CHEVRON & PEARLS

October 17, 2014


Good morning and happy Friday, Everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful week! 

I wanted to take this opportunity to share a few images of the outfit I wore to my friend's Wedding this week. Since the occasion was quite formal, I decided to go for a really glamorous evening look. So, even though I normally gravitate towards shorter cocktail dresses for evening, I opted to wear a floor-length gown instead. Btw, the search for a perfect floor-length gown began a few weeks ago, and was pretty fruitless until I found this beautiful chevron number. I think what attracted me the most  to this dress was the simplicity of silhouette combined with the boldness of black and white chevron pattern. 

Once I settled on the dress, I began thinking about the perfect jewelry to pair it with. Though I love wearing statement earrings for evening, something about the cut of the dress kept me thinking about bold wrist-wear. Since I am currently at the height of my obsession with pearls, I decided to layer pearl bracelets on both wrists. Despite the fact that I chose pearls as the main focal point of my wrist-wear, whenever I layer bracelets, I like to mix in one or more different textures. In this case, aside from layering pearl bracelets in various sizes and colors, I added a few rhinestone pieces as well. Finally, though I was slightly tempted to add a pair of dangling earrings, I decided to keep all of the attention on the wrists and opted to wear simple pearl studs, a decision I greatly appreciated once I started dancing and didn't have to deal with earrings constantly getting tangled in my hair:) 

What about you guys, do you share my more is more philosophy when it comes to jewelry? How do you feel about layering bracelets for evening?

I love this dress. It looks absolutely beautiful on you. Your hair, your accessories, everything looks beautiful.

As you say, the silhouette of this dress is simple but dramatic and the colours are so bold. The layered bracelets are just the perfect accompaniment and then I love the self-confidence you have to let your natural beauty dominate the neckline unadorned - your hair is jewel enough, I think. The bracelets look stunning. I have to hope that you were not too much competition for the bride!
