I’m scratching my head over how it’s wedding season in the Valley? It seems we were just in the thick of 100 degree days, now the weather is cooling off and my calendar is booked with weddings yet again! If you’re finding yourself in front of your closet wondering what to wear, yet again, go classic! Not to mention, if you have a holiday party this month, your wedding attire can totally work for a holiday party too.
Classic styles never go out of style. You can take a basic dress, pair it with some nude or black heels and at the end of the day it’s all about how the styling comes together at the end. For this look, I decided to wear a matching Kendra Scott jewelry set from their bridal collection. It has the perfect amount of sparkle and is a very basic yet classic jewelry style that can be worn time and time again. I love how the rose gold is so warm against my skin and perfectly compliments the blush tones in my BCBGeneration dress.
My makeup by Leiah from The Sparkle Bar compliments the classic look that I was going for. The makeup isn’t too heavy, but being a glam girl it gives me what I need in terms of a thicker eyeliner (in a classic wing) and thick eyelashes (that will never go out of style.) Leiah even opted for a timeless light pinkish nude lip.
I have to admit, I was most excited for my hair! I’ve worked with Gossamer Salon so many times, but have never worked with the owner/head stylist Selena. When we discussed the hair styles for this shoot and she told me that she wanted to start with a finger curl look I about fell out of my chair. I have always wanted a finger curl hair style, but I was waiting for the right time. It is a very classic look that transcends time, but it needs to be paired with other classic elements too. So far we had the classic dress, shoes, bolero, jewelry and makeup, so I knew it was the right moment for the hair. The curls tied in the look and elevated it from classic to iconic. At the end of the day, there weren’t any crazy braids or buns, but just simple curls.
