I’m having my first corporate party soon and of course the first thing that comes to my mind is WHAT DO I WEAR?! I’ve looked online such as on Pintrest, and have tried on things, bought things, and returned things. I am planning to reuse a dress I wore when I took my graduation photos, but now that it’s almost Black Friday and Canada is trying to participate (trying means having sales but never as good as the states,) so I might have another peek. And of course I was/am/still looking at Shopbop, because they have an amazing sale going on!
With the code GOBIG15, the discounts start at 15% off your purchase for orders over $20, 20% off for orders over $500, and 25% off for orders over $1000. I almost hit buy for a pair of Stuart Weitzmans but I really want a new laptop instead. But I can still add stuff to my wishlist, right?! For a corporate party, I am looking for a dress that is sophisticated with a bit of pattern or edge.
The Cape Dress: This BB Dakota Gretchen Cape Dress caught my eye right away. It’s a little black dress that looks SO sleek at for any event. However, with a sleeve dress you can’t really carry a shoulder bag, so something like the Botkier Hampton Clutch would be more convenient. And some nude pumps, like the Stuart Weitzman ones, to add some height and keep the look minimal.
The Fit and Flare Dress: This is one of my favourite styles of dresses; if you find one that fits you perfectly, it’s very ladylike and gives you room to EAT as well, which is what I plan to do when I’m in a dress. I like the monochrome of the J.O.A Flared Mini Dress, and I would pair it with a a nude purse like the Alexander Wang Mini Prisma Envelope Bag, and Lovisa High Heel Pumps.
The Lace Dress: Ever since I watched Gossip Girl in my mid to late teenage years, I’ve been loving lace dresses, especially a red one! I’be been oggling at the WAYF Lace Dress; and I would wear it with my other favourite thing, bows. I think I could pair the Kate Spade Felisha Peep Toe Pumps with almost any outfit in my closet. And just to add on to make this outfit more ‘cutesy/chic,’ I’d go for the Sophie Hulme Mini Box Tote Bag (too bad it’s sold out now…but I guess that’s a good thing for me!)
What do you like to wearing for a holiday party? Throw me your suggestions as I’m still partially hunting haha? The Shopbop sales lasts until November 30th, so there’s still time!
