I keep making references back to the wedding I went to on Saturday, but this time this relates to my chosen outfit for the occasion.
As a family we had our first photograph taken and I posted it on both Facebook and Twitter. We’ve had lots of lovely comments about it, but surprisingly I’ve had a huge interest in the dress I was wearing & many people have asked where it was from. So, without further ado, I saw this as a fantastic blogging opportunity to tell you a little bit more about it.
Having had my baby just four months ago I was eager to find a nice outfit that I would both look nice in, and feel comfortable. And as always, I wanted something a little bit different. I didn’t want High Street or something that somebody else could potentially end up wearing! I mean that’s every girls worst nightmare isn’t it?!
So, I took to the pages of the Very website and had a browse through their massive collection. It took me some time, but I eventually settled for six different dresses. My husband nearly had a fit when he saw the delivery, but calmed a little when I told him that I would be returning five!
This is the beauty of online shopping. With a four month old baby, it’s not practical to go endlessly trekking around tonnes of shops trying clothes on. I could do this in the comfort of my own home. I was over the moon when they all fit! Having that extra little bit of baby weight, I was expecting them to be small in places, but they weren’t. How exciting. Now all I had to do was choose which style I preferred.
And so the Teatro Erin Spot Occasion Dress won! I felt instantly glam in it. It reminded me of something that Holly Willoughby might wear. This reassured me as she and I have the same type of figure.
The dress is of Satin feel but is made of 95% polyester and 5% elastane, and so gave a nice comfortable fit. It also stretched where it needed to. It has a gorgeous lace panel at the top and three-quarter length sleeves. The contrast of the lace next to the satin made it stand out and is what made it strikingly different. I loved it and it had too be mine.
I decided to team it with some black suede hidden platform stiletto’s that had gold studs on the heel. These were purchased from Republic. I got them for a steal for £26 reduced from £40. I also wore, during the day, a cropped black, long sleeve cardigan. This I found in an independent store for just £5.
On the day I decided to wear my full fringe down but had a messy ‘up do’. I had smokey black eyes & pale glossy lips. Upon looking in the mirror, I felt very ‘Breakfast At Tiffany’s’!
