I wore this to a Bastille Day celebration at the French Embassy. My dad works with a French university, so he got invited, and he took my mom and me along. Is it lame to hang out with your parents like that? I don’t know, and even if it is, I wasn’t going to turn down free food (free French food) because of it.
This dress is a hand-me-down from my sister, and it’s actually dark navy, so I kept with the “red-white-blue” theme by adding my silver pin and ruby heels – they’re pretty much my “special occasion” shoes now. I don’t go out on special occasions too often, but every time something like this comes up, I always remind myself that I need a black dress and dressier shoes. Of course, I would always manage to put together something sufficiently appropriate from what I already have, and tell myself that there is no need to buy a black dress and shoes that I only wear once in a blue moon. What do you guys think? Is it worth the investment?
