We attended the most beautiful wedding this past weekend for some dear friends. It was held at a country club in North Scottsdale and the scenery was spectacular. Every detail was perfect and I couldn’t be happier for the couple.
Finding a dress for this event was a chore. No joke! I ordered 12 dresses from multiple stores and nothing fit right, color was bad, looked weird and lots of other reasons. I finally just went to the mall and tried on every dress that I saw. This dress was the winner.
It fit all my criteria for a good dress-
•fit-comfortable and easy to sit and dance in. I don’t want anything that is going to ride up and expose my bits! I also like a little stretch. I’ll be honest, I love a good wedding cake and I need some space for my overeating.
•color- color is so important. I want something that will stand out but not be crazy looking. This wedding was black tie optional so this color in the lace fabric looked a little fancy but still romantic and ladylike. I also knew a lot of girls would wear black and this color would pop in the black dress sea. I was right in my prediction btw.
•can I wear it again?-I try to buy things that I will get a lot of wear out of. This dress could be a great date night dress, other events, Valentine’s Day, or even Christmas. The color and silhouette are very versatile.
I kept all the accessories pretty neutral in nude and gold with the exception of my clutch. This was a gift and it is just so cute and has great colors. I love that it is a conversation piece. I got a lot of questions about it because it is so unique. Charlotte Olympia makes the cutest accessories. So whimsical and totally different than anything I have. This clutch would look great with a maxi dress and wedges for summer. I can’t wait to use it again.
