A Gala Event

Last Wednesday night was the museum's gala. Though I brought in a number of fancy dresses, as did my coworkers, when it came time to change after the first 7 hours of work all I wanted to do was stay in this supremely comfortable maxi dress. I added some sparkle with earrings and a necklace, slipped on the heels and swapped my hat for a voluminous fall (3/4 wig with some of my hair pulled out at the hairline.) I decided I looked like a sexy vampire... or like I was wearing a nightgown.
* black maxi dress-H&M * silver bow heels--Marc Jacobs * gold necklace-- coworker lent me for the night (thanks, Miri!) * gold chandelier earrings--Express *
More than slightly tired, I snapped a few photos right before changing into pajamas and crashing. The past 2 weeks have been the busiest of my nascent career, and I am so looking forward to relaxing over Sabbath.

Nic's right, that's just gorgeous! This style and the one from the last post are very different - 19th century Gothic novel flair and rather springlike with the white dress and the flower headband - but both are simply beautiful.
