High School Reunion

July 28, 2014
What should you wear to your high school reunion?

Anything you want!

It was an anything goes fashion evening at my 30 year high school reunion this weekend.  And that’s the way it should be … everyone wearing what makes them happy! 
Of course I wanted to dress up a bit. 
(Imagine that!)

Here’s my outfit ….

Skirt – White House/Black Market
Top- Calvin Klein
Shoes – BCBG
Clutch – thrifted

I got a couple of Audrey Hepburn comparisons and what fashionista doesn’t want to hear that?!

This is going to sound so “fashion nerdy” but I really loved the contrast of all the different textures.  There was the wavy top, the woven skirt, the snakeskin bag, and then the shiny patent leather shoes.  I think it all worked together so well since I kept the color palette simple.

Off we went to the reunion.  My handsome husband was such a good sport to go with me.

And here’s the bevy of beauties who greeted me there!  So fun to see so many faces from the past.  And what a great looking group!

(Sorry for the quality of the photos and sorry if I missed anyone!)

So fashion dolls, have you been to any reunions lately? What did you wear?

    Fabulous look. Hope it went well. I haven’t had any school reunions yet. I have been out of school for 7 years now. Would be quite a big event if we did have one, I think I’d push myself to go even though I’d be pretty nervous.

      I think everyone is a bit nervous! Walking in I was thinking, gee, what if no one remembers me and no one talks to me?!!

      Thanks so much, Marta! You're a sweetie.

    You look wonderful! You're brave to go to a high school reunion. I went to one, a 10-year reunion, and decided that was enough for me. XO, Jill

      I totally get that, Jill. I'm a natural introvert and it's definitely out of my comfort zone!

    A very Classy look for the occassion! Textures are an important element in style and I can so appreciate your enthusiasm for adding them in when your color palette consists of neutrals.

    You look perfect for the occasion. I'm also the class of 84. My 30 year reunion is in October, but I have no plans to attend.

    I think this might be my favorite look on you of all time! I bet you wowed everyone at the reunion. I have never been to my high school reunions but I think I will go to the 30th next year (if we have one).
    Looks like you had a great time!

    The first thing I thought of when I saw these was how much you remind me of Lauren Bacall. You have that classic femme fatale vibe in this outfit. I'll bet you knocked 'em dead at the reunion!
    I live too far away for reunions (and they couldn't handle me then so I very much doubt they could now LOL).


    • Reply dawnlucy July 29, 2014 at 1:34 am

      Oooo, Lauren Bacall … she's the coolest! Thanks, Alicia!

  • Reply fashionableover50 July 29, 2014 at 4:44 am

    Reunions a great fun!! I am planning a post about my school reunion.

    You are a knockout!! I love black and white with red shoes (did you notice I was in black and white with RED shoes in my post today?). Love the textures you mentioned, a totally gorgeous look!

    Have a fashionable week!

    This is a real classy look especially with the splash of red! I've never been to a reunion, what fun! Good to see your husband too!

    I've never been to a school reunion, dearest Dawn, although I would have loved to go…primarily because I don't think anyone would have recognized me!! (Let's just say that I was a late bloomer!!) You looked absolutely gorgeous for your "blast from the past"…a knockout from your flirty bob all the way down to those killer red pumps!! I'll bet your hubby was more than happy to be your escort for the evening; I'm sure he was secretly on bodyguard duty, too!! ;D

      You're so cute! Thanks, sweet Monika!

    Unfortunately, when my class reunites, I am usually two countries away. So no I haven't been to any reunions.

    That said, your outfit looks great and I agree, the different textures work very well together and give this otherwise "simple" look something unexpected and interesting.

    Boy I need some colored shoes …

    So glad you took an anything goes approach instead of stressing over it like I would have done. The end result is stunning. I love black and white, and the red heels are the perfect finishing touch. Looks like fun!

    Now I know why I kept coming back to this outfit. It has a lot to do your shining red shoes. I recalled in the past I was attempted but wondered they would not look right. But now, I am so convinced.

    You are so right about the textures and black and white cool with the RED shoes … but you make the outfit. It's your lithe figure and pretty face that brings those lovely comparisons, you know.
    Glad to see you had a fabulous time!

    Not "fashion nerdy" at all! The textures are great and the red pumps are the perfect shoe for the outfit. My 30th was last year, but I didn't go. Sometimes I'm so anti-social…ha!

    • Reply dawnlucy August 4, 2014 at 2:09 am

      I'm anti-social sometimes too, Hon. I totally get that. The reunion was so close to home that I just had to at least go for a bit!

    You look hot! And that is definitely how I would want to look for a high school reunion. Those shoes are so killer! And that outfit is so pretty. Your husband and you look so good together.
