evening out on the town in NYC. So we gave her some ideas and guidelines and sent her shopping. She then sent us photos of her top 4 choices and we picked the simple, silk, DKNY number. Here is her follow-up letter:
Dear Glam Gals,
- I wore the turquoise/green dress you suggested and got a new black belt. The party was very crowded and dark as a cave, however since my dress was colorful, it was a huge hit. The birthday girl took one look at me and screamed ” You look amazing!” I felt comfortable and confident in this dress and much more relaxed and festive than if I had worn something else. I think the key to this dress was that it was a simple comfortable style in a soft fabric but a BOLD color. It felt appropriate but not that I was trying too hard to be fashionable and young. In NYC these days, cocktail means dresses and only older women wear pants!
(P.S. As I was getting dressed, I almost lost my nerve to wear the green dress. I put on a pair of skinny black pants and a beige cashmere cami and evening cardigan. When I looked in the mirror, I felt the energy drain out of me. I threw them off, put the green dress back on and had an amazing time. If I had worn my usual black and beige, I would have looked and felt invisible.)
So glad you didn’t chicken out and wear black!! Sounds like you had a wonderful time! BTW…we came upon another photo of your dress, just accessorized a little more casually. Just think, now you can dress it down and wear it to your next networking event and have 2 dresses for the price of one!

SO… Deb was thrilled with this photo and just so happened to have a black jacket already in her closet. Here she is in her dress, accesorized casual and dressy.
We suggest that she could even try a brown belt and leopard shoes! Wow…that could be fun!
