Come Shopping With Me - A Summer Evening Affair

Like I have been telling you guys, I have lots of weddings to attend in August and since they are similar crowds, I need to find a couple of new dresses. Today I found this cute navy blue dress and coordinating metallic shoes and bags in both designer and non-designer price ranges.

Navy is one of those colors that our Moms used to have shoes dyed to match. You could spend every Sunday for a month trying to find the right shade, but no matter how many stores you checked, you never seemed to come up with anything remotely close. Alas! Worry no more. Tis' the age of metallics. To accessorize this dress, you could choose either a silver or gold heel (whichever you prefer) and match your bag and your jewelry with it.

J. Crew Swiss-Dot Beach Dress, $98.00, Available here

The Designer Gold Look

Lauren Merkin's Eve Metallic Gold Clutch, $180.00, Available here

Pair it with these classically GORG Manolo Blahnik Metallic Halter Pumps. You can buy them online at Bergdorf Goodman. They sell for $565.

The Designer Silver Look

Once you've tried on Brian Atwood's Metallic d'Orsay Pumps, you won't ever want to take them off. They are super comfortable and stylish. These babies won't ever go out of style. You can buy them at and they sell for $545.

I think this is a PERFECT wedding outfit! I love the Navy Blue with the gold. I tried to order the dress for a wedding next weekend, but it's not available until August 21st, Whahh!

Oh my...WOW! Attire must be different here in Ohio...I would, could, never wear such a thing to a wedding, no offense Fab, but we look at the softer side of life...pinks, sea-foam greens, baby blues, you get the picture...anyway, I have several wedding to attend too, and I would not be caught dead in a navy dress or gold/silver accessories, but again, probably just the change in venue. I have never been up-to-date on style living in "hokie" ole Ohio, but I can say the styles we do have are very feminine!

I ADORE Lambertson-Truex. I have a stunning distressed leather bag from them, as well as a couple pairs of shoes, and they are some of the most well-made pieces I own. A lot of their stuff can still be found in sales, but as they gain popularity and a bit of a "cult" following, that's getting harder and harder to find!

I guess so, Mal. I just googled them and they are an American accessories house. Looks like they're carried by Bloomie's and Neiman Marcus.
