Wedding Guest Attire Breakdown: The Infamous Cocktail Party

Attire: Classic New York

Thoughts: What does this even mean? Can I come wearing a nude dress a la Carrie Bradshaw circa 1997?!

Outfit: In all honesty I think there was a word left off that invitation. So without disturbing the bride-to-be with a petty question like “oh hi you don’t have 30 million other things going on so can you tell me what the heck I should wear to your wedding?” – take it from a pro – never ask that question – I just went with whatever I was going to feel good in. Enter this little L.A.M.B. cocktail dress that I have loved since the day I got it. I’ve worn in shockingly to a few different occasions over the years and it never fails me. On that note, you SHOULD always have a ‘never-fails-me’ dress hanging in your closet whether for a wedding, a date or another fun occasion.

Hair: With this look I had helped Steph Brinkerhoff (aka @Hairandmakeupbysteph) for a bridal training she was doing in NYC. I had a bouffant to end all bouffants. While not normally my style, it was fun to have this and it paired perfectly with the dress for a very retro Jackie O vibe. Definitely not one I can recreate on my own but if Steph wants to come back and whip this up, she can any day! Let me preface this hair is only made possible with extensions, unless god gifted you with hair commercial hair! My lush locks are in fact extensions from RPZL (more to come on that soon!)

Makeup:  I enlisted the girls from Glamsquad to get me wedding ready … in the comfort of my apartment. Where let’s be honest I could sit in sweats and not feel remotely bad. They’ve said time and time again that they’ve seen it all!  But Glamsquad nails it every time and with a focus on weddings and wedding parties their team of pros make for a great day of glam team to get not only the wedding party but the bride ready as well! Trust me, these girls know their stuff!!

On the 10 deal: One of my favorite services in NYC is Glamsquad. It’s not a paid ad, I genuinely love the service. They come straight to your apartment, office, home, wherever to do anything from manicures and blowouts to bridal makeup and whole wedding parties.
