A couple months ago Greg and I attended his cousin’s wedding in Minneapolis and I got to wear the most amazing outfit. I am in love with every part of this look and each piece was so special.

Let’s start with the dress. I picked this up a week before the wedding at the BCBGMaxazaria store in Chevy Chase. The color, the cut, and the style all scream me. I have always liked red on me, especially this kind of deep red. The cutouts on this dress, the cinched waist and the slits on top and at the bottom, are all beautiful. The details add such a subtle sexiness, but since the occasion was a family wedding, I countered the lacy detailing and the short length with a long black coat that had the most gorgeous gold glitter trim. The coat is my mom’s, and she thought it the perfect addition. She was right! The coat looks incredible with the dress, and really brings out the contrast of red and gold.

Now the shoes. I might possibly have the best boyfriend of all time because he actually got me these Christian Louboutin heels as a birthday present. They’re by far the most perfect heels I own and my one true love. I got to choose the kind of Louboutin I wanted, and of course I picked classic black because they will go with absolutely everything and can be dressed up or down. I am all about multiple wear items. The wedding was the first time I wore them out, and found them to be comfortable enough to dance in all night. Even when I started to feel a pinch, there was no way I was taking them off!

This whole look felt so dreamy, yet classic and put together. It makes me wish I went to more weddings so I could have the opportunity to style more formal wear!
