What I Wore to Dinner – Donna Morgan Shift Dress

Back in May, I had a special dinner to attend.  It wasn’t dressy, but it wasn’t casual either, so it was a challenge to find a dress that would  work for the occasion.  I decided to wear this Donna Morgan Shift Dress, which I’d bought earlier in the Spring.  The one pictured here is available at Amazon.com.  I really liked the style of this dress when I tried it on and fortunately for this 50-something (50+1), the dress comes down closer to the knee.  Here it looks black but mine is navy.  I like the way the print draws your attention to the smallest part of the mid-section and the boat-neck elongates the shoulder line — making the shoulder and hip look more balanced.   The polyester and spandex blend made it very comfortable, too.  I really enjoyed wearing it the whole evening.

I also wore these shoes by Isaac Mizrahi, which are similar to these black pumps with linen white polka dots.  I saw both pairs I knew I couldn’t leave one behind.  I haven’t had an opportunity to wear the black ones yet, but I’m thinking that a meeting and lunch meeting afterward in August, might be the perfect opportunity.

As for accessories, I kept it simple with small silver marcasite earrings and a this Murano Glass Bead Bracelet.  I wasn’t sure about wearing the green and red with the dress, but when I put it on I really liked the way it looked.

The dinner was lovely and I felt great in my terrific outfit!
