I attended an excellent event that raised funds for Dress for Success Calgary. I decided that if I wanted to feel confident and standout I would have to wear something bright and well fitting. Everyone wears a little black dress paired with a necklace, clutch, or pair of shoes that acts as a pop of colour. That is too safe. I don’t care that your black dress has a bit of lace at the hem…it is boring. I have said it once and I will say it again. You can NEVER standout when you are wearing black.

The dress I am wearing is a made to measure dress made from cotton. You can’t see my shoes in any of the pictures, but they are a deep pink and black high heel that is very comfortable. The jewelry I made and the clutch is a vintage piece I bought from Market Collective!

I attended the event with my friends Joyce (owner of Joyce’s Closet) and Marcela Zafra. You can read the full coverage of the event here.Dress for success calgary gala blue ankara dressStatement chain earrings Dress for success calgary gala blue ankara dress women inspiration
