    A Belle in France

    Or: How to attend a black tie wedding

    Black tie weddings can be difficult to navigate in terms of attire, so

    its best to go with the classic rules of wedding etiquette when

    choosing what to wear. The term 'black tie' can be applied for

    weddings taking place from 6pm onward, and the standard attire for

    a woman is a floor-length gown - even if there is still plenty of

    daylight. An exception to this might be an extremely formal tea-

    length dress covered in sequins or beads, but I would always err on

    the side of a gown.

    A recent trip to France culminated in a black-tie wedding at a

    chateau outside of Paris. - it was an amazing experience! I wore this

    most beautiful red dress by Nicole Bakti that totally fulfilled my all

    my wildest dreams of old Hollywood glamour. For this occasion I

    chose to complete the look with simple silver stilettos, vintage

    rhinestone earrings, red lips and side-swept curls.

    Next time I wear it - that's right, I will definitely get a second wear

    out of this beauty - I imagine going with a very dark smokey eye,

    nude lips, and deep jewel-toned accessories in either emerald or

    lapis. Nude platform pumps would be perfect to complete that look

    and maybe a sleek, flat-ironed low ponytail, too. I can't wait!

    Finding the perfect dress for this wedding could've been really

    difficult. I started wanting something red and with a bit of coverage

    for my upper arms (I'm a bit insecure about them). I quickly found a

    few options, added them to my favorites and then narrowed them

    down from there. Quite simple and fun, really!

    I only hope I find more fancy friends who have black tie weddings so I can start

    shopping for my next gown!
