Last summer I was in Washington D.C. at an image consulting conference, and when I looked out the window, I saw dozens of people all dressed from head to toe in white carrying folding chairs and coolers. I had no idea what was going on.
Was this a church group of some sort? Where were they going? It turns out they were walking to an event called “Diner en Blanc” – an elegant and fun outdoor dinner party where guests are asked to dress in all white.
A few weeks ago I got the chance to attend a similar event. I was invited to the All White Party at the RewardStyle conference. What did I wear?
White is not my best color. I look much better in off-white, or even better, cream. It goes more with my peachy complexion. I didn’t have anything in my closet that was appropriate, so I went out and bought this.
It’s a pretty lace top and cropped pants. I like the classic cut, and the lace was just so pretty and feminine.
I had this necklace, and it seemed to go well with the outfit. It was big but a very soft color, so it didn’t overpower.
My cropped pants were so soft and comfy, and the fit was fantastic. How do you like the Clutch? It’s the Stella Foldover clutch from GiGi New York. It’s monogrammed with my initials in gold. I LOVE this bag, the color the quality….GiGi NY really does fabulous bags and other fine leather accessories.
Another shot here…take a look at my shoes. They are patent leather slingbacks. I think slingbacks are so ladylike, but sexy too.
Finally, recognize these two ladies? Beside me is blogger JoLynne Shane and a new blogger friend from England, Maria from Looking Stylish. You can see more pictures of me with them and read all about the Rewardstyle conference in this fun post.
Have you ever been to a white party? What did you wear?
