What I Wore: Black Velvet Little Black Dress

When you work on your feet all day, dressing for comfort is paramount. Since my shoe choices are largely influenced by avoiding to have a podiatrist on speed dial, I really enjoy occasions to dress up and dust off the high heels, not to mention the cocktail dresses. I’ve owned this velvet little black dress for four years now and for some reason never I got around to wearing it until two weekends at my company holiday party. Silly because it fits like a glove and hits at the perfect spot right above the knee.

My secret santa gave me a pair of handmade earrings from her aunt’s Lafayette based store, Bayou Bohemian. I love these black leather and driftwood earrings, they look substantial but are incredibly lightweight. 

The party was held at The American Sector and of course the food was incredible, but then again I’ve never been disappointed by any John Besh restaurant.. I had the shrimp in a cup, the mahi mahi entree, and for dessert we each had a peppermint patty. Last year we went to Domenica for the company party, not a bad habit at all. Did you have a holiday party this year? How was it?
