My dear friend, Ellen of Talk&Spoon got married on Saturday. It was AWESOME SAUCE to be there and see her wed her forever handsome and gentlemanly DS. The wedding ceremony took place at St Philip's on York Street, while the reception was held that evening at Mr. Wong, well known for it's delicious Chinese food - and it did not disappoint. Can I get some more of that lobster thanks? I was a little disappointed I had the most disgusting cold going on, and I felt like dying, because it ruined my appetite and made me leave the reception early *insert tears of sadness*
I've been waiting and waiting to wear this 50s silk wiggle dress for awhile. It is so much fun and so elegant. I just want to swish everywhere in it with my mini capes, or wings. For the evening portion of the event I actually swapped into my grandmother's rhinestone accessories and my mother's Oroton Swarovski clutch, but I couldn't get any decent pictures in the restaurant, boo.
People occasionally ask me if I feel awkward dressing up... NO! I'd rather be the most dressed up person in a room and be remembered for it, rather than under dressed. There's no time for that, life is short and if the worst anyone can level at me is that they remembered me for being the girl in heels and rhinestones then what could possibly be bad about that? I say rock being dressed up, wear sparkly things, take everything you wear to the next level and don't apologise. If people are looking it's a good thing - they had no idea before you entered the room that every day could really be an event. And if someone feels like being nasty about it, then remember, they're probably just envious they can't be as ridiculously confident and fabulous as you.
