Frump Town No More!

83 comments

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:

My bday celebraton 2009 (remember those pink walls??)!

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.

IMG_9625

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

IMG_9628

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

One more coat to go after this.

Now I‘m off to try and pack LIGHTLY. This would be a first…

See you tomorrow for a wedding recap. Red heart Have a great day!

25 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

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…

46 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 :)

I have the exact opposite problem with Le Chateau.. I’ll wander in randomly and fall in love with multiple dresses. I never let myself try them on though because I have nowhere to wear their pretty dresses and I am so cheap that I can’t justify spending $150-200 on a dress I might wear once. You’re dress is really pretty though! Can’t wait to see it on!

The clothes at Le Chateau never fit me well either – they’re all made for tall people LOL! But I love your dress. Great find! :)

You are going to look incredible! Love the gold accents. Wedges are a also great idea. I have spiky heels as my wedding standard, but that’s a good idea to change them up.

Hi Angela, this is totally not the type of post an 18 year old guy would usually be drawn to but I wanted to comment to say that I wish your brother-in-law and future sister-in-law all the success in their journey together. Mainly I wanted to say that I am very happy to see that you have had been able to leave ‘frump town’ you are such a source of happiness and inspiration to so many people every day just through your blog. Each time you post I feel like I escape my own Frump Town for a while because of your enthusiasm and natural joy. I hope you enjoy the wedding, thank you very much Angela.

I loved your dress yesterday Angela. You looked stunning, as usual. Eric said you were going out at the last minute dress shopping. You certainly picked a winner with this one. I thought the couple looked amazing. Stephen and Joanne were sooooooo happy. It is wonderful to see them so in love with each other. I am also so looking forward to seeing the recap of all your photos posted on your site. Now I have three beautiful daughter-in-laws and love all of them. After growing up with only brothers, and so many of them, it is so nice to have three daughters to now call my own. Also waiting to see photos of my lovely granddaugter and grandson.
Your loving mother-in-law….MILMOM

My cousin just got married in NOTL and also wore a dress from Le Chateau- I love yours. Le Chateau always have the prettiest dresses – but, you’re right. It’s hard to find one that fits well and is reasonably priced. Can’t wait to see the wedding recap – I’m from the Niagara region and NOTL is such a great place for weddings!
