I’m back blogging!! This post has taken forever for me to finish. Lol! Here are pics from my client Luzia’s brother’s wedding in Brazil last summer. I was tasked with helping her find the perfect gown, one that wouldn’t outshine the bride’s but enough to make a statement. Luzia is the big sister of the groom (Edimar at left) and was responsible for walking him down the aisle. We decided to go with this beautiful sequined gown by Adrianna Papell (found at Nordstrom.com). Luzia then accessorized with Banana Republic jewelry from her own wedding.
I usually don’t style men, but Luzia asked me what Edimar should wear. It wasn’t a traditional American wedding so everyone’s formalwear didn’t have to match a chosen color palette. I suggested what I think every man looks great in – a dark gray or charcoal suit. Paired with a white shirt, black tie, silver tie clip, and white handkerchief, this tailored outfit makes almost every man look put together.
I really enjoyed styling Luzia for Edimar’s wedding. She looked gorgeous and more importantly looks like she felt that way too.
My appointment with Luzia involved dressing her as a bridesmaid for her friends’ wedding. I later took note of what she needed for her fall/winter wardrobe.
Luzia was wearing a beautiful blush pink gown and was looking to accessorize the dress. I encouraged her to wear the jewelry she wore for her wedding a year earlier. We settled on a pair of earrings and a bracelet. I really encouraged her to keep her look simple. Since she’s a bridesmaid, it’s best that she not overshadow the bride with too many accessories. A few sparkly baubles, a great blowout, simple makeup, and a mani-pedi is all she’ll need to compliment her gown and bouquet.
We next “closed out” her spring/summer wardrobe and reviewed her closet for fall/winter. I think it’s important to take note of what items you felt were missing from your current season’s wardrobe as the season is ending. That way you’re not having to remember six months later what items you need to add/replace.
I’m looking forward to shopping for new fall/winter pieces for Luzia’s wardrobe. Hopefully we’ll find some great pieces that will elevate her style.
Tell me…what items are you looking to purchase this fall/winter season?
