Starting with the top,
& remember for this exercise in fantasy,
money is NO object...
I've finally chosen this hat
to go with the Valentino outfit
which I only just discovered today, Tuesday...
I mean, can you believe it...the wedding is Friday morning
I'm leaving tomorrow and TODAY I found the outfit!!
The hat seems perfect to me, not severe brimmed, but fluttery,
which this ensemble requires, I think.
I would prefer the hem to be longer, but this is the only photo I
could find. The actual outfit will be delivered to my hotel on Thursday,
with the longer hem.
I love the soft pinky-beige color, but thought it was way too
boring to be monochromatic, which is usually my style.
So the hat set the tone for the rest of the accessories.
I really am liking the sharpness of the dark gray/black with the
rose beige...to me it gives the outfit a lot of style & punch.

Love the flower-ruffle embellished toes too.

notice the silver, gold & black crystals,
exactly the same as on the heel of the shoe.
