Besides September, which happens to be my birthday month, one of my favorite months of the year has to be December. My schedule seemingly begins to fill up with a plethora of holiday parties held by various friends. From casual cocktail parties, ugly sweater parties, Hanukkah dinners & your occasional black tie event, December is truly a joyous month.
This past weekend I had a dilemma, with my recently trip back from Africa being delayed by half a day, I had only about 6 hours to pull together a head-to-toe formal look for a Christmas Party held at the State Library of Victoria. Talk about pressure! With my go-to party suit being currently shipped from America to Australia, I was completely dependent on putting together a complete look from off the rack with absolutely no time to get a made-to-measure suit. Luckily Zara was the perfect place to find a fashionable ready-to-wear look.
Besides my shoes & bow-tie, this whole entire look was styled using clothing by Zara, what was best of all is that altogether it cost around $250, that includes the shirt & belt! I could not believe I pulled off such a feat! The night was a complete success & I was blown away with the impressive venue. Something about enjoying cocktails & good company in such a serious & prestigious place adds a special touch to a memorable evening!
