Deco Dreams

Bride I

I always knew my sister was awesome, but when she asked me to be her Maid of Honour last year and followed up by saying I could pick my own dress, she went to some whole new level of awesome. I never really got round to showing you what I wore on the day (baited breath right guys?) but I really felt that such a lot of glitz deserved a viewing. The whole bridesmaid gang wore different but complimentary deco inspired embellished gowns. We all got to pick what we wanted and as luck would have it they all ended up coming from designer Adrianna Papell, so that added a nice level of continuity. One of the main criteria was that we could all wear the dresses again and there is no doubt that I will, maybe when the ban on prohibition is lifted? I had to get the gown shortened slightly because I’m on the wee side, and I went to the wonderful Nana at Splendid Stitches, who I trust with all of my delicate and vintage alterations. I wore these ridiculous sparkly silver platforms on the day, because I have no sense whatsoever but am the master of my own destiny.

I did not wear this wig to the wedding, but I bought this bad boy from Selfridges when I was about sixteen and felt the old girl deserved some love. Also, final side note – for any Pretty Little Liars fans out there, I recently saw Ella wear this very dress in the most recent season. Not going to lie, I did a mini squeak.
