Patricia: Hey, look at you! You’re all decked out. What’s the occasion?

Renaud: I’m going to the Ortegas’s party. Aren’t you?

Patricia: Yeah, but I’m not getting all dolled up for it. I think the dress is casual.

Renaud: I heard that it’s going to be an upscale affair and I don’t want to be underdressed.

Patricia: But I’d rather not be overdressed.

Renaud: Okay, then what are you wearing?

Patricia: I’m going to dress up these jeans with a chic blouse. And then I’m going to accessorize with this necklace as a statement piece.

Renaud: That’s a nice outfit, but it’s more appropriate for a casual event, not a party.

Patricia: But that’s what I’m trying to tell you. This is not a formal affair.

Renaud: Do what you like, but I’m not going to risk being inappropriately dressed for one of the Ortegas’s parties. I don’t want to be blacklisted and not be invited in the future. Their parties are legendary, with the best food, the best booze...

Patricia: Oh, you’re right. What was I thinking?!
