Sooooo I got engaged this summer!! And this is what I wore…there were loads of wardrobe issues along the way. I changed dresses like 5 times. It sucks when you have a big event in your life and you prepare for it for months, then last minute, everything falls apart…This is exactly what happened to me and when I finally found the dress…well it was apparently too dark for a bride.
Anyway I guess I needed to rant a tiny bit…so 1 day before my party, I had to go shopping the streets of Amman, Jordan to find the perfect dress…10 hours later, this was the one. Although I felt a little older and a little fatter in this number, I didn’t care and I had the time of my life.
I ended up doing my hijab in a turban style…which is a total first for me. But the response was quite positive…surprisingly. So it gave me a little boost of confidence.
I had my makeup done by L’Oro Capelli in Jordan with Marina. She’s the owner of the salon and she worked with passion and dedication. Although she struggled with me a little (I couldn’t stop tearing up!), she managed to make me look like a million dollars. Shout out to Marina!!!!
So I paired my dress with a burgundy turban and burgundy/gold shoes. I topped it off with a studded gold H&M earring. Although I was down in the beginning of the day, my fiance made me feel like I was the only girl in the world (yes I stole this from Rihanna).
We danced and danced and danced for 3 hours, we didn’t even sit. We took loads of pictures and we had loads of fun with family and friends. All in all, the event was a success and everyone left happy.
I feel like this post was a little rambley but it doesn’t matter…It makes me happy to just sit here sometimes and virtually blab…
Hope you guys liked my engagement look…
Until next time,
