What to wear to a wedding?
So, you're at work and on your second cup of tea......welcome into my dreamy wedding world. This is my situation.... I have been invited to a wedding and although I have no idea what to wear, I know I wouldn't make a satorical choice. For a woman with standards, choosing a dress for a wedding, is a serious task. It's almost like buying a house.You have your preference list intact in your head.... fire places, bay windows, schools and it goes on and on. When you finally find "IT" you are willing to exceed your budget. This is what dress hunting means to most women and if like me you have earned the status of yummy mummy you owe it to your children and the rest of your fellow cohorts to show the world, childbirth has got nothing on you! Like the house hunting analogy above, such pressure and fashion obligation has a tendency to be quite taxing on the budget. That's where the secret hiding place in the home comes in!
Well, I need two gorgeous dresses this summer. The first for a for friend's wedding in Portugal and second - a bridesmaid dress. So let the hunting commence.
First stop, Coco Celine one of my favourite fashion forward bloggers. Her coverage on Olivia Palermo for Tibi Spring 2011 got me all excited. I was also swooned by one or two pieces de resistances from Jason Wu's 2011 Fall Collection, but as always I returned back to my senses logged on to my old faithful Reiss and new best friend BHLDN
