When it comes to wedding attire I love to embrace playful, fun designs. It’s such a joyous occasion that it’s the perfect opportunity to wholly embrace vibrant hues, embellishments, and dramatic textures. So, when I knew a friend’s wedding was on the horizon I immediately bookmarked this Rachel Gilbert dress for the occasion. This dress features an elegant column design but is taken to the next level with the full length ruching. The texture gives it some depth and the gathered finish makes for a flattering silhouette. Also, sign me up for anything that involves bold finishes—particularly when it comes to feathers. The off the shoulder design is given an element of theatre with the fuchsia feather trim and achieves a beautifully constrasting textured effect against the ruching.
Outfits are all about balance and in this instance the boldness of the dress needed to be offset by simple accessories. Black is a no brainer as far as being a perfect complementary colour to pink, so I went for a black Miu Miu clutch that I’ve had for years. It’s proven itself to be a smart buy, because without fail, it will get an outing to several different occasions each year. I love the classic matelassè pattern on this Miu Miu bag plus it’s the ideal size to carry all my essentials, not to mention it also adds a glam touch with the ring embellishment. These two strap Giuseppe Zanotti heels are also a longtime fave and the streamlined design is the ideal counterpoint to such a statement-making outfit.
