Wonderful Wedding Weekend

This weekend just gone I went to a family wedding which I was tweeting about for those that follow me (@nash_amber) I was just really excited about my outfit, my hair, seeing family, taking photos and of course the beautiful weather! 

The whole wedding was so lovely. Congratulations to the lovely couple. Love you both!

FYI, at Congolese weddings, especially if you are family we tend to wear a different outfit from the church ceremony and the reception.The bride doesn't even tend to change but the close guests do... so of course I was FULLY involved.

The words I had in mind for my outfits on this occasion:
Elegant, Classic and Sophisticated   

I don't tend to go for the latest fashion trends as I don't like the fact that the 'latest' thing, quickly changes and it's not practical to remain updated with every move. So I just purchase things that I like and I think will suit me, now and also like a couple years from now. 

A look that I really like at the moment  for occasions such as weddings and balls is the Grecian look.
I really think I will still be more than happy to wear things like this, even years from now.


So elegant and simple yet when worn well, its saying a lot of things!
~Outfit Number 1~


I really love this dress, the material is lovely. I even think it makes me look taller (lol), which is not a bad thing at all. The dress is light grey, and has an embellished shoulder strap and waistline. This is the same dress I wore to the wedding I mentioned in my previous blog post Glorious Hair.


A few months ago, there was no way I would 'repeat' an outfit soon after wearing it, especially if I had taken photos in that outfit...but I have come to realise that, it doesn't actually matter. The important factor is not what people think or what they will say about me but more about how I feel about what I am wearing.... and I love this dress so it had to make a quick come back, lol. Also I wanted to show you the dress properly as I didn't get a chance to take loads of photos last time. 

~The Hair~
Yes, I love photos. hehe
This hair was done by one of my aunties who is super talented when it comes to all back styles. The design on the side was done using one pack of Xpressions (£1.99). There are ALOT of pins holding the twists in place. I sure am going to have fun taken  this out. 

Just added the flowers for the day time as it complemented the rest of the outfit.
~Outfit number 2~
I have a thing for feathers at the moment. Its real cute.
In the evening I wore this beautiful maxi dress. I don't even think the photos are doing it justice. It's soft silk material and has draped bits all around. 

When I tried out the outfit at home and knowing my hair was going to be up, I didn't feel comfortable having so much of my back out and exposed ( felt a bit naked) so I wanted to wear something that wouldn't dress down the dress, yet still give me coverage. I was even tweeting about looking for something to put over and I was soo happy when I found this capelet. :D

The word that comes to mind for me, when I look at these photos is: Royalty!
(ah, that rhymed and I didn't even mean to... :D)

Thanks for reading!

PS: I Love weddings...woooohoooo....outfits!!!!

    1. Tu Chân Liên Minh có một quyển trục nghe đồn là sau khi tiên giới sụp đổ từ trên trời giáng xuống, tỏa ra một tia khí tức của viễn cổ tiên vực. Lúc lão phu rời đi thì Tu Chân Liên Minh vẫn chưa ai có thể mở được nó.
      Nhưng nghe nói trong quyển trục nọ có ghi lại nguyên nhân bí ẩn chính thức khiến tiên giới sụp đổ! Hết thảy mọi chuyện đềuđồng tâm

      có liên quan tới kinh biến lớn lao của ngươi năm đó. Dù sao thì những chuyện này cũng quá trùng hợp rồi! Chỉ sau khi ngươi giết hại tiên nhân không quá trăm năm thì tiên giới liền sụp đổ! Nếu nói chuyện này không có quan hệ gì thì lão phu tuyệt đối không tin!
      Thanh Thủy, chúng ta không phải là địch nhân! Nếu như những lý do này vẫn không thể khiến ngươi đồng ý thì đành vậy, đánh thôi. Lão phu cũng sẽ không nương tay nữa, khiến toàn bộ uy lực của pháp bảo tiên trận này hoàn toàn phát ra vậy! .

      Sát khí trong mắt Viêm Lôi Tử loé lên, bốn mươi chín mảnh đại lục bên ngoài thân thể đột nhiên dừng lại, không xoay tròn nữa nhưng lập tức có một cỗ khí tức cực kỳ đáng sợ điên cuồng trào ra.

      Ánh mắt Thanh Thủy lạnh như băng nhìn Viêm Lôi Tử, trong mắt hồng mang lấp lánh. Một tia khí âm hàn chậm rãi tràn ngập bốn phía. Trong lòng Viêm Lôi Tử âm trầm hẳn, thầm than một tiếng. Hắn đã cố hết sức rồi. Thời gian mấy vạn năm hắn đã tra cứu điển
