We have really been sharing our LOVE of the details, the Lagniappe, that “little something extra” over the past week or so and today we continue that theme. Today’s embellished dress is Xtra special in that it is perfectly suited for day even though beautifully embellished and intricately detailed.

Etro fashioned this embellished dress with shades of burnished gold and black trim,  fringe and exquisitely detailed embroidery. What is masterful about the embellishing here is the thoughtful placement to create a gorgeous bib, define the waist and accentuate the shoulders and flounced skirt. The burnished gold is stunning against the beautiful light wool crepe of the black dress.  No tiny, shiny mirrors or heavy beading here to relegate this dress to nighttime; this is luxe you can take to lunch!

The amazing clutch, also by Etro, does double duty as a tote: one side in an iconic Etro paisley damask and the other in rich patchwork python, of course with beautiful leather trim and handles (which conveniently tuck inside when you want to carry it as a clutch).

We kept accessories simple, adding the gorgeous wood bead and gold stretch bracelet from Lissa Jewelry which we introduced in an earlier blog. The necklace is a gorgeous pearl and turquoise creation by Gypsy. Caramel suede heels by Manolo Blahnik complete this look.
