What do you wear to weddings? It has come to my attention that for the past decade I’ve mainly worn dresses to weddings! How boring of me! The last few weddings I’ve recorded on the blog of me wearing dresses are here, here, here, here and here. (Wow that was a lot of weddings!) Inbetween these I attended one as a pianist and wore a blue blouse/pants set, seen here. Recently I decided to jump off the traditional wedding attire bandwagon and create quirky outfits that are still wedding-worthy. So the last wedding I attended I wore a tuxedo jumpsuit. And the wedding I attend on Australia Day last week created an opportunity for me to toy with a beloved trend- Renaissance.
So I pulled out my Victorian bellow-sleeve blouse, last seen here, and a H & M brocade skirt I’d discovered in an op-shop. Why anyone would get rid of a brand new brocade skirt (WITH POCKETS!) is just beyond me. I can only count my blessings and label it a ‘miracle-buy‘. Here is my darling friend Mei, who has been a big sister to this only-child-fashion-lover. Mei is also a self-confessed Net-a-Porter and Outnet addict. Don’t you just adore her Romance was Born silk dress? She is walking art. Baroque jewels and opulence, oh my!
So tell me, what do you wear to weddings? Are dresses your easy-option as well? Have you entered my SOSUME give-away yet? The Tee is made from the softest micro-modal, in Melbourne! I hope you’re embarking on a beautiful week, filled with surprises at every corner.
