One of the evenings on our trip to Maui was to celebrate the award winners, a.k.a my hubby and it was a gala evening. Initially I was at a loss as to what to wear to a gala in Hawaii in January?! Are dark colours appropriate in that climate or are dark colours mandatory since it was formal? I knew I wanted to wear something long versus a cocktail style dress however that style is a lot harder to shop for in Canada since not many of us are wearing maxi dresses at this time of year. After feeling defeated from a couple of different stores, I turned online and looked up my trusty old J.Crew website. I’ve purchased from their wedding and parties section before and really like the chiffon silk. Searching in their sale sections because as much as I love their dresses, they can also be heavily overpriced, I came across this style and loved it. I loved the neckline, the length and it was available in the flowy chiffon I was looking for. I was looking at some of the lighter colours, blush tones and a soft yellow however it was my fellow bookclubbies who suggested that this colour would be much more fitting on my skin tone. The decision was made and once it arrived, I was happy I listened!
