Actually, I wore this beautiful Self-Portrait blue lace dress for a seaside wedding a few weeks ago. But was I the best-dressed wedding guest at that wedding? Well hard to tell. As there was no wedding at the end. Yes, the bride to be and groom to be got cold feet. Well, not entirely true, because there was no wedding that day.
WHAT TO WEAR TO THE ROMANTIC SEASIDE WEDDING AT THE SUNRISE
A while ago I was invited, as a plus one, to a seaside wedding in Trieste, Italy. But there was no wedding at the end. What a pity, I must say. Even though this was only the first wedding for me, I have never seen more romantic wedding setting before. It was even better than the one you see in those glossy Hollywood movies or find on the Pinterest. Well, maybe the Pinterest photos still win as there are no men in black with the headphones in their ears, asking the wedding guests to hand over their phone. But again, that wedding location and setting looked like a fairy tale.
Imagine castle Miramare by the sunrise, filled with hundreds of light pink roses that were bathing in the morning dew. And that morning smell of the sea carried around in the light breeze. With the serene melody of the cello playing in the back.
And then me walking around in this beautiful Self-Portrait blue lace dress. Surely I would be the best-dressed wedding guest if there would be the wedding. As said, there was no wedding, and we were heading back to Slovenia, Piran, by the noon. Where we shoot these photos.
Wondering why there was no wedding? Letting you know what happened in a bit. But first, the thing you came for seeing in the first place, this beautiful long blue lace dress.

LONG SHEER BLUE LACE DRESS
I know, you are dying for this Self-Portrait blue lace dress. Probably ever since you saw me wearing this gorgeous dress on my Instagram. Omg, don’t say you missed my picnic by the sea in this dress? Well, this is entirely on you. I already told you that you should follow me on Instagram to be the first one to see my new clothes. Not to say anything else, you can find me @veronikalipar.
Now finally back to this gorgeous Self-Portrait blue lace dress that would have made me the best-dressed wedding guest if there was a wedding.
Actually, you already know this dress quite well, even though you don’t follow me on Instagram; still, you were the last to know. Ha seems like I just can’t go over Instagram this time. Last time, ich verspreche. Anyway, you have seen me wearing this gorgeous lace blue dress recently for a day date here.
Remember, I told you this Self-Portrait blue lace dress is the dress you can wear anywhere this season. Be sure to check that post (here) to find out, how to make this blue lace dress appropriate for a date when you don’t actually even know where he is taking you. Yes, I showed you how to wear this beautiful Self-Portrait blue lace dress casually. And also what to do if your boyfriend tells you he is taking you to the opera when you wear this dress casually. A must read, believe me.
Again, this blue dress I was supposed to wear for the wedding at Miramare is from Self-Portrait. And you can shop it here. But hurry up. I mean it. Believe me, you don’t want to see your size gone right when you press purchase button. It happened to me twice with this dress. So in the end, I had to order one size up.
Is the wedding you are going to happening in the morning? Or is it going to rain? Either way, this is the cover-up you were looking for. Even though boleros are trending on Pinterest for weddings this season, a blazer or tweed jacket is a far better choice.
Ps. I just showed you how to wear a short tweed jacket for a wedding in Venice. Yes, there are more wedding outfits on Brunette from Wall Street waiting for you. In fact, I added your favourite #6 Wedding outfits EDIT in my previous blog post. Be sure to check it here. Especially if you can’t see yourself in this gorgeous blue dress. Although I doubt you can’t. Just look how splendid it is.
Oh, almost forgot to mention where to get this white single button blazer (also seen here with a short white wedding dress – yes, in case you missed I pretended to be a bride the other day. Actually went to the city hall). This white blazer is from Juicy Couture, but it looks similar, well if only, to the Balmain blazer (shop here). Then there is also this white blazer from Esprit for only €99.99 (shop here) and another one from Theory that I really like here.
SHEER ON SHEER
Sheer pumps? Bien sûr. Surely you know what I mean. My stunning Gianvito Rossipumps that I wear on repeat this season. Shop them here.
I WOULD BE THE BEST DRESSED WEDDING GUEST IN THIS Self-Portrait BLUE LACE DRESS IF ONLY THERE WERE A WEDDING
Wondering what happened? You are not the only one. I was wondering too. And you know, writing all sorts of runaway bride stories in my head. Although truth to be told, an 8-month pregnant bride would probably the last one to run. Especially after months of planning a wedding like this. Also, the cheating groom plot came up in my mind. Admittedly, that one seemed more probable.
Whatsoever, luckily I was wrong. I found out later there was no such thing going on. The bride, a mommy to be, simply didn’t feel well. So to make sure all this wedding stress doesn’t harm the baby, even more than it already had, they decided to cancel the wedding at the last minute. And postpone it for few months. It seems like I will need another dress for their wedding. Now that everyone has already seen this Self-Portrait blue lace. Luckily, I have 5 other wedding outfits to choose from. Be sure to check them here and help me decide.
