Wishing I had an occasion to wear this...

My aunt passed down to me this vintage, sequined gown from Saks Fifth Avenue. She bought it to go to a gala to meet Jimmy Stewart. Later she wore it to the 1991 Academy Awards (the year Madonna sang live). I was hoping that the annual Christmas party the company I work for holds would be appropriate for me to wear this to, but the invite says "semi-formal or festive attire." I would definitely be overdressed in this! It's too bad since sequins are so fashionable this season.

I'm also wearing vintage gold earrings that my grandmother passed down to me. Wish you could see them better in this picture, because they really are lovely.
