I really think this looks like a mother of the bride outfit...am I right? I'm also very pleased with the way the hat and the lighting worked together in this session ~ I got the perfect "shadow" across the eyes.
The elegant suit is by Lady Blair and was found in a thrift shop in September 2012; the shoes are Predictions bone alligator pumps from Payless in April 2008. Other accessories are the hat (obviously), scarf, pearls, and natural hose.
I think this is a near-perfect portrait:
More pics on Flickr; a very different look later today.
