Imagine you’ve just stepped into the most magnificent party room with 100’s of guests, champagne is flowing everywhere, the chandeliers dripping with exquisite crystal and so many interesting new people to meet…
You’ve spent a fortune on your lovely new little black dress which fits superb. The photographers are going crazy and you feel a million dollars. However everyone else is dressed in black too. Your dress just doesn’t stand out as much as you had hoped because 80% of the other guests are also wearing their fabulously fitting little black dresses. You simply become lost in a sea of black…
This is the reason why Fashionistas wear non-black to parties. In that sea of black you’ll make an impact. “She was the one wearing the lovely blue and silver dress”… this sort of impact is not to be underestimated!

Why Fashionistas Wear Non-Black to Parties
You’re at a client party and people are referring to you… “which one is she?”… you’ll be much easier to find if wearing a dress that stands out!
You’re at your work Christmas party and just managed to impress senior management with a brilliant idea but they forget your name… they can ask someone “who was the woman in the silver blue dress?”
Not to mention the added benefit that a colourful dress has of being easily converted to day wear. For example the dress I’m wearing today will also be worn with chunky sneakers and a sweater for a more casual look.
This of course doesn’t mean you can’t add a few black accessories to give the whole look a more evening touch…
I’m not saying wear them all day, but it is always good to have a pair of extra high heels on stand by for parties – smile!
You can always put cushions into the souls for extra foot protection. A great online site for buying foot petals and other accessories here.
A pair of extra long gloves are also always handy. Much warmer than we normally give them credit for. Plus they save having to cover up most of a beautiful dress with some sort of coat or shawl.
A short post today to get you all into the pre Christmas party mode.
