Midnight Floral

October 09, 2015


A few weeks back I attended a friends wedding and after countless attempts to style my hair differently I ended up going with my everyday do. Boring.  I knew I didn't want to be stuck in the same dilemma for my cousin's wedding last weekend so I caved, and booked an appointment with my bestie/hairdresser and went with a simple low-do. A few twists here, a few curls there... she made it look so easy! I really didn't want the hairstyle to look too done up, and I think she nailed the "messy, I just whipped this together" kinda look.

I was able to snag this dress at Winners just a few days before the event (procrastinating, much?), but as soon as I saw the blue floral pattern I was sold. Partially because I knew it would give me another excuse to wear my favourite heels (and we all know I've been jumping at any chance to wear those special pieces), and partially because it was dark, moody and perfect for a brisk fall evening. Unfortunately I had to scour 3 different Winners and Marshall's to finally find my size, but I eventually had success!

I brought along my gold sparkly clutch because it just screams party time, and it also brought out the gold studs on the shoes. All in all it was a fabulous evening! Want to know what wasn't so fab? Washing my hair out the next morning! Oh my, hairspray!

What do you think of the moody floral?

  1. I love this wedding look Gabriella! Good for you for going to the hair stylist for an up do, I always think of doing that but then fall back on my everyday curls. Love the hair, love the dress and don't even get me started on your shoes - LOVE!

  3. That print is amazing!! Very fall appropriate. I'm always so lazy with my hair for special events. Maybe I'll actually get it styled for the next one I attend!
