Dress To Impress

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:zzbought!And check out just some of the other goodies (I’m after the one on the right next!) zzwantThe 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! 

 

   

 
 

 

Dita Von Fabulous

I have just been trawling t’internet for boredom fixes, and I rediscovered possibly my favourite wedding picture ever…

Wow. Just wow.

Wow. Just wow.

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 …

DIY Wedding Dress

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:

Sheet / Ghost
Sheet / Ghost

And after some rather skilled sewing… 

A stitch in time...

A stitch in time...

Turned into this gorgeous creation!

Beautiful!

Beautiful!

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.
