We have a weddinging in about 5 weeks and I do like to be organised:) So having this lovely Sunday afternoon free and at home, I thought I would try out two options I have been considering.
This is my DH's side of the family and they are very relaxed and not sophisiticated people at all, so I can really wear whatever I feel like without it being a problem. I wont be suprised if I spot the odd pair of jeans there!
Both dresses have been in my closet for quite some time and I am not feeling the need to purchase anything new.
#1 - #3
This is a lovely black velvet & sheer dress. The photos don't really do the fabric justice. It's just so lush and lovely. I have tried it in a couple of variations, bare legs (but I would wear nude hose on the day), micro fishnet hose and ponte skinny leg pants. All are worn with my new Django & Juliette booties. The booties are leather and suede, which kind of reflects the velvet in the dress and a subtle trim detail that also works nicely with the dress.
For the record, I am not crazy about the pants with this but did like the idea of it.
#4 is a sheath dress, with my red pumps, skinny red belt and new black and white abstract blazer.
Can I ask you what you think? I am leaning quite heavily towards one of these but won't say which one
BTW the wedding is at 1.30 p.m. and followed by a late lunch reception.
