Last Saturday I attended the wedding of a very dear friend from high school. It was great and we had a blast at the wedding party, with lots of eating, drinking and dancing.
It was the first time that I watched an Evangelical wedding ceremony (I’m a Christian Orthodox myself), and I must say that I was impressed. Everything was lovely.
I chose to wear almost the same outfit I wore on my brother’s wedding last year, with small alterations.

I love this shade of blue and I think it looks fantastic against my skin tone. I felt so feminine in this dress.
Here’s the accessories’ close-up as usual:
To be honest, I took the pics before I was completely ready because I wanted to have enough time for the photos. So, for the wedding I ditched the Hakuna Matata bracelet I wear in these photos and of course I put my make up on.
I know I can’t show you the full make up (hiding part of your face has its disadvantages), but I can assure you it was really nice (I’m far from a make-up artist, or those girls who seem to be like one, but I was proud of it). The part I wanted to show you though, was my lips.
And that, I CAN show you:
Leaving aside, the “mask” and the messy room on the background of the pic, this is a close up of me, just before I leave for the wedding. It was meant to be a personal photo and that’s why I didn’t wear my sunglasses as I usually do.
I’m wearing a cherry red lipstick, with a pearly red lipgloss on top of it, which really gave so much to the outfit. Also wearing, only one of the two earrings, because of the wrap around braid hairstyle I had.
The lipstick is quite old, and unfortunately discontinued, but it’s the sheer honey one by Artistry (Amway), and the lipgloss is from Beauty Cycle (Amway again) and it’s called Garnet. That one I wear every day. It has a really soft red color and a sparkling effect.
The reason why I was really excited though was my hairstyle for the wedding. From the moment I saw the wrap around braid on Aquí, I knew I wanted to try it. Even though Sara made a nice tutorial on how to make it yourself, I preferred to leave the job to my friend, who is a hairdresser. I’m only good with the classic braids not the ones who have the same method as the French braids. And I really wanted it to be perfect because I had a wedding to attend. So here’s the close up of the braid.
You can see Sara’s blog, Aquí on the background of the right pic, if you look closely, as I was showing the hairstyle to my hairdresser earlier.
The braid was perfect, however my asymmetrical cut hair, made it difficult to look too polished. As a result there were some hair pulling out of the braid, but we pulled some more to make it look more natural, and finished the hairstyle with tons of hairspray to keep it safe.
Nevertheless, I was really pleased by the result, and I got many compliments about it.
Ending this post with a pic of the shoes, as I usually do. I wore my D&G bow sandals again, which are the perfect match for the clutch.
So, with this post finally coming to an end, I have to ask you once again. What do you think about this outfit and my hairstyle? Tell me all about it in the comments’ section below. And if you enjoy reading this blog, please show me your support by following any way you prefer. I would really appreciate it.
Have a great day and a perfect month everyone! It’s officially Fall from today! *sigh*
