This past Saturday night, I went to a formal fall wedding. When I first heard the wedding was formal, I panicked a little – Where on earth will I find a last-minute petite formal dress? I wondered. At 5’2″, it can be a challenge! But alas, I found the perfect one at ASOS (above). See the regular size here and tall size here.
Although the exact pair of heels that I wore is no longer available, see this very similar pair for narrow to average feet or this one for wider feet. I wear these shoes for pretty much any wedding or event in any season! They are simple and flattering, and I always get compliments on them.
As for the other components of my look, Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara is my make-up must for big black lashes. My Acure Lip Lush is no longer available, but check out this similar shade from Sephora (on sale for $5!) – perfect for fall and for this dress. I originally got my rollerball glitter fragrance oil from Anthropologie, and they have so many pretty options!
I curled my hair with my Hot Tools curling iron (which I have had since high school if you can believe it). I held my curls with OGX Honey Hold – I am addicted because it is super strong and smells amazing. If you have fine hair like me, I highly recommend this hairspray!
I prefer more relaxed curls, so I always curl every piece, spray, and then comb through my hair completely with my fingers so that it falls more naturally and does not feel stiff.
Et voilà: my lobster and me at the wedding. The whole evening, I felt both elegant and comfortable (the dress falls easily and is not fussy) – such a win-win. I have gathered more wedding guest dress inspiration so that you can feel just as good at your own fancy shindig this fall:
Happy dressing up!
