Something Borrowed, Something Blue

Dress? Elie Tahari, Off Saks 5th Avenue
Satin peep-toe shoes? Nine West, Winners
Necklace? thrifted and borrowed
Clutch (lying on the ground)? thrifted

My dad has great taste and finds the MOST amazing things at garage sales and antique markets. I wish I had more time to go garage saling with him every Saturday, but maybe it's better that I don't because we would be competing for the same thing. Haha, family fights erupting all over Hamilton lawns on Saturday mornings...
I had many ideas on how to style this dress for the wedding I went to this past weekend, however, when my dad thrifted this beautiful necklace a few weeks ago, I knew it was just right. Often, I will borrow items indefinitely, but because it was just purchased and it looks lovely on my mom too, I did the right thing and returned it this morning. That was very good of me, I think...
The dress is lovely navy chiffon from Elie Tahari. The original price tag said $600 and I got it for.... oh yes, this deserves a build-up.... $33.50!!!! I would like to thank every shopper who left this dress behind, mark-down after mark-down, for me!

Holy moly, that is a helluva bargain for a truly stunning dress! You must've racked up some good karma to land that one, doll.
