A Ray of Style #12

Midnight Sparkle 
Outfit Post by Raysa

My cousin Raysa and I recently attended a close family wedding, and I thought to would be the perfect opportunity to do an outfit post. But as luck would have it, All our cameras completely gave up on us. And I don't think the professional wedding photographer would have been too thrilled nor interested in snapping our little photo shoot. Thankfully, her iPhone came to the rescue - hence the slight blurriness of the pictures, but she looked exquisite nonetheless. Most of the weddings we attend usually call for formal black tie attire. Ray wears a midnight blue sequined column gown with cap sleeves, which she had custom made.











She Wears:

 *A midnight blue fully sequined evening gown made by a local South African designer.
*Beaded gold and navy necklace - Accessorize
*Teal and gold crystal embellished bag - Accessorize
*Teal suede heels - Woolworths department store


*Special Thanks to Raysa for partaking in this outfit post.
