Black and Gold

27 Aug

Happy Monday Gorgeous Gems,

As mentioned in Friday’s post that I had a wedding to attend to yesterday, and for the event I decided to wear this little number.

My husband is Lebanese and Michigan has one of the largest Lebanese/Arab if not the largest communities in the country. Their community is very united which means we attend a wedding at least once or a couple of times a year and would you believe that I was somewhat under-dressed! Yes, the LBD will not cut it at these events. Women wear gowns, and have their hair and make-up done, it’s like prom all over again. Only I won’t bring myself to buy a $600.00 gown that I will only wear once because a lot of time you see the same people, and there is no way you can be caught in the same dress at another wedding.

I know I will be wearing this little number come the holidays.

Sunglasses: Tory Burch similar here, dress Adam Lippes (Clients of this designer Oprah Winfrey, Kelly Ripa) stilettos Micheal Kors, clutch La Regale.

Stay tuned for pictures of the event.

Until next time,
Monica

      Thank you very much glad that I am still considered trendy, sometimes I think that I dress too mature for my age, but I have been told that I have an old soul, that must be the reason.

    Wow it sounds a little stressful but I bet it must be very glamourous! I think this dress is gorgeous. I don’t think I would spend 600 on a dress to a wedding as a guest.

      Yes it is very glamorous and somewhat stressful women are very done up, but over the years I have become comfortable with my style.

      Thank you for stopping by.

      Awe, thanks for sure, and I love this dress because it is so comfortable to dance in, no feeling like it’s too short or your bra strap is showing, etc., and you know us we love to dance, and it is so much better when you are comfortable.

      I can’t wait to hear the details.
