"Dressing is a way of life."

                                                                 -Yves Saint Laurent

 

As a continuation of the blog post, "The Party is Here", I've been searching the internet for articles of various dress codes that seem to be popping up on party invitations.  I decided to gather up all the information from these articles and put together a "cheat sheet" to help you discern what is what when it comes to dressing for a party.

Business Formal

        - A business suit or business dress.  A dress with a jacket.

Business Casual

       -Women should wear a combination of a skirt or dress slacks,                 blouse, sweater, twinset, jacket (optional) and hosiery(optional)               with closed toe shoes.

 Casual 

         -If it's a work function,  see business casual and leave the jeans,            shorts and flip-flops at home.  If it's a party with friends, you can            go with jeans and flip flops.

Dressy Casual

          -A seasonal look that's a little more than casual.  Try a sundress             in a bright color with heels/wedges or dressy sandals or a                       jumpsuit/romper. 

Smart casual

           -See "Dressy Casual" above.  Cynthis Nellis at About Style                      defines "Smart Casual" as, “dressed-up versions of casual                      looks.”  A knee-length skirt is acceptable as well. Again, avoid                shorts, worn and holy jeans,  t-shirts, and flip flops for this                      casual dress code.

Cocktail  (aka semiformal)

           -A "Little Black Dress" (LBD) and statement jewelry always                      works for this dress code .  Women can wear knee-length skirts            or dress pants with a nice sweater or blouse, or go for the                      classic “little black cocktail dress.” or short dresses that are                  party-ready.

Garden Attire or Beach Formal

           -A maxi dress with flat sandals (no flip-flops) is the perfect                      option for this up and coming dress code

Barnyard Chic 

            -If the event is in a barn or on a farm, you really can wear                         cowboy boots with a dress. Checks are really popular this                       season, so a cute checked dress would be fun!

Black Tie

             - A long gown and heels.  If you don't want to invest in a long                  gown, you can get a way with a very dressy cocktail dress.

Black Tie Optional (aka formal)

              -A long or short dress with bold jewelry work well.

White Tie

              -This is the most formal dress code of all and usually                               pertains to balls and state dinners. So when you're invited to                   dinner with the President, wear a floor-length evening gown                   with long gloves.


Creative Black Tie

               - You can wear a Formal evening gown, dressy cocktail dress,                your dressiest black dress with fun statement jewelry.

Semiformal

              - Short cocktail dress in black or color.  A long dressy skirt                      and top or other dressy separates.

 So get to that party in style!!!

  • My ex-husband and I had always managed to stay friendly after our divorce in February 2017. But I always wanted to get back together with him, All it took was a visit to this spell casters website last December, because my dream was to start a new year with my husband, and live happily with him.. This spell caster requested a specific love spell for me and my husband, and I accepted it. And this powerful spell caster began to work his magic. And 48 hours after this spell caster worked for me, my husband called me back for us to be together again, and he was remorseful for all his wrong deeds. My spell is working because guess what: My “husband” is back and we are making preparations on how to go to court and withdraw our divorce papers ASAP. This is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you Dr Emu for your powerful spells. Words are not enough.

  • I have seen and experienced the reason why people call Dr Amber a God on Earth. I never believed that men like him existed. I contacted Dr Amber for help on how to win a lottery mega millions after reading different testimonies on the internet on how he gives lottery winning numbers to people to play and they won. He responded and said that he will cast a spell to get my winning numbers for the lottery. I provided his requirements as he instructed. After casting the spell he gave me some numbers and a lottery website where I was destined to win. I played the lottery as he instructed and after 4 days I heard that there was a winner and I had to check for mine and I discovered I was the winner of Two Million Dollars. This man has made my life beautiful with his lottery winning number. I have made a vow to myself that I will testify of his miraculous work. If you need his help, call +13183065044 or WA +12096910783 or email, amberlottotemple@yahoo.com

Finally my dreams came through when i contacted Dr. OSE and tell him i needed the lottery winning special numbers cause i have come a long way spending money on ticket just to make sure i win.
