For the first time in my life, I was invited to a Bar Mitzvah, and, to be honest, I have no idea what to wear to this event. I read opinions online that an evening dress is too much for this sort of celebration. Since it is a religious event, a short dress is also not appropriate. At the same time many bloggers state that your dress should not be too conservative as it is a celebration…
In other words, I became completely lost with all these contradictory suggestions and couldn’t figure out what to wear. Finally, after studying of my wardrobe, I decided to choose this pink petal cocktail dress by J.Crew that I bought a long time ago and never had a chance to wear. It is feminine but does not look like a prom dress. The dress has an interesting neckline and is made from a great quality silk. I haven’t decided yet whether I will be wearing the headpiece that you see on the photo or not but I will definitely wear those silk shoes and the matching satin clutch.
I have many more dress options for this event but I would like to hear your opinion about this first look. Do you think it will be appropriate attire?
