Before Eight

I finally got my chance to wear the beaded, silk dress I found at a thrift store in January. I knew then that it would be a lovely choice for Gretchen and Ray’s 1930’s styled wedding.


Dress, JMC. Shoes, Chinese Laundry. Bag, Maggi B. Bracelets, Charming Charlie (via swap), Epcot Morocco, and The Bead Factory.

Despite being swathed in silk and dripping beads, I felt a little underdressed. Many of the other guests looked like screen goddesses in their floor-length, satin gowns and retro-styled hair. Of course, no one outshone the bride. She wore a slinky, champagne gown, Jean Harlow finger waves, and a joyous expression.

What a lovely dress! Your makeup looks very nice here--did you get it professionally done for the event?

Kasmira said...

laniza - I did my own makeup. It looked pretty garish in the morning but much nicer in the twilight!
