Every girl needs new shoes...

Evening you lovely bunch! It's my friend Annie's wedding this Friday, so with that in mind I went shopping for a frock...and ended up with one, and some shoes. Naturally. :)
I popped into Phase Eight expecting to fall in love with a dress that's WAY out of my price range and generally sulk. However when this beauty was found lurking in the rails I thought it'd be rude not to try it on. It fitted and as they say the rest is history. One thing to note is the dress cost £120. Originally. But I got it for £36 in the sale.
I love the detailing on the bust and the straps are really unusual. It has a really "vintage" feel to it (I hate using that word to describe new things) but I feel like a screen siren in it. Add a era inspired hair do and I'm ready to go.
Along with these shoes for a flash of colour I think it's a perfect dress for a wedding. Now I just need to find a jewelled clip for my hair and I'm done.

I'll be taking lots of pics on the day, and as most of you know I'll be a busy hairstylist, doing 7 heads of hair on the day. So watch this space for how it went, pictures and I'm hoping a happy, sunny wedding day.


  1. Ahh this is so pretty! I'm with you about the whole vintage thing, just 2 mins ago I was looking on ebay for something and it was VINTAGE NECKLACE, no.. it's not, it was bulk made in a factory in China a few weeks ago hahaha xx

  2. Absolutely stunning especially styled with those gorgeous shoes and the clutch.
    I'd call that tremendously bargainacious dress a classically styled piece, very Marilyn Monroe in Bus Stop.
    Please take loads of photos. x

  3. The dress is beautiful - I can't believe how much it was reduced by! xx

  4. Oh that dress is amazing (although the shoes are equally brilliant too). Very classical - it reminds me a bit of a 30's take on Grecian drapery.

    Hope that you manage to fight off the dreaded cold!
