When I got 3 days to prep up for a wedding I had to attend, I had to soak myself in self-tanner enhance my color for 3 days and hunt for a dress that's #1 cheap and #2 would look good and #3, would last me long. I saw this dress last Wednesday that I fell in love with. It was a long, blue empire cut dress that spelled BUY ME. It was either that or a body-hugging leopard print bareback dress, but I wanted to eat, so it was the obvious choice that I got.
Glad I soaked myself on self-tanner because the turquoise summery color looked good on sunkissed skin :) No time to tan friends!
On the rare times that I could be a girl, this was how I looked like yesterdayI'm a girl! I'm a girl! I'm a girl!!!!!!
The dress was absolutely long, and I had to wear heels to prevent myself from tripping. Height here became my advantage and the dress looked long to enhance how tall I was rather than drown me in fabric. Tip: empire cut dresses are fabulous. I could eat what I want and still hide it and still look good.
I've been always crazy with Diamond Hotel's desserts. :P, It's what I enjoy the most hahahahaha. The yogurt mousse was heavy, but it was really good.
I chose to curl my hair since the dress was very flowy, very laid back, and very bohemian. I used a 1" curling iron to curl my hair and lots of hairspray. My hair's naturally wavy so it doesn't fall flat easily and a lot of mousse and volumizer helped too. I kept accessories simple since I wanted to focus on the dress and the make-up, which is by the way, smoky blue eyes with a bit of sparkle and pastel pink lips. Makeup was done show-style since I wanted it to last, and boy it did. :DOn face:
