For my cousin’s wedding (see previous post), I wore a Chanel inspired dress designed by my sister, Jessi.
I couldn’t bring a smaller clutch or else all my stuff wouldn’t fit. I think this Chanel purse went well with my dress anyway.
This was my last hurrah as a blonde. I loved being blonde but as of now, it’s just too difficult to maintain. I just had to convince my mom (who wanted me to dye my hair dark already since my roots were showing) that the whole look would be ruined if my hair was dark!
Every time I have a formal event to attend to, I ALWAYS have my hair up. (Having my hair down just makes it harder for me to move.) My sister Jessi also has to do it for me every time too; I just don’t trust regular salon stylists because most of the time they’re styling is just too baduy, old fashioned, and stiff. I’m a sucker for the perfectly imperfect up do. I had to curl my hair before my sister teased the crown. I’m sure the upside down french braid is pretty obvious and then she just twirled the ends into a chignon.
My nails were done by Piandre Salon in my village. I love how the effect perfectly captured the night sky. This Chanel lip gloss is what I put on right after applying Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Flying Cloud, a pinkish coral shade.
Since my dress was simple and feminine, I decided to go for the dramatic eye and soft lips. I used the Naked Palette’s Gunmetal and Creep to get that silvery smoky eye and falsies to complete the look!
