WEDDING EDIT: Something Old, Something New

 

Something borrowed, something blue!  It’s wedding season and even though it’s not your special day you still want to look your best, but it doesn’t necessarily mean you have to pay the Bride’s hefty price tag.

Below are my favourite picks to suit different budgets.  From lace inserts and sheer panels to prints and pleats, these mini to midi dresses are not only on trend but classic staples that will see you through the rest of the summer and even save you the hassle of finding something for next year’s invite!  If it’s a different crowd then who will know you’ve worn it already!

L to R: & OTHER STORIES Graphic Steamer Dress £95, TOPSHOP Lace Applique A-line Dress £40, THREE FLOOR Pleats And Thank You Dress £126, ASOS Swing Dress In Pleated Stripe £75, WAREHOUSE Mesh Lace Bodice Pleat Skirt Dress £80, WHISTLES Cora Lace Dress £225

 

I wore a Whistles blue lace dress with pleats at the weekend that I first debuted to a wedding last year and nobody knew (until now obviously)!

The Chanel Effect

The fashion ‘frowers’ were en masse for the Chanel Haute Couture A/W14 Collection at Paris Couture Fashion Week.

The Grand Palais saw a fantastical display of clean lines mixed with Chanel’s traditional wools and the occasional tartan thrown in for good measure.  

Embellished necklines were aplenty with cross body bags and clever use of layering – peekaboo shorts under a bell shaped skirt.

The 80s made an appearance through the punk inspired hairstyles which were a welcome balance to the more feminine style reminiscent of the 18th Century.
