Something Blue

Something Blue
 

Is it bad that I have a wedding in Atlanta to go to in 5 days and still have no clue what I'm wearing? Yes, probably. Don't get me wrong I've definitely been brainstorming ideas of the perfect sheath, but its not as easy as you think! The thing about weddings (especially African weddings) is every woman present is essentially there to show-out. No, it is never okay to try and upstage the bride, but who said anything about trying to upstage each other (all in good fun of course)? We are women after all, it's in our blood. I found this dress during one of my daily web hunts and had to post it for you all. It has the appropriately sexy wedding vibe that I'm striving for and free flowing fabrics meant for long nights of drink and dance. This wedding is taking place in the south so I also have to keep the heat in mind when choosing fabrics. When you're picking out your own wedding wear for the summer months always take the heat level into account, unless of course you want to be a pit/under boob stain victim. I don't think there's anything more horrifying. Chances are I'm going to be wearing a dress darker than this. That or red.
