Dear Readers,

This past weekend’s fundraiser dinner required cocktail attire and for once, I didn’t deliberate much over the night’s outfit. This burnished gold t-shirt dress from Madewell checked all the boxes: pockets, plenty of room to eat (and dance), and ridiculously pretty. Done.

I channeled my inner rock star and added feminine accessories with a slight edge. Spiked and studded cuffs in silver and gold bring out the multi-dimensional metallic of the dress, while black accents balance the flashier pieces.

With a slight chill in the air, the (dreaded) tights came back out to play, but a sleek tuxedo jacket made for a chic cover. Rock on.

  • Love love love this outfit {I remember when you bought it!}. Looking gorgeous as usual 🙂 xx

    • Thank you so much, lady! It was the perfect combination of glamour and ease–I was so comfortable all night and could eat as much as I wanted without having to suck it in later. 😉 Not to mention, it looks pretty darn spiffy taking twirls out on the dance floor.
