Gallery Openings


(Dress by Banana Republic (outlet), Shoes by Payless, Bracelets by Sirens, Necklace by Tiffany & Co.)   

We had our first opening of the season at the gallery on Saturday and this is what I wore.  You might be thinking that gallery openings are fancy-schmancy and perhaps I should be wearing heels or something like that.  You might also think that people get dressed up to come to these shin-digs.  Well I am here to tell you that both of those things are false!  Yes, gallery openings are a special occasion so I like to wear something nice.  Usually a dress, or a skirt.  But heels?  No.  During the week, at my job, there are various tasks which come up that heels might not be suited to (think: crating a painting), but a lot of the time I am sitting at a desk, so if I were so inclined, I could wear heels.  But at openings, I am standing the whole time, walking around on the gallery's concrete floors, talking to people.  Heels are just not worth it.  There is a caveat, however.  Most of our openings are on Saturday afternoons, which has a casual feeling to it.  Occasionally we will have an opening in the evening, which calls for being a bit dressier.  I might wear heels to one of these events.  Might.

  1. I love that color it looks so good with every skin tone. I believe-(obviously my opinion is biased since I refuse to wear heels cause I find them terribly uncomfortable)- that women tend to put to much stress on the whole heel wearing stuff. You look lovely and don't look any less dressy just because you are wearing flats. If the flats are cute they look just as great as heels in my opinion. :)
