WIW 10.25.13 Part 2 - Dressed to the 9's

I feel like I'm going to the prom, lol.

Going to a cocktail party at the Seattle Aquarium with my husband and his work mates.

I tried the snakeskin pumps Jenava recommended in another post, but the tone was off, sadly. They would have been much more fun than these beige pumps.

I couldn't find a clutch I liked either, but I'll keep looking.

    You look gorgeous in that dress, Amy!
    I like the nude pumps- they don't distract from your pretty dress.

  • carter replied 7 years ago

    Beautiful! Great cut for you...very flattering. You've inspired me to wear my long double strand of pearls. Haven't worn them in ages, but they look so fab on you I'll have to get my huband to take me out to dinner this weekend so I can wear them. Have fun tonight!

    Simply adorable!!!

  • Helenedith replied 7 years ago

    You look so glamorous. You will reach for that lovely dress again and again

    Going to the aquarium? You won't have to fish for compliments in this; you look too adorable!

  • Beth Ann replied 7 years ago

    This is crash-helmet worth, Amy!  Such a beautiful dress that still lets you shine.  Your hair looks terrific, too.

    Hope you had a great time!

  • CocoLion replied 7 years ago

    Please hand me a green lace crash helmet because you are *that* breathtaking in this outfit!  You may be "dressed to the 9s" but this outfit is an 11!

  • dlb1960 replied 7 years ago

    Fabulous!! Gorgeous!! Feminine!!

  • replied 7 years ago

    Wow, what a gorgeous dress! You look stunning.

  • Ornella replied 7 years ago

    Oh WOW. Amyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy.....

    I remember when you linked to this dress... It looks so great on you. Like drop dead gorgeous. I vote your hubby has work parties more often!

    And the pearls...
    And the coat...

    permission to faint?????

    (This thread means I absolutely must add teal lace dress on my Needs list.)

  • Mona replied 7 years ago

    Absolutely gorgeous dress. Hope you had fun.

  • Aquamarine replied 7 years ago

    You look fabulous...another WOW! Agree the shoes are perfect. I have become a huge fan of nude shoes. They really let the dress take center stage.

  • Day Vies replied 7 years ago

    I am not sure that any woman wearing those exact same pieces could look as radiant and HAPPY as you do. I LOVE the coat and gloves -- unexpected silhouette . This is a perfect example of you wearing the pieces and owning them rather than when people letting the pieces wear them. I'm curious to know what reactions you experienced as a result. This is lovely!

  • viva replied 7 years ago

    Amy, you look amazing! I love the shape and color of the dress, and I was completely sold even before you showed that super little jacket. Hope you had a wonderful time at the prom!! :)

  • Tanya replied 7 years ago

    You look stunning Amy!  Very Mad Men in the best possible sense.

  • Zapotee replied 7 years ago

    Talk to me about this dress. I love it, I want it!
    You look so beautiful. I hope you had an amazing time.

  • replied 7 years ago

    Wowzer! You look amazing! Dress, coat and shoes, all fab.
    Sadly I have never been to a cocktail party in my life :( Enjoy it  for me. :)

  • Amy replied 7 years ago

    I had the best time last night! I've never been to a "real" cocktail party either, but it was so much fun. I'm pleased to report that I was not overdressed at all. My husband cleaned up real nice too. I only wish he hadn't left it until the last minute so I could have snapped a picture of him too :)

    Thank you so much for all of your nice comments.

    Zapotee, the dress is this one: http://tinyurl.com/khzv2ok

    It will be the perfect thing for holiday parties coming up.

    The fur jacket wasn't exactly the right silhouette for this dress, but I don't care. I love it so much I want to give it as much mileage as I can.

  • christieanne replied 7 years ago

    Glad you had fun because you were rockin that dress. It has the coolest shape and lovely color. Night time events at aquariums are pretty neat (well I have been to two but they were both cool - the lights dimmed and reflections off the tanks were great).

  • catgirl replied 7 years ago

    This is YOUR LOOK.  I can't even believe how fantastically elegant and drop-dead beautiful this dress is on you!

  • Sona replied 7 years ago

    Whoa Hottie alert !!!!!!!!!!!

    * passes out*
    *looks up*
    *passes out again!*


  • replied 7 years ago

    I bet heads turned when you walked in. That dress was made for you.

  • HelenInCanada replied 7 years ago

    Looking good, Amy!  Very glamorous!  Hope you had fun.  Aquarium sounds like an amazing place for a party! :)

    I love it!

  • Jenava replied 7 years ago

    You look gorgeous!  Everything suits you so well.  I need a long pearl necklace...

  • Angie replied 7 years ago

    Killer to the power of Killer

    I have never seen you look more gorgeous, Amy. WOW. I'm blown away. 

  • Amy replied 7 years ago

    Wow! Such nice things to hear :)

  • replied 7 years ago

    Ditto all of the above - fantastic in every detail!

  • Jjsloane replied 7 years ago

    Such fun pictures and a beautiful outfit! You look great and I hope you have as much fun as you look like you are already!

  • Vix replied 7 years ago

    Hi Amy --

    If you can bear to hear another compliment: What a beautiful color and silhouette on you! You're glowing.

    Glad you had fun. Here's to the next event you both get to swish off to!

  • TraceyLiz65 replied 7 years ago

    Absolutely stunning!

  • Shirley replied 7 years ago

    Perfection. I actually like the nude pumps. Very classic.

  • shevia replied 7 years ago


  • Asingh replied 7 years ago

    Amy, you look gorgeous!

  • Sharon replied 7 years ago

    Gosh, I nearly missed this. So glad I didn't, because you looked absolutely stunning.

    That dress could have been made for you - the colour is lovely with your hair and skin, the shape shows off your lovely figure and it looks like you felt great wearing it! I think the shoes were a perfect choice to ensure the dress remained the focus.

    So glad you had a nice time. Tell hubby you have a taste for cocktail parties now, and he needs to take you to a few more :)

  • lyn67 replied 7 years ago

    How gorg you look, Amy! Hope you had fun!

  • Suz replied 7 years ago

    WOW! Sensational look, Amy! I hope you felt fabulous because you looked absolutely spectacular. What a winning outfit!! 

  • Alassë replied 7 years ago

    SO wonderful! The color looks great on you, you look glowing & youthful, great silhouette & pearls.... So glad you posted for us to enjoy! You look amazing.

  • Keturah replied 7 years ago

    Oh my goodness!! Late to this post and all I can think is Holy pink pagoda! Do you ever look swank and gorgeous! I agree: Mad Men in the most beautiful and complimentary way. You must have knocked them dead. And I am completely in love with your pearls and jacket.

  • Amy replied 7 years ago

    Thank you everyone!

  • Vickie KY replied 7 years ago

    Ditto on what everyone else has said. Great ensemble. Love the fur.

  • bj1111 replied 7 years ago

    Retro bombshell...but the ropes of pearls are a bit distracting. How do you feel about wrapping them in a pile closer to your neck?

  • No Fear of Fashion replied 7 years ago

    So pretty. I agree with bj1111, it reminds me of Mad Men. So nice. You look fabulous.
