Flamingos + Emeralds

On Saturday night we were honored to attend an intimate engagement dinner for our friends, hosted by family friends of the bride’s parents. The location was an elegant highrise on the Wilshire Corridor so I wanted to wear something appropriate but with a little kick.

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I don’t normally gravitate towards fitted frocks, but the emerald green hue of this dress had me at hello.

While a  nude or metallic heel would have been lovely, I wanted something a smidge more playful. Luckily, these Valley-of-the-Dolls-pink wedges had just arrived on my doorstep.

Pink and green always feel like a classic combo. It simultaneously reminds me of the Beverly Hills Hotel in the ’50s — or so I imagine — and of East Coast country clubs in the ’80s, which was fitting for the affair, as it was very martinis in the parlor (think Gilmore Girls at Emily and Richard’s, my dream come true!). We had such a lovely night and can’t wait for the wedding. The only question: What to wear?
