Black & Gray


Like all of you, I am getting to the point where I can't count how many holiday parties I've attended. Yes, yes, I know, "Cry me a river!" Honestly, they've mostly been work-related events (OK, with a cookie swap and a blogger party thrown in); I actually missed a friend's party I really wanted to attend. Even so, I've been busy the past week inventing appropriate outfits. We've talked before about alternative holiday ensembles, and party multi-taskers. But what about a look for your significant others' company party?

This is like the "meet the parents" of corporate events. You want to look your best and be on your best behavior, because your actions don't just reflect you, they reflect your significant other! I like to go ultra classic - if you need to throw in some whimsy, do it with accessories (like this bow headband or some patterned tights).

Are you attending a function with your significant other's colleagues? What are you wearing?
