I’m super super excited because I’ve found out that I have a wedding to attend – yay! I’m even more excited because this wedding is for one of my wonderful family members who I have been waiting years to see walk down the aisle (it’s a long story!) So with that in mind, I’ve decided that I need to go on the hunt for the perfect dress to wear. Any excuse ey.
My first thought was for Pieces Of The Past! They have so many gorgeous vintage style dresses that would be perfect for such a wonderful occasion. Plus, I have a huge wishlist for them with no place to wear them!
My first choice from POTP would be the absolutely stunningly beautiful Ophelia which is currently out of stock, but will be restocked!
I’m absolutely crazy over this dress! The teal background, the contrasting ruched bust-line, the vintage floral pattern – this dress really has it all and is an absolute bargain. I imagine this with a little cap sleeve bolero, some t bar nude shoes and deep sultry red lips. Hopefully it will come back into stock soon and I can snap it up!
Also catching my eye on Pieces Of The Past is this lovely floral Yulia dress! I adore the sweetheart neckline of this and it is cut very similar to my lovely Floral Jive Dress also from POTP! I have the perfect orange/coral lippie that would make this dress pop and think it would look fantastic twirling around on the dance floor!
Another beautiful dress company is Collectif who make stunning vintage reproduction dresses. I have two of their dresses currently and the quality of them is absolutely incredible.
The Faye Floral Doll Dress is absolutely to die for and goes up to a UK 28-30! This dress has stunning applique flowers, velvet trim, a tulle overlay and a lovely keyhole fastening to the back. This dress retails at a huge £115, however it’s currently on sale at £65 and I’m very tempted to snap it up! Even though it’s dark for a wedding, I could add some bright heels, a little bolero or blingy cape-let and some seriously red lips.
One dress I’m truly obsessed with and keep considering ordering is the Scarlett & Jo Black Floral Print Prom Dress which is absolutely dreamy.
My family aren’t the biggest fans of tattoos, so the mesh sleeves would be a brilliant way to try and cover some up without being too covered up – if that makes any sense?! The mesh top and sweetheart neckline is a great way to show a hint of cleavage whilst still being family friendly and I personally think I really suit mesh items. The print is beautiful, a real vintage floral without being too clustered or too busy. The colours are simple yet work so well together giving a real understated simple elegance to the dress. I love that the dress has a waist tie as I’m bigger on top and so dresses often need to be pulled in, however I dislike big bulky belts! This dress would look wonderful with some semi sheer black tights, statement heels, a beautiful vintage style up do and of course – classic red lips. This may be the one!
