....and they lived happily ever after!!!

Shopping is easy! I do it ALMOST everyday, and I enjoy my unhealthy habits!
SHOPPING FOR AN OCCASION though, can be extremely tricky, even for the most experienced shopper AKA, ME!
The occasion is not difficult to guess, entails white long dress, a cake with plastic people on it, and a sea of heels & stilettos!
Guessed already?
Yeap, I had a wedding to attend!

Most people just buy a dressy dress and they are off the hook!
For me it was a whole process as most of the times the way I am dressed defines my mood, and the vibes I am sending.
NO, I'm not crazy or anything I just mean it in terms of : sexy, romantic, fierce etc. & don't get me wrong but I can tell a lot by how people are dressed. the point!
I spent many days reading piles of magazines (finding NOTHING), and an exhausting day at the Mall where I literally ruined a pair of shoes, narrowing my options down to 3 dresses!

L to R: See by Chloe, M Missoni, 5226 by C. Kritharioti.
Cute, romantic, nice colours, AND multifunctional (serves skirt duties as well!!!)

So there I was, hours before the wedding, dress and shoes all set, but still obsessing over which clutch fitted perfectly.

Dress & Clutch #1 (Reiss)
Clutch #2 (TOPSHOP)
Clutch #3 (Obvious...*Smiley face*)
I've already introduced you to those babies a post ago...
AND nails done (by me...) rare phenomenon!

Seeing the pictures I realize that the Reiss and hot pink clutch were the best options, yet I ended up with the miu miu one. The camera space won me over, and (I don't deny it) it's hard to ignore something new over relatively "old" stuff.

The looks:
Here I am, all dressed up with two beloved friends (who have no idea about this blog...I think, so the face-over). You may also check my suffering feet, proving me (once more) right on that I am a flat(shoe)-person.
As for the event, remember when you attend those weddings where boredom makes time stop, and you wish you were dipped in a pop-corn bowl watching the silliest movie?
We partied till we dropped (the groom dropped first...)!

...couple was gorgeous, this was the first wedding I didn't actually wanna shoot my brains out, so....may they live happily ever after....!!

  3. beauuuuutiful post...may they live happily ever after!

    loved the step by step completion of the outfit, laughed so much with the pixels over those (lucky) guys faces and.. strange, your new shoes look even better in this light:))

    και στα δικά σου Κατερινάκι;)

  4. Finally GAMO-POST! Ohhhhh you look gorgeous, lovely geitonaki! LOooooooOOOooove the dress AND the shoes AAAAAAAAAAND The BAG!

    You should seriously start thinking to give this dress to me, your old school friend that you never actually met at school! :D Just sayin' !

  5. από τα 3 φορέματα αυτό που διάλεξες είναι μακραν το πιο ωραίο (έχει και κάτι ρετρο). εγώ θα κρατούσα την πρώτη τσάντα πάντως. μου φαίνεται πιο κομψή. όσο για τα παπούτσια είναι πολύ όμορφα και επιπλέον φαίνονται και άνετα. κρίμα αν σε χτύπησαν. γενικά φοβερό σύνολο πολύ διαφορετικό από τα συνηθισμένα για γάμο που βγάζουν μάτι από την κακογουστιά!

  6. I was waiting for this post! You looked gorgeous in your dress, and I truly believe it was the best choice for you. And how amazing is your new bag??? I couldn't leave that baby home either!
    Glad to know there are still people out there who know how to have fun at their wedding.

  7. @Alecca , how many times I heard THAT phrase...thank you alecca kai sta dika sou TOO!!

  8. @Lopi: I knoooooooow, I though wedding + fun couldnt be combined...!! Thanx for the bag, it's a gift, I myself wouldnt be able to afford it...I am broke for the following two months...!!!

  9. Awww, weddings...*goes into daydream* Can be sooo tricky finding an outfit that suits though, as I recently found out. You look fabulous though, that dress is so so cute :)

  11. Το να βρείς τι θα φορέσεις σε ένα γάμο μπορεί να είναι πραγματικό μαρτύριο....δεν μου αρέσει να αγοράζω ρούχα τα οποία πιθανότατα να μην ξαναφορέσω...αλλά αυτό το φόρεμα?!?!?!!?είναι αριστούργημα!!τα χρώματα του κ το σχέδιο του απίστευτα κ είχες κ πολλές επιλογές για τσάντα.

    I really like your blog.

    ♥ Lu

  26. Gorgeous choice! You look amazing!
    And congrats to the bride and groom!


  27. Even before I saw which dress you picked, I was going to say... I hope you picked the Missoni! Great choice... I think unlike the other dresses, this is one you can wear all the time. And I loved your report of the wedding... haha, I'm good at shopping too, but not for an occasion (weddings and themed-parties are the worst). I can also totally relate to boring weddings, so I'm really glad you had such a great time at this one! :)

  28. I want that dress. U look so fantastic...


  29. Fun, cute outfit, I love the first clutch!
