Gilded and Gathered


This little number represents exactly how I want to dress my girl for Thanksgiving. My vision of perfect Thanksgiving attire is sweet and classic without being too much of an overstatement. You don't want to make your relatives feel underdressed, and at some point you are expected to stuff yourself.
The dress is made out of a golden silk that has been gently pleated on the bodice and sleeves for a very delicate and unique texture. The bubble skirt of the dress is a brushed poplin with a golden sheen- it was given some substantial pleats to give it a lot of "umph". The little bolero is a deep golden knit with felt leaves. 

The dress was all about texture and tones- the pleats on the golden silk were subtle but striking and the vibrant bolero just makes the whole ensemble pop. The colors really came together freely and the style is definitely more simple and chic with touches of whimsy. If you have a minute, check out project run and play and don't forget to vote!

So beautifully done. The shrug/vest is so lovely with the detailing. Simply classic. I could see Audrey Hepburn in this.
