Have you ever put together a perfectly lovely outfit, but just felt an odd nagging sensation? A couple of years ago I had a blue cocktail dress picked out for a red-carpet event. It was flattering, sexy, and appropriate, but it felt so boring and predictable. I chucked the dress, hiked a floor length grey, satin skirt up to my armpits, threw a scarf around my waist and a pink stole across my shoulders and blissfully twirled through the evening.
I like an inside joke, something playful and fun, a bit of a wink when it comes to style.
We have a gala on Thursday requesting cocktail festive attire. I feel challenged.
