Embassy reception look

Karen Millen formal dress
When we were invited to the Russian embassy reception to celebrate Russia's independence day I thought about wearing this dress straight away. My daughter brought it to me in February and I hadn't had a chance to wear it yet. It's elegant and beautiful, made from satin and decorated with embroidery. But the main thing in such type of dresses is a fit because if it's wrong it will not look good. And what can I say? This dress fits me perfectly, as if it was made for me.

I accessorized the dress with a sparkling necklace and an evening bag decorated with glass beads embroidery. At first I thought about covering my shoulders with a shawl but left it at home after all, it was too hot for any shawl no matter how light and beautiful.
