Wedding Dresses Under $200 Even Meghan Markle Would Approve Of

Wednesday, August 22, 2018 Simone - Your Style Architect 3 Comments

Whilst Meghan starts her new life as a royal, many of us are still discussing and gathering inspirations from her recent wedding outfit. From hollywood to a royalty, I would imagine the many factors she had to consider picking out her dress. Keeping it simple yet elegant, tasteful yet with a hint of sexiness and va-va-voom!



The slightly off shoulder boat neck style she wore certainly had me starting to look at dresses in that style. And so my first choice of wedding dresses under US$ 200, would be this popular wedding dress off shoulder lace number above. If I had a choice to do it all over again, this would be one of my top picks.




A perfect choice fit for royalty would be the Princess Ballgown. Full tulle skirt, covered 3/4 sleeves and lace galore. This number above speaks for itself of full royalty elegance and a classic dress to walk down the aisle in. Indeed a style Grace Kelly would also approve of.




Now this style is slightly controversial for a princess, but certainly appropriate for the many of us " commoners". Quite similar to Kate Middleton's wedding dress style, the bodice is totally lace with a deep V to accentuate the decolletage. However the long lace sleeves, kept this number in check in terms of classiness and elegance.







A very popular wedding dress style is the Mermaid Style. And before you jump and say " its not for me", look at the several variations above to match any body type and figure.

Again, the main essence in these selections is lace and more lace! I love how simple some of the outfits can be, whilst others have that extra touch of a lower back or subtle neckline. 





I know how tight one's budget can get with a full blown wedding party, hence this beautiful 2-in-1 wedding dress gives you the best of both worlds. Complete with a large church train, this dress takes you down the aisle in style. Capture those lovely shots with this big and beautiful outfit. However when it comes to the dinner party, toss off that removable large train and you got yourself a sexy, slinky evening dress to dance the night away in. A perfect dress which you can recycle as an evening outfit to other black tie events. Most of us cannot do that with our wedding outfits so imagine the mileage you will get with this style.

And so these are my top 5 Wedding Dress Styles, all under the very manageable budget of US$ 200 and certainly styles I am sure Meghan Markle would approve of.

Have fun dress shopping and share with me below which is your favourite wedding dress style above.

Love,
Simone xoxo

Liquorice Candy

Monday, August 13, 2018 Simone - Your Style Architect 2 Comments















When I was putting this outfit together for this blog post - what came to mind immediately was Liquorice candy. The layered colours on my top matched the picture above of liquorice candy and just totally struck me of something sweet, gummy and certainly yummy!

This beautiful satin strapped silk top is perfect for summer, easy to mix and match and I wanted to bring out the pink in the whole outfit. Hence, finding this beautiful shophouse backdrop in the same shade of pink was beyond my delight and it was just a stone's throw away from the school I work at. These beautiful conservation houses -  very reminiscent of my peranakan heritage, was the perfect location shot. I am sure you would have seen similar style backdrops in my previous posts highlighting such conservation houses, which you can check them out here and here.

Kept this look trendy yet simple, a style that can easily take you from day brunches to shopping to evening dinners. A small crossbody bag finished off the look and I must add that this beautiful pair of earrings from Halo Halo Baby rose again to complete the look. You can check out more outfit posts trending this pair of earrings herehere & here.

Enjoy the rest of your week ahead!

Love,
Simone xoxo
