What to Wear to a Winter Wedding
The days are still growing shorter and the nights longer. In retaliation, we light candles and string up Christmas lights to keep the darkness at bay. This is the time of year that brings to mind Wendell Berry’s poem “To Know The Dark.” The first two lines read: To go in the dark with a light is to know the light. To know the dark, go dark. Often when we search for clothing for the holiday season we are looking to color to cheer us and help shepherd us towards the spring. However, sometimes we can find peace in accepting this darker time of year without it bringing us down. Sometimes the color black is the most serene and empowered choice that we can make in December.
This black lace gown is a perfect pick for a black tie event, a special night out at the theater, or a formal winter wedding. You will strike a chord of drama without being too dramatic. Rather, you will stand out as classic and feminine with a hint of vintage Dior. The slim fit through the hips is amazingly flattering on multiple body types. This dress certainly does not run skimp on lace and grosgrain ribbon and has truly earned the title of gown.
Black Tie Wedding
It can be difficult to know what to wear to a wedding, any wedding, much less a black tie wedding. Often it is hard to find a gown conservative enough without being too conservative. The high neckline of this black lace dress helps set a formal tone while at the same time heightening the elegant effect that the deep scooped back creates. When a design comes along that celebrates the shoulder blades and spine deserves to be recognized.
The Extasia necklace completes our winter formal look. The Extasia line will be at home in every Minx’s jewelry box. This necklace is actually carved out of certified fossil ivory from ancient mammoth deposits: what? How is that possible? Who would know how to procure such fantasies? Extasia does and they have made a name for themselves by creating brilliant designs along this highly imaginative vein. This exquisite line blends classic jewelry design with current fashion trends and sets itself apart with its expert attention to craftsmanship.
Finally, we have rounded out our ensemble with a faux fur scarf for warmth and a luxurious nod towards the vixens of the silver screen.
Also, if you have started wondering what to wear on New Years Eve, one would look quite natural sipping champagne while wearing this black lace gown!
