Marianne: Fancy

Chris and I were lucky enough to be invited to a really lovely wedding last weekend. I so rarely really dress up, so it was nice to get to pull out one of my favorite dresses (and pray that it fit). This Banana Republic silk number is my favorite color and manages to be both flattering and comfortable. It even has pockets!
The evening was cool, so I pulled out this vintage fur wrap. I can't imagine ever buying fur new but I love this 50's wrap. It has straps to keep it on your shoulders and pockets on the inside for your lipstick or a compact.
Rounding things off, a vintage crystal necklace I scored on eBay a million years ago. The silly girl was selling her French grandmother's costume jewelry for pennies. I wish I had bought more.
Lastly, my new favorite red shoes. Red and yellow is a little ketchup-and-mustard, but I like it. And I needed the more sturdy heel, as the wedding was outside. All in all, I felt like I was a modern Mad Men girl.
