What I Wore: September Wedding Guest


In September, I had the absolute pleasure of attending my stepbrother's wedding. While the dress code of this particular wedding was simply "come dressed for a party", there is nothing I love more than an excuse to wear dresses that are a lot more extravagant than the ones I wear to the office, and what better opportunity than a wedding to wear something really special?

The first time I laid eyes on this gorgeous pink number by Love Clothing, I knew it was going to be the one I picked up for the wedding. However, at £49, it was out of my price range, and so, the search for another dress began. I'll admit, I spent a ridiculous amount of time lusting after some ChiChi dresses, but these were even more expensive! In the end, I crept back to Topshop to see if the Love Clothing dress was available.

It was.

And, not only was it available, but it had been reduced to £35! 

At that price, I couldn't resist. 

A few weeks later, these ASOS shoes arrived at my house, much to my bemusement. I'd remembered looking at them online and thinking "OH GOD WHY DON'T THEY HAVE MY SIZE!", I definitely don't remember ordering them. But here they are! And when I checked my email, I did indeed have a confirmation email and the money had left my account. What a strange experience, but I'm not complaining as they are great shoes. 

This outfit was just meant to be.

I will admit, I wasn't entirely comfortable at first. It is completely open at the sides meaning my rolls and side boobs were on show to the world. However, in the end, I opted for some nipple shields and some carefully placed safety pins and by the time I'd had my first gin and tonic, I didn't feel uncomfortable, I felt like an absolute goddess. 

All in all, a very brave, but worth it £35 to spend.

If you've got an outfit that is totally out of your comfort zone, I'd love to see it!
