Tonight I headed to Buca di Beppo in north Austin for a company dinner. I sported this outfit in the office this morning, and decided to go ahead and wear it for the evening. Since Buca is a fairly casual restaurant, I didn’t feel the need to dress up too nicely. But this wasn’t your average company dinner; this dinner had executive members from fortune 500 companies that just happen to be our company’s clients. So yes, an impression needed to be made.
I walked into the restaurant not knowing what to expect. Everyone was already seated and making dents into their respective meals, while casually sipping on red wine. The environment was casual and it was nice to be able to pick the brains of these top executives without the fear of being judged too much. Of course, there was the question of “Would you like some red wine?” And then the table realized I was underage. The joys of being the youngest person at the office, right? Nevertheless, they seemed impressed and overall, it was a night worth documenting, if not just for my fairly cute outfit.
