We have been invited to my DH’s company
Christmas party Winter Soiree. The invitations says ‘cocktail attire’. What, exactly does that mean? I just keep thinking about ‘Pretty Woman’ where the woman says to Julia Roberts “You’re going to need a cocktail dress.” And then Julia has this little black number on, that’s pretty much my only point of reference. But, see, Pretty Woman was a long time ago, and I cannot pull off the same kinds of clothes that Julia Roberts can. Sartorial experts everywhere - (Carrie!) - free advice is requested!
Links to pictures would be appreciated, so I have examples of what I can wear. Mostly I want you to come into my closet and tell me that yes, I can wear that top, it’s not too fancy, or no, you can’t wear that one, it’s not fancy enough, but I don’t see how that’s possible over the internet. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only clueless person getting invited to parties, and frankly, I’m tired of sweating this out every year. So could someone smarter than I am define ‘cocktail’ versus ‘black tie invited’ versus ’something else?’ Thanks for your support.
