What I Wore Today: Wedding Guest

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

I was bitching and bitching about having nothing to wear and no time at all to shop for this wedding I had to attend last week. You know what they say about things that never seem to be around when you're looking for them but are all over the place when you don't need them? That's exactly how I felt. It seemed like all the malls and shops I entered were carrying nothing but sweetheart-cut, body-hugging, short cocktail dresses.  I hate feeling constricted so I always try my best to veer away from tight clothing (because I eat a lot and am too lazy to wear my Spanx).

After searching Megamall, Forever21, Zara and Topshop, with one day to go before the wedding...I finally ended up with this number from The Ramp:

I didn't want to spend a lot on something I was only going to wear once, so this dress was perfect at P2000. 
The tailoring was exquisite and I love that it's still the right amount of conservative for a wedding even if it's a one shoulder style. Trivia: I hate wearing clothes that require a special kind of bra.
