What Should I Wear To A…Wedding:

Next up in the “What should I wear to a…?” series is all about wedding attire.  I happen to love getting dressed up and relish the opportunity to wear my “fancy” accessories.  I recently had a wedding and got lots of comments on where I got my fur stole from and who made my heels.  I decided to write this post because now that the winter is almost upon us (at least the cold certainly is here!), it’s slightly harder to figure out what to wear to a formal affair.  I recreated one of my favorite and classic looks for you here!

The LBD:  I tend to shy away from wearing a little black dress, but in the end I usually come back to one.  I was set on a long lilac gown recently and decided to throw in the towel when it just felt “fussy” and high maintenance (aka it involved boob tape).  When choosing a black dress you still want it to feel special.  Choose a few elements that differentiate it from the pack, like the material, cut or buttons.  In my case, I checked all of these boxes.

Layer on a fur stole:  Especially if you’re spending any time outside, a warm but fashionable coverup is key.  My fur vintage stole kept me warm and also went perfectly with my classic dress.   In the credits below are a couple of fabulous and well priced faux fur varieties.

That’s so clutch:  A fabulous black clutch is a great investment piece.  Of course you’re not wearing it every day, but it feels that much more special wearing it for those memorable nights.  Judith Leiber makes some of the most gorgeous bags with embellishment, and Bottega Veneta’s woven satin clutch is one you can never go wrong owning.

A pair of diamond hoops: I’m a hoops girl.  I wear my Jennifer Fisher’s just as much as I wear my diamond studs.  But for a black tie event I love the idea of wearing hoops encrusted with diamonds.  They feel more youthful and a little less formal than chandeliers.  Two fabulous options are below.  I happen to have gotten mine as a push present for having Colette (aka the Coco in the cashmere), so they’re especially sentimental.
