This past weekend, I attended my beautiful cousins wedding at The Palm Hotel in Miami! It was a gorgeous celebration full of family, friends and amazing food. And the decor of her wedding was perfect for our South Florida weather.
Now about my outfit! When I went shopping, I had not planned anything in my mind that I wanted to buy. We all know that when you envision an outfit in your head and then get to the store, they never have exactly what you had envisioned, which can be such a dilemma. So I went to the mall with an opened mind and not a clue of what to buy.
My last stop was Banana Republic, and thank goodness because I was not having luck at any other store. I saw this black peplum dress right when I walked in a knew I needed to try it on. It is from their new collection and looked extremely versatile; something that I always look for in an outfit. After trying it on, I knew this dress was great for an occasion like a wedding, but also has the ability to be dressed down for a more casual look for work, while still being extremely chic!
Once I tried on the dress, I had “envisioned” a green pair of chandelier earrings, and lucky for me, Banana Republic has this STUNNING pair displayed in their jewelry section. Oh and the best part, everything in the store was 30% off so I was definitely purchasing both the dress and earrings. For my shoes, I opted for a cheetah heel that I wore with the dress seen in this post from my trip to Puerto Rico (sorry, I did not photograph them before).
All in all, I think this look came together perfectly. I am extremely happy with my purchases and I was very comfortable during the wedding. Now I have a beautiful peplum “LBD” that is multi-functional and great for many different affairs; plus a striking pair of teal earrings that I know I will get a lot of use out of.
Victoria’s Secret Angel, Alessandra Ambrosio wears this year’s Fantasy Bra that is worth $2.5 million!!! The bra was designed by the London Jewelers of New York who also designed the Bombshell Fantasy Fragrance bottle. Wow, that is one expensive undergarment!
