It was a bit gloomy and rainy (aka horrible weather for hair) in DC this past weekend. However, the ceremony was absolutely beautiful and the reception was extremely exhilarating! Not only was there the usual 10 course meal, but there was also a tea ceremony, lion dance, and a photo booth/photo shoot area.
What I Wore
I ended up re-wearing a dress that I had worn for a December wedding, and I wore the blue bracelet again. However, I changed up the outfit by adding a peacock feather pin and switching the dangly earrings (which sadly broke a few weeks after the December wedding) to stud earrings.
I also decided to add a bit of color on my lips! I’m normally a chapstick kind of girl and on special occasions, I’m a lip gloss lady. I decided to jump on the lipstick bandwagon. Apparently, it’s a trend according to the Wall Street Journal.
These were the 3 options that I sent to my cousin via iPhone to get her “approval”.
I ended up wearing the Orange Flip lipstick since it was in between the matted Ruby Woo and the Mauvy Night, in terms of brightness. I also discovered that the Revlon Lip Butter Tutti Fruitti works well for a day look since it is a bit sheer and not as bright.
