"You can never be overdressed or overeducated." ~Oscar Wilde
I completely agree but I do know the feeling of sticking out when you look a little more fancy than the rest of the party. This was the case last weekend when I attended my cousin's wedding. My sister looked adorable in a orange one-shoulder cocktail dress and my mom looked effortlessly gorgeous in her tan and white sheath dress. I'm smacking myself for not getting any pictures of them! They looked good, but a bunch of other people looked like they hardly tried. I mean COME ON PEOPLE! This is someone's wedding. If you're going to wear a polo shirt, atleast throw on a nice-fitting blazer!
Anyway, I went hunting for a dress the previous week to find something to wear and I instantly fell in love when I tried this dress at Zara. I felt like a goddess! I couldn't believe a dress that lovely dress could have a price tag under $200. I then checked the tag to discover it is mostly polyester. However, I must note that polyester has come a long way since the days of the sweaty halter dresses of yesteryear. Don't get me wrong, I'm a total vintage enthusiast, but the newer stuff has a much better feel. My amazing dress has two sexy slits up the side which made me appear as though I was floating across the room. TO DIE FOR. DEAD.
Since I knew the dress was going to be on the fancy side, I didn't over do it on the accessories. I wore a simple gold cuff and a delicate gold chain with emerald and Ganesha charms. No earring, ovbi.
