BLACK LACE & MY REFINED STYLE LINK-UP

Happy 1st Thursday in August beauties!! You know what that means! It's time for the monthly My Refined Style fashion Link-Up.
I think this dress had to be one of my favorite from the Nordstrom Sale. It is by Vince Camuto, made so incredibly well and I can see me getting some good out of this and it being a classic in my closet for several years. The A-Line Fit and Flare Dress is so flattering. And the lace detail even more exquisite in person.

Missed snipping out the hot pink tag, but isn't the back pretty!!
Last weekend my Husband and I had a weekend away with no kids to our favorite city of Chicago. I LOVE Italian food so Mr. Nine indulged me and we went to Carmine's for a fabulous dinner. I was so excited to wear my perfect new LBD for our night out.
Even Mr. Nine added his own Refined Style with his Vineyard Vines ensemble.
I am sad to say this dress is no longer available and went fast but Vince Camuto has several other great fit and flare dresses.

Simple Italian wedges with a small velvet flower accent....had these forever.
Off course leopard to any black dress is my favorite accessory!

That's My Refined Style, now it's time to link up yours!!!!

  4. Chicago is my favorite city too. I've spent many summers as a teen in a suburb right outside of the city. You look beautiful, I love the lace detail in the dress in the front and back of the dress. You and your hubby are a beautiful couple.

  13. Wow. This is the kind of dress I would fall for! I bought shoes and makeup from the sale, but this dress is a "head turner!" I am sure hubby thought so, right? You look gorgeous! Love the back lace as well the heels and I think we have the same clutch via Express. Last time I was in Chicago was many years for the Blue Festival. Enjoy!
    Fun to host with you as well!
