Royal Blue

Assymetrical Dress: Forever 21 +
Gold Shoes: Naturalizer
Earrings: Forever 21
Gold Necklace and Bracelet: Random Bazaar
Gold Bag: My fab mom's!

I attended a wedding in Sanctuario San Jose in Greenhills last Sunday. The bride and groom are young and beautiful, a picturesque couple if you ever saw one. I didn't even know my second cousin (the groom) until their wedding day, but I saw the event as an opportunity to dress up. Out came this assymetrical royal blue dress I've been keeping under wraps for months now. To work with the gold band on the waist, I opted for more gold in my accessories, bag and shoes.

My curly hair is brought to you by a Vidal Sassoon 2-in-1 hair iron and curler gifted to me last week by a very close friend. It's the first time I've used it and it's already my favorite gift of the year so far! If I wasn't afraid of damaging my hair, I'd curl it everyday!!! (See the abundance of the exclamation points there? It's fairly equivalent to my enthusiasm.) It wasn't even on my wish list, but my friend was right when she hinted at the gift weeks ago by saying, "It's something essential to your life."

What gift/s are you looking forward to receiving?

Hugs,
The Belated Bloomer

  1. Blue is beautiful, and you've proven that with this lovely dress. Your hair is beautiful as well. Nice necklace and sandals as well. For someone whose "official colors" for online work are blue and gold, I can appreciate this blue and gold combination here. Great one, Abi! :)
