Wrapped in Silk Gold for My Wedding Anniversary.

Today's Dressed Up Look is from a month ago, back from June 19th 2015 when my husband and I celebrated our 10th Wedding Anniversary. We went for dinner to a local, semi-fancy Mexican Restaurant, very close to home. We left Vivi with my sister-in-law. I must say I loved what I am wearing. I shopped my closet where I found this gorgeous (ignored) Gold Babydoll Dress, the Leopard Clutch, and the Gold Watch.
This Dress, ahhh this dress. It is at least 6 or 7 years old. Back when Arden B. was a lot nicer and not teeny-booper like and when they had a large collection of special occasion and cocktail dresses, like mine. The material is 100% Silk Charmeuse. The Ivory part of the Dress is crushed velvet in burnt-out silk. I absolutey love the loose, halter, babydoll style. It has a very long sash that ties on the back, behind the neck, into a bow - which adds to the feminine appeal of the dress. I did some minor pattern-mixing with my Leopard Clutch and paired them both with my Lace+Silk, Bow Peep-Toe Heels. I added some Dainty Crystal Drop Earrings, a Few Bracelets and a Gold Watch. I also completely straightened out my hair. Did this Dress do justice to my 10th Anniversary Dinner or no?
Hand Jewelry:
Dainty Gold-tone Earrings w/ Cubic Crystal, 4-Colored Stones: Fred's Jewelry (similar by Givenchy, fantastic deal, love these), (gorgeous option by Swarovski, great deal), (similar by Bebe, best deal, love these).
A sneak peak into our dinner:
These were our (large) appetizers after two small plates we had first. We also shared a big Ceasar Salad, an Entree and a Dessert. And yes beer isn't very fancy but we both opted for beer that night. We did have chocolate+strawberry cake with champagne the next day at our own home. 
Dainty Gold-tone Earrings w/ Cubic Crystal, 4-Colored Stones: Fred's Jewelry (similar by Givenchy, fantastic deal, love these), (gorgeous option by Swarovski, great deal), (similar by Bebe, best deal, love these).

As well as:
Elle with Jacqueline for "Spotlight Weeekly" - Dressed Up.
