I am tired of black frocks, so this year the theme is Gold. This interesting number (and its semi-decent price point) won out over the rest of the inventory in their small store on Union Street.
I really like how the color is very festive, and a simple classic silhouette, and I've never owned a lacey anything really, so why not, right? But now that I have it at home the paranoia set in: does it look too much like lingerie? Is it too close to the color of my skin?
I'm going Black for my clutch and shoe accessories, mainly because that's what I already have in my closet. My Kate Spade clutch has gold-colored details so it's a nice match to the gold of the dress. My shoes are black patent, which matches the patent trim of the clutch. I will probably buy a black shawl for my shoulders. I plan to wear my hair in a low, curled ponytail.
