What to Wear to the Clinton Wedding.

I was surfing around the other day and found this article where a woman fantasized about what she'd wear if she had been invited to Chelsea Clinton's wedding. I think the idea is cool. I don't care much for the Clintons, but I do love weddings to a sick degree. I won't even tell you have many episodes of Say Yes to the Dress lurk in my DVR lineup.

Obviously I cannot afford designer clothes, and obviously I don't know the nuances of proper attire at large state functions (you go simple and elegant, I'd assume?). I also imagine the fashion scene is relatively competitive, all the clothes being this season (or true vintage) designer. But this is a fantasy, right? Of course right.

I'd start with a great dress. And duh, it would have to be Zac Posen.

Option 1:

This would be great if the dress is truly blue in real life. The picture makes it seem somewhat white, which is of course a no-no for a wedding. I was recently at one where a guest wore a satin white dress. Disaster.

In both cases I used Zooey Deschanel as a hair model because she is perfect, and also because I am currently rocking the short/thin hair version of her look.

I realize the wedding is over (it wasn't when I started drafting this post last week, but I helped my sister move to college and got a wee bit distracted)... but what would you have worn?

  4. I really adore the first outfit. I could totally imagine you rocking that look. It's perfect for you!

    Oh lordy, I haven't been to a wedding in so long. At least not a wedding where I got to wear my own outfit. Bridesmaid dresses are the worst. Ugh. But if I were a guest at a fancy schmancy wedding, I would try to be creative like you. :)

  5. What an interesting idea!
    I would probably wear a nice pale/pastel shade of sheath dress, definitely with a chic little bolero jacket to cover my upper arms. I would wear this with nice pair of pumps not peep-toes shoes, I think they are too informal for a wedding. Topped with Pearls or my sworovski accessories and an amazing little clutch :)

    please visit my blog and vote on my new header!

  6. Both looks are so adorable, but I'm a sucker for bows so I'd probably go with the first look. BUT I love the colour palettes for both, so you can't really go wrong with either idea!

    And Zooey really IS perfect.


    Thanks so much for stopping by!

  9. That's great information. Now a days kundan bridal jewelry is in trend. Few days back I purchased one complete bridal set from the site www.kaneesha.com. I was astonished to see the fine quality of the set. I will say it's worth visiting site if you are looking for an exclusive bridal jewelry.
