This past weekend, I attended one of the most beautiful weddings ever for two of our friends. I mean the decor was everything especially the table settings. Oh, and did I mention that every guest had a personalized glass coke bottle as their place card? Now, that’s major. I loved everything about this wedding from the people there to the food to the open bar (lol) to the violinist playing Halo to the DJ aka DJ Toure, our wedding DJ and my favorite DJ out of Chicago. And thanks to DJ Toure, I had to switch into my Converse and ditch those heels. By the end of the night, my hair was in a ponytail, and that blowout was donzo. LOL!
All Black Everything But What Should I Wear?
When I received the invitation for the wedding, there were two things that caught my eye:
- Black Tie
- All Black Attire Requested
WOWZERS! Immediately, I panicked because I had nothing to wear, but thanks to a trip to the mall, I found this beautiful JS Collection gown.
I loved loved loved this gown the moment I tried it on in the store. From the tulle to the mesh to the mermaid hem, this dress made a statement, and I loved everything it was saying. Thanks to my doll T, I looked past the price and purchased it. Yippee!
But What About Makeup?
Hello NARS! You are my new favorite makeup brand. Hello Terry Rayson! You are my new favorite makeup artist. Thanks to my girls, I found myself at the NARS makeup counter at Nordstrom the day of the wedding, and that’s where I met the Terry, a very talented makeup artist you should most definitely follow on Instagram. I simply loved his work and got so many compliments. He has the best personality!!!! Plus, he gave me brows; I never have perfect brows. I loved my makeup so much that I ended up buying the bronzing powder in Casino, Velvet Lip Liner in Nihiwatu, and Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl.
