I wore this out to dinner with my cousin to one of those farm-to-table restaurants. I had the best foie gras ever (including France) and my Bloody Mary-ish martini was so good. This dress was probably a poor choice for dinner– it’s not forgiving through the waist and I thought I was going to have to roll out of the restaurant after dinner. I used my turtle pin to hold the sash in place because it looks better with only one knot, although it always comes undone then.
My favorite way to carry a clutch is with the chain still attached. I just drape it over the top and carry as usual. I like the way the chain looks and I can still hang the bag on a chair at dinner instead of searching for place to put it or sticking it on the chair against my back.
