Dressed in all white

   This weekend I visited my Great-Grandmother for her 80th birthday celebration. It was an elegant all white affair she had been preparing for for months, held in a large hall of her local church filled with friends and family members. Beautiful Black folks in all white. Originally I had a short white lace high-neck lose fitting dress that I wasn't too fond of, I brought that along with another little white dress from Forever21 that was alright. Upon arrival I still was not the most confident in my outfit for the celebration. The next day my great grandmother showed me a long flowy sheer dress her daughter originally had to wear for the event but was too small. It was great on me and only needed to be taken in at the sides. It was miraculous. A few weeks before the trip my great grandmother gave me a call and asked that I wear a head wrap the way that I have styled them before, and it had to be white. So I bought a yard of white satin fabric for only $3. This look came together effortlessly, to finish it off the jewelry is her own and I bought the shoes last minute from Payless.
