Personal Style: The White Party

Lace dress and black clutch Last week I had the opportunity to attend a "White Party" black-tie fundraiser benefiting Child & Adolescent Treatment Services put on by PEAR Event Planning (I'l have more details about this in a separate post!)  The event took place at the University of Buffalo Center for the Arts atrium and I was so excited because I've never been to a fancy-shmancy party before.

There was a strict dress code for the event.  Guests could only wear black or white evening attire, which was pretty exciting for me because I love to dress up.  I was going to pull the usual LBD out of my closet, but I decided to don a fantastic white (cream) lace dress for the night!

Colored accessories were permitted, and since the dress had a shimmery nude/gold underlay, I went with my fantastic pair of gold glitter heels, a beautiful gold and jeweled floral statement necklace, and a black clutch which flashed purple in the light.

White is not just a summer color!  Winter white looks so fabulous with dark accessories and a rich lip color.

Do you wear white in the winter?
