Oh, that wasn’t nice, was it? Okay, this is what I wore:
Coat and dress, vintage. Tights, Merona. Shoes, Isaac Mizrahi for Target. Bag, Naturalizer (thrifted and vintage). Velvet gloves, TJ Maxx. Earrings, Claire’s.
Yes, I went to a wedding and I wore my coat the whole time. It was held in an outdoor tent. There were heaters, but they didn’t make it warm enough to go coatless. This was one of those times I was extra glad I had a warm, dressy coat. I got this one for $15 at a vintage store. (If you really want to see my dress, it’s the same one I wore to a wedding last September.)
The most exciting part of the evening was meeting my twin! Every one has a twin, lurking somewhere in place and time, and I was lucky enough to meet mine. At first, I called her “my evil twin,” but “my hipper twin” is more accurate. (Yes, she is so cool that she is wearing fingerless gloves.)
Keep in mind that I met this girl mere seconds before the pictures were taken. Not only did she jump at the chance to pose with me, but she was instantly relaxed and goofy.
I apologize for the poor quality of the last two photos. They were taken with flash, but on the incandescent white balance, so I had to do some “rescuing” in photoshop.
Not only do we look alike and have similar hairstyles, but her name is April! That’s my middle name. She told me that her middle name is Kasmira, but I think that was a joke.
October weddings are a little dicey because of the chance that the weather can turn nasty, but the timing offers a nice opportunity to incorporate fall elements, like pumpkins and autumn leaves.
It was a cool wedding, but lovely and a lot of fun. I really didn't mind wearing my fabulous faux fur all night.
