Tonight I Get To Play Dress Up

Tonight is an annual Holiday Party for a organization that I am involved with through work.  I'm on their Board of Directors.  It's very exciting to feel important and be able to get all dressed up for a nice dinner and a few cocktails.  And even better, my Hubs gets to go with me so it kind of feels like a mini date night.  I always buy something new for the occasion because I don't really have many occasions to buy (or even wear) a nice dress and new heels.  And what girl doesn't love to play a little dress up.

1. Black dress
(I found a great deal (even cheaper than the online price), at JCPenney's nonetheless, never in a million years did I think I would buy something there.  JCPenney always equaled frumpy to me, but they have taken things up quite a few notches and their sales! Amazing. Thanks Mom for the suggestion and convincing me to step out of my shopping comfort level.  She even emailed me yesterday to let me know it was featured in InStyle magazine this month.  Go me!).
The Dress

2. Red pumps
(thank you Macy's for having an option under 6"; most shoe designers do not factor 6'3" women into their criteria when determining the height of a heel; I'm comfortable with my height, but don't want to look like an Amazon woman, thankyouverymuch).

3. Red accessories (ring and hair piece)

4. Black glitter eye shadow and more gray and white so that I can appropriately contour.

Researched (thank you once again Pinterest):
1. The perfect glittery smoky eye

2. The perfect holiday hair

I think I'm ready.  I'll post pictures tomorrow!

Until then, have a great day!

You're going to look great! I know what you mean about JC Penney, but I've actually come to like some of their departments, and they have really great sales.
