So the day of the wedding we had been invited to arrived, it was April 16th.
I had been going back and forth about what to wear and then what to accessorize the dress that I had altered ...
Finally, I made up my mind.
I have to say I really appreciate all the comments I received from all of you, giving me useful suggestions on what to accessorize it with and why.
- Black lace MNG Dress
- Black glitter clutch Payless
- Black heeled sandals
- White gold, pearl and diamond earrings (borrowed from Grandma)
- Chunky rhinestone and silver tone bracelets Forever 21 or was it Charlotte Russe ?
Even though Ana, Jane and Kristen cheered for the pearls - as I did at the beginning I went with simple.
You may ask why, the reason is I felt red carpet like not wedding like.
On the other hand Hillary, EvaNadine, Clau and Erica directed me towards not wearing a necklace as it was a way to show off the pretty neckline...
Hillary suggested I find a wider belt, which in this case I did...
EvaNadine commented on a statement bracelet and I chose a chunky few...to make a statement !
Even though Hillary thought I should go with big earrings, not only did I not find a formal pair but I could not pass the opportunity to wear Grandma's white gold, pearl and diamond earrings.... total vintage luxury.
Here's a close up a the silver tone brooch with the 2 ribbons used as a belt and the chunky bracelets...
Oh ! and my black glitter clutch....
So, what do you think ?
Did you like the outcome ?
What would YOU have done differently ?
