Gallery Exhibition Opening Wear

Tuesday night was the opening of the Decatur Arts Festival Fine Arts Exhibition. I always love going to the opening every year because the show never disappoints (great, affordable, local works of art) and it provides the perfect excuse to get a little dressed up.

Our outfits in the photos below are what we deemed to be gallery-exhibition-opening appropriate. Some might find our style too dressy for a relatively laid-back event, but until we get invited to the annual Costume Institute Gala, we'll take advantage of every chance we get to dress up.

Lauren is wearing a J.Crew dress, H&M jewelry and Nine West heels (not shown).

I'm wearing a dress from H&M, Anne Klein watch and shoes by Vera Wang from Kohls.

You can purchase these shoes here.

Cute outfits as usual! I think that they are totally appropriate. But, I also like to wear a dress and sandals when I got to walmart...

Danz said...

Well I think you both look great. I'm also an accused overdresser but if I look and feel good in an outfit, I'm gonna wear it! The Vera Wang pumps are lovely :D

Stephanie, glad we're not alone in the dressing-up department!

Danz, very true. It's hard not to feel great in a dress.

The clothes horse, the best thing about the H&M dress is that it's stretchy and comfortable.

Wendy, make sure to post what you wear to the exhibition!

Thanks Aizat! I too was drawn to the timelessness of the dress.

Alya, it's so nice to know that we fashion bloggers are in the same boat!

Thanks Coco and Fashion Ivy!

June, have you been to the H&M in Northpoint? I'm still holding out for the opening at Atlantic Station.

June Shin said...

I don't even know where Northpoint is. I'm waiting for Atlantic Station too.
