STYLE RECIPES: Wedding Guest

October 29, 2012

Filed Under : STYLE

Dress: Juicy Couture (on sale here!), Lipstick: NARS Heat Wave, Clutch: J. Crew Factory, Shoes: Zara

I’m starting a new thang on the blog called “Style Recipes.”  Sidenote: When I got my driver’s license at 16, I wanted a custom license plate that said MZTHANG.  Really glad I didn’t go through with it.  Anyway, so this new thang I’m doing involves some outfit postage.  I’ve always wanted to do more outfits around here but never really got the ball rolling.  Well, it’s rolling now.  Are you cool with it?  I really hope so because sometimes I have mixed feelings.

So now that the ball is officially rollin’, I wore this outfit to my cousin’s wedding a few weeks ago.  Usually, I gravitate towards neutral colors but I couldn’t resist pairing this bright fuchsia dress with an even brighter red clutch.  Bright + bright = all right.  Cheesy?  I’m getting to that age where I start saying cheesy things and I don’t realize I’m saying them.

Also, my cousins are pretty adorable:

Emersonmade fall collection

I’m a huge, huge fan of Emersonmade.  I mean, what’s not to love?  First of all, Emerson is probably the cutest ever, and second, she makes damn good clothes.  Some of her new fall collection is up on the site and I’m in love with the Gunmetal Skinny jeans.  Perfectly cropped at the ankle, I tell you.

In fact, I would love to wear the whole outfit that Emerson is wearing up there, with these few additions:

  1. A bold red lip in the form of Poppy King for J.Crew lipstick.
  2. Some chunky baubles like this Coiled Teardrop Necklace from Anthropologie.
  3. An easy carry-all that I can throw all my stuff into, like this Fold Over Bag from Toast.
  4. I’d swap out the red patent pumps (but, of course, put them on again later) for some leopard loafers, like these Barneys Co-Op flats.
