They say white is the color of peace, but there is no peace when it comes to trying to find an outfit for an event or party themed ‘all white’. I remember when planning my best friend’s baby shower, I asked my invited guests to all wear white. Lord, were they unhappy with that decision! I honestly didn’t understand why because my selfish being already had an outfit in mind. I eventually got to fathom their sentiments then, for every invite I got from hence forth had this at the bottom: THEME : ALL WHITE. I just couldn’t do it anymore.
I honestly felt suffocated (I know I sound dramatic, but I did)! Each time an invite came in and the theme was all white instead of crafting a good outfit I found it easier crafting an excuse not to attend until a very close friend (read soul sister)hit me with an invite to her all white themed birthday party.
This one I could not afford to get out off. Reasons being, I missed her wedding because I was stuck somewhere in the Mediterranean Sea (click here and read about me, you’ll understand) and mind you I was a bridesmaid, and to add insult to injury I missed her girl’s first birthday. So for this, I had to deal with this all white theme.
I came home and after an hour of staring at my closet and not getting an outfit, I wondered why it was so hard to find an all white outfit.
The best answer I could give myself was that we over think things!!
White on its own speaks elegance, sophistication, chic, stylish you name it! So why on earth do we struggle with this hullabaloo of ‘let me add a pop of color’.
So here is my advice if you choose to wear white please tone down the shoes, a nude pair of heels, or very soft pink would do. Since I always go for golden accessories when it comes to white, a gold pair of shoe wouldn’t be that bad, but when I say gold I don’t mean all studded bling type of heel. Just simple and elegant.
Trust me it took me less than 5 minutes to pair this up after I discovered the secret of not overdoing that all white outfit!
