I just keep changing things up, huh? Let’s just agree that Fabu Fashion can happen any day. Anyway, wanted to share a few outfit deets on my wedding ensemble from this past weekend.
Dress – Dress Barn. I wanted something summery and cute for the wedding, and this dress definitely fit the bill. I think I’ve mentioned it before, but Dress Barn tends to skew toward the older, more mature lady. However, once in a while, I walk in and stumble upon a few beauties, and this one really worked for me, especially with the ruffles in the front, which I think made the dress unique. What worked even more was that it was on sale! Fist pump!
Shoes and Clutch Bag – DSW. Inspired, as usual, by outfits I saw on Pinterest when I was researching the look I wanted for the wedding, I decided to opt for nude pumps rather than the typical black shoe with a red dress. Enter these awesome pumps by Audrey Brooke. Found my size, loved the open toe and the heel, snatched them up. That yummy bag topped off the look.
Earrings and Bangles – Target. One of my go-to spots for accessories.
Hair – After deciding that I wanted a twist out for the day, I co-washed the strands with As I Am Coconut CoWash, followed by an apple cider vinegar rinse (can I profess my love for those, by the way?). My wonderful and patient friend then two-strand twisted the hair for me with a combination of Shea Moisture’s Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie and As I Am Twist Defining Cream. I kept in the twists for a couple of days before untwisting them the morning of the wedding. I spritzed them first with water, then used a bit of coconut oil as I untwisted. Turned out nice, huh? If I say so myself. Which I do. Here all night, folks.
Makeup – You already know I’m a MAC girl. The liquid foundation, Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation, and my beloved Ruby Woo and Currant Lip Liner = all MAC. The Colossal Volum’ Express by Maybelline for mascara and an assortment of eye shadow colors, all of which were purchased at Sally’s Beauty Supply, and I was done and ready.
Those are the deets!

You looked fab! I hadn’t shopped at Dress Barn probably for about 10 years until last summer. I was out of town with a friend who kept pulling out these cute dresses, all from there. I decided to go investigate when we got back and spent over $400 in one afternoon.
Girl!! If I ever need a cute, colorful dress, it’s the place to go. And thanks!!
I haven’t set foot in there since that day (although I did some damage on their website one day). Now you’re making me want to go back! Must…resist…urge. Lol!
