She wants to be your bride, are you gonna do it?

Yesterday we went to a wedding of some friends that B knows from photography and from playing D&D. On Friday, I went out and bought two new dresses to wear at the ceremony and the reception. At the last minute, I decided to wear neither because I wanted to wear this new piece of body jewellery that B bought for a steampunk photo shoot.

I saw this a few months ago at the Atlantic Fashion Week's Emerging Designers showcase. It's by a Prince Edward Island designer called Overman.

These photos were taken after the ceremony and before the reception. The ceremony was outside and it was hot and humid so I'm looking quite droopy.

Also, B took this photo and didn't say "smile" so I'm looking like I'm going to smash the camera.

Dress: anthropologie (last worn here)
Vest: Overman
Shoes: Fluevog Wonders | Ayers (last worn here

I'm amazed at how slimming this dress is. I'm so glad I bought it when I did.

These shoes were perfect for wearing to a wedding. I was comfortable all night and got no blisters.

I didn't do much dancing since the "DJ" played a lot of crap (my opinion which doesn't mean much) and only played 1/2 of Duran Duran's Rio.

I did drink a lot so today has been a bit of a write off. I slept until 1:30 - bliss!

Here's the back of the vest. I have to say this made me feel pretty fabulous. I highly recommend Overman's jewellery.

Apparently I need a haircut too. =)


  1. Oh wow, what a wonderful dress and... Umm, I don't know what to call your body jewellery, other than the phrase you used, but that's too ordinary a term for such a fabulous piece. I think you should make up a new name for it. No pressure.
    I am glad you got tipsy and didn't get blisters from a quick shimmy to half of Rio.
    Power Station? Megan, you spoil us! Feel the heat... xxxx

  2. I've loved that Anthro dress and now I love it more, with your fab jewelry draped on it. And I heart Robert Palmer so much, gotta go listen to some tunes.

  3. Aah, the body jewelry is so so cool. Glad you decided to stick with the dress. Nothing like a weekend of relaxing and sleeping in though. Sorry about the sucky DJ. The only wedding I've ever been to was my own, so I've somehow managed to avoid dancing to anything but my own tunes.

  4. Megan, that dress and body jewelry is stunning on you!

    Nothing better than comfortable shoes and feeling fabulous - take that, humid heat and crappy DJ!

  5. That dress is a stunner and the jewelry adds some edge, perfec! :)

  6. That dress is amazing! Looks fantastic on you! Too bad about the DJ. I've been to many a wedding like that!

  7. Your wedding guest outfit was worth the (time-difference) wait! I love how the interlocking stripes make my eyes slightly googly looking at it. Glad your shoes held up too.

  8. You look awesome in this outfit - that chain vest is STUNNING! I took a look at the Overman site and I might have to get some stuff from there!

  9. The body jewelry is so cool!! and the anthro dress with the fluevogs xxx Peter
