The office Christmas dinner was the 17th. I like to get something new and Christmasy for this event. In the past, we've gone to some rather ritzy restaurants, where jacket and tie and sequins and velvet were the rule over Christmas. This year, we decided to go a bit more casual and chose Claim Jumper. I had never been there.
Now, I really can't afford new clothes. I have more than I really need now and my money is better spent being applied to other things. But the desire for something new at Christmas is very strong.
Viola. It's like I have two new sweaters. I found a jacket down in the pile that I also washed. This isn't for a lot of dry clean only items but I think, for these sweaters, it's perfect. I did go get a pair of brown twill pants to go with this sweater. I can use a pair of brown twill pants for work and they were on sale. I wore this with a red turtleneck.
I was overdressed.
