Last Friday night I had a Fall party to go to after work. I know what you’re thinking…yes a party. What the heck is that? Things were going through my mind like am I too old for a party? What do people even do at parties these days? Am I supposed to bring food or a gift? And what the heck do I wear to a Fall party?? I feel like it’s been almost a decade since I’ve been to a party, so these were all pretty fair questions.
Luckily, I spotted this pretty dress
a few weeks ago and had it sitting in my closet for the perfect occasion, and I think this Fall party was it. This dress was definitely more than I normally spend on clothing anymore these days, but with that super soft chenille fabric, puffy embroidered sleeves and perfect fit, I knew it would be worth it. And it was. I fell in love with it. I’m already thinking I might wear it for some holiday celebrations this year since it’s such a great statement piece and such pretty fall and winter shades. I paired it with the cutest little cage bag (and it’s on sale!)
And for those wondering, yes I found out all the answers to my Fall party questions. It is nice to bring a hostess gift or a food item. I always err on the side of dressing up more than being underdressed. And hopefully I wasn’t too old for the party. = ) What do you like to wear to parties and events this time of year?
