A few months ago my husband and I were invited to a super chic destination wedding in Tulum, Mexico.
The wedding couple are in the fashion industry so I first I thought about wearing something I already owned but after a quick mental debate I realized that wasn't going to work.
I had a vision that I would "blend in" with the ocean and found a dress on google images that was from Alice and Olivia a few years back. It was ombre blues and the silhouette looked right on trend for this season... I was so disappointed I couldn't get my hands on it. I called the store and asked but of course there was no way of finding something so old and they referred me to eBay or something of the like. And so I started my search and quickly found one in my size on Ebay so it must have been my lucky day!
I have never ordered something on eBay but I took the leap of faith and ordered it. It came from Korea about a week later and fit ok however I did do minor tailoring (I mentioned the wedding couple are fashion designers) so getting the dress to fit perfectly (or at least as best I could) was important.
I paired the dress with my Chloe pearl earrings and Diane Von Furstenburg gold and plastic heels.
My hair and makeup were super easy as I traveled the day of wedding and my hair was a little dirty. So I just did a sleek middle part and tucked the front behind my ears securing the hair with blonde colored bobbie pins to hold the look for the entire night (which was full of dancing and tequila). The makeup I did was shimmering and bronze to go along with the beach themed looked. Maybe it was a little mermaid inspired too...!!! Either way it was fun and beachy and the wedding was an overall blast.
Cheers to the happy couple!
