@AnonymousCupcake:  I would only worry that it’s strapless, but I’m a busty girl and can NOT get away with strapless anything! However, if you were comfortable in the strapless, I feel as though it would be appropriate. It’s also beautiful!

I think that’s fine! I’d make sure to wear fun jewelery with it as opposed to CZ or gemstone formal jewelery!

@AnonymousCupcake:  I would either go big and gold or big and bright!

Hi @AnonymousCupcake:  Etiquette Snob here… lol

Most Christmas Parties / Dinners & Dances that I have been to over the years have either been Semi-Formal, or Business.

If it is Semi-Formal or Formal you will be dressed perfectly.

If it is to be Business wear, then you will over dressed.

Is there someone you can ask on what is the norm… what people have worn in the past etc ?

To @AnonymousCupcake:  Have you met casually / socially any of his Female Colleagues OR Male Colleague’s Wives ?

That might be a starting point.

IF NO, well you could always call the HR Dept and make inquiries as to what has happened in the past

Hope this helps,

@AnonymousCupcake:  I think it’s perfect! I agree with you that it sounds semi-formal by the time and location… If you can’t get any information beyond what you already have I’d go with it- personally I’d rather be overdressed than underdressed!

I think the dress you have picked should work fine.
