What’s black and white and red all over?

A newspaper? A zebra?

Nope…this weekend, it’s going to be me! I didn’t mean for it to be my weekend theme, it’s just happened to work out that way.

 I have two holiday parties with my new man friend. Eeeek. Just the thought of it all has my stomach in knots.

Holiday party one is his firm’s holiday party. Old lawyers and their spouses…young lawyers and their special lady friends. I’m so nervous. I was told it wasn’t formal (no ties/ cocktail dresses). This is what I’ve managed to come up with… I’m dying to do a red lip. Do you think it’s too much?

Saturday is a casual party at his brothers. Don’t worry, I will not be wearing a red satin bra, just a red and black halter that’s from Kensie last season. This was the closest picture I could find.

I’m super pumped to get to wear my favorite shoes!! The only thing is that they kill my feet…nothing a few cocktails can’t help.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

PS- Perhaps if you’re lucky I will take a few pics this weekend!

  1. SJ, you’re gonna look great!! Have so much fun. Drink a glass of wine when you get the party and things will be smooth sailing after that. I went to Porter’s office party last week and YIKES! People spilled their guts to me – it was very interesting.

    Guess what dress Porter got me for Christmas? That’s right! The one you have in white and black but mine is red! Yay!

  2. I love both of those outfits (and of course the shoes!) I don’t think red lipstick will be too much at all.

    As for being nervous about the firm party…I was nervous about my boyfriends work part as well (similiar crowd as the one you’re going to) so I just had a cocktail when I got there and everything was fine. I had him fill me in on the important people I’d meet ahead of time, which also made things easier.

    Have fun! I can’t wait to hear about it afterwards.

    xo,
