My Style Challenge: Posh Ladylike

It's funny, while I love feminine details, I'm very rarely ladylike. My ruffles tend to veer towards deconstructed, and looking put together feels a little "ladies who lunch" to me. But I had this beautiful dress by Christian Francis Roth that was tailored and classic looking, yet color-wise had a bit of edge. I believe my fiancé's exact words were, "That dress is screaming at me from behind a veil." And I knew it would be a perfect start to a look that would exemplify fall's trend of ladylike grace!I paired the dress with a cardigan with pearl buttons, ohmygosh I can't believe I even own that! It reminds me a little of Eloise at the Plaza ;) A belt on top, because a lady always shows off her figure, and then some close to kitten heels. They're probably two inches, which isn't tall but I maintain a kitten heel musy be less than that! I couldn't resist my wacky sunglasses though, at least they're oversized!

Don't you love how Kyoko is photo bombing my picture? She kept running in circles around me while I twirled, ahah.
