Grammy Preparations

Some of you have been asking to see my clothes that I am getting together for going to the Grammy's. So here is the dress that I bought at My Sister's Closet for 17$. I can't do the whole bare shoulder, plunging front or back thing. This dress looks really flattering on and the skirt has a really nice flow to it. It kind of changes from silver/black/grey. There is an underskirt of black and then this lighter flowing fabric on top. I am very pleased with it.











The top is beaded some. It's a bit see through, I need to get a camisole still.













Shoes are hard for me. I don't do really well with much of a heel. And a lot of the fancier things are too narrow for me. I was at Last Chance yesterday and picked these up. They aren't ideal, but I think I can make them work. They are a little big in the heel but I think the ankle strap will make them stay on ok. They aren't as over the top fancy as some of them were, but I just couldn't find any that fit comfortable, that I thought I could walk in. At least I don't think I will have to be pulling these off immeadiately and hopefully I won't fall over. The heel is shiny silver metallic, kind of chrome looking. And they are Italian made. How cool is that? And I scored a major sale: 21$ including tax.



I haven't decided for sure, but I believe I will be wearing these earrings and the matching necklace. My sister, Wendy bought these for me last year at the indoor swap meet! What a hoot. They are fabulous really.
And the white beaded bag, I have had for many years and really like. The grey silk one I bought when I got the dress. I am leaning towards the white one.
Feel free to give you opinions. I don't promise to follow it, but I will certainly listen and consider it. I am still thinking of a possible wrap. I'm not sure yet, because anything that will really go with the dress and even would likely be rather light and gauzy. The top is pretty shear and we are talking February in LA at night. I am wanting something to help keep me warm. Any thoughts on that?

Forgot to say that the dress is spectacular! I absolutely love it! And those shoes....Oooooooh la la! CVS sells Dr Scholls inserts for heels $12.99- actually,I think I bought the store brand. You can get them for just the balls of your feet too for cheaper- That might be a better option for these shoes since they're slingback. I have used them before and they help immensely. However, you should try them on and make sure they don't rub against the top of your toes with the inserts in, I speak from experience when I say that hurts bad at the end of the day, I learned you can protect your toes with Bandaids if the shoes rub with the insoles in. Hope that helps! BTW you will devastate us all if you don't post pics of you on the big day!

I am impressed with your dress, shoes & jewelry choices! I love your bags, but you might need a dark one. As for a "wrap", I have seen some very pretty ones out of a very light wool, that would surely keep you warm! Can't wait to see you all dolled up! I sincerely hope the shoes work for you, they seem so pretty, best of luck with them!

In person I think the white bag looks good with the dress. You can tell it's vintage, and I don't think it has to be matchy matchy. I think you'll look great Suzanne.

Love the outfit you've chosen! How exciting! I really miss being so close to Last Chance and my sister's closet. I may have to make a trip back soon for shoes!
