My office does not do casual Fridays. Because of this, most of us really look forward to the only 2 casual dress days we have! They are: Go Texan day and our Christmas eve half day. As much as I look forward to being able to dress down on the weekends, its just as nice to dress up even more! Saturday night Brandon and I attended a black tie event. Besides weddings, we've never been to this formal of an event together, so I was looking forward to it. I bought a new dress and shoes; had a manicure/petticure and Brandon rented a tux. We bid/bought a couple of items at the silent auction and had a really nice dinner with some of Brandon's co-workers. Overall we really had a great time. The theme was designing/building "green" buildings, so the event was actually "black or green tie" (note Brandon's color choice for tux vest and tie).
