Outfit Post: Dressing for Weddings

Topshop Dress | Vintage Fur & Brooch | Hat designed by my Mom
HYPE of Lookbook.nu HERE

On Saturday, I attended my first wedding in a long time. The weather was absolutely beautiful & I had a really fantastic day. As always, my outfit was a bit of a last minute decision (an hour before the wedding!) but thankfully it came together pretty well in the end. I bought the dress in Topshop in London last April, knowing that there would definitely be some occasion coming up throughout the year. It’s not actually Topshop, but instead one of the brands they sell in their downstairs section. The fur was belong to my aunt & I just added the vintage brooch myself. Just before I was all set to leave for the church, I found the head piece in my Mom’s bedroom & it’s one which, believe it or not, she made herself! I wish I had a clearer picture to show you (it was a rush to even get this one) but basically it’s a mixture of black, gold & burgundy. She designed it for an event she went to a few years back & I was over the moon when I found it.  It got loads of compliments throughout the day & even a few requests about ordering similar pieces. Once I get back to Kerry again, I’ll take a more detailed picture to show you.

I recently received an email asking me did I know of any good online stores which cater for this type of occasion. Dressing for weddings can be a little tricky & it often takes quite a lot of thought.  I’m definitely not one to spend hundreds of euro on a dress which I might just end up wearing once, so I think that the dresses On ASOS are very difficult to beat. There’s an extremely wide range & I feel that they have something for everyone. Let me know if you have any “go-to” online stores?


Hope you’re having a good start to the week!

Stylishly yours,
