To continue with the recent Friday’s Fancies wedding season posts, I thought I would style a look for a wedding we’ll be attending in Rhode Island. I visited Rhode Island a few years ago when my family took a trip to Boston. We had lunch in Providence and toured some of the mansions in Newport. And these aren’t just McMansions. They’re glorious remnants of the Gilded Age. Think of them as an American Versailles. Several mansions were owned by the Vanderbilts and one, Rosecliff, was used in the filming of movies like The Great Gatsby and 27 Dresses.
The wedding or reception won’t be at a mansion, but I couldn’t resist an outfit inspired by Newport and the Golden Era.

And of course I’ll need some red lipstick. Maybe I’ll toss some in this Kate Spade The Great Gatsby book clutch. It’s one of my favorite books and I even wrote a paper about it in high school. I think it had to do with the themes of wealth and money. Too bad the clutch is “out of print.” Instead, I picked out Kate Spade’s I Married Adventure clutch. Pretty appropriate for a destination (for us) wedding.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Do you have anything fun planned?
