This summer I'm going to 3 weddings, having already been to one this year! I've also got a posh work summer ball. This calls for an outfit SOS. Luckily, I can recycle outfits, as one is the wedding of a friend, the other is my boyfriend's cousin and the final is my sister's wedding. No one is going to the same one apart from me and the Mister. Anyhow, I have bought two dresses, and thought I'd have a go at styling them today. Here's my first attempt...
I saw this dress in Oasis for £60 and it really stood out to me - I thought it would be perfect and a little bit unusual for my sister's wedding. Unfortuneately, my Mum has vetoed it - she has bought a mint green jacket and this dress will clash. The dress looks mint in the photos, but it's actually more of a pea green - I definitely couldn't stand next to my Mum in it! The dress is very 70s styled - with big, flowing sleeves and a short body, nipped in with an integral belt. I'm planning to wear this to my friend's wedding, where my boyfriend is the Best Man.
I think I can be a bit fun and playful with this dress. I'm thinking of styling it with antique-toned gold jewellery, and bright accessories, including my purple patent Mary-Jane's from Office and an orange hand bag from Next. I'm also considering some bright flowers in my hair. I'm not sure about the hand bag - it might be a bit too clashy. There's a yellow one in Oasis that I might get instead.
What do you reckon? It's a bit different for me, and quite bold, but I can see it coming together as an outfit. Let me know if you have any comments or suggestions!
