Wedding Style + Jason Wu

Happy Tuesday, Bettys! I've got some VPL style for you today from the set of episodes #5 & #6: "Wedding Style" plus "Runway to Strip Mall". 

Episode 5: Wedding Style


Right after I wore this on the show, Best Friend saw it at a boutique in our Brooklyn neighb. However, being a good 5 inches taller than me, it was way too short on her. Thus I should point out for future style reference: I'm 5'4". Make your style choices accordingly.


PRO: I love a dress like this that requires very little jewelry. There's so much going on with the stripes & the colors that you can leave it super simple plus neutral shoes & still have a full outfit.

CON: If you are wanting to add accessories, this many colors means you'd have to match a shade perfectly so you aren't adding too much busyness.

Episode 6: Runway to Strip Mall


Does this outfit look familiar? Why yes, tis from my own closet having been remixed here & here already. 

PRO: The dots on this top are large enough that they really read on camera & in photos. Too small & it just looks a little blurry & not crisp.

CON: This skirt has a lot of pleating & layers, so while I always get compliments on it in person, I'd be cautious if you're wearing this to take photos as it definitely adds weight around your middle simply from it's shape.

Do you have any weddings coming up this summer? What are you wearing? I've got one on Saturday & I'm already itching to get down on the dance floor under the stars here in Brooklyn. I think I'm wearing blue & pearls ...

with grace & gumption, Hilary
