That's "What Should I Wear?"
The Occasion: A reception celebrating exceptional graduate students and post-docs. (That's me, apparently.)
Time: Cocktail hour (nibbles and drinks served)
Dress Code: Business casual
Situation: I will likely be walking (so what else is new?) and coming directly from my tutoring meeting about a mile away from the location.
Weather: About 7 C, unseasonably warm, sun with possibility of showers. (Does this mean BOOTIES vs. BOOTS?? ) Whoooooooot!! :) :) :)
Other notes: I am obviously one of the older grad students being honoured in this way and am likely to be confused with a professor (which is fine with me, since I'm that, too, but I don't want to discomfit any other grad students). I'm also one of the only (maybe the only) student honoured this way for a highly interdisciplinary arts-based project, so I feel the need to wave the flag for arts-based research in some visible way. In fact, this is the only reason I am going -- I want people to understand that artistic practice can be based in important research, and more, can itself represent significant research.
So my question....what should I wear? I know, not denim. But what would be a good looking, not too stuffy, a bit creative looking....help appreciated!
And yes, I'll do some playing and experimenting with ensembles. :)
