I don't like "black tie" as I would rather buy a raincoat.  Still..one must honor the occasion.  Trick:  Buy something you can pull apart and wear as separates.  I turned the heat down on the skirt by pairing it with a casual jacket.

Dario the tailor asked me if I made the denim coat since it's lined with mattress ticking.  Oy, I wish I could be so creative.

You do not need to rob a bank to have style.  But you might consider robbing a shoe store if they sell red and white oxfords.
