BETH DITTO FOR EVANS wiggle dress size 30 £5 (plus £3 P&P)

I love this but have only been brave enough to wear it once. There is a slight tear at the back (approx 1/2 inch) where the elastic feature at the back meets the material but this is an easy repair. Such a sexy dress!

Some of these items have been in storage so may need washing when they arrive. I also have a cat so cannot guarantee that he won’t contribute some ginger fur to my packages!

I have more to upload shortly xxx

Wedding Days

My lovely cousin is getting married in October, I am very happy for her as she has been trying to find someone to settle down with for quite some time and thanks to EHarmony she finally seems to have found her puzzle piece. Now, this is lovely apart from one thing, he is one of the best friends of my evil ex-boyfriend which means that I have to spend a day in his company. I was kind of hoping to be able to snare a fit bloke to talk into being my arm candy on the day, however, I haven’t got a plus one so I’ve got to do this bad boy solo.

 Obviously, this means that I need to look FIERCE!

I have started doing some browsing to try to come up with an idea of what I want to wear to make myself feel good on the day and I thought I’d share some of them with you.

 I’ve had my eye on this Rainforest Paradise Maxi by Igigi for some time, I love the colours and think that on the black background they really do pop and look awesome. The variety of colour gives me varied makeup and accessories options but I am not sure I’d wear heels with a Maxi so I’m unsure that I’d feel ‘dressy’ enough.

Continuing with the maxi theme this beautiful ‘Kiyomi’ Zebra print dress by Igigi has caught my eye. I LOVE the red accents and could totally see me rocking this with a red clutch, pashmina and shoes. However, I would want to wear my red glitter Dorothy shoes and the fact that it’s a maxi might mean that they look a bit odd. I am of the opinion that Maxi’s look better with flats as the whole design of them is a bit boho, however, having done a quick scout online, I am struggling to find red flats that I like!

 The sexy Siren Satin Dress by Kiyonna is another one that I have had my eye on. This really would be the sex kitten option, it’s satin and figure hugging but the way that it drapes makes it look very flattering on and with the right underwear I can smooth down the lumps and bumps that I wouldn’t want to have on show. I can just see this with some serious killer heels and 50s style hair and makeup and as it’s a bargain at just over £50 I could spend the money I’ve saved on more expensive shoes!!

 

Sticking with the sexy slinky vibe this dress by So Fabulous has caught my eye. It is called the Animal print Illusion dress as it has the dark panels at the side to create that hourglass illusion effect. I would need to order this and try it first though as the So Fabulous range is a little hit and miss on quality in my experience and a dress like this would need to be a decent thick material to work. I would personally accessorize this with a very HOT Pink shoe and makeup combination. I think it would look awesome with the monochrome dress.

 The final option is to do what I did for a wedding a couple of years ago and get a dress made to measure. I LOVED the dress that I got made, It fitted me perfectly and I felt gorgeous in it. It did cost me over £250 BUT I personally think it was worth every penny. Here is a picture of me wearing my dress with my Mummy and Auntie Sheena

 What do you think?

 I have until October to decide what I am going to wear but I always find it’s best to start the search early, if you have any suggestions, or know anyone that makes banging dresses then please do let me know!

Love and Kisses
