Emerald Inaugural {FF #15}

I'm not going to lie, I've had Inauguration on the brain all week. I'm so excited to get all dressed up, see friends and family, and pretend like we are a part of the Washington elite. What a glamourous life I lead (said with full sarcasm). So after Wednesday's post where I talked inaugural options, where SO many of you commented and just gushed about the emerald option (no longer available at Macy's BTW, ANNOYING), I've been re-evaluating my options. I want to incorporate emerald one way or another. But should I run out and get a new dress? or maybe invest in a few accessories? What to do. What to do. So these are all options I would love to consider adding to my look.

Emerald Inaugural


What do y'all think? Full on gown? or do I stick with accessories?

PS. How amazing would it be for Michelle to rock that Elie Saab Gown? I'm dying just thinking about it.  Have a great weekend loves!

Emerald green is one of my favorite colors. I think an emerald green gown would be stunning. Full on gown!

Mree said...

That gown is absolutely beautiful!!!! I would only get a new dress if you really need it and would wear it again. Otherwise, get some cute accessories!! Can't wait to see your dress!!

Shannon Rice said...

I am with the other readers...definitely an emerald gown, so so so gorgeous!

I do love the dangling earrings as well! Can't wait to see what you decided!

everything elie saab does is ridiculously amazing. SO jealous you get to run around to 3 different balls! have you considered rent the runway?

Sara said...

Maybe I am the only one scared of color, but I was going to say go with emerald accessories! Sorry to muddy the water! Maybe I should branch out and stop wearing so much black and white. It seems like everyone is loving all this green. (Note: I am currently wearing black, white and gray. How boring)

Jamie said...

Those gowns are gorgeous! Love the jewelry too!

Well that sequin dress is pretty much to die for, but I really like the earrings if you just want to add a little touch. Such pretty picks!

MICHELLE CURRY said...

BEAUTIFUL!! I think accessories are the way to go.

Allyssa said...

Emerald is such a gorgeous color that whatever option you chose you'd look amazing! However, if you went with emerald accessories, you could wear them throughout the year. I don't know if you'd get the same wearability out of a dress. Just my $0.02. Have a great weekend!

Holly said...

ohh so fancy! i've always thought emerald was such a classy and elegant color. those dresses prove it! :)

I love that sequin gown but I also kinda think those shoes with a black dress would look stunning!

Beautiful gowns. However, I would stick with accessories. You'll probably wear them throughout the year. :)

Betsy Transatlantically said...

YES to the Elie Saab! duh :)

Marlen said...

I say get a new dress!! There aren't that many opportunities to totally marinate in the feeling of being a girl and picking out a gorgeous new gown, so take those chances ;) and my god, emerald would look gorgeous on you. Especially that sequin dress- SO pretty!

Ashley said...

Those emerald stud and drop earrings are gorgeous!! You're going to have a blast!

That Elie Saab goes is everything! I wish I had a black tie event to go to so I could wear it!

I think you should accessorize a gorgeous dress you already own with some of these beautiful emerald accents, like the earrings and the clutch. I'm headed to DC on Thursday for my first inauguration and am so excited (I heard it's frigid, though)! Have so much fun!
