Friday Fancies::Wedding Guest Two Ways

Though it's the end of summer...this weekend is the first only wedding we're attending of the season!  I love going to weddings...it's really an opportunity to dress up and feel a little special!  Ironically, {av} chose a wedding theme this weekend for her Friday Fancies!

This is a special dress worth wearing during a special occasion...the Rachel Gilbert dress especially does the trick...I am obsessed!

It's easy to pick out accessories that are outrageous and expensive....I thought it would be fun to dress this dress up two ways...less & luxe...why not mix it up?!

Flat sandals are a great way to add sparkle, but keep a casual feel to the outfit.  Paired with the pearl earrings and sequins clutch...I love the overall feeling this gives to the dress.

On the flipside...I am loving the heeled sandals and Marchesa clutch...total glam.  Of course, I adore the geode inspired earrings...definitely one of my favorite trends right now!

How do you fancy it up for weddings?!
