I haven’t been to a wedding since my early teens and after been scorned by my mum at the idea of wearing a dress I already had (i’m so not aware of these girl rules!) I decided it was time to head to the shops. My mum agreed to buy me the dress as I am “between jobs” at the moment and strapped for cash, so the dress hunt was on! I had a quick look online to get some idea to what your supposed to wear to these kind of events, then I let the trekking commence! After a full day of shopping with no luck I had a brain wave, I’d seen a dress online weeks earlier but couldn’t justify it, now I had the perfect chance, even if it wasn’t traditional wedding guest wear. So here it is:
So there you have it, I LOVE the dress, plus its defiantly one I would wear again without having to be at a formal occasion and it meant I could keep my own style. I also had to keep in mind my bright pink hair and thought this vintage mint green colour would be perfect. The shoes matched so well and were rather comfortable at the first wedding but hell at the second (don’t ask me why but after 20 mins I was begging for my flats, they cut me rather badly). The purse I had actually owned previously in a darker colour and after a lot of hunting I managed to find it in white (i couldn’t find another white bag that could fit my flats in that wasn’t patent and tacky, plus this fits the vintage feel). Finally the headband, I wanted something that complemented the dress and although I originally wanted a fascinator or something fancy and vintage I was very aware of the fact that the only person I knew at the first wedding would be my other half so I didn’t want to wear anything that would draw too much attention to myself, so I went for something simple. I stumbled across this headband with matching hair bobbles and hair grips for a bargin £1.00 from Tammy Girl, yes it is made for a child but I have a tiny head so whose going to know.
