On Saturday night we were honored to attend an intimate engagement dinner for our friends, hosted by family friends of the bride’s parents. The location was an elegant highrise on the Wilshire Corridor so I wanted to wear something appropriate but with a little kick.

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I don’t normally gravitate towards fitted frocks, but the emerald green hue of this dress had me at hello.

While a  nude or metallic heel would have been lovely, I wanted something a smidge more playful. Luckily, these Valley-of-the-Dolls-pink wedges had just arrived on my doorstep.

Pink and green always feel like a classic combo. It simultaneously reminds me of the Beverly Hills Hotel in the ’50s — or so I imagine — and of East Coast country clubs in the ’80s, which was fitting for the affair, as it was very martinis in the parlor (think Gilmore Girls at Emily and Richard’s, my dream come true!). We had such a lovely night and can’t wait for the wedding. The only question: What to wear?


{What I Wore: DRESS: South Structured Shoulder Ponte Dress c/o; SHOES: Rosalie wedge from Sole Society; BAG: Kate Spade (old but similar here); B&W BRACELET: Vintage Judith Hendler that I got here; CUFF: Kristen McCloud c/o; BRACELET: Stella & Dot Luna Wrap Bracelet (can also be worn as a necklace) c/o; EARRINGS: Club Monaco Crystal Dangle Earrings (sold out, but similar here); RING: Luc Kieffer (old but try eBay and here’s a similar option); NAIL POLISH: Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet; BLUSH: Sephora + Pantone Apricot Brandy blush c/o}
