Unfortunately I didn’t have a suit and tie at the ready (sorry to disappoint, JT), so I had to make due with this outfit for Fashion Palette’s VIP 5th Birthday Party last Tuesday. I picked up this baby at the bargain price of $70 and it has been one of my greatest bargains to date considering it was brand new stock (thank you staff discount). You may have noticed a reoccurring trend on this blog that I kind of adore black. (I probably own at least twenty black dresses. At least.) In fact, when my friend was going around the circle criticising everybody’s choice of wear, he stopped at me and simply said “too much back”. I don’t see a problem considering the variety of textures: leather, chiffon, suede! If it’s good enough for the French, then it’ll do me just fine. Happy birthday, Fashion Palette!
