The thing about dressing up for me is...I don't have a lot of fancy dresses nor heels. So to make do with what I had, I came up with a simple look that focused on quality separates.
|Dress: Charlie Jade | Heels: Prada | Handbag: Unknown | Necklace: Tiffany & Co. | Tights: Unknown|
If you'll recall, this dress is one I bought from Holt Renfrew for $9 (thanks to a gift card), and as for the shoes, I have been dying to find an opportunity to bring out these heels. For once in my life, I didn't feel short - I felt average height, if not even tall. I had a great time walking around in these booties, even though, no, they were not painless. They didn't scratch or rub at all, but height like that doesn't come without sacrifice (no pain no gain, ladies). The dress was understated, but I felt the artful mixing of colours and slippery silk material were details that elevated it slightly.
As a final note, this particular wedding I went to was one I will remember. The bride and groom were clearly in love, and not because they were overt, but because they were so subtle. The tender, silent communication they shared through the simple locking of eyes was palpable. A romantic, I am.
