Growing up in a predominantly Catholic area, Eliza missed out on the right of passage that is attending one's bar or bat mitzvah. She heard all of the lore involving elaborately themed celebrations at gigantic event venues that put Sweet Sixteen (the MTV "reality" show) to shame. Celebrity deejays. Personalized party favors. Even back in the day, Eliza wished that she lived in a more diverse area, but that's a different tale for a different day. It wasn't until her thirties that Eliza was invited to her first b'nai mitzvah, thanks to her friend/co-worker, Sara, whose twin boys were turning thirteen. Upon receiving the formal invitation, the inqusitive gal began flooding Sara's inbox with twenty questions, in part to make sure that she was being respectful, but also because she wanted to fully immerse herself in the experience. "Do we all sport yamakas"? "Will the luncheon after the ceremony feature traditional Hebrew dishes"? And, of course, "What should I wear"?
The dreamy Victoria Royal Ltd lilac grey gown features:
✶Delicate, metallic silver and clear vertical beading accompanied with rhinestones throughout on striped chiffon
✶Heavily beaded trimming along neckline and sleeve hems
✶Boat neck with adorable centerfront peekaboo keyhole and drapey, bishop sleeve. Snaps at sleeve hem
✶Centerback zipper with hook and eye closure at neck. Snaps at centerback lower skirt shell
After taking a yiddish lingo quiz on Buzzfeed and miraculously scoring 100%, Eliza feels fully prepared in attending her first Hebrew celebration. Styling her hair in a sleek 60s' inspired updo that shows off silver chandelier earrings, our partygoer completes the look with an oversized cocktail ring and nude pumps. Hoping that she's not looking too much like a shiksa, Eliza is ready to go. Cue Black Eyed Peas 'Let's Get It Started'. Mazel tov!
