dream dress

I had this dress on my favourites on etsy for ages and then it disappeared, I nearly wept as I wanted to wear it for an upcoming wedding. It was just something about the soft powder blue and lace that had me weak at the knees. Thankfully the listing had just expired, so after days of pondering I finally bought it. I buy a lot of clothes but I never spend over £30 on one piece without deep consideration! *Side note* totally had to pay £31 in custom charges so was even more boo. 

Any who I wore it for Ben's sister's wedding on Friday, which was such a lovely day, especially as my man and his twin brother walked her down the aisle. Me and strapless dresses are not friends, it was the first time I've ever worn a strapless bra, but I still felt rather glamourous despite the paranoia I'd do a Judy Finnegan. I swear I need to start my own lingerie company for all sized women, who knew it was so hard to find a pretty strapless bra?! I paired my dream dress with some good ol' Matalan black heels, my starfish handbag, a pair of spider earrings - as I cannot resist a dash of the macabre and a Spanish gold necklace that I kept draping on my back, I once saw Nicole Kidman do that so though what the hell? why not. 







Terrible shot of me outside, me and natural light do not mix, my hair was beautifully set until I went out, how do you fellow ladies keep your pin set to stay in? I had to sweep it up in the evening as I looked like a drowned rat. But wanted to show my ensemble in its full glory heh.

  5. Stunning! Drop-dead, sublimely stunning, honey! Ooohh, this was worth every last penny. It looks as though it was tailor made for you, dear girl. How wonderful that you were able to get in the end (I know that moment of dread when one of your etsy faves suddenly disappears all too well!).

  6. brillant dress! you look 1000-dollars! strapless-bras are not worth the money, the best I know are 50s long bras with replaceable straps and for a pin curls set: lottabody is the secret - there is no other... xxx
