I was so excited to help celebrate the marriage of my nephew, JR. Such a cute couple, full of anticipation and joy. This great occasion called for a great dress. For this wedding, I saved up one of my faves, my original dress from my son’s wedding (before I decided to go long). The dress I chose to wear is from Teri Jon.
Dress By Teri Jon In Royal Blue
This dress is a royal blue off the shoulder with beaded straps. The material is scuba which is a polyester mixed with lycra or spandex for a form fitted look. Accentuated with an asymmetrical peplum, this dress is stylish and could be worn for Mother of the Groom or Mother of the Bride. Teri Jons specializes in Mother of the Bride/Groom dresses for real women, very stylish. This dress is sold out but you can find Teri Jon’s dresses in Saks Fith Avenue, Lord & Taylor, and Neiman Marcus.
Portrait Collar and Beaded Straps
When I originally bought this dress for my son’s wedding, I intended to remove the beaded straps and just wear it as a portrait collar off the shoulder dress. I am so glad I did not. The additional design element of the beaded straps adds a sense of elegance to the dress. LOVE the portrait collar for a stylish and modern look (no frumpy here!). Even though the dress had straps, you could not wear a regular bra but needed a strapless one. I wore my Wacoal Red Carpet Strapless Bra for this occasion and my Soma Smoothing Shorts in black.
Jewelry For This Dress
Because the neckline for this Teri Jon’s dress is so stylish I did not want to take away from it. I chose to wear my simple everyday diamond necklace and a pair of large stud rhinestone earrings with no bracelet. All the attention is up at my face and neckline which is where I want it to be.
Stuart Weitzman’s Realdeal Platform Sandals
For shoes for this outfit the choice was easy. I chose my Stuart Weitzman Realdeal Platform Sandals in black. This dress screams heels and my Stuart Weitzman shoes have not let me down for comfort. As with all my heels, I used Preheels before I put them on to prevent blisters. For my clutch for the evening, I chose a bag I was given by my grandmother. Actually, several people had similar vintage bags in the same material, it became a conversation piece. The Read deals are sold out but you can find the new version called Newdeals from Amazon in the suede and New deals in patent leather from Bloomingdales.
