tie wearing women

“When will all this sexism stop?” said Tyrone, when Pointless Letters reached out for comment. “I mean, women go on and on about stuff like wage gaps and body shaming and sexualisation and rape and glass ceilings and all that, but really, who are the real victims of sexism today, eh?

How to Dress for a Night at the Opera

The opera is the quintessential black tie event! But alas, what does one wear to the opera? Other than the requisite opera glasses, the rest is up to you! You can never be too dressed up for the opera, so this is the perfect event to pull out all the stops and really glam it up!

This black silk dress exudes sophistication, while the open back makes it more than just your typical ball gown. The waistband lends an air of menswear chic, but the rest of the dress is purely feminine.
