The Tiny Heart: Wedding Guest Attire: Lace Dress

Wedding Guest Attire: Lace Dress









 Dress-Nordstroms, Necklace-Eclectic Ornaments, Shoes-Oasap, Clutch-HanMade Things

Yesterday I went to wedding #3 of the year out on Long Island to see my cousin get married. Highlights included: a gorgeous outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour overlooking the Long Island Sound, flavored champagne drinks by People's Pops, and seeing almost my entire family.

The not so good stuff: no soap in the bathroom (despite telling the attendant to replace it), the ceremony taking place on a muddy, grassy incline (all the ladies had trouble walking in their heels), and sitting in traffic on the ride home (took us 3 hours, ack).

I have to give a shout out to the kind folks over at Oasap.com for giving me a credit towards these shoes. They carry everything you can think of from clothing, jewelry and handbags, but to my pleasant surprise, I discovered that they are also a petite shoe resource!  The shoes I'm wearing are a size 4 (many styles also come in a small as a size 3) and are very affordable at only $30.

Since I know you guys love a deal as much as me, first time customers to Oasap.com can get 20% off their order (details on the site) AND every order gets free worldwide shipping!

  13. Wait - your shoes are a size FOUR?!?!? oh. my. goodness. You just made me feel like bigfoot, because i wear a size 8 which is DOUBLE the size of your feet. (and i'm only 5'3") Sadface.

    Anyway, now that I've gotten that out of my system, holy moly you look beautiful! I love the cutout back of your dress and your necklace is just totally amazing.

    The wedding sounded fun except for the muddy non-soap drawbacks :) At least the weather was gorgeous (as it begins to pour while I type this :) And well, traffic coming from Long Island - yeah - that's always a pain, but unfortunately usually expected too.

    I hope you have a lovely day despite the not-so-lovely weather, my dear!

    1. Thanks Kym! I'm so glad it wasn't raining for the wedding yesterday. You're right, there's always traffic out on LI but I still hate it, haha. And yes, I have really tiny feet. It's so hard for me to find shoes!

  14. I love everything about this outfit. That dress is fantastic and the teal accents are unexpected and PERFECT! Don't even get me started on the fabulous side hair-do or this comment will be longer than your post! Haha.

    1. Thanks Beth! Luckily I had the patent leather shoes on...if I had worn leather or suede, I'm sure they would've been ruined.

  19. O! The back of that dress is so fun! Perfect with your necklace. For my sisters wedding, we had to trek down a steep hill to get to the area for bridal party photos- it was NOT COOL- so I totally feel your pain!
