I need the help of the blogosphere to find the wedding guest dress of my dreams.
A couple of very dear friends are getting married in September and I need an outfit.
Of course I have known about the wedding for around a year but only now have I really turned my attention to the perfect frock.
Over the months and weeks I’ve seen nice dresses, some lovely dresses and some stunning dresses but of course I always thought something better would come along.
This weekend I went to the shops and they are full of winters black and grey and only a few sales rails are left with hints of the summer that might have been.
I don’t do black, white, overtly sexy or bejeweled for weddings.
What I really want is some kind of fantastic vintage, floral number but I am blessed with a chest whose proportions don’t really fit in vintage dresses (or actually very many dresses at all) and I don’t think I’ve really got time to get a dress maker to make alterations.
I don’t want to have anything that looks like I’m a) going clubbing later b) an actual bridesmaid c) appearing on strictly come dancing.
Does anyone have any hidden gem houses/ shops who stock dress sizes above a 10? The budget is fairly generous because they are great friends.
Any suggestions for a really special wedding present within a reasonable budget would be wonderful as well. I want to go off list if I can but they don't like clutter or anything overly sentimental.
