My last post was a little on the heavy side. Let’s lighten things up a bit with some fashion, shall we?
I recently attended the wedding of a close friend and wanted to look especially spectacular, as I would be acting as pro bono DJ of sorts.
Not THAT kind of Bono. Ew.
I knew I wanted to show off my little indigo one-sleeve number from Forever 21, but I kept flip-flopping on what accessories would work best. That dress makes me feel like a goddess, so I decided to just roll with that theme and go bold with GOLD.
Shoes by Carlos Santana (yes, THAT Santana): ~$50 on clearance at Macy’s
Gladiator ring: $20 at NYC flea market
Bracelet: ~$15 at Lane Bryant
Belt: ~$20 at Torrid
I won’t lie, the shoes were KILLING me by the end of the night. But I’m a smart girl who takes her own advice, so I had a pair of flats to change into — gold ones to match my get-up, OF COURSE.
Like a real professional, I completely failed to get a decent snapshot of me actually wearing the ensemble, so this is the best I can do.
Naturally, it was taken at the tail end of the night,
when I was definitely at my freshest!
I’m guilty of cropping out the guys, but my legs were never in the shot to begin with so you *MIDAS WELL believe me that the shoes looked fabulous.
*See what I did there? You did? Yeah, sorry. They can’t all be gold.
OMG….love the Midas pun. You look goldly and godly Addi…per uze. Love it.
Haha I’m so glad you appreciate it. And I’m not surprised, because it is incredibly stupid. Exactly the kind of thing we would say to each other, actually. <3
yo day dress fly but dem punz FLYER
Super cute! I love gold with purple.
It’s a pretty saturated color that I don’t wear very often (the purple), which I think is why I felt so amazing in it. It was fresh and new! Luckily, my left breast did not escape as I once feared.
