A tried&true styling trick that has served me well over the years:
evening dress + tshirt = day appropriate outfit.
ALTHOUGH, saying that, I am the type of person who is far more likely to dress up during the day than at night, so it's not like I have a huge arsenal of short, spangled numbers...I have a (fairly rational, I think) fear of looking like one of the millions of clone-girls who stumble around on Saturday nights in tiny tight things and enormous heels regardless of the weather (whom, I am not ashamed to admit, I judge. Relentlessly.), so it would have to be a pretty special occasion for me to be rocking this frock solo. I'm sure Mr. Bigeni doesn't mind.
