The Gilded Age

Anna Sui gilded dress, slip & belt. Vintage costume bow earrings. Vintage costume gold necklace. Vintage costume woven cuff. Vintage amethyst & bow rings. Knit crochet tights. Loeffler Randall "Matilde' boots.
Happy Hanukah! Tonight I'm attending a lecture by architectural historian Barry Lewis at the Met on "Shopping in the Gilded Age"; as an avid shopper/nostalgist, I'm excited to learn more about my 19th Century counterparts. This is the debut of my shimmery shirtdress (look #21 from Anna Sui's fall 2009 RTW fashion show); usually collared dreses are synonymous with conservative office attire, but this one is printed in an orange floral/paisley pattern set against a dark lurex background. I let the dress shine with black boots & minimal jewelry; however, it would also match perfectly with a certain pair of Roger Vivier heart flats (hint, hint)...
