As I mentioned in an earlier post, I was invited by Disney to attend a series of screenings and behind-the-scenes previews of a number of upcoming films, At the top of the list was the red carpet premiere of Tim Burton’s new film, Frankenweenie. I have posted my review and will be posting an interview with the young voice actors from the film over at GeekDad soon, but right now I’ll tell you about the premiere and star-studded after-party.

As we’ve previously mentioned, one of the best ways to afford the finer things in life is to stop spending so much on the ordinary things. One of those monthly bills that always seems to be creeping upward is the TV; whether it’s cable or satellite, it seems the bill goes up a little every month, and before you know it, that $18 package has crept up to $74, and that’s without any premium channels or movie packages.

We’ve talked a bit about that “I don’t belong here” feeling, and the best way to overcome it is to look like you belong there. The way to do that is simply to dress the part. After having made several dubious fashion choices in the past (including a cordury suit *shudder*), I’ve finally learned how to do it, and I’m going to tell you what I’ve learned.

The first time you go to a black-tie affair, especially if you’re there on a freebie, because of a barter or because you did volunteer work or because you’re somebody’s guest, you may feel awkward and out of place. You’re not used to dressing up; you may be embarrassed that your car isn’t as new or upscale as the other guests; you may worry that your clothes aren’t fancy designer labels or the height of fashion. That’s normal. Don’t let it stop you.
