A Fellowship Reception on a week night from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. sounds like a cocktail party. Being at the Russell Senate Bldg. in Washington DC means special event based on the location. Here is where you can put your LBD (Little Black Dress) to work. You can wear an LBD just about anytime. You can wear it with or without jewelry and with black heels with ultra sheer neutral or sheer black stockings. If your dress is simple in style wear a piece of statement jewelry that draws attention to your face. Be sure you have an up to date hairstyle and flattering makeup.
Party Dress Codes
It is almost always exciting and fun when a party invitation arrives. However sooner or later we have to start to think about what we will wear. When types of “dress codes” are indicated such as “Smart Casual”, “Cocktail Party attire,” “Tailgate Party”, “festive”, “cocktail chic” or etc. it can throw us for a loop. Where should one begin to figure out what any of these types of dress codes mean?
Jewelry That Makes A Statement
Jewelry that makes a statement sends a message about who you are and what you value, conveys confidence and can make an outfit chic. I think what you notice first about someone is their personal statement. A piece of jewelry that catches your eye when you see a woman qualifies as a “statement” piece of jewelry. Something that stands out from everything else.
