What Does A Minimalist Wear to the Hospice Gala?

The same thing that she wears to other formal occasions, with different accessories.

The classic black dress.


Party Girl!

I wear this dress to weddings, funerals, any occasion that requires I be more dressed up that my usual day to day. Since I only have a couple events like this per year, nobody notices that I am wearing the same thing. I am particularly fond of this black dress due to its classic and flattering cut, it is washable and it has pockets! I love the pockets. I put my Gala ticket in one and my keys in the other. The sandals are mine. The necklace is borrowed. The hairstyle and earrings are what I wear every day.

    And as for pockets: every dress, every skirt, every pair of pants should have pockets!

    • Agreed! Every outfit should have pockets.

    • Lands End has 100% cotton pants in 4 lengths, DEEP POCKETS, elastic waist, called Sports Knit pants for just under $30 ea. I’ve worn them exclusively for 15 years. A cotton jacket, also black, comprises my wedding/funeral outfit, usually with black Birkenstocks. You look fetching, Fawn!

Two of them are somewhat strechy so I could even wear them when pregnant!
