Hello guys and welcome back to my channel if you are new here, I'm renata and I live in new york city, I'm 25 years old.

If you love all things fashion, beauty, lifestyle, new york city, hit that subscribe button.

Today we have a very exciting video because we are going bridesmaid dress shopping today, very excited um, so it is like 4 30 and our appointments at 7 30 and we're gonna grab like dinner before so my bridesmaids are coming in.

One of them is actually here she's behind me.

There's diana she's getting ready, and I've already done my makeup to get ready and everything.

I just need to choose an outfit and yeah we're going to go to la pakora bianca, to grab dinner, where my sister, my mom another one of my bridesmaids everyone's going to meet, and then we're going to go to david's bridal to go pick out dresses.

I think that I wanted like very classic, with a mix of like romantic and whimsical kind of bridesmaid dresses, because, like my venue, I'm gonna put a picture right here is like very like fairy tail castle.

I don't want it to be too princessy, but I want it to be like definitely romantic and the color of the dresses is going to be like this.

Like carolina blue color, which is where me and asher went to school, we went to unc chapel hill go heels, so that's why we chose the color and it's like a color, that's like running throughout the theme of our wedding.

So that's like a little bit of backstory, um and I'll, introduce you guys to all my bridesmaids and yeah.

Let's go okay! So let's pick an outfit, I'm thinking that I should probably do white because it's bridal stuff I feel like this- might be cute.


I think I'm doing that and then maybe I'll pair this light blue underneath because that's the bridesmaid dress color, I'm matching diana's wearing light blue in honor.

Yes of the moment, yes um, but this is like so this jacket is supposed to be a dress but, like I think, it's too short to be a dress, so maybe I'll pair it with like leather pants um.

Where are my leather pants they're somewhere in here? Okay, leather, pants and then some jewelry and I think that's the outfit okay.

So this is too long to be like a blazer vibe.

So not gonna.

Do this, let's figure out something else? Okay, so I went with this white denim jacket instead and I think it's cute and casual, like I'm.

The bystander here this day is all about the girls, I'm not the main character.

Okay, I think I'm gonna pair this outfit with my little light blue nike blazers, because it's like really matches okay, so I'm dressed shoes are on outfit little purse.

I might throw in a hat because my ears get cold um and here's diana's little fit she's.

Give us a little fit check.

What are you wearing h m jacket, rent the runway, woohoo? We love right.

There, jacket, um bodysuit, I think from h, m panzer, levi's and shoes are docks, love, it love it micro.

My yellow crocs are in the corner um, and this is one of my bridesmaids diana pena um.

How did we meet when did we meet in middle school or something way back? When do you remember? I don't? I don't remember either.

I think it was like science camp or something I have a feeling.

It was science camp because we were both really nerdy but nerdy and hot still.

Yes, yeah, but we've been friends since when was middle school like 2010., I can't think that, yes, it's like 2010, because we graduated in 2015.

yeah, so some so it had to be like yeah five years before that yeah, sometimes four years, five years so long time over a decade over here.

So we just wrapped up dinner and now we are walking to the david's bridal store.

Everyone is walking this way and yeah.

So let me introduce you guys to the bridesmaids hi guys, I'm chelsea, I'm renata's sister and her maid of honor.

What's your favorite thing about me, you're taking a long time I love for no, I love that we're not as creative wow, okay.

So here's the next bridesmaid hi, I'm raelyn, I'm a maid of honor number, two little sister, hello.

What's your favorite thing about me, um, your energy! Thank you.

Now we have my other bridesmaid hi, I'm yadira, I'm also bridesmaid um.

I am the person who has known renata's second longest only after chelsea um.

My favorite thing about renata is how supportive she has always been yay.

Oh, this is my kindergarten.

Bestie miss claudia hi, everyone, I'm claudia, I'm bestie number two.

I joined the circle in middle school.

My favorite thing about renata, probably the way she reacts when she freaks out and it's funny, but not in a bad way, but it's like you can't help, but laugh and you're, like oh, my gosh and the way she runs.

I don't know wait in the vlog.

You had an instagram and you guys met diana earlier, but she didn't say her favorite thing about me.

Oh my god.

I love that runs like such a mom she's like another.

Oh yes, I'm so wholesome everyone, I'm with my mom, and we are just waiting for the girls to come out with some dresses.

Um yeah we're excited to see all the beautiful styles.

So this is the first dress for chelsea.

It is actually a prom dress, but it is the same exact color of like what we're thinking of for the bridesmaid dress and I actually kind of love it.

I don't I feel like do.

Bridesmaids have cutouts, I feel like I.

If it's such a baby, though it's such a baby cutout, I feel like it's totally fine and it looks really good on her, like I feel like this is like such like a chic dress, and I really like it a lot um, it's giving kind of bridge or tin.

It is and then claudia's wearing the office shoulder.

I love it.

She's dance testing, I'm like so we're a little also torn between the dusty blue and the icy blue, but I think I'm kind of like liking, the icy blue.

A little bit more go heels, go heels, go to our hills, but I'm loving the one shoulder um.

They can clip the back.

If you need it um, oh, that's so cute it is cute around your collar.

I do yeah, I really like I'm telling you.

I call it work.

Okay, so I'm loving this one on raylen.

I just feel like it's a little mature for her, since you know 17.

um, let's see about your wedding 18, am I winning um, but everyone else.

Looking the icy blue is definitely the color I feel like yeah.

It looks good on everyone diana's also blue she's, in the dusty blue, but the one shoulder seems to be a hit: hmm yeah yeah! That's it's that one! Okay, that's some of the shoes around yeah yeah! Okay, like I need to make sure I can just like run through the past, the hanger okay.

What do you think of this friend? It's simple yeah yeah, I kind of like it she's simple, but I feel like mixed in with some of these louder dresses.

It could help to balance it out, and I also think this.

This off-the-shoulder look is a little bit more age-appropriate for raylen yeah yeah in this beautiful double strap, satin dress and it looks so good.

Look at come closer, so they can see the waist look at the detailing along her waist.

It really snatches the middle, so she's simple, she's cute.

I like her, I think, she's.

I think she's adorable like a button.

Okay, I feel like this is kind of kind of like the one, the vibe, the two we're kind of loving this one.

How do you guys feel? Are we saying we did you guys found the one? I think we're saying? Yes? Yes, we are officially going with this satin style.

It will be in the dusty blue color, which I kind of want to grab.

So this satin material is going to be the actual color of this, and so this is what it looks like against raylen's skin.

Oh I'm like moving my arm, and so this is the dress.

How cute this was.

Definitely the fan favorite.
