If you’re going to have a party in a bombshelter, you gotta do it right!
We’re ridonkulously excited about our imminent 1940s party, and so here we go with some more themed posting!
We can’t ever forget the horrors of war on a home front, but nor should we ever forget the amazing sense of community that was bourne out of such hardship in 1940s Britain. Blighty without a party? Not bloody likely, Johnny Foreigner!
But without all the fuss! Put away your tailoring scissors and leave the sewing machine under its cover – three have found the answer to your prayers – the kind of prayers offered up on a shopping trip when you know *exactly* what you want to wear to that houseparty, but you can’t find it anywhere…
…but this one is not by Vivienne Westwood, and nor does it cost £1.8 million! We were feeling pretty rubbish for going off message and showing you those beautiful but ridonkulously expensive frocks, but lo! On a shopping trip in a small seaside town we made amends – Looksie:
Don’t like the idea of the traditional white wedding dress? How about this for a (hugely expensive!) alternative? ….
I think I’m a little in love. Has anyone got a spare $1.4 million?!
I popped into my local Asda yesterday for some much needed coffee for work and as always when I go to a supermarche ‘accidently’ got lost in the clothes section.
I left with some coffee and two new dresses. WHOOPSIE!! although not so whoopsie as i paid no more than £28 for the lot!!
This inspired me to share with you all my purchases and the reassurance that just because you’ve bought your party frock from a place they sell raw fish don’t mean nothing. You’ll still look a million dollars. These are the beauties I bought:And check out just some of the other goodies (I’m after the one on the right next!) The most expensive dress here is a mere £20!! And I’m pretty sure you could find something similar in Topshop being sold for twice the price.
Don’t be ashamed of supermarket love! Embrace the bargains! And spend the remaining cash on the grub and the drinks – no one will notice the dress after a few anyway!
I have just been trawling t’internet for boredom fixes, and I rediscovered possibly my favourite wedding picture ever…
So the marriage didn’t last, but my god, Dita will always have this fashion wonderment. I’m pretty sure it wasn’t cheap; Vivienne Westwood rarely is. What she is, however, is the rebellious answer to Vera Wang’s white-and-poofy wedding dress traditionalism, and this plum perfection is nothing if not unique. It pays to be bold sometimes, girlies …
Bed sheets arn’t just good for ghost costumes, you know.
Let’s take some inspiration from Kristen and Josh who had a wedding full of handmade things from the people they love.
Her wedding dress started off like this:
And after some rather skilled sewing…
Turned into this gorgeous creation!
Who says you need to spend a fortune on a dress? All you need is a bed sheet (if you’re feeling fancy, go poking around in a vintage shop for a lovely antique one) and some mad stitch-ery skills and voila! Thrifty, original and gorgeous.
