A couple of days ago I discussed pre-wedding attire. But what does a fashion blogger wear to attend the big day?! My first instinct for a summer wedding is to wear pink! It’s a happy color and there are so many pretty pink numbers out there. But when the bride is wearing blush, that’s a big no no. So, I chose another uplifting color, and dressed in a yellow gown. It turns out that I was not the only one who thought a sunny hue was a good idea…my cousin and fellow fashionista, “Teggy French,” was also in yellow.
This yellow gown will bring all of your Bollywood fantasies to life. I truly felt like an Indian princess the entire night. Covered from top to bottom in pearls and beads, no details were missed in the making of this piece. Featuring a high neck and high slit, this gown is as dramatic as it can get. I’m wearing the petite version but it is available in tall too. How convenient is that?! You can thank Maya Evening Wear and Asos for that.
With so much dazzling already going on, I accessorized with dainty emerald jewels (complimentary colors for added pop), and genuine Indian earrings. When you’re styling a piece with a thigh high slit, be considerate about the shoes. In a traditional floor length gown, your shoes will go unnoticed. But with a peek-a-boo dress like this, all eyes will be on the legs and the shoes! I went with Steve Madden’s “Slithur” sandals – I loved how the cutout shapes matched the square beading on the dress.
A special occasion calls for a special hairdo. Thanks to the lovely ladies of Beauty Entourage, our hotel room was transformed into a glam room in a matter of minutes! Cathy painted my face with a smoky eye and red lip, while Rachel whipped up a voluminous side twist. I was thrilled with my new look and was very impressed with their efficiency.
