Frump Town No More!


I may feel anything but dressed up during the week, but I must say, I LOVE getting dressed up when the occasion arises! I’m such a girlie girl at heart.

This morning, I thought I’d give you a peek in my closet and show you what I pulled together to wear to my brother-in-law Steve and future sis-in law Joanne’s wedding today! I’m so excited for their big day!!!!

My father in law Ken, Steve, & Joanne:

With Brother in law Dave…more SHOTS!

The first time I met Joanne I KNEW she was the one for Steve. I even told Eric after we met her that they would get married. What can I say, I can see love a mile away!! I’ve never seen Steve happier. :)

Joanne is going to make a STUNNING bride. I can’t wait to see her! The wedding is held at a winery in Niagara on the Lake. The setting will be breathtaking no doubt.

Here’s the outfit I put together…

I found this dress in the nick of time last night at Le Chateau. It’s pinky and floral- and if you know me, you know I love that! Luckily, it fit me like a glove, which doesn’t happen often at Le Chateau…usually I can’t find anything for the life of me in that store.

The ruching is extremely figure flattering and hugs the curves (or creates some!).

I thought I was going to have to buy new shoes to go with the dress, but my girlfriend Ashley offered to lend me her wedges. I’ve worn stilettos at outdoor weddings before and it ain’t pretty walking on grass! ;) These will also be much more comfortable too.

My gold clutch is from 2008 from Aldo. I think it was $19.99!

My jewelry is from Swarovski which was a gift from Eric last Spring.

Shimmery eye shadow is from Chanel. I bought this set in 2008 for my wedding and I just love the colour palette.

A shimmery wrap if I get chilly outside. This was a gift from my mom last year. Need to iron this!

Painted my nails with this old bottle of Revlon ‘Pure Pearl’ which goes with my dress nicely.

One more coat to go after this.

Ellie@fitforthesoul August 6, 2011

I agree I was going to say the same thing for both gals! ;) I usually find it hard to put something together for a wedding b/c I don’t know if this makes you overdressed, or underdressed, etc., but this dress seems perfect Angela! Especially for such summery weather. :D Have funnnnnnnnn


Kaitlyn (College Girl Runs) August 6, 2011

That dress is beautiful! Have fun at the wedding!


Sana August 6, 2011

I love getting dressed up for weddings!


Julie (A Case of the Runs) August 6, 2011

Lovely eye shadow pallette! Do you keep yours until they run out? I can never seem to reach the end of mine, and then I figure it’s better to replace them, anyway…


Angela (Oh She Glows) August 7, 2011

Yea I tend to keep the *nice* stuff around til its gone…probably shouldnt!


Gina @ Running to the Kitchen August 6, 2011

Can’t wait to see that dress on you in pictures, it’s gorgeous! (hope that doesn’t sound too creepy! haha)

OMG Joanna looks just like Penelope Cruz!


Angela (Oh She Glows) August 7, 2011

Yes she does!


cathy August 6, 2011

have fun, angela! sounds like a gorgeous venue. my cousin’s getting married in NOTL in june 2012 at a winery…would be too funny if it’s the same one!
your outfit sounds beautiful – can’t wait to see photos!
i love that you have accessories and make-up that are a few years old…me, too!


Kate @ Vet in the Saddle August 6, 2011

I LOVE your dress! You’re going to look absolutely gorgeous! And I’m sure the bride will look fine too :)


Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga August 6, 2011

Your whole ensemble looks wonderful, Angela. I love that you borrowed shoes since they are sort of a one-time need anyway and yes, stilettos and grass do NOT mix!

And Chanel eyeshadow. I posted a week or so ago that MAC is wonderful. Except that Chanel is BETTER :) It’s in it’s own price point league but it’s just the best stuff.

Can’t wait to actually see pics of you in that your outfit. The dress is definitely NOT a frumpy number :)
