{Life/Style} My Wedding Uniform

June 13, 2012


One of these things is not like the other…






Confession: I am a fashion blogger… and I wear the same dress to nearly every single wedding. It wasn’t intentional, at first. But then my friends kept getting married in the summer and I realized that if I had the perfect dress, why reinvent the wheel?

This past weekend, however, wearing that dress just didn’t feel right. It didn’t feel special enough. Or maybe it didn’t look right because I’ve gained a few pounds. Either way, I’m not sure; I just knew that my trusty standby had faltered and I needed to come up with an alternative – quick! The dress I chose is the opposite of a uniform – I’ve quite possibly never worn it; or if I did, it was several years ago and there is no evidence on the internet. But I’m happy it lasted through several rounds of closet purges, because it was the perfect choice. I have more weddings this fall and next spring, so who knows – maybe this will become my new uniform.

Would YOU wear the same dress to multiple weddings?

First dress – Weston Wear; second dress – Robert Rodriguez (similar); flower – Kate Spade; necklace – vintage; earrings – Love & Luxe; shoes – Roberto Cavalli via Gilt Groupe.

    I wore the same gold strapless dress (way more tasteful than it sounds) to tons of weddings for about two solid years. I got away with it by wearing it to the nuptials of friends from different groups so that no one saw it twice, but I was foiled by Facebook. There are about 50 pictures of me in this – rather fabulous – little gold dress at a bunch of different weddings, so I had to retire it. Now I’m on the hunt for a new uniform of my own.

    P.S. LOVE your shoes.

    I’ve totally done this! I stopped buying new outfits right before the last wedding I went to and started restyling what I already had: http://streats.tumblr.com/post/3433733053/the-wedding-blinger
