Non-Existent FOMO for Weddings
Dry grilled chicken, a side of plain mashed potatoes drowning in sugary gravy to guise the plainest of Janes underneath, and a side of two steamed carrots with one piece of cauliflower and one piece of broccoli. If you intend to serve this at your wedding, kindly consider my rsvp as unable to attend.
Cursive Lovely & Garden Venues
On the topic of weddings, I have found a spruce of gliterati and a romper appearance could make my final answer change from “I can’t come.” Upon receiving the lovely invitation made by Scarlet & Gold in gold cursive lettering for Bri Seeley’s Fall ’14 private collection viewing, taking place at a garden in Los Angeles for her Chrysalis collection, my brain did a little of this:
Cupcakes! Bri Seeley! Garden Party! Fall Fashion! Cocktails! Swag that doesn’t include a candle with a mushy love quote, a bride and groom plastic figurine trinket, and whatever other junk the couple thought would enhance my life. I understand these are cheaper favors, but my gas, time, and this dress are not. So if Kix’ies will be there, I will be there.
Non-Existent FOMO for Weddings…Continued
Brain excitement went off in that order. Cupcakes are the number #1 reason why I will be there, which unveils an understanding to sustainability of my panza. Following the brain moment, a realization came, my tanchiness and beloved panza had an ample opportunity here to enjoy a garden party without the social adherence to zip up a strapless A-line dress with flowers and bright colors. These do not flatter me, and I’m just not that kind of girl. This is reason #2 I can’t come. But for Bri Seeley’s Fall fashion, I had just the romper, in the perfect color, to wear with the perfect shoes.
Anti-Garden Party Attire: The Romper
I herald Veronica M Clothing. It’s oh-so-good and her pieces are the longest lasting in quality and style in my closet. The $70 romper, scored on sale in a size medium today, will get more than its fair share of cost-per-wear for years to come. Quite frankly, anything making my panza look this damn good is worth every dime spent. It’s a romper made so well, the panza goes away like magic! The rich navy color of the clinging fabric making for comfort to be able to move around. It is also feminine enough to pass off for more dressier occasions. It’s thick so unwanted showings of undergarments or rides up in my apple bottom don’t happen. Having a petite frame, the usual pinch is still required in the back, but it’s an overall epic fit (as is everything made by Ms. Veronica M). It’s the life.
Coulda, Shoulda, Woulda Wore Wedges
I do it all the time – at gardenesque events or outdoor weddings I’ve been to involving plant scenery – I manage fashion failure by forgetting my wedges. By wearing heels, each and every time, I make an awful awful mistake. Wearing my pair Miss Albright kitten heels from Anthropologie, the beautiful red wine color with a top half patterned in coated baby pink glitter were bound for seepage in garden mud. Mud on your heel stem make quite the fashion statement. Walking and wobbling, I tried my hardest to minimize the sinking effect into the grass, which I knew with every step was staining the stem of the heel. All the while I was trying to save the cupcake. In the end, the stem looked like what I think they call iridescence, but from here on out, for garden parties, I’m sticking with wedges. I highly advise you do too.
Accessorize For Garden Parties
Bri, if you have a garden party, know that I want to attend and I will come in gliterati to impress other bloggers instead of the opposite sex. We women do that, we dress for each other. Blinging and subtly shining with a pair of large size bebe stud earrings and a gold leaf shaped headband was called for the occasion. No need to wash my hair, just braid it up and wear a smile on my face to distract incoming hair judgers.
Dressed for the Occasion: Bri Seeley’s Fall ’14 Presentation
In romper and glierati, it was an honor and privilege to attend Bri Seeley’s garden presentation with fellow Los Angeles fashion bloggers. With cupcake in hand and snapping away with my camera with the other, I scored preview shots of what will be hot this Fall from Bri. Fur appearances paired with maxis of sheer chiffon in blacks, reds, and golden yellows. Renditions of her classics such as the A-line ‘Jaclyn’ skirt and bows tied so daintingly with the ‘Belle’ blouse. Bri killed it with her Fall fashion statements as part of the Chrysalis collection. Bravo Ms. Bri, I want to wear Bri Seeley and only wish it were Fall already!
Enticed with a garden occasion and must attend components, I’ll gladly save any date AND RSVP. XOXO Bri Seeley. Check out this Fall’s collection!
