Formalizing Things

For our charity summer formal, I literally took a page from my fashion icon, The Duchess of Cambridge. I found these Jimmy Choo's on eBay about two weeks before the event and I was a tad skeptical because they were new in box for a ridiculous price. However, after emailing the seller, she told me that she had bought them for her wedding and all the reviews and everyone told her to size up because of the narrow vamp, but when she received them, they were too big and she should have ordered her regular size. She had bought them on final sale and couldn't return them, but was selling them for what they cost her. I quickly snatched them up and was happily surprised when she included the original receipt. I then recycled a dress I had previously worn to our friends' wedding and just wore all new accessories.
Dress: BCBG MaxAzria (option); Necklace: Gioielli by Nikki Baker (option); Earrings: Plata (similar)
Bracelets: Fossil and c/o Julie Vos (option); Mason Ring: BaubleBar; Clutch: Anya Hindmarch (option)
I found this clutch at The RealReal, which quickly became an out of control obsession for me over the summer. I thought it would be a little more gold, but it photographs a bit bronze.  I do love that Anya Hindmarch and I share the same initials because there is a cute bow engraved on the clasp with her (and now my!) initials.
Shoes: Jimmy Choo Vamp via eBay (current wedge style)
We had such a great time. I think it was highlighted by the fact that we don't get to see everyone as often as we'd like now that we are so far away. I was also pleasantly surprised that my shoes were so comfortable and I was able to wear them all night. It was unbelievably (or maybe not so much) humid and I forgot to take most photos until after my hair had curled back into itself.
