Oh you fancy, huh?

A Pretty Penny | Red and Black Event Floral Design

We so rarely get dressed up these days; such occasions really must be documented.

Last night C and I put on our finest and headed downtown for a community gala. After spending the last several days working on the flowers for the event — and a good chunk of the afternoon setting up the hall — it was nice to see our design vision in action while enjoying a few cocktails and some good food.

Once upon a time when my career was of the power-networking, party-attending, marketing-PR’ing persuasion, I wore cocktail dresses more often than jeans and would’ve sworn under oath that heels were more comfortable than flats. Some days I look back at that fancy girl and don’t recognize her. It’s nice to reincarnate her every now and then; as long as I can go back to my trusty t-shirts and flats the next morning.

  1. Lovely look! Dressing up can become a chore and lose its charm when it’s a part of your career, but it definitely becomes exciting again when it’s for fun and for you.

  2. Beautiful! Since I started working from home (8 months ago) I haven’t worn heels or anything that would resemble business attire. So I totally understand where you’re coming from. And yes, I do like wearing my flats more now ;)
