You may recall the pink dress I'll be wearing to my husband's brother's wife's sister's wedding:

Zara Dress

It has been pointed out to me, and none too gently, either, that the shoes and belt I had planned to go with it are an atrocity. "Don't ruin the pink dress with those awful shoes and that belt!" is one direct quote from a dear friend who shall remain nameless Meredith.

And I have to admit that she has a point. As soon as I posted those photos, I was like nooooooooooo! Those shoes are all wrong! And do I even need a belt? Won't it only accentuate the impression of a giant cloud of cotton candy tied in the middle with a string? WTF was I thinking? Especially when I already own these shoes:

Nine West Shoes

I sent a photo to Meredith, and this new ensemble was met with approval. But what about a bag? Yes, I have the soul of an 87 year old lady and need my shoes and bag to match. I know this rule has gone out the window along with no white pants before Memorial Day but I can't shake it.

So I went looking and promptly fell for this:

Yves Saint Laurent Clutch
But not having a spare $500 lying around, I didn't get too attached. Instead, I gracefully settled for this:

Coach Wristlet
Which is a mere $95 on Amazon and thus (barely) within my severely shortened grasp. And yes, that's a whole lotta pink going on. I'm not really sure how it's going to all work out, but as I said, I'll be sure and post photos. You know, as long as I look super cute.

Pin It!

I do not like the Coach wristlet. I think it looks cheap. There are cheaper things, that dont even look as cheap. I will search for said cheaper things.
