My nephew is getting married outdoors in August in Upper Lake, CA. I'm picturing palazzo pants and a top made of a very sheer fabric in which I can feel cool, altho as covered up as possible! Any suggestions?
Thanks!

I could picture this outfit : palazzo pants in 4 ply silk crepe with
matching silk chiffon top over silk georgette tank. You can
purchase these in same color at Rosen and Chadick in NYC
and I'm sure at stores in California as well. I know that
R and C will send you swatches. Ellen and David are owners
and you can speak with Ellen directly--very nice.

Mood has a wonderful selection of colors in 4 ply silk and matching colors and dye lots in silk chiffon, silk crepe de chine and other silk weaves. Banksville Designer fabrics is another good place.
A tank top in a contrasting color would also be nice in silk jersey or crepe de chine. The overblouse or sheer jacket could be in a print or be iridescent. Depending on the pattern you choose you could also use a silk organza for the outer piece.

I am so jealous that you are close to Mood. I would love to shop there.
