Last weekend my husband, Adam, and I enjoyed a rare baby-free evening out at the Wellesley Country Club for the Northeast Region Porsche Club of America Annual Gala. We caught up with friends over a lovely banquet dinner and danced the night away to the hot Boston band Clockwork. Some time between accepting a first place award in his division of Autocross racing and helping to administer the “pick-up and pay” responsibilities of the night’s silent auction, Adam was able to snap a few pictures with me to help document one of my favorite outfits I’ve worn in a long time.
The dress, a dense woolen mini from Matthew Williamson’s Fall 2013 collection, turned out to be a perfect choice for the January occasion. Not only did the “clean silhouette maximize the impact of the Floral Folk rose jacquard” (as the product information on MW’s site aptly describes), but it also coordinated beautifully with the elegantly appointed clubhouse. From there, I gave the look a youthful twist by pairing the dress with some McQ by Alexander McQueen snappy strappy sandals in navy and hot pink and Elizabeth Cole fish bone crystal earrings. This outfit had nearly as many bells and whistles as a new Porsche!
