What NYC Recessionista Wears: NY and Company Eva Mendes Collection

Last night, my husband and I attended the beautiful wedding of one of my closest friends at work, and I was lucky enough to be dressed by New York & Company for the occasion!

Eva Mendes Collection earrings and 'Riviera' dress c/o New York & Company / LOFT coral cuff (similar) / Stella and Dot rose gold pave spear ring / MovadoBold luxe chronograph gold watch c/o Movado / Target clutch (similar) / Seychelles wedges (similar)

The dresses from this collection make you feel so beautiful and feminine ... at first I wasn't sure if I liked the gray or the black style of this dress, but I am glad I went with the gray. I love the way the rose print pops against it!
