Today I attended a cocktail party in a fancy garden. The party was a fund raiser connected to a funky garden group I am part of. I was planning on wearing a very craftique dress with a loud print, bright embroidery and a tassel. I would have paired it with red platform sandals and a bright red necklace.
Lucky for me, I ran late.
My friend Elizabeth showed up to go to the party and she was wearing a nice black dress, dramatic but tasteful jewelry and nothing odd.
I changed and was VERY glad.
The garden was filled with nice dresses, seasonally-appropriate tunics with capris, tasteful accessories.
Thank goodness for tardiness.
This necklace was perfect; crystal drop, embellished filigree element, double chain.
