Vintage Keyhole Gown and Turban

 Last week I attended my first Charlotte Magazine BOB Awards event. It was held at the NC Music Factory, where most wonderful man in the world and I recently ventured for dinner and these photos. Admittedly, I did spend a little bit of time in debate over what to wear. I had it narrowed down to three choices and ultimately went with this.

The dress is one of my favorites. It is a vintage Lillie Rubin that belonged to my Mom. She got it in Greenville, South Carolina about 40 years ago to wear to a party.  She carried it along through her many moves over the years, because she thought it was so lovely.  I am so glad she did!

Once the turban occurred to me, my decision was made. This is a fun and funky way to dress down an otherwise formal dress. I threw the formality back in the ensemble by wearing my wedding shoes. Ironically enough, precious pea #1 exclaimed as he saw me dressed, "Mommy, is that your wedding dress?!" Pitter Patter Heart Beat.
