Casual: Engagement Party

A friend got engaged last night.  Hooray!  A surprise party was thrown at La Tasca.  Tapas!  He had the element of surprise and dressed for the occasion with a nubby, linenesque white button-down oxford with a skinny black tie, black slacks, black shoes, and hair which had been died green but had wizened into a sort of blondish.  His betrothed just thought it was a dinner date and wore an excellent cocktail dress.  (That is the extent of my ability to describe women's clothing in prose.)

For my part, I wore a pink cotton button-collar oxford, top two chest buttons undone and sleeves rolled, from (you guessed it) Paul Fredrick (clearance); a Polo Ralph Lauren belt (outlet); J. Crew outlet shorts; and white bucs from Johnston & Murphy (outlet).  It was a hot and humid night, so the lightweight materials were a sure bet. 

On a related note, I am beginning to suspect that these bucs are the ultimate summer dressy-casual shoe.
