FAIRFIELD — When Gwen Brady gets out of her sheriff’s office uniform, she occasionally slips on something a little different: the little black dress, both literally and figuratively.
“The little black dress does amazing things for you when you put it on,” Brady said.
She would like “professional and sophisticated” Solano County women 21 and older to join her in slipping on that black dress in the evening – or maybe a pair of jeans and a T-shirt with The Little Black Dress logo in the afternoon – and hitting the town for some fun.
Brady, a Fairfield resident who is the new area director for the nationwide women’s social networking organization, The Little Black Dress Club, spent a year shadowing the organization’s Tracy group before announcing the formation of her area, which includes Solano County. The organization hosts events that range from the theater to live music, billiards, bowling and horseback riding.
The group’s inaugural meeting will be a meet-and-greet mixer from 2 to 5 p.m. March 17 at Sticky Rice Bistro, 5030 Business Center Drive.
Brady describes the type of women the group strives to attract as “fun and jazzy.” No one is too old to join, just come with “energy and spirit,” she said. The idea is to foster closeness and positive energy among women.
“The sisterhood is what I’m looking for,” she said.
Brady said “professional” can mean anything from being a professional mother or a professional retiree to being a police officer. Sophisticated references a desire to aim higher and move forward, she said.
“Someone who is always striving for better,” Brady said.
