My baby cousin got married last month at the Redondo Beach Historic Library. I dont know why, but I struggled to find a dress in store that would compliment the venue, but ModCloth never lets me down. It’s where I buy most of my dresses (I even bought my own wedding reception dress there, but that’s for another day). Anyway, I wanted it to be elegant / classy enough for the venue, but I wanted an edgy twist to it and ModCloth really pulled through for me. I really wish that I had gotten a good outfit photo, but I was so busy doing everyone’s makeup and running around helping, that I completely forgot to. So instead I’m just gonna post what I wore.
Mesmerizing Melody Dress – $129.99
Necklace is from Windsor, but is no longer available. Similar necklace here
Steve Madden Thronne (no longer available). Similar one here
Mossimo Ponte Moto Jacket (no longer available). Similar one here.
The dress itself is SOOO elegant, but it was super easy to give it an edgy twist with accessories, a chunky heel, and a moto jacket. For anyone curious, the dress is really well made. It has a super thick and heavy fabric (which was great because it rained that day), and it lays really well. It was a little tight in the bust area (I am a 34G so… most things are tight in the bust), but it has quite a bit of stretch. The cut is super forgiving if you have a little (or in my case a lot) to love, and the thickness of the fabric holds you in really well. I am in LOVE with this dress and wish I had another reason to wear it!
