A dear friend of mine recently decided to pledge love forever to her number main man. They are planning a winter commitment party. It. Will. Be. Just. The. Best. I was kicking it with her niece a few weeks back who couldn't be prouder to have been asked to be a part of the big day. As we discussed the most pressing question- WHAT TO WEAR?!, she said she didn't love dresses and really wanted to wear red suspenders. I mean. How cool can you be?? I've been thinking about it ever since. I once owned a pair of navy velvet trousers that I wore to threads and also a pair of men's tuxedo pants. Never felt so good as when walking in those slouching down and all buttoned up on top. Menswear as evening wear is just everything. I added a foppish bow tie to smarten it up. And big ole brogues to anchor it all.ASOS.
