Black Tie Brunch

Jacket: Aqua, old (similar - on sale!)
Dress: boutique find, similar
Bag: Banana Republic, old
Shoes: Saint Laurent, in black 
Bracelet: Bauble Bar
Earrings: Kenneth Jay Lane

As you may know, last Friday was my birthday, so I spent the weekend celebrating.  On Saturday my friends and I went to a black tie brunch party which is modeled after the brunch parties in New York.  I never turn down an opportunity to dress up (or bottomless mimosas!) and saw it as a perfect opportunity to break out my favorite dress.  

This dress was a total steal.  I saw it in the window of a boutique I'd never been in and tried it on on a whim.  It's now my go to dress for events and it was $60!  Amazing.  All of my friends have seen this dress multiple times since I've worn it to many work functions and weddings.  I do get the occasional odd question from someone wanting to know if I'm wearing something under the blue lace...

Anyway, I also love these shoes (another sale find!), especially the back.  It's great how they tone down the sweetness of the dress.  

Have a great weekend!
