Off to my third wedding within two months tomorrow and am looking at ways to make my outfits look LESS pretty. For some reason this season I have been erring toward the Prom, vintage cuts in pastel colours. I wore a really pretty pink dress from Oasis last week and went for the 'sweet' Stepford look with white pointed pumps, a knitted white cardigan and low bun. My make up was super simple and I think the only jewelry I had on were a pair of cute stud earrings. The setting was a beautiful Manor House in Aylesbury where there were swans!!!! ...
... However tomorrow's wedding will be in the city and will be among a large number of my friends so decided to quirk it up this round. I am still undecided between a Metallic Lilac dress from Oasis I got from the sales or this yellow Prom style my sister got for me at a sample sale, £4 Haaaay! The two are very cute indeed but need edging out a bit, so here are my suggestions in doing so!
So here are a few ideas. Red lips are always considered a statement, they are just so bold and makes your lips POP. Why not throw over a cool denim oversized Wrangler style jacket over your dress or something even edgier...a leather biker jacket. Finally, accessories do not get more out there than a giant hair bow, this is the modern girls dress hat so it doesn't matter if it might block someones view. The mother of the bride and aunties will be doing the same. I think it will be a matter of choosing two ideas max out of the three if you were going to try them. It may be a little OTT with them all, but hey, that might be your schtick. I will let you know how I get along and what I went with in the end...if any!
