I adore getting dressed up. It is one of my favourite things to do. It has not always been this way. I remember a time in my 20s and even into my 30s where I really could not be bothered too much.
A bit of a light bulb went off in my head in the past couple of years with the passing of time. I realized that I would not have forever to enjoy getting dressed up, wearing heels, getting my hair done (although I have long been getting my hair styled before big events), etc.
For this event, my work Christmas party, I wore my Banana Republic dress that I got for a charity function last winter. Some sparkly shoes, hair and makeup and I was set.
Here we are just before we went out.
