Fall Wedding - 4 Ways, a Blogger Collaboration.

Today, I am taking a break from the 30 for 30 Outfits and posting a Fall Wedding Look. I love dressing up so I came up with the idea of getting together 3 other Mommy Bloggers - whose blogs I love and follow - and show you all (side by side), how we styled an Outfit for a Fall Wedding. The best thing about this collaboration is that we come from different parts of the world. Our cities and countries we live in all have a different vibe or atmosphere and our styles are a little different, also. But that is the beauty of blogging and blogger collaborations. Oh and here is a fun fact: we are all Moms to girls, so we have that in common.

Here are a few things I noticed in our Fall Wedding Looks.
~ Susan, myself and Marta are all wearing Black+White.
~ Susan and Jill opted for Pumps while Marta and I are both wearing Bejeweled Peep-Toe Heels.
~ Jill opted for a Fun Little Bag while the other 3 of us are carrying a Clutch.
~  All the ladies are wearing Gorgeous Necklaces. I am the only one without a Statement Necklace, but I do have some Statement Earrings.
~ And last but not least, the style of the Dresses that Jill and I are wearing are very similar. They have that 60's "Mad Men" vibe to them. 
What can I say, great minds think alike!

Make sure you stop by Jill's Blog (Doused in Pink),  Susan's Blog (Charming Lucy) and Marta's Blog (Sweaters, Stripes & Sweets) today to see all of their Gorgeous, Elegant Wedding Looks, as well. Thank you for doing this ladies. It was fun and you all look Beautiful!

I own many Dresses from White House Black Market and this is by far one of my Most Favorites. It is Black+White, it is Plaid (which is a Fall Print, in my humble opinion), it has a flare skirt, a fitted bustier and a cinched waist which altogether accentuate my hourglass figure. I wanted to add a pop of Red to the Outfit so I chose some Red Satin Peep-toe Pumps and of course Red Lipstick. I carried a Little Retro Clutch which is printed with an old cover of "Allure Magazine" and it all worked together with the slight retro vibe this outfit gives. I kept my Jewelry Simple: a pair of Silver+Baby Pink Gemstone Statement Earrings, a Pearl+Flower Little Bracelet and a Seapearl+Silver Oval-Stone Cocktail Ring. The baby pink flowers on the Bracelet match the Baby Pink Stones of the Earrings. I let my hair down, brushed it on the side and sleeked the top of it with some hair spray, while styling the bottom with my hands and a tiny bit of hair mousse. To me this Outfit reads Fall Wedding. What do you think?

  7. This is such a great idea! I have a couple of weddings coming up and I always get excited about finding a dress or shopping from my closet and accessories when deciding what to wear. I do think black (and some white) is perfect for a wedding. I also love a nice statement necklace! Your dress is beautiful on you and with the red shoes and statement earrings, you really don't need a statement necklace. Thanks for sharing these!
