We went to an art opening at our friend Eric’s office. We weren’t sure of the dress code, and when we got there most of the other girls were in jeans and nice tops, or casual dresses, but I’d rather be a little over dressed than under dressed ANY day. Erin gave me this dress last time we cleaned out her closet, and I was really excited to have an excuse to wear it. It’s a size too big, but I don’t think it’s noticeable, and it would be pretty expensive to tailor.
I got tons of compliments at the showing, as well as later, when we went down to Oak Lawn for the big Halloween block party. I swear, every year I end up having another event on the night of the block party and end up not being able to wear a costume. But at least I looked great. I just said I was dressed as a girl.
I love the contrast of the biker jacket and party dress, and I really liked the way the dress was cut so that it showed off my tattoo when I took the jacket off. That way with or without the jacket I maintained a little bit of edginess.
I changed into flats for the block party, but these shoes were actually pretty comfortable for the couple hours that I stood around in them, and I think they are perfect for the dress.
And for a dash of sweet, bunny earrings.
