Red letter day

by cecylia on October 19, 2012

This is what I wore to the wedding I mentioned in this post where the bride and groom met at the Races. It was another half-Asian wedding, so once again I opted for red. Comfort is my most important factor, so naturally I donned a sweater to not freeze, then added a ruffled skirt where many years ago I’d worn as a strapless dress. Tatra in the Dandenongs is such a breathtaking place for weddings, especially when it rains. The moisture further nourished the blossoms, whose pretty petals greeted the bride and groom and each guest with their brilliance.

这身红装是上星期我去一对朋友的婚礼穿的。这婚礼又是一半东方的,因此我再一次穿了大红色。对我来说,服装必须舒服。那天很冷所以我穿了毛衣,然后加了一条红裙(几年前我曾将它当连衣裙穿)。Dandenongs的 Tatra是个结婚的好地点,下雨天它更美。雨水滋润了五颜六色的花朵,使它们用更艳丽的花片来迎接这对新人。

Bet you never thought you could wear a sweater to a wedding! Hope this provides you with some inspiration for your next outfit. Have a gorgeous weekend lovely! I’m off to another wedding and the Caulfield Cup! See you on Monday!

Dear Cecylia, you look so chic: this outfit and its vibrant shade suit you so well! Thanks for the inspiration! I also like mixing fabrics, and having a more ‘informal’ piece over a structured and elegant skirt/trousers is a great way to create an original styling. Hope you are enjoying a great w-e!
