I received a lovely phone call from my friend Erika this afternoon. She is one of my college sisters and the main reason we took a detour to California. We just had to see her walk down the isle. While I haven't had the time to get some lovely photos together of the day (it seems all my America posts were put on hold when I started working), It did remind me to upload these pics of what I wore on her wedding day...The actual wedding post will come very soon.
So I had packed a pretty little black dress to wear (I was taking only essentials) I decided that I wanted to find something a little more summerish.....so I was delighted to walk into Forever 21 and pick up this dress for only $23 (from memory)......I adore the bright colours and the light fabric. When I picked it up I wasn't sure if it'd be too simple but the colours, the pattern and the price won me over; and in the end I liked it.
I managed to see some wonderful Frida Kahlo works in New York and when I saw the little flowers also in Forever 21 I thought they'd be cute with the outfit. The hair and flowers remind me of Frida Kahlo and it had been ages since I had braided my hair (so I guess I was subconsciously inspired?). I would not normally do my hair like this for a wedding, but I think the change made me like it more. I just kept adding punches of bright colour with the lips and the bag and I wore my trusty wedge boots because they were the only ones I packed. I figured it's summer so I can go colour crazy!
I thought I'd upload this post because this outfit was new...and I am gearing up to post my BNNM outfits....so excited about it and those that have decided to join me in the challenge. Nothing New? Hell Yeah, let's do this!!
