I picked up this floral embroidered dress at the Teri Jon sample sale a few months back for my brother's wedding. When they changed the color to navy a couple weeks before, I had to scramble to find another look - seen here. Luckily a week after his wedding I had another family affair so I finally got to wear my amazing dress.
This confection is a one-of-a-kind sample and was never produced. It makes me feel like I just walked out of a Dolce & Gabbana dream. I matched up the shrug at the sale and it honestly looks like it came together. I love sample sales for pieces just like this. Special. Unique. And it's the closest I'm gonna get to couture.
When I got the dress I immediately matched up my Kotur clutch from the Net a Porter sale. For some reason I don't seem to have a black satin evening shoe (go figure?!) so I matched up my patent leather Charlotte Olympia sample sale heels.

Thank you to my photographers. My husband got a little grumpy after 10 minutes of shooting (it's hard to tear him away from a smorgasbord) so I enlisted my SIL who was a good sport but took lots of blurry photos. I also grabbed a cousin who took the wall pics. It takes a village, people. I can't always take my trained Insta kids with me :)
So fashion week has begun. I hit several shows last week and I have a bunch this week too. Be sure to follow my Insta stories for a peek inside my adventures!
