Visible Monday #75: The Aunt of The Groom Wore . . .

Welcome to Visible Monday #75! If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the easy how-to.

Well, Aunt of the Groom isn’t a very prestigious title, but we had a wonderful time at Daniel and Gina’s wedding. The bride and groom were gorgeous, naturally, and the food and wine flowed. There were sweet dances between the bride and her dad, and the groom and his mom, then crazy dancing by all. We don’t care that line dancing is passe!

You all helped me accessorize this Calvin Klein sheath. I chose the vintage rhinestone earrings (although my hair hides them) and a couple of simple bangle bracelets. My Wendy B “G” ring is a go for all occasions. I had the toughest time choosing shoes, and in the end decided on simple black low-heeled pumps by Franco Sarto.

Because the wedding was outdoors and the temps threatened to plummet to as low as 65 degrees (the horror!), I added a teal Calvin Klein scarf for color and warmth. It hit the floor when the dancing began. Thanks for all your help in putting this look together! I will most definitely be wearing this dress again, with casual accessories like tights, boots and cardigans.

The G-ring goes everywhere. This time, for “Gala.”
Oh yes, I wore hose. It’s been a long time!
A most appropriate, and enjoyable, afternoon wedding look, imho  : >

  10. I think you should re-title this The Groom's Hot Aunt Patti 🙂 Wow, you look so lovely and perfect. I call that kind of dress a "forever dress" because it's always in style and perfect for so many occasions. The "G" is also for goddess. I also love it when Ross Dress for Less gets a new stock of reasonably priced Calvin Klein sheath dresses from last season, because who can tell?
