As the summer evenings become lighter, longer and fingers crossed they remain warmer, it feels like the Easter bank holiday has only just been and gone. Now I find myself with another bank holiday to fill! It shouldn’t be hard; as I have the wedding of a dear friend this weekend.
As a collector of all things vintage, when attending weddings I always go full out in the vintage department and tomorrow is no exception. I am wearing the most beautiful, vivid, emerald green, vintage dress, that I found in a thrift store a good few years ago. The embroidered silk and the clean 1950’s cut of this dress makes it a real joy to wear. I am adding a tutu to the underneath of this dress to enable the skirt to kick out a little, plus when the evening draws near and the party begins, I will be more suitably attired! I am accessorising my look with the most feminine hot red, bow suede shoes, vintage lace gloves and a beautiful 1950’s side hat complete with veil and pheasant feathers.
The day after the wedding I am attending a BBQ at the new brides house. Weather permitting, I will be wearing my new summer crush dress and I am so very excited to be giving it, it’s first outing!
The Sugarhill ‘Alexa’ Tropical Print dress, £44.99, has had me in a bit of a spin ever since I first saw it whilst browsing
The vibrant vivacious print gives this garment individuality and if, like me, you love your vintage, or, vintage inspired clothing, then this is the dress for you. The loose baby-doll shape and round neck lends itself perfectly to the summer and the contrasting beaded detail to the neckline is a stunning addition. I’m wearing my ‘Alexa’ dress with brown gladiator sandals or, fringed ankle boots depending on the weather! To synch in my waist I’m also wearing the Butterfly Leather Waist Belt £16.99.
