"Dressing Nice" for Dinner
Ever get that horrible feeling when you go somewhere but you have no idea what everyone else is wearing? You frantically pull a million pieces of clothing out of your closet in hopes of finding something decent to wear and sometimes you're triumphant--but sometimes you're not. Even if there's no dress code per se, I just feel better when I'm in that happy medium of not overdressed or under-dressed.I hate it when the only wardrobe guideline I get is "dress nice" =_____________="
I was invited to the staff Christmas/New Years dinner at Top of Vancouver restaurant on Monday (which makes this post long overdue, ahaha), even though I haven't worked there since summer of 2010 <3
If you haven't heard of it, Top of Vancouver is the revolving restaurant on top of Harbor Centre at Waterfront. The elevator ride up is exhilarating!
I originally met up with my friends in a substantially more casual outfit, but to my horror, the guys had on dress shirts and vests and the girls had skirts and heels... Nuuuuu!!! T______T
So I had to go home and change. Good thing home was only about 50 metres away, ahaha!
When we finally got to the restaurant, we were a good half hour late and everyone was already digging into the buffet! So I grabbed a plateful of food and after the one plate, snuck off to the kitchen in advance to grab the dessert that Joe, the head chef, told us about.
I think I ate a LOT more dessert than real food that night, hahaha. But I couldn't help it! Especially when there was stuff that I could have that wasn't brought out for the rest of the guests... Ahh, the perks of being a favourite LOL :9
Halfway through dessert they set up a DJ station, which would've been fine if it wasn't about 3 metres away from our table! I think I lost some hearing in my left ear that night :(
Made a few failed cam-whoring attempts, but I kinda like one of the results~
This is the amazing view you get from the restaurant~ It's absolutely gorgeous!
