"Where's the reunion going to be again?" I asked Mr. Maven.
"Oh, some really fancy hotel in downtown L.A." he answered.

A few minutes later the panic hit: What am I going to wear?

It's been years since I went to an event at a fancy hotel or similar place, I can't even remember when it was.

During the the pandemic I've experimented with color, with casual styles, and lots and lots of shoes for my ailing feet. Shoes! Yikes--forget the outfit: what will I wear on my feet?

Okay--12 years ago went to Mr. Maven's 40 year law school reunion. Nice affair in the Faculty Club. I can't find the photo of what I wore then, but there were only 18 of his former classmates there out of a class of about 110. Now it's going to be his 52 year reunion.

Tomorrow I'm going to start trying on outfits, but today my panic was shoes. I've been wearing "comfort" shoes the last 2 1/2 years. I have one pair of nice shoes: AGL, many years old. Right shoe hurts foot now. Looked online, ordered 2 pair Munro from Nordstrom, one from NAS. Anyone tried these?

Because of my problem feet the planning starts with my shoes.

I think I'll wear some nice jewelry and take a Chanel bag.

Any advice on what kind of outfit to wear to a nice event at a fancy hotel during these almost post-Covid times? If you've been to such an event, what are people wearing these days? (Can't believe I'm asking this, but I've been staying home for a long time.)
