Wedding Wednesdays: City Soiree

For the second edition of Wedding Wednesdays, we are taking on what could be one of the most expensive looks to pull together of all the wedding types - the black tie affair or as we are calling it here at BBB the "City Soiree."

It's a common misconception that you MUST wear a gown to a wedding that's held in a swanky city locale or is considered black tie. Although its rude to show up not dressed-up enough to an affair so fancy, it doesn't mean you have to invest in a pricey gown you will likely not get another chance to wear again. Our solution? Accessorize a flirty, a-line little black dress, like this chiffon tiered dress from BCBG, with fancy gemstone jewelry and embellished shoes and bag. A dress with a bit of a fuller skirt solves the problem of looking black-tie-enough and the metallic and gemstone jewels give the look a fashionable yet polished pop!
