Black Formal Wedding Guest Dress


Happy Monday, y’all! This week, I’m starting the week off with a bang – with officially the most luxe look I’ve ever worn. Ever.

It’s fitting that I wore this black formal wedding guest dress to my darling (and ever so glamorous and classy) friend’s wedding Saturday night.

Yes, two weddings in two weeks. In the past two weeks, two of my dearest friends have gotten hitched and changed their names. My phone is just as confused as my left foot is numb from my heels.

What I’m Wearing:

Black Formal Wedding Guest Dress: ERIN erin fetherston (via Rent the Runway) / Fur stole: vintage (similar) / Shoes: Michael Kors
Purse: Yves Saint Laurent (similar, similar) / Necklace: vintage (similar, similar)
Earrings: The Pearl Monkey, c/o (similar) / Ring: foreign find (similar)

I’m so glad that I was able to make it to both occasions – they were both such shows of the couples’ love and devotion to one another… but I must admit that I’m already looking forward to a weekend of nothingness this coming weekend. And finally regaining feeling in my left foot (I was so close to having feeling in my foot again… and then this weekend happened). Super exciting times, y’all.

This dress would be perfect for a black tie gala this holiday season. The iridescent lace on the gown is almost greenish in certain lights. So fun! It’s also probably worth mentioning that the dress is cut generously in both the skirt and the bodice – perfect for those with giant hips (hi) and big boobs (greetings, again). I highly recommend renting this dress for any and all upcoming galas, weddings, and black tie holiday parties – it’s ever so perfect!
