Wondering what to wear?


Do you cringe when you open an invitation to an event?  If so, you are not alone. Choosing the appropriate attire for events can be difficult. Here is a general rule of thumb for cocktail attire.

At the end of the day, dress real pretty, dress real fine, dress for fun, because it’s a party when all is said and done!
