A 70th birthday

We were invited to an aunt's 70th birthday party.

Taylor gold brocade dress - Christian Siriano for Payless shoes - Maison Martin Margiela for H&M clutch
It was a huge event - I am guessing at least 200 people.


She also wore a gold gown.
After a while, I realized that the only ones wearing gold... 
were her and I.

I felt kind of bad, like when you attend a wedding and there is another person wearing a white gown. But, how was I supposed to know ?

You look amazing in that dress. tsk tsk is right taking the lime light from such an old woman :) I hope you had a good time - did you get a pic of you and the aunt together? If I would have been her, I would have been flattered with the signal that at my age I still had fabulous fashion sense :)

I bet the guest of honor thought it was pretty cool though! Really pretty dress, Lorena.

It looks modern and retro at the same time. You look beautiful.

Hahaha, I'm sure no one even noticed, and this dress looks so stunning on you, if you were stealing attention, it wasn't because the dress was the same color.

You look so pretty! I love the dress (and there is no way you could have known).

Don't feel bad, dear Lorena, it's totally ok. I would have felt quite the opposite. Delighted to know that guest of honour and I both, unbeknownst to one another, had been drawn toward wearing similar outfits for such a special day.

You look stunning, such a lovely dress!

I'm sure your aunt did not mind at all that you both wore gold :)
