I’m an event planner. Basically my job is to organize fancy pants events where people drink too much, eat too much and talk too much. In March I will be in charge of an annual fund-raising gala for a non profit organisation. Each ticket is a few hundred dollars and it’s obviously back tie. I know that every woman should have a little back dress since it's classy and can easily be accessorized. However, there is a problem with the little black dress: every woman has one!!! At each event, I stand in the middle of a sea of black fabric and, though it’s impressive at first, it gets a little boring after a while. So I decided to go crazy! This morning I ordered a cocktail dress from J.Crew (yes, it’s my favorite store) that will certainly differentiate me from…you know…over there…those girls with the black dresses. Since I always go for “cute” and not “sexy”, I will pair it with a nice black cardigan and black kitten hill shoes. If somebody is looking for me that evening, I will be…you know…over there…the girl with the lumberjack silk dress!
