A Black Tie Wedding

Venice, CA

Happy Friday!  I received countless comments and DMs the other week asking me about the dress I wore to my friend’s wedding in Positano. It was a custom dress that she had made for all of her bridesmaids, but I found an almost identical dress (the one that I’m wearing here!) at Nordstrom for a fraction of the price.  This long, black Vince Camuto dress is even more stunning in person.  The quality is on point, it hugs every curve and drapes in all the right places.  The cut out back detail is so subtle and pretty, and I love that the front part is low, but not too low/overly sexy!  I think it’s always best to air on a more conservative side at a wedding – that way you can really dance, eat, and enjoy yourself without being self conscious.  I paired the dress with my favorite nude strappy sandals and a light gold clutch.  I kept my jewelry simple and let the dress do the talking.  Nordstrom has soooo many amazing Vince Camuto dresses – and black tie dresses in general, whether it be for rehearsal dinners, weddings, or a special event.  I love this one, this one, and this one.  FYI the dress I’m wearing is under $200 and runs true to size (this is a size 2) – I highly recommend snapping it up before it’s gone! x

      Yes it is! And the waist trainer is definitely tight (as to be expected! haha) but it’s not painful and 100% worth it!
