Golden Oldies

A couple weekends ago I went to Miami for a high school friend's wedding. The invitation said formal attire, but I was in no mood to wear a dress. Also, I knew that a lot of people I hung out with back when I was 17 would be in attendance, so I didn't think not wearing something super formal would be an issue. So since I decided not to wear a dress -- or a skirt for that matter -- I opted for leggings.

I was reminded about a beautiful top that blogger babe Kali wore during NYFW. When I had dinner with her and a few other bloggers while in New York, I told her how much I loved that top. So I searched for it online and found it on good ol' Shopbop! The only size available was a size 2. Listen guys, I'm not a size 2. But I bought it anyway because I had to have it and thought there might have been a possibility that it would fit. Needless to say, it didn't fit, so I returned it. But I kept checking the site in hopes that a bigger size would emerge. Then a few days before we left for Miami, a size 6 became available. I'm typically a size 4, but I knew I could work with a 6. Obviously, I bought it and it arrived in time (Shopbop has amazing shipping) and, most importantly, it fit just fine!

So I wore the gold top with these leggings. I haven't worn these leggings since 2012 -- back when I was sitting in trees. They're from the Versace for H&M collection. Honestly, I didn't even think I'd ever wear them again, but they were in good condition and still fit, surprisingly. I brought these leggings out of the Muse fashion vault as I knew they would go so well with the gold top. And the black bra is part of the top's design. The front tie is just for decoration and it comes with a side zip. As of right now, there's a size 8 available so go shop it before it's too late!

These leggings are obviously long sold out, but I really like this version and this less expensive star version as well. If you want to go all out, these are haute! Also, I actually wore a different pair of shoes for the wedding than I'm wearing in these photos. I haven't worn these Shoedazzle Valentino rockstud dupes since 2015!

And yes, I was satisfied with this less formal look for a wedding. Made it a lot easier to move on the dance floor. I also find it hilarious that my hair matches my entire outfit, lol.
