Chic Looks for Real Fêtes

When you receive an invite in the mail for an event, what’s the first thing you think of? If you are anything like me, you are thinking of what to wear!

While we often look to fashion blogs, celebrities and catalogues for inspiration, there are others outside of the spotlight who get it right every time.

We decided to put a monthly spotlight on individuals who put the Chic in every Fête.  Hopefully they can serve as inspiration for others looking for something to wear to a similar event.

Enjoy!

This month’s spotlight is on Noelle N. She wore this stunning Sherri Hill gown to a black tie wedding recently.  Even though you are a guest, there is no reason slack on your A game when attending someone else’s wedding.

To find this dress and other stunning gowns from this designer, check out www.sherrihill.com
