- Wedding: March 2014
I’d LOVE to see photos of beautiful bees dressed up for weddings over the summer!
FH and I are attending our friends’ wedding in October, the first of his rather large friend group 🙂 (amusing as they were the last of three pairs to get engaged, we’re actually getting married in reverse order).
Anyway… I’m on the hunt for something pretty to wear and I haven’t found “it” yet. October is mid-Spring here so I’m hoping for good weather, but it could be a tad nippy as it gets dark. The invite said “party attire” so it’s not overly formal. I have in mind that I really want to wear a maxi (warmer… plus my legs not exactly for public viewing yet :P), preferably bright & patterned but the only ones I’ve fallen in love with, that are silk so look wedding-appropriate not beach-appropriate, are out of my $100-130ish price range. I’ve done a TON of searching of sites like Asos & Modcloth but nothing’s quite clicking yet. I should add (I’m editing this in) that I’m busty so can’t wear anything high necked or it looks like they’re coming out my chin!.
My current favourite is this dress from Modcloth which I have a suspicion is actually a Donna Morgan bridemaid dress? Or very similar? But I figure I can add some colourful jewellery to it to make it more “guest” appropriate. It’s also rather hugely out of my price range, $220 but I do have a $100 ModCloth voucher his family gave me for my birthday. But do I want to spend all of that on half a dress? I’m debating.
But I’d LOVE to see more photos of what you’ve been wearing… because I might just rethink!
I’d be particularly keen to see any other Modcloth dresses, because I’m perpetually afraid that they look rather short, even though I’m short myself!
