no matter if you're planning your wedding or happen to be in the wedding industry (like me), sooner or later you're going to have to attend a wedding — and thus start thinking about dresses on a much smaller (and non-white) scale.
naturally, i obsess over my guest attire as much as I do everything else wedding-related, and have found that fashion choices for a late-summer evening wedding can be a little tricky. of course, with help from elie tahari, christian louboutin and kate spade, i'm always in good hands.
my faaaavorite piece is the elie tahari dress. it's light-as-air silk, and with the tulip sleeves, it will be perfect for warm weather that cools down in the evening.
with all the sleek black and splashes of purple, i thought the clutch should be simple. kate spade is queen of simple chic, so her lella clutch was an easy choice. as were these onyx drop earrings from forever 21 — they look like a million bucks but barely cost anything at all. honestly, forever 21 is one of my favorite accessory stores, because it lets me save so i can splurge on critical items like shoes.
oh, and these shoes. purple louboutin suede pumps. don't be afraid of suede in summer. the peep-toe keeps these airy and appropriate. and, um, they're louboutin. need i say more?
