My husband and his company are having a cocktail party for the company anniversary. It sounds like it is going to be a really good time and a lot of fun but I do not own a cocktail dress. I went to some local shops to buy one but the prices were so insane. There was no way in heck I was paying a price like that for a tiny dress I am going to wear one time. I will be buying one online but after seeing the prices, I think I may buy two cocktail dresses. It would be nice to have a couple in the closet in case an event like this pops up again. My husband has been with this company for 15 years and they have never had a celebration like this but it happened once so it can happen again. The company is making some major changes so maybe this is how they will start doing things.
