When deciding how to dress for a party I think about what mood I want to be in, what tone I want to set, what impression I want to give and what will help me accomplish all this is just one evening. For our office holiday party, I wanted my outfit to express the stunning success we’ve had this past year so I knew I wanted to wear gold, the color of achievement and triumph. I also choose black, the color of the hidden and unknown since there are still more surprises yet to come. Put together in this beautiful cocktail dress, I found all I wanted and more. The fabric is a subtle snake print which adds some bite, and it’s stretchy so you definitely dance in it. Plus, it’s guaranteed to be flattering between the peplum accent fanning out from a fitted waist and the extra flexible scuba knit back. Accentuate with a pair of sparkly gold dress sandals, a small evening clutch and a complementing accessory that will capture all the picture perfect moments.
