It's confusing when an invitation calls for "business/cocktail attire." Dress up or dress down? But the real answer is dress great. And that's exactly what Melinda Stubbs did for the Youth Development Center Bon Vivant fundraiser where guests dressed in the full spectrum of dinner attire.

The sleek Melinda confesses that she chose the only thing in her closet that fit comfortably after she added a few inches during the annual holiday frolic.

She stepped out in a black sleeveless dress by Laundry, a find at Neiman Marcus. Her purse, a furry tote, was by Kate Spade. And the boots were Stuart Weitzman.
