Okay, okay, I know. How hot can you possibly look at 55, right? Still, I am beside myself with excitement today! After months of searching I have finally found THE PERFECT outfit to wear to our friend's son's wedding this month.
You know how exquisite you feel when you find *that* outfit? It just gives you such a feeling of superb gorgeousness, right down to your lingerie. To me, this is one of the best feelings on earth.

This gorgeous cocktail suit is fully lined and is made of a silk & linen blend. And the pearls! I love the pearls and they aren't even Silpada. So, this what I found:
