One of my best friends & bridesmaids, Caitlin, got engaged a few months ago, and this past weekend we celebrated their happiness at their engagement party. Cait is a lover of all things shiny/blinged out/sequiny, which part of the reason I think we get along so well together (but who doesn't love shiny things?!). She is always completely decked out to the nines no matter the occasion and I hail to her for that -- she's like a walking Jcrew/Kate Spade ad and I love it!
If this gives you any indication of who she is, this is it to a T.
Naturally I felt compelled to dress up for the occasion on Sunday for their engagement party but gave a little edge with these SUPERRRRR AFFORDABLE Valentino-inspired heels (K. Pais -- I owe it all to you). I featured the dress I wore on an earlier post for wedding season, which is also just as affordable. The dress would even look great with a jean jacket and Converses or ankle booties coming into the fall :)
Enjoy & have a great rest of the week! Can't believe it's August already, EEK.
(Pssst, shop this look in the links under the shots! Happy shoping :) )
