Today I went to a 50th birthday party. It was at a fancier restaurant on the first floor of a 4 star hotel. These situations always make me feel socially inept. Can you all tell me what would have been the proper thing to wear? There was everything from jeans and cargo pants to a lady suit. (I ended up wearing Khaki pants and a knit top)
I would have worn a dress, mostly because I love dresses and have heaps that don't get nearly enough wear. I also over dress for most things as if I am going out I like to get proper dressed up so nice outfit and heels usually
I would say at least 75% had a dress/skirt on, and I felt a little silly not knowing that is how it would be. Before Christmas I went to a Christmas party though and I was the only one in a dress. Everyone else had on pants.
