Wedding #2

Otherwise known as Wedding #4 (if counting from the start of the year) - two more weddings to go this year!

This wedding was indeed special though because it was the wedding of my dear blogger and friend Odette. She had been dreading this day for quite some time - she despises being in the spotlight. But that aside, it was a great time for everyone involved, including the bride lol, and she looked absolutely stunning.

I took this opportunity to wear my Etros dress I had purchased a long time ago, and my Jeffrey Campbell Burb shoes.

Actually, that's a lie. I only wore the JC's while getting ready then thought I better wear flats just in case. I had a pair all planned out too, unfortunately the flats that I wanted to wear were broken and I had completely forgot about it. These were the Forever 21 studded sandals that I tried to sell last month and unfortunately had to cancel all order because the buckle broke and I couldn't fix them - and I didn't think $20 shoes were worth sending off to a cobbler.

So I taped the buckle on the shoe with a crapload of Scotch Tape - EEP! Don't think anyone noticed though :P

Dress: Etros; Heels: Jeffrey Campbell "Burbs"; Studded Sandals: Forever 21; Purse: Loefler Randall for Target

PS I won a contest with my fav Classic Rock station for the best Caeser recipe. Well, I'm a finalist, but either way it means I win free drinks, appies and prizes tomorrow at the Rock 101 event at Vancouver's Boathouse restaurant. I'm very excited - I made up my Caeser recipe on a whim and it ended up being selected for the top ten. If I win tomorrow, my drink gets featured on the Boathouse menu AND I win a 4-day houseboating adventure!!

I'm gonna dress the part too - thinking of wearing my new leather jacket and Lynrd Skynard tee-shirt, along with some jeans tucked into red Chloe boots! Hopefully my bad-ass "Classic Rock Radio Outfit" will ensure I win!! Oh, and here's hoping the drink wins them over too.

For those who are wondering (ie ALL you Americans...or actually, anyone outside of Canada) a Caeser is a take on the Bloody Mary and a must for everyone to try - it tastes a MILLION times better than a Bloody Mary too, refreshing and zesty. If you can find Mott's Clamato juice at your grocery store then go for it:

Lusty's Savory Saeser Submission:

1.5 ounces of lemon-flavoured Vodka
5-6 oz. of Clamato Juice
1 teaspoon or Worchestershire Sauce
a dash of Frank's Red Hot Sauce
pickled asparagus spears as garnish
1 tablespoon of pickled asparagus juice from bottle
1/2 teaspoon of anchovy paste
1/2 teaspoon of horseradish
rimmed with Spike seasoning and a lemon

PPS thanks for the kind comments on the Vertigo post. Look for more classic movie or music inspired posts once a week!

Meghan said...

Great dress! And I'm off after work to go make a Lusty's Saesar or two as that recipe sounds great, good luck with the contest!

Sher said...

The dress! Just gorgeous!

Love the dress! I'm a sucker for anything that sparkles.

And couldn't see any tape, although maybe you photographed them to hide it? ;)

Wanderlusting said...

Pink rat - the tape is actually on the flats I am wearing further down, not the shoes in the first few pictures ;)

I want that dress! Are those chains on the front? Love it!

I'll have to try the cesar. Funny story - my friend moved to Seattle and she and her boyf went to Vancouver for a weekend and the bartender suggested a cesar stating it was just like a bloody mary. She didn't know what clamato juice was, but liked the drink. Once the bartender talked to them some more she asked about the clamato juice and freaked out!!! She's a strict vegetarian!!! I don't know why but this tickled me so much!

ps - your outfit for the contest sounds hot!! Good luck!

Eyeliah said...

oh my six weddings in one year? I would run out of dresses! You look great btw!

What a great pair of heels! Love the dress and she was a stunning bride! Shoe story is pretty funny, but I'll be the first to admit that I take me cheap shoes to the cobbler if I love them alot and yes I pray he doesn't notice. Ha Ha.

LOVE your dress!

Ela said...

Love the shoes, I hope they made it home with you :) You all looked beautiful and the bride was stunning.

Oh I hope you win this contest!

And I hear you about Canadian weather. Living in Toronto, I get dressed according to chilly morning then boil by mid-afternoon. Hoping for a mild winter :)

Heather said...

I LOVE that dress! Such a pretty color and silhouette. And those cool shoes are from forever 21?! I must copy! Hope they still have them.

Kristin said...

I'm fairly certain that red Chloe boots will come across as crazy bad ass!!

Wanderlusting said...

Heather - the flats in the one picture are from Forever 21. The cool shoes (nude with studs) are JEffrey Campbell.

Savvy Gal said...
