Dressing the part

These invitations are hot off the pink dot press - and they KILL me! There is something about this juxtaposition of classic and modern that makes such a lovely paring. I love the contrast of the classic one color semi-formal invitation set against the uber-modern super bold Greek Key envelope liner. I'm such a lady of bold bright flamboyant color - but this deep inky-navy-ness sends me over the moon! I think it satisfies the need to over indulge in a frenzy of BOLD that makes me love it so much. This bride and groom are too cute and were a delight to work with - and although I only know them on a client/designer basis, I'd like to think that if I were to attend this darling little soiree I'd dress the part. I'd douse myself in this delicious  navy Ruffled cotton-sateen frock from jcrew, and pair it with these 

Lyla peep toes heels. This ensemble screams classic-modern-chic, is just so undeniably lady like not to mention proper - you know in that Betty Draper kind of way. I'd like to think that showing up dolled up to match the invitation is the perfect way to dress the part!
