The Wedding Guest

Yup, I’ve reached that age. That age where friends begin to get married. That age where engagement and bachelorette parties are more frequent than birthdays. And when the wedding season begins, a girl’s got to be prepared. This past weekend one of my closest friends got hitched. This means a big, big party, taking the form of a roman bacchanal (lots of eating and lots of drinking involved till the break of dawn). For us mexican girls, a wedding is not just an event to dress up, we actually like to play red carpet (not literally, but we do wear our best oscar-worthy evening gowns). Boys look cute in their tuxes, girls look picture perfect. So what did I wear for this weekend’s wedding, here it is…

I went for a dramatic chiffon gown in teal. This dress was custom made for me, it has a fitted, woven bodice with a plunging neckline. It has built in support so you can actually go braless and rock a perfect cleavage. The dress opens up from the hips down in pleats. It has a lot of movement and also it has a very discreet leg opening so you can show off your pins when walking or dancing. I have to say it’s a great color to wear when you are sporting a killer tan. The clash of teal with a bronzed skin is a perfect combination. I paired it up with a pair of wrapped sandals in nude. They are sky-high but with the plaform you can last all night dancing and twirling without feeling slightest hint of pain or discomfort.

For accessories, since the dress has a little greek godess vibe to it, I decided to wear it with a clamp bangle and a multirow bracelet, both in gold. Small pearl studs with a hint of gold. And since I had my nails done in a very pretty shade of pink, I decided to have fun and match them to my clutch.

For beauty, I had my hair down, with soft, almost natural waves, very dark eyes and soft lips (you never want to go over the top).

We had a real blast! And by looking at these pictures, I think it shows.

Sweet kisses…

  1. The dress looks gorgeous. Pity there weren’t better shots of you in it. The sketch looks good but the photos of you don’t really show off the dress. Nice accessorizing too !
