Tonight, I am headed to the Kennedy Center for a performance of Handel’s Messiah–a Christmas tradition that has become very special to me. It always irks me to no end upon arrival, however, when I realize that many attendees are less than presentable. Perhaps I overdress, but when else do you get the opportunity to really go all out? I have planned a similar look for this evening. Why similar? Because the dress featured here is one-of-a-kind and I wouldn’t be able to show it to you had I purchased it.
(Obviously, if you don’t have it in your plans to join me at the Kennedy Center this evening, I think this look works wonderfully for New Year’s Eve as well!)
