Black Tie


Hello again! It’s finally Friday – I hope everyone had an awesome week! I’ve kinda got to keep it short today, I have a lot to do this morning and I’m hoping to make it to my 10:30am gym class too. Anyyyyway. This was my reception look for this past weekend’s wedding! I shared it kinda on Instagram/Snapchat in a somewhat blurry video that honestly didn’t do it justice, so here’s a better look at it.

I bought this dress in Mecca when I went on Umrah (pilgrimage) at the end of 2013. It was soooo cheap at this warehouse place, because it didn’t have a hemline on the sleeves or bottom of the dress, but I took it because it fit me like a glove. My mom added a duchess satin hemline and made the overlay cape skirt (I still don’t know what to call it haha). Without the overlay skirt it has a little train on its own too which looks pretty but more plain. The earrings are from hell. JOKES. They’re from Balmain’s H&M collection and they KILL my ears. I used to have a thing for large over-over-oversized earrings, and had to train my ears to wear them but damn, it’s really been a while! 

Anyway. I must go now. I haven’t worked out since Monday so I have to make this class today.

Have an amazing and safe weekend, babes!
