Gracious Grecian Bride

25 Apr

I have a few friends who would swear by the unconventional wedding dress. You won’t catch them dead wearing a ball gown on their wedding day. Absolutely no  hope for the fussy stuff.

These days, I’m getting more attracted to the understatedly elegant, simply graceful yet abundantly feminine wedding dress. In a general fashion sense though, I love silk, in whatever form, if i had my way, i’ll be swathed in silks all day every day. Then, my best clothing detail in the world is draping, generous luxe draping. Combine both and it  makes sense then that I fell in love with this Amanda Wakeley collection at first sight.

Not for your conventional bride but it ticks all the boxes of chic.

It’ll cost you though. An Amanda Wakeley dress retails from £2,000. See more details here

So what do you think? Will you go for the classic ball gown or you’re more along these non fussy lines?

My very first ‘what i wore’: Wedding special

2 Aug

After another blogging hiatus *sigh sigh*I’ve got fresh inspiration from a beautiful weekend. I never thought i’d be doing one of these ‘what i wore’ posts though, lol. But hey, why not???

So, my sister’s wedding was over the weekend and it was the most beautiful and fun ceremony ever. I’m so so nostalgic about it, wishing there could be a re-run!

She looked oh so stunning in a beautiful tiered gown and cathedral length, faux-pearl embellished veil, every inch the excited bride. I almost bawled as she glided down the aisle with that big smile on her face *dreamy sigh*

I was so busy running all over the place doing my Chief Hostess job that I almost missed out on the fun. Thank God I was able to be part of the insanely fun ‘singles’ dance that burst into the spontaneous candy dance moves, out of nowhere! LOL. I had no clue how to do the routine so I pretty much stumbled along, trying to copy people, was so much fun! laughed and laughed.

I wore this lush royal purple Karen Millen dress, it was a stretch satin shift dress with folded bow neckline and peplum at the waist. I loved loved loved loved it. It was not just sleek chic but very comfortable, I hardly felt like I was wearing a thing. Perfect for a hot summer day too. We have to thank God for that beautiful weather, made the picture session at the beautiful garden work perfectly.

I wore with these two tone, patent peep toe shoes from Aldo. Had to ditch for jeweled flat sandals in the end, the 5.5 inch heels weren’t practical for literally running around! Some shoes ain’t made for walking, lol!

 

Topped with a burnt orange and gold, jeweled ‘DC’ fascinator by the lovely Yosola and pearl drop earrings, i was summer wedding ready, lol.

Sadly, i was too busy running around to take a proper full picture, so y’all are going to have to use your imagination!
