This past weekend, we went South for the wedding of one of Ro’s childhood friends. It was a lovely wedding complete with so many gorgeous flowers that I was tempted to break in later and steal them all. This Gracia dress (which normally costs $120+) was a gift from Plato’s Closet for my feature on them for NWAFW :). Love.
what we wore: seersucker suit – bespoke vintage, shoes – asos, bow tie – handmade by my grandma, shirt – banana republic, dress – vintage christian lacroix via cheap thrills, platforms – jeffrey campbell (also wore them on my wedding day!), earrings – vintage from mae’s, cocktail ring – kate spade, clutch – tj maxx
A couple of weeks ago, Ro and I went to New Orleans for the wedding of a friend. I knew it would be a chic affair so the outfit planning began months ago.
On Ro: My mom found this seersucker suit at a thrift store and bought it for one of my brothers. They were not interested so she gave it to Ro. Coincidentally, it fit him beautifully. I learned how to tie a bow tie for the occasion so that he could wear one of my papa’s (my grandma made a bow tie to match every dress).
On me: I found this dress by accident at cheap thrills. Harriet (the proprietor) was showing me a full length leopard fur in the back room and I spied this adorable polka dot number. I asked about it and she said it wasn’t exactly for sale but she’d lend it to me. I tried it on and we both agreed that I had to have it. So, out of the goodness of her heart, she sold it to me.
what I wore: dress – vintage from cheap thrills, heels – bcbg, bag – ann taylor (thrifted)
I wore this on Saturday to an evening wedding. The dress is one of my favorites that I own. It’s a great party dress that can be worn in any season. It does only good things for the figure and the gold threading actually sparkles. I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
Here they are! All my wedding pictures. I honestly can’t believe it was four months ago. It was the most incredible experience, made possible by an incredibly wonderful man and many, many precious friends and relatives. Contact me at prettypayblog@gmail if you have questions about vendors. xo

Personal Rant: Is anyone else just so increasingly and abundantly sick of her? I mean, how many times can they play her freaking wedding? I’ve had to avoid E! for weeks in order to miss seeing her all the freaking time. Does she ever have any personal time when the cameras aren’t around (save the 3 hours (estimate) in the morning when she’s being put together). Seriously, what is so pleasant and fantastic about her and her family that the people of America (neigh, the world!) cannot get enough? I’m really not trying to be hateful. I’m just exasperated with seeing her on all of my favorite gossip sites and EVERYWHERE.
