YAY FOR TESCO! They are ruling the dress market at the moment, RULING, I SAY. It gives me crazy happy feelings to wear a bargain £25 dress to a posh event (i.e. a wedding) rather than a pricey, dry clean only job. This dress is kind of perfect. It's a great fit, a lovely length, and I adore the print. I'm sad to say it's already disappeared from the website, but you may still be able to get it in store - and if you can, snap it up. IT IS LOVELY.
One but - the skirt is a little too full, and I flashed people about sixty times. The beehive came out okay, but I always get to this point where I'm mid backcombing where I totally forget what I'm doing and just look like a crazy person with giant frizzy hair. Hence the flowers in the back - hiding a multitude of frizzy sins. I did have a disaster though when I realised my neck was covered in hairdye from the night before - thank god for mums, and baby wipes.
So, yes, another wedding. Even I feel like I'm going to them constantly at the moment, even I've actually only had three this year. It feels like more! But I'm not complaining, as I totally heart weddings. I think I say that in every wedding-related post. But it's an excuse to wear pretty dresses! And sometimes giant false eyelashes! What's not to love?
This time was my old friend Gemma, who I worked with in my temping days. As much as I enjoy having a job that challenges and fulfils me and successfully pays all of my bills, there is a part of me that misses rocking up at work after five or six hours sleep and getting along just fine because I was using so little of my brain capacity. That was a FUN year. I loved her dress, a cute little number from Coast. I loved her theme, too - I'd never have thought of green and yellow together, but it works perfectly. So summery!
It was a wonderful wedding - so much yummy food and god knows I love a chance to dance the night away. Just give me an excuse, seriously.
