Being Pepperdine alumni, we are both very aware of “Ring by Spring” and know that wedding season is coming up. If you are planning on attending one (like Elissa will be traveling in February to Mexico!), or any other formal events, hope our blog post helps with your outfit inspiration!

 This is the first time featuring formal dresses and we absolutely loved the dresses we chose (we know you were all very anxious to get the details). These are designs from  Pia Gladys , who we met during her September fashion show in Beverly Hills. We had the opportunity to pull dresses from her showroom, and had a very cool experience! We tried on a infinite number of dresses, some of which were red carpet worthy ✨ You will see them in a later post!

 I love all things blush and gold and would have to say this is a great first blog post to kick off the year! I pulled the Odette dress that is available in 40+ colors. It’s not only is forgiving, but luxurious in its lustrous shiny finish. The peekaboo shoulder detail, front slit and belt to cinch the waist is really flattering, I felt like a goddess.

 What we love about the dresses are that they exude elegance in different ways yet are still very comfortable. Keep scrolling for more details on how we each styled our look!

 As you all know, I love white so it’s hard not to love this dress. The detail of the sleeves takes me back to the 1900’s when gloves were worn with dresses. They add an extra touch of elegance, and make the design unforgettable.

 When your man gets you your dream choker 😍 This was my one year gift, and it could not be more perfect.

 What’s better than gold, rose gold! As some of you may have noticed from several of our previous posts, my favorite type of heels are sandals like these. I’m very much the type of girl who believes in “less is more”. But when your design is simple, you can afford to have flashy colors. Metallics have been very popular in the past couple months, so when I spotted these I bought them with absolutely no plans of what I would wear them with...surprisingly, I’ve already used them on several occasions and find them to be a great accent to blush tones.

 This was a gift from my boss from last Christmas. I love how simple and delicate it is! If you are looking for something like this, I’ve linked a similar necklace below.

 I bought these shoes for high school prom… yes it been 7 years since then 😅 It’s geometrical heel is super unique and was the reason I bought them. However I must admit that they aren’t the comfiest shoes... I wear them with a foot cushion, which helps a lot. My favorite brand for foot cushions are  Aldo  because they have ones with a fabric exterior (vs all gel inserts), so they help create friction and not let my foot slip. The link below is to a similar shoe, it doesn't have the same heel design, but it was impossible to find something else...since it’s been 7 years.
