Hey! Welcome back! I hope you are well. This past weekend, I attended my boyfriend’s sister’s wedding. I have never been to one before so I was pretty excited. I was not too sure what to wear so my boyfriend’s mom sweetly offered to help me find something. We didn’t have to go hunting for anything because I was able to find my dress and shoes quite easily.
The dress is from the Jennifer Lopez collection at Kohls. I looked online for a link to it, but there are only plus sized version of this dress. (Link here) This was one of the first dresses Itried on and I just loved it! The floral pattern was so pretty and the length was perfect for my five foot frame. Although the dress did have a button for the cleavage area, I did have to safety pin it a bit more because it was a bit too low for a wedding. This dress was so comfortable! I love the faux wrap style of this dress and the little waist belt to the dress to keep my waist cinched.
I loved the dress but when I found the shoes for it, I was so happy with them We went to Off Broadway for our shoes and as soon as I saw these black velvet platform heels from Zigi Soho Garen , I was done looking for any others. I don’t wear heels very often so I wanted to go for a platform heel. The style of these was just everything I was looking for. Velvet is just so cute and gives the look a different texture to the outfit. They were super easy to walk in and I of course loved the extra height it gave me.
I’m not to fussy with accessories so I didn’t wear too much else as far as jewelry goes. I wore this evil eye bracelet and dangle earrings, but that was pretty much it.
The lipstick I decided on was Kat Von D’s Lolita. This is such a beautiful mauve pink color that went so well with my dress! I love this liquid lipstick.
The wedding itself was so beautiful! They had the ceremony in Knoxville on a roof top in Market Square. The place where guest could lounge around was such a picturesque place I just wanted to move in! It was such a nice day and everyone was so welcoming and happy. I was very grateful to have been invited and have been gifted my dress and shoes.
