WHAT TO WEAR FOR AN EVENING OUT

June 9, 2015

Choosing eveningwear can be tricky – I never know if I should buy something basic that I will wear again and again or something that takes my breath away. In the end, it is always the heart stoppers that win my inner debate. Why? Because these pieces hold the power to make me feel something when I wear them; excited, beautiful, sexy, fun – something my basics will never do. In my mind evoking that feeling and attaching it to the outfit makes that garment something of a superhero suit – each time I put that particular dress on in the future (be it in five months or five years) I start feeling the same giddy excitement that gets me in the mood to shimmy.

Ochre is one of the standout colours of the season – this pleated silk dress is perfect with heels or flats, cinched in or loose. Tome dress and Aquazurra sandals.
