My other bestfriend is getting hitched this December. And what better way to celebrate the holidays than to have a red and white theme wedding. Well, it was always a tradition in the family to wear red/white for their weddings. I was told that hubby and I are going to be candle lighters, just like the rest of my friends' weddings this year. Three of my friends got hitched this year. So, I guess 28 is their ideal age to get married. Unlike me who started earlier than the rest.^_^ The thing is, I was so sure that I'm going to buy a red dress for the wedding. But Emma, the bride-to-be frantically texted me that we're supposed to wear white. Oh-kay, I thought, that's an unusual color for the bridal entourage. I wore pink and purple in my other 2 bestfriends' wedding. Being in a little city where there are only a few shops, I didn't hesitate to look elsewhere than risk having someone else wear the same clothes as mine. So I went online. I looked for classic pieces because I never liked too much frills in my dresses. Ok I'm boring and all but that's another story. Being an all-time E-bay shopper, I was surprised that this time they ran out of cute dresses that caught my fancy. Most of them are too summery and definitely not great for weddings. I went outside of Ebay and these are my finds:
As we all know, white is boring as is. Because red is another wedding motiff, I decided to play it up with red shoes and a red belt. And perhaps minimal accessories not to overdo it. I've read that bib necklaces are the perfect match for the little white dress especially those shift dresses. But I'm not a fan of huge necklaces. I was never adventurous with necklaces being stuck with silver and gold all my life. Snore-worthy, I know! Perhaps I'll just imitate Salma Hayek below, necklace-free and only clad with earrings.

My favorite online shopping website at the moment is ZALORA. Because unlike most Facebook and Multiply shops, the choices are varied and shipping is free once you purchase at least 1,000 pesos. But mind you, even if you only purchased below a thousand pesos, shipping fee is only 100 p. That's enough to pump up my shopping adrenalin. The website is also easy to maneuver and any internet-challenged individual can go places around the website. So for the shoes, belt and other accessories which are supposed to be red, I decided to just look for them all in Zalora. It has to be red. And with that, I found lots.

Now for the budget, I hate to be too tight so I guess I can let loose for a bit on my shopping. I'm not purchasing them all, just some yet I love looking at them for comparison. I'm excited for the wedding which is only days away. Will keep you posted. Kisses. Mwwwaah!
