DRESS: Elie Tahari / HEELS: Steve Madden / CLUTCH: Kate Spade

This time last year both my sisters were getting married within a month of each other and we were all busy planning two weddings! Summer is always wedding season and I swear our counter is filled with wedding invites that we unfortunately won’t be able to attend since we are in New York City! I love weddings and it’s always fun to see people get married because it gives you those butterfly feelings from your own wedding and it’s kinda fun to relive it all a bit. Even though I still am embarrassed that I THREW MY BOUQUET INTO A CHANDELIER during the bouquet toss hahaha. I still can’t get over it and I would be okay never reliving that part. But I still get chills thinking about our first dance when we were slow dancing and crying (happy tears) and it was like no one else was in the room.

This dress I wore to The Shallows premiere is a perfect wedding guest dress! I was standing in line at Macy’s to check out with a different BCBG dress and spotted this red one I am wearing out of the corner of my eye and ran to grab it and swapped the other out! I loved it so much. Right now Macy’s is having a “Give a gift, get a gift” campaign where you can shop a couple’s registry and take $20 off your next purchase of $50 or more. Then you can pick up a gift for the bride and groom one of my and then pop in to get yourself a dress. 🙂

Thanks to Macy’s and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post.

  1. So I have to ask your opinion! How do you feel about wearing red to a wedding? I’ve read that it could take away from the bride because it stands out so much, but at the same time, in talking to others they don’t think it’s bad or a new wedding “no-no.” I see you’re recommending it, so I was just curious how you feel about that suggestion?? Do you think red is okay?

  2. I didnt know you guys were married???? Shame on me. Do you have a blog post with wedding pictures? I’d die to see them!????

  3. I love your blog and your videos! They are very inspirational What do you and your husband do for a living? And do you have any advice for young moms that want to travel with 2 babies, money saving tips and how you pick travel locations that are kid friendly? i thought it was imposible to travel that much especially with kids until i came across your videos!!

  4. Absolutley adore this red dress!! And love the red lip xoxox

  5. I love your pics! Can you tell me which camera and lens are you using and which program for tooling? 🙂

  6. I love this! The color, length, and lace details make it so elegant and perfect for a wedding!
    Thanks for sharing!

  7. Did you know that Blake Lively are following you on instagram? That´s sick!!! 😀 😀 😀 xxxxx

  8. I love this dress! It is the perfect dress for any kind of formal occasion. Love love love your blog as well

  9. Not too elegant, not too simple – just right.
    Just the way I like it. Kind’a jolly and approachable.

    Loving it all the way down.

  10. Such a pretty look on you! red really suits you Amber 🙂

  11. Haha i have thrown my bouquet at the ceeling light???? on my Wedding.
    Amber, i need for a wedding a dress or something Which is nursing friendly and looks good with a nursing bra… haha and this Wedding is about 3 weeks about after the birth of my second Child. .. so it should Cover everyting u want to cover 3 weeks After Labour…. ????

  12. I love that dress! Lace is one of my absolute favorites right now.

  13. Beautiful dress Amber! And don’t worry, I did the same thing with my bouquet! I looked behind me to see who caught it & there was my bouquet on the floor, not even close to any of the single ladies ????????

  14. I have those Steve Madden heels in nude and I love the way they look! I’ve always wanted to get the black, but sometimes my feet like to slide forward in open toe heels. Red also looks great on you, I have a hard time getting red lipstick to look good on me

    Also, props to you for being so classy on your blog! Sometimes I read your comments and cannot get over what some people say. So, you go girl!

  15. Such a pretty look, Amber!
    Happy weekend!

  16. What is the name and brand of the red lipstick you have on im obessesed with red lippies thankss

  17. That’s so funny that you threw your boquet into the chandelier because I totally threw mine into the twinkle lights on accident. So embarassing!

  18. What is the point of making up some story about how you “saw a dress out of the corner of your eye” while “in line at Macys”…that’s clearly not true, as you said Macy’s sponsored the post and, obviously, paid for the dress. Nothing wrong with sponsored content, I just wish you would be more transparent and say “Macys sent me this lovely dress” instead of some lie to seem more relatable. Nothing about your life of constant travel and NYC high-rises is relatable to the majority of your readers, and I think we are okay with that.

    1. Maybe Macy’s was allowing her to purchase a dress she wanted so she spotted that one ! There are different ways people get sponsored posts other than being sent something.

  19. Amber, red looks amazing on you! Stunning look!

  20. Hi Amber!!

    I have to say you’re one of my favorite style and hair bloggers I’ve ever come across. I have to ask what video editing, picture editing and camera you use? My boyfriend is big into photography and I’ve shared so many times your looks and he even compliments on the quality you and David produce in your pictures!

    I’d love to know if you have a chance to get back to me! Thanks so much!

  21. Love that dress. You look so beautiful in it. You need some nice red shoes to go with it, but then again, you don’t want the shoes stealing the show, especially with that gorgeous dress. I do have a small comment, and I feel bad even saying it since you are so lovely and I love this blog, but I also loved the halo braid, but felt it was a bit too “piecy” around your face with your bangs. A tighter coif would elevate the look even more. Either way, just beautiful! You guys are living my dream life.

  22. That is too hilarious about your bouquet toss!! The first dance is my favorite part of weddings. It’s so magical. Btw you look stunning in that red dress!

  23. Beautiful dress Amber! Do you have any recommendations (websites, stores, etc). for us mommy-to-be’s? I really don’t like the maternity clothing stores and am having a hard time finding anything good, stylish AND comfy.

  24. Love the dress! My mom has dresses just like those in red and blue 🙂 I love your style so classy!

  25. Love that dress on you lmao. I am trying to imagine your face after realising you threw the bouquet into a chandelier hahaha. Thanks for sharing that story. And I’m also imagining you and David crying while slow dancing at your wedding. SO beautiful.

  26. My mother and aunt choreographed a dance to “All About that Bass” by Meghan Trainor and danced to it with my husband and my face on popsicle sticks held in front of their faces at my wedding. That is something that I would like to forget haha! But those “I can’t believe that happened” moments make your wedding special and give you a funny story to tell.

    You look lovely! Great job getting that bod in shape! That takes a lot of dedication 🙂

  27. Amber this dress is stunning! Macy’s always has great wedding guest dresses. We also have tons of wedding invites on our counter. I’m actually in 3 weddings and we’re invited to 4 others. Yikes! It’s just one of those summers.
