Black & Gold



Last weekend I had a family wedding in Long Island so I jumped at the chance to play dress up. I always feel most like myself all dolled up. It's funny but casual looks are always more work for me. I pulled out my new sequin dress from the Rack that I scored for 50% off at their post-Christmas Clear the Rack. I tried to wear new shoes but these Charlotte Olympias are insanely comfortable and make my legs look a million miles long. For accessories I had a few new sample sale scores that I matched up.

From head to toe:
  • Earrings: A.V. Max, sample sale, $4
  • Dress: Halston Heritage, Nordstrom Rack, $90 (retail $525)
  • Bag: Rafe Mary Alice clutch, sample sale, $95 (retail $398)
  • Bracelet: A.V. Max leather cuff, sample sale, $10 (retail $80)
  • Shoes: Charlotte Olympia x Agent Provocateur Bellatrix, sample sale, $150 (retail $895)
I'm also wearing Toxic Tale by MAC on my lips again. It's a bright coral that's a refreshing alternative to red. All my eye makeup is by Korres because it's the only brand that doesn't irritate my eyes. Check out their amazing mascara here and their eye liners here.



You can shop my look below. None of these pieces are available so I selected similar pieces :)



I usually try to camouflage my derriere but sometimes I have to embrace my inner Kardashian.  When I try to cover it up it tends to look larger so I just went for it. I squeezed myself into this size 4 (I am so NOT a 4 right now) - luckily it has lots of stretch. I did use a bunch of safety pins to keep it shut. I'll be bringing it back to the tailor at the Rack tomorrow to put in snaps so I don't have to worry about anything popping open.

Strangely enough nobody made any comments on my dress (good or bad) which totally threw me off. If I don't get a reaction I'm not doing my job LOL. I thought I looked pretty good.













And that's all folks! A huge thank you to my BIL for being a good sport and shooting me. My husband took a few pictures but I don't think I used any of his this round.

Would love to hear what you think :)
