What I Wear: to a Wedding

12:21:00 AM

So as I shortly explained on my last haul post, one of my friend was having her wedding a couple of weeks ago on early December, and she gave me this peach brocade lace garment that supposed to be a "dresscode uniform" on her wedding. So here in Indonesia it's a popular gesture to do that. It’s almost the same as a bride giving her bridesmaids the same coordinated dresses or a bride choosing a specific color for her bridesmaids to wear as a “uniform dresscode” at the reception.
Here we gave the family and close friends (in substitute of bridesmaids) the same clothing garment so that each of them can go to their tailor and everyone will turned up at the reception wearing the same garment as “uniform” to differentiate them from the other guests.

So anyway I received a lace brocade fabric in peach, and I gave my tailor a picture of a dress from a catalog, but in the end she decided to made it a little different by adding a V waistline and shorten the sleeves. Although it didn’t turned out exactly like I had in mind, I thought the end result is pretty cute ;)


I've been wanting a lace dress in soft pastel hue for so long, and now I finally have one. Although it's not exactly the dress I had in mind but the pretty peach color and the romantic silhouette of the dress pretty much satisfy me. But I actually felt a little bit childish in this outfit though... Hubs said it isn't so, he said it didn't make me look childish, but I have one little girl commenting on how pretty the dress look, and another commenter on my Chictopia page said that I looked like a Disney princess in a good way. And that just answer my question, right? ^o^ 
Well I don't mind looking like a princess since I have always want to be a princess since I was a child (don't we all?) ;p

So anyway for the wedding reception party I decided to pair the peach lace dress with silver adornments. And I think the color combo works out really well!

Necklace is a gift from Saudi Arabia (courtesy of my aunt), Earrings and Bracelet are from the white gold jewelry set my MIL gave me, Sparkly floral ring is from De Moda, Silver triple headband is from Naughty, Silver Oriental-inspired purse is from Elizabeth, Silver Grey Heeled Sandals are from Fladeo.



And my make-up for that day:

ZA Energy Water Skin Lotion

 Ponds White Beauty Spot-less White Cream

And as for the hair style I copied this Greek Goddess hairstyle from one of my favorite Youtube Hairstyle Guru: Lilith Dark Moon (well my version is like the messy version because you can see lots of hair sticking up everywhere on the pic above, LOL):

  2. Hi Damsels,
    I did curl my hair before styling it and Lilith also mention in the video that this style is best for curly hair and medium length. Why dont you give it a try ;) maybe you could use thinner headband like I did (my hair is thick).

    Hope it helps :)
