I got invited to a fancy schmancy benefit for charity event. I looked on the invitation and it said "festive cocktail attire". Huh? Didn't "cocktail" already mean your ensemble should be party-ish? Being on a limited budget, I was determined to find my attire at Goodwill.
The heavens parted, the angels sang, and a beam of light (not really) landed on the dress I show you in the below picture.
It was very flattering and very comfy, being that it was silk (fully lined). The only thing I was not crazy about were the cheap-ass utilitarian and non-functional red buttons fastened vertically in the middle of the bodice.
There was a photographer at the event taking "prom pictures" of couples in front of a backdrop. If the picture comes out relatively okay I will post it once it is received.
