Velvet dress any style is the right amount of festive and formal without going overboard. Don’t overdo it on shiny clothing, that’s usually what gets the “overdressed “ mark

Honestly depends on office and venue. I usually do a nice ish dress with black tights and heels I can spend a lot of time in. Boston and NY are usually nicer attire though

Do you keep your automatic replies internal only, or do you use for external (aka client) emails, as well? I’ve gone both ways but have noticed increasing trend to keep internal only. I have a classic situation coming up where my project was delayed, so it is now overlapping with vacation. I am very tempted to go 100% off email (colleagues/clients have my cell) but wondering if this will reflect poorly on me and the firm.
