I finally got to dress up and go somewhere! Yay! Now that the pandemic is behind us, and the local mask mandate has eased, we have been able to enjoy what life was once like. This means formal affairs have returned!
Since I lost roughly forty pounds last year, none of my formal go-to dresses fit anymore. So, I had a good excuse to invest in one fabulous little black dress! Love that!
This little black dress was perfect for the event I went to, which was to honor my senior daughter and the work she has done in the community over the course of her high school career. Parents wore black, while daughters wore white, in order to ensure our daughters could shine. This dress code worked out perfectly since I firmly believe every woman should own at least one fabulous little black dress. You never know when you need a go-to dress last minute which can be worn for a cocktail event, or something more formal. Of course, it cannot work for black tie when dresses should be long, but it does work for most formal or dressy affairs. Love!
The event was held at the Corinthian Grand Ballroom in downtown San Jose. I was thrilled to find out how delicious the food at the venue was that evening! I enjoyed this halibut dish, which was so yummy, I cleaned my plate; even though, according to etiquette, you are supposed to leave a couple bites on the plate. I couldn’t help myself; this was delicious! Don’t worry, I didn’t scrape, and I did leave some asparagus, I’m not big on asparagus. haha
I am looking forward to future events where I can wear this little black dress again. It looks great with a classic Chanel bag or spiced up with a brightly colored bag and/or shoes. As you know, the little black dress gives you endless possibilities!
