My husband’s company holiday party is rapidly approaching, and I’m thinking about what to wear. I’m usually all about functionality and repetition, figuring no one really takes note of what I’m wearing, but this annual party always throws me for a loop because...there are photos. They always run a projection of company pictures from the past year, including the previous holiday party.

Should I just get over myself and wear what I did last year? Should I wear what I did two years ago? LBD with a new accessory? What would/do you do?

(By the way, apologies for not being around and responding to your threads. I’ve been reading and admiring, but this time of year is insanity for me. Most of my annual income (and workload!) comes in during the next month and a half.)
