LE DEFI SAC DU SOIR
Here is my challenge: what bag to wear to a very formal charity dinner.
No, I do not intend to wear miles of tulle or Satin Duchesse nor do I wish to arrive covered in sequins or shoehorned into a sleek "liquid velvet" number.
No, I'll wear one of my usual, tried and true, safe black wide black crepe pants, with a plain cardigan-style chiffon jacket and black silk jersey shell and patent leather platform heels. I do not like to look endimanchee (too much "Sunday best") not even for very dressy affairs.
Now, for the inevitable bag. A clutch is the best as it is large enough to hold the evening necessities including the checkbook for the silent auction, driver's licence and a few bits and pieces of make-up.
Here is what I was thinking:
Feminine lace? maybe a bit much
Sleek patent leather? too "matching-the-shoes"
a vintage piece? I wear mine ALL the time, I need a change
Maybe gold? no, too flashy
I know! I'll pull out my vintage chartreuse snake skin Calvin Klein and wear my long slightly "off tone" chartreuse chiffon shawl.
Yes, let's wake up all the black.
Oh, and long earrings to jazz it all up.
