Party Pretty - Vintage, en-Vogue & Versatile

For some unknown reason I have been drawn to two fabulous party dresses this month. both fit and flare but from two totally different eras with two complete different looks!

 I am generally quite thrifty when it comes to fashion, but occasion I do see something that I must have!

This satin and jersey party dress beckoned me the minute I set eyes on it in Macys. I loved it so much that as the branch I was in did not have my size, I drove to another mall to get it! Very rare for me! Especially for something over $100 Canadian.

Well I must have an occasion I need it for, right?  Wrong! I just had to have it!

Here it is styled for work..
