This is what I wore to my cousin’s wedding over Memorial Day weekend. I spent a lot of time trying to find something more spring-y/floral/frothy/floaty, but was ultimately unsuccessful. I even bought a custom-made mauve tutu that I was hoping to wear over a black dress, but it ended up being so poofy that there was no way I could wear it without knocking over everything around me. (It’s still awesome, though–I will definitely wear it sometime when I go to an event with more space to move around.) So I went with this, which was my backup dress, and it ended up working out really well.
Dress: Macy’s, shoes: Clarks, clutch: eBay, rose bangle: H&M, rhinestone wristband: So Good, silver rose ring: ancient, pink rose statement ring: The Tiny Teapot, necklace, earrings, and hair bow: Forever 21
I got this dress a few years ago and weirdly, it’s a size 14. I’m not sure why I even tried it on, but I’m glad I did.
One of the best things about this dress is its twirliness!
Both the pink ring and one of the earrings are missing a rhinestone, but luckily it wasn’t too obvious. I get so annoyed with how often rhinestones fall out of my jewelry and disappear; if I could have two magic powers, one of them would be teleportation, and the other would be the ability to replace rhinestones with a snap of my fingers.
Me and Steve being all fancy-pants together….
And goofing off, because no fancy event is complete without a round of “crab ate your nose.” 😉
