    A Night of Glitter and Wedding Bells

    Back in July, I had the chance to attend one of my friend's wedding. I know this is a few months back but I thought I'd make a post on something other than my usual casual outfits. She was a good friend of mine back in high school and it was such an honour to be a part of her special day. 
    I was working at CraftyCouture during the day so I wasn't able to make it to the wedding ceremony. It was pretty tricky deciding on what to wear to the banquet that night as I only had two hours to get home from camp, get changed and head to the banquet. I'm usually tired and not looking my best after camp, so I needed something quick and easy. 
     I decided to go with a one piece dress. This dress is one of my favourites. I love the cut outs at the waist; it's definitely the wow factor that I'm looking for. To spice it up even more, the skirt is a sparkly chiffon which really adds interest to the black top. Other than the bold details on this dress, another great element of this dress is that it's stretchy! No tugging on zippers or buttoning up... super easy peasy to get in and out! So you might be much is this awesome dress. Believe it or not, this dress was only $20! I got it at Sawgrass Mills Outlet mall this summer on my trip to the U.S. It was definitely one of my fabulous finds of the season.

    For make-up, I went with a dark liner and a clean smokey eye. A pair of nude pumps was all I needed to finish off the look. You can never go wrong with a pair of nude heels! It not only helped to elongate my legs but it left the spotlight on my dress. All in all, I thought this dress served me well for the night. I was comfortable and it definitely got a few heads turning.
