white dress

His hello was the end of her endings
Her laughter was their first step down the aisle
His hand would be hers to hold forever
His forever was as simple as her smile
He said, she was what was missing
She said, he instantly knew
She was a question to be answered
And his answer was “I do”

I got up this morning and switched on my TV to watch the royal wedding. I was curious to see Kate’s wedding gown. I love the fact that her elegant dress, the borrowed veil, the vintage tiara, the ravishing bouquet–all were nothing over the top, not too plain, yet just right. In the shower I was daydreaming what would I wear if I were to get married again.

Back to reality, today I wore a white Zara dress. Well I usually plan my weekly outfit, hence still in a Zara theme. I scored this dress a few years ago at a Goodwill in Maryland. It is sheer, embroidered border, sequined and has a bat wing sleeves. The intricate details of the embroidery give a kind of ethnic vibes, which I love. I paired the dress with a recently thrifted soft buttery leather Lachetta Milano handbag. The handbag seemed hardly used, the color is absolutely brilliant, I dont know why someone would give it away. Oh well, it is mine now.


For an evening look (not that I were going anywhere) I graced a Steve Madden clutch, which also found in pristine condition. I was just playing dressed up. A girl can dream, cant she?

One thought on “white dress

  1. Beautiful look and I love the silver clutch with the dress. I haven’t had the opportunity to see much of the wedding but I did see a little footage of the bride. So elegant and beautiful.
