One of my closest friends from college (we met freshman year of college when we lived on the same floor in our dorm!) got married this weekend in New Orleans. Originally I was planning to wear black, but I was later convinced that a town as fun as NOLA deserves bright happy colors. I picked up this Theia gown at a recent sample sale, and it was perfect for this occasion! I love the rich colors and thick fabric. The classic silhouette makes me feel like a southern belle! I also love the scoop back. I paired this gown with my favorite black t-strap glittery pumps. I usually wear these in the winter during the holidays, but I liked the texture-play against the rich fabric. Plus, I didn’t have a pedicure, so I needed a closed-toe shoe! I lalso love that these heels show some sexy toe cleavage! The dress and heels have a lot going on, so I didn’t wear any jewelry except for my diamond studs.
