Wedding season is here in full effect, and shortly I will be going to two weddings one week apart (and possibly another in August). I’m feeling a bit confused about what to wear to these weddings because one is in the Bay Area where it will most likely be gloomy and/or chilly and the other is an evening wedding in Southern California where it will probably be very warm. Not only that, I’m starting to feel that my dresses just aren’t dressy enough anymore. I used to “dress up” more when I lived in Las Vegas, now I dress up casually and really have nothing to dress up fancy for anymore. I’m not sure how to explain it.
But it also may have something to do with not having gone to a wedding in a very long time. I have one dress that I really want to wear because I like it, but it’s white, and I don’t want to be the pooper that wears the white dress to a wedding. I have been looking for dresses to buy but nothing really stands out, so I think I’ll stick to what I already have. And I’ve narrowed it down to these choices of dresses and shoes, but willing to mix up the shoes. Maybe you guys can help me decide what to wear, I wouldn’t be opposed to wear the same dress to two weddings either since the two weddings do not overlap guests.
A strapless Ali Ro dress from Jeremy’s San Francisco and Fornarina snake heels from when I worked at Fornarina. I’ve worn the dress before here, but only with a top under because I was cold. I like the idea of mixing up the patterns.
An Anna Sui dress thrifted by my mom and Fornarina booties from the Fornarina store on Melrose. I wore this dress a few years ago here on my birthday. I really love this dress but it feels a little too covered up?
Dries van Noten heels from Nordstrom Rack and I’ve worn this Richard Chai for Target dress several times, my favorite of which was here. But is wearing Target to a wedding dress way too casual or am I just crazy?
Leifsdottir dress from Jeremy’s San Francisco and Yves Saint Laurent heels from Rose Bowl Flea Market. I haven’t worn this dress at all yet and I really want to, but the straps are very awkwardly placed, I want to move them a little bit over before I wear it.
And I’m starting to see how everything is black or purple! I still have some time and may go look for another dress if the price is right. Then I’ll need to pick my accessories, shouldn’t this have gotten easier as I get older? And Diana, my sister :) if you see this, tell me what you think!
