Q: What should I wear to a Masquerade wedding in Italy? A: Can I be your plus one?

Yes, I'm for real. Better said, my friend whose attending a black-tie-mask-required wedding in Venice tomorrow night is for real. And I, for one, am geloso (that's Italian for jealous, although it also sounds like what my boday feels like after one too many skipped Soul Cycle classes).

I always get asked about dresses to wear to formal weddings, and the jewel-toned numbers in today's post are a few of my favs because they all would work in your favor on the dance floor (strict criteria I adhere to in selecting my wedding-attendee wardrobe). In this covetable case, the masks are the appropriate accessory and I'd probs not recommend them for a stateside affair - although who am I to keep you from living out your inner phantom-of-the-opera fantasies if you so desire?
