Effortless Eveningwear

My personal style is so pared back and simple – I can’t deal with fussiness. When it comes to dressing for events, I sometimes struggle. Because I always want to feel at ease and dressing up for me equals discomfort. In the past I’ve tried to step out of my comfort zone, but the result was that I felt like I was wearing a costume all night and didn’t enjoy myself because I was so self-conscious, which is a pretty miserable place to be.

So now instead of trying to fit in, I developed my own dress code – where I look evening appropriate but still feel like myself.
