Well, if I'm spending my Saturday night doing responsible work things like a responsible adult, at least those things involved dinner and a cocktail dress.
Earlier this week, I noticed that the invitation for this evening's dinner (a work thing for the Lunar New Year) had a "black tie optional" dress code. After consulting the internet and several fashionable friends, it was determined that "black tie optional" meant I was safe with a cocktail dress and a sparkly bag.
(Sidenote: this dress has pockets. Every dress should have pockets.)
However, for at least three women at the event tonight, "black tie optional" meant "I can totally wear my wedding dress!"; for a half-dozen other women, it meant jeans and sweaters. The horror.
