The Tiny Heart: Holiday Party

Holiday Party



Dress-Dress Up Boutique(similar Geometric Print Dress), Necklace-Forever 21, Tights-c/o SPANX, Vintage Clutch, Andres Machado Heels

Last Friday I went to my hubby's work holiday party held in a restaurant. He wasn't quite sure of the dress code, so I decided to wear this geometric print dress since it was dressier than what I'd wear to work, but not too formal. I think I fit right in with this dress. 


The people at SPANX kindly sent me a little box of goodies. I decided to wear the Patterned Tight-End Tights for some subtle pattern mixing with the dress. The tights were very comfortable and stayed put the entire night. I'd definitely recommend them!

Some women didn't get the memo that it was a work event and there was a lot of cleavage on display...totally inappropriate! But far worse was that an employee's girlfriend was falling over drunk by 8:45 pm! She kept walking into the table and photo bombed one of my photos. My hubby said she was the talk of the office on Monday....so incredibly embarrassing!

  1. I like the mixing of patterns between your dress and tights...that's hard to do and still look professional! That's really sad about everyone not knowing how to dress appropriately...it why we fashion blogs are here! :)

  11. This dress is stunning on you. Not that you need any help in the slimming area but the side panels makes are so flattering. I am sure the boyfriend was so embarrassed with his gf. It always amazes me that people think party - they think cleavage, short and tight and forget the occasion or host.

  14. I've seen similar at one of my work parties - a fellow employee got wasted and decided to stand on a table and tell off the big boss. Then he stumbled out of the party and never showed up to work again. Yikes.
    Anyway, you look wonderful! Your dress is so flattering and slimming. You look gorgeous, girl!

    I know exactly what you mean about cleavage... Same thing at my husbands work Christmas party. It's like they hear the word party and they think trashy!!! =S

  20. The perfect dress for a party. You look amazing. I like right dresses but I don't dare to wear them because I don't really deal comfortable. But you can wear them obviously!

  23. This dress is so perfect for holiday parties! I agree that it's awful when you see people drunk and showing way too much skin at work events. It's so not classy...

  28. You look great!! I love that dress on you! Yeah... cleavage is NOT appropriate for a work party. My work party had a lot of that too... And drinking that much? No. Just no.

    I can't believe that story but, there's always one person that doesn't get the "these are people I work with" memo.

  36. I think you chose a perfect outfit for a work party! Why do some people still not know what's appropriate to wear/act at work events? No cleavage and no getting drunk should be a NO Brainer!
