I handed in my thesis last Friday, and I’m going to a friend’s wedding this Friday. That’s a pretty tight turn around! I have been through my wardrobe and made a short (okay, long) list of dresses that are potential candidates for this wedding, and I want your opinion. Unsurprisingly, this also turns out to be a Jolie Vintage retrospective, as most of my wardrobe consists of pieces from that store. I’m still completely obsessed! They’ve just started a Facebook page, blog, and Twitter, which feeds my obsession nicely. I can’t recommend them highly enough! If you want designer quality and cut for a fraction of the price, buy vintage from them.
Anyway, back to me, haha! Here are seven dresses that I think would be suitable for the wedding. I want to know what you think! I can’t decide! As it’s my first proper night out post-thesis, I don’t want to look like I’ve been dragged backwards through a hedge. I want to get rid of the student look and enjoy a sophisticated night out.
All the dresses are from the 1960s. I must like that era! Also, some of my expressions look like I want to fight you. I assure you I do not.
1. Black dress with bell skirt.
4. Fine-knit cream dress with rhinestone-spangled sleeves and a low back.5. Black and white dress with fringing at the hem and pearl rhinestone detailing at the bust. The bodice also features knife-pleat chiffon.
Ideas on accessories are most welcome too!
