Quick Note: If you haven’t already, I’d love for you to share your Ready For Work style in my new weekly link up!
I don’t get too many opportunities to wear something fun and fancy, especially mid-week. So I jumped at the chance to attend a cocktail attire charity event for Step Up Women’s Network, an organization of which I am a member that serves underprivileged teenage girls while also providing an opportunity to professional women to foster networking and career development relationships.
I opted for a very simple all black lace look and finished it off with a statement necklace I picked up a few years ago. I actually purchased it off of Overstock.com after seeing the maid of honor wear it at a friend’s wedding. I hunted her down at the reception to investigate the necklace procurement and followed her lead to add one of these bad boys to my collection. It’s clearly a bit much to wear out and about on a regular day (at least in my comfort zone) so I get excited when I have a chance to wear it.
Have you been to any fancy events recently? Do you jump at the chance to dress up?
