Dress Code, revisited

Monday, 14 November 2011 12:00 AM Written by 

As you may have read in my last post, over the weekend I went to my first event at the Duquesne Club. This swanky establishment downtown does have a dress code, which I was made aware of before the event. 

I dressed according to this code. I wore a black, structured shoulder top, red wool pencil skirt almost to the knee, black tights and black heels. What I thought was proper.

When I went to the event, I was blown away by the attendees I saw breaking this code: Sequins dresses, dresses too tight on the butt, high stripper-like heels, etc. 


And I was worried over my skirt length.  When an establishment has a dress code, I believe it should be properly enforced. That's just my personal opinion. I extend the question I asked in my last post: What do you think? Should establishments properly enforce dress their dress codes?
