Vicarious Dress-Up

Last night, my parents had a black tie event to attend. Due to my Mom's continued weight loss, she had nothing formal to wear. This is where I came in and helped her pull an affordable outfit together that would be appropriate accompanying my Dad's tuxedo. I don't have to many formal occasions to dress for, so I had a really great time helping her out and putting some of my fancier accessories to good use.

The foundation piece: It's on clearance for $25 at Land's End.
I got one for myself at that price!
The statement piece: a $16 bubble necklace from Esty 
The icing: An evening bag from Etsy and a gold disc bracelet. 
The finishing touch:  Kate Spade Gumdrop Stud Earrings


  1. Your mom looks lovely! What a great classic dress you found at LE. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday.

  2. WOW! You did a great job styling your Mom, and she should be proud of these photographs. Great lesson on the power of a statement necklace. So modern!

  3. She looks beautiful! Love the purse.
