On Tuesday I have the wonderful opportunity to go to a lunch hosted by Gaynor Linden, one of the world's leading pointe shoe manufacturer. I am excited to get to know the company better and meet other local artists and teachers. I am especially excited to eat this lunch at the amazing Il Fornaio. Il Fornaio is an upscale Italian restaurant in Sacramento (with many locations elsewhere) who's waitstaff wear long white aprons and know how to properly pull out your chair.

Here's my question:
What do you wear to a business lunch at an upscale restaurant? I don't want to dress too formal or stiff but I also don't want to be too casual. So what do I wear: Professional or fun?
Modcloth CFO Dress
Modcloth Ode to Joy Dress
(I'd wear something underneath, of course.)
Ideally I'd have this in my closet...
$158.00 worth of perfection
I swear Anthropologie has an answer for everything.
But since I don't have this wonderful gem,
what side should I lean toward?
Professional or fun?
Have you ever gone to an upscale business lunch?
How about a day wedding?
(Those freak me out also)
How did you dress? Any tips on accessorizing?
(Can you tell I'm mildly freaking out?)
