I have a couple of black tie things coming up in the next month, including something tomorrow evening, which is actually more cocktail-y. Tomorrow's is a black & white party for Groundhog's Day (go figure!). Of course, there's the eternal struggle of what to wear.
The only thing about tomorrow's party is that it's in a converted factory and the floor's concrete and it will probably be cold! Gotta really think about what to wear now!
