This post should actually be entitled what-to-wear-to-a-wedding-when-you-have-no-clothes-or-money. Yes, I wore this to a wedding and as much as I like this ensemble, I don’t think it’s wedding-worthy. At all! I was struggling to find something to wear in a wardrobe that needs a complete revamp, but had no money to do so. I felt so insecure the whole time sitting in the church; thank God I was only invited to the ceremony. I wouldn’t have been able to handle going to the reception in this get-up.
I think this would have been more appropriate for a fancy night out with the girls or date night. I could have chosen not to put this outfit up, but hey, I’m human and I don’t always get it right. Yes, sometimes I do wear the wrong outfit to a particular function and I’m still learning. It actually makes me laugh when I look back at some of my previous outfits and just think ‘WHYYY?’
On a more positive note, I love the illusion that these trousers give. They say that vertical stripes make you appear slimmer and wearing this outfit, I did look taller too. I would so wear this again, just never to a wedding.
Have you ever made an outfit blunder? Go on, admit it. Haven’t we all? *wink*
Also, an update: I’ve finally found a new job as a PA. Woo! I’m happier about the fact that I’m working again, but let’s see how things go. This could lead me anywhere.
And… this was the first time I have been able to wear a full face of makeup since the eczema dilemma. I’m taking it easy and allowing my skin to breathe, but it’s nice to be able to wear foundation after so long.
