My Mom taught me that you always get the dress, before you know you need it. You buy in advance so that you're not running around a week before an event searching and inevitably settling on something you don't necessarily love.
I found this dress in January at Saks in Los Angeles. Did I have anywhere to wear it to? No. But the colour was perfect, the shape was fun and I knew it was only a matter of time before I could debut this piece. Fast forward a month later and I've been invited to the Brit Awards, the UK equivalent of the Grammy's.
Since it was a music industry event, I knew my fun two tone dress would be perfect. Before leaving I checked the iternerary for the night; at 3PM we took the Warner Music label boat to the O2 arena, where dinner was served, the show started at 7 finished by 10pm, and we returned on the boat only to be brought to the after party. That's a long night, roughly 8 hours, and if you remember from this post-- nothing beats comfort. With comfort in mind, I opted for these shoes and felt wonderfully at ease the entire night.
Highlights: Seeing Adele, listening to Adele sing, meeting Ed Sheeran, Boy George sighting, Rihanna's performance, boat ride with Bruno Mars and being in the same room as....Adele.
Have any of you bought a dress before you needed it? Only to find the perfect place to wear it months later. Please share!
