with neutral sandals, gold jewelry accents and a beautiful beaded tribal look clutch I borrowed from my very fashionable sister (in the pink dress).
