Bar Mitzvah

I only enter churches for weddings and I’ve never even been in a synagogue. The night before the bar mitvah, I placed a frantic call to one of the young man’s female relatives for advice on what to wear. Her guidance led me to wear this:


Dress, Isaac Mizrahi for Target. Cardigan, To the Max. Boots, White Mountain. Tights, Target. Watch, Raymond Weil. Earrings, vintage (from swap.)

I was relieved to get to the service and see that I was suitably dressed. Next challenge: finding an appropriate moment during the three hour program to sneak out to the bathroom! I don’t advise drinking two large cups of coffee before such an event.

There is something I just love about this! Maybe its the shade of gray- I'm really getting into gray recently!

Kelly said...

I love this outfit!

I love this outfit, great for a wedding too. That dress just makes me miss Isaac Mizrahi for Target. :(

Sheila said...

This is so pretty on you! That shade of grey washes me right out.

I hate long services of any type (I've been to a few funeral/memorials lately), for that very reason!

Julia said...

I love that white-grey--very wintery, and it looks perfect with the boots you've paired it with!

I LOVE this outfit! I need to copy it somehow.

I love the grey cardigan!

I always have to ask about what to wear to that sort of event too, otherwise I show up over dressed and too slutty.

Oh, I really, really love this outfit! Nice choice.

This outfit is one of my favorites! The color is great on you, the proportions are great, I love the "slouchy-chic" use of the boots, and how you formalized it with the gold jewelery. Lovely!

I really like this. I've been into all shades of gray lately. Whatever happened to Isaac Mizrahi for Target anyway?

This is just gorgeous! I love the watch and earrings, too! I can totally sympathize about bar/t mitzvahs being sooooooo long.

Heidi - Isaac Mizrahi left target to go design for the Liz Claiborne brand. You can see his influence in their latest offereings and ads. He is one of my favorite designers.

I have that dress, too -- great idea, wearing the belt over a cardigan! I have been looking for ways to dress it down a smidge.
