A Cinderella Evening

5/48 by Saks dress, sterling silver evening bag my mom got me in Thailand (similar one here), Francesca's crystal hoop earrings, double strand pearl bracelet that my mother-in-law made for my wedding, Stuart Weitzman sandals
 I love the look of a strapless dress with no necklace and big earrings. I did the same thing for my wedding day. So I went in search of really dramatic drop earrings but everything I liked was too pricey and everything affordable looked too cheap so I stuck with these big crystal hoop earrings I already had.
I was excited to finally have an occasion to bust out this ornate handcrafted sterling silver evening bag (similar one here). My mom got it for me years ago when she traveled to Thailand and I've been waiting to use it. My only complaint would be how tiny it is! It contained my phone, id and lipgloss and that's about all it could hold!
It was such a fun evening and so lovely to finally meet all the coworkers (and their wives!) that hubbie's been talking about for months! Thanks to you guys for helping me choose the right length (90% of the wives were in floor length gowns), the right dress, and the right hair style! Where would I be without you??
