[Music Playing] Hey there, Erin, again here to talk about cocktail dresses. We have all been invited to that illusive cocktail party, business formal, dressy festive, who knows what it is mean. We are going to talk about simple basic that you can anywhere.
Here we have the classic black silk sheet, little short, little fun so you can dress up the legs and also put on the fun pair heels. This can also be worn to a beachfront wedding with nice pair strappy sandals, flats, easy breezy very fun. It is also very easy to pack just fold it right up, it does not wrinkle too much if does just stick it in the shower, ready to go.
Another alternative to cocktail dresses is actually just a cocktail skirt. This is fun for young people in the city. Here is a fun mini-culture just right exciting floppy cocktails for. You can easily wear this with a t-shirt to your friends 30th birthday party, you can dress it up in winter with a dark black turtleneck and dark tights, or you can just wear it maybe with like a bright shirt or just a very simple white bottom down. You can do anything with this. Again, keep it simple easy to pack as well. The best thing about cocktail dresses or any cocktail attire all you have to do is throw it in the shower steam it up and all the wrinkles will fall out.
As I made mention I am in sales so always have to be on sales calls all day, very conservative. Then I always have a client dinner at night. Course some of them are little fancy than other so I wanted it like turn it up just a bit. We did not talk about a few basic pieces. You may have heard Mary just talk earlier about the little black dress. Very simple sheet, very easy, this is great for summer. If it is in winter, you can throw away button down on under or maybe a cardigan over. Course for day want to have a sensible black handbag real easy you can throw all your stuff in there, your notebook, whatever you need for your calls.
Again, for day you want a sensible black shoe that we talk about before, nice round toes, sling back, very professional. But then, when you have that 15 minutes between 6:15 and 6:30 when you have to run for the 7 o’clock dinner. You want to take a couple of minutes freshen up your make-up, maybe put one a little eyeliner. Draw a bright handbag in the mix something a little more cocktailly. And then, you just also want to throw on maybe a little bit higher hill, maybe a little paten mother, a little bit of a sexy pip toe. It is really easy same black dress that you had all day just spruce it up a bit for night.
