I've been invited to take part in a style challenge by Weddington Way. This month, the San Francisco-based online bridal boutique celebrates Bridal Fashion Week by hosting their October Style Challenge. So what's it about exactly? Weddington Way challenged a handful bloggers to style a complete bridesmaid look using one of their lovely bridesmaid dresses: "If you were the Maid of Honor and the bride asked you to help her style the look for her big day, what would you suggest?"
I wanted my bridesmaid look (pictured above) to be neat, but immediately appealing, so I picked an eye-catching color. What I have chosen was a cocktail length dress by Alfred Sung in an elegant shade of red, which they call 'Barcelona', with clean lines and a feminine silhouette. I thought the color Barcelona would look magnificent with gold accents and a loose updo. I opted for neutral eye makeup and nail art to keep the look as tasteful as possible while the classic red lips gave the ensemble a luxe-looking finish.
