The wedding season is in a full swing. I personally have 4 weddings this summer (excluding the ones I had in the spring and will have in late fall). Dressing for weddings can get to be pretty expensive. It’s a girl thing to have to buy a new dress for every wedding. And with new dress, we usually want to buy shoes that go exactly with that dress. Then hair, makeup, and the bill can add up pretty quickly. In the last few years I have had about 5 weddings per year on average, so imagine how many dresses and shoes that is. Well, I personally will commit offense of wearing one dress to more than just one wedding. I am not a fan of dresses that are too dressy, especially satin ones, so my dresses give me the flexibility to wear them to other events throughout the year. Usually the dress I buy is not too formal. To make is more formal all I do is change up the shoes, accessories, hair and makeup. I love versatility when it comes to any piece of clothing, especially a dress.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
But who says we have to wear dresses only to weddings? I disagree. Recently, partly because I could not find a dress that I liked, I wore this outfit to one of my friend’s weddings. You have seen me wear this skirt with a white blouse while in Spain which is great for going out for cocktails or dinner. I have also attached a few pictures where I paired it with a sweater for an outfit that you can wear in the fall to an office maybe. Switch up the sweater for a blouse and a blazer and you have yet another outfit. For the wedding, I combined it with my corset and necklace which you have already seen me wear here, with a skirt from Zara, chandelier earrings and voilĂ . Now granted, if the wedding you are going to is very formal, this may not work as well, but most of my friend’s weddings are not too formal. You may want to switch the mini skirt for a nice pencil skirt which you most likely already own, pair it with dressier stiletto sandal and it can go to a more formal wedding too. Just think about it, there are many options available for you in your closet already. You just have to let your inspiration run wild and try things out. You don't really need another dress in your closet that will hang there and collect dust, and remind u every time u see it what a waste of money it was, do you? Ciao!
