Wedding (Guest! or Bride!) Shopping Ideas

Hello everyone!

I’m working thru some important changes – starting back to school…while working part-time… and blogging (although I’ve been remiss lately and I’m trying to get back on track)!

But…the world waits for no one and I have a wedding coming up in a few months so I though I’d showcase some of the looks I’m considering! I actually am looking into doing some short videos & (after I work out the sound issue I’m having) I’ll be posting some videos!  

The first look I’m showcasing comes from one of my fave brands, ASOS.  Actually, I did a little ASOS haul and so I think all of my fave looks  – that might possibly make the cut –  are ASOS!

If you’ve never shopped ASOS, check out the site but be forewarned..there is a lot of product there and it can be very overwhelming!  My video will showcase some of the tips I use to help me navigate the site.

First – what is the event that I’m attending?  I’m actually taking an advanced public speaking class and we talked a lot today about “knowing your audience”.  It’s interesting because I was thinking how much this applies to styling, as well as giving a good speech!  So, know your audience attending the event!

It’s soon to be Spring wedding season…and no matter if you’re the bride, bridesmaid, or a guest…you should start shopping now for the perfect look!  I’ve been amazed how quickly pieces that I like but I wait to buy because I’m not sure if I loovvvee them go…away!!  I’ve also had two items that I bought – had shipped quickly – received, styled and quickly posted get bought out before I posted them!  

So…word to the wise…buy the dress, the shirt or shoes!  And if they don’t work out, return them but don’t let them get away!

Let’s get to this dress though!  Here’s the specs!

  • It’s so comfy & totally forgiving (in all the right ways).  I love the way it fits – loose but with a nice drape.  It’s well proportioned and true to size!
  • The COLOR: it’s a beautiful fuchsia & has the most beautiful sheen.  And it has full multi-colored embroidered flowers which are beautifully done and go up the front and back of the dress extending to one of the sleeves.  
  • Speaking of SLEEVES: they’re a bat wing style sleeve.  Now that sounds like it isn’t pleasant but they’re actually quite beautiful!

Styling:  I went light on all of the other accessories as the dress is a show stopper on its own!  I’m into brooches right now and so I added a Chanel inspired brooch and I think it really added that little bit of sparkle that completed the look!  I was also very excited to try out my new fave mules (actually, I have two new pair but these are slightly my fave, fave).  

As always, please shop my look by going to http://www.liketoknow.it/Cortneybre and you can shop directly from there!  Or it will direct you to ASOS and you can shop their entire site!  00000IMG_00000_BURST20200118151356074_COVER
