Your After 8 P.M. Purse

Out Dancing

When you’re in the mood to dance, you don’t want to deal with a clunky purse, so choose a slim envelope bag with a chain so you have the option of holding it like a clutch or wearing it over your shoulder as you make a b-line for the dance floor.

As for your makeup, dancing is one of the few times when you can go heavy on the glitter. Bring some all-over shimmer and a glitzy lip gloss in bright red or pink. Dancing under the strobe lights can leave you slightly sweaty, so bring some oil blotting papers to keep you fresh-faced. And when your favorite guilty pleasure song comes on, you don’t want to be stuck on the sidelines because your feet are killing you. Pack some extra heel inserts so you can dance well past last call.
