The Core Outfit
When we saw this Alice + Olivia dress it literally took our breath away. The soft colours, romantic floral print, and pretty A-line cut makes it a perfect garden wedding party dress. It also doubles as a stunning date-night dress that will make every person in the room stop and stare.
It needs an equally elegant pair of glasses to enhance the ladylike style, so we chose these Love glasses that feature a brown pink cat eye design. The mix of soft milk chocolate brown and light pink create a sense of romance.
We love these cat eye frames by Love glasses. The shape is elegant and the colours go with the soft colour palette used with the rest of the outfit. It’s the perfect pair of go-to glasses when you want to add a girly touch to your overall look.
Sticking to a feminine theme, we paired the dress with another classic – Manolo Blahnik satin and feather pumps. Note: if you are wearing these to a garden party where you run the risk of sinking into mud and grass, make sure to either wear heel protectors (clear, plastic heels that pop on and off your heels easily), or switch up the shoes for a pair of closed-toe heels.
As for the bag, we chose a Rupert Sanderson light green bag in just the right size and shape. The rounded, rectangular shape with gold accents compliment the ladylike vibe and keeps the outfit from being too matchy-matchy (imagine having a bright pink bag with the dress? It’s not going to work). A timeless Cartier watch highlights a slender wrist and is the perfect accessory for a lady.
A no-makeup look keeps you looking pretty and polished. Get soft, pretty eyes with a few swipes of dark brown mascara and light brown smokey eye makeup. A peach-pink blush will give your cheeks the right amount of flush, and a similar shade of lip-gloss will keep you glowing all day long.
