What I wore - black and white wedding

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

My friend's recent wedding reception had a black and white theme and, to my surprise, I had little in my wardrobe to fit the bill. I didn't want to go all black and definitely didn't want to go all in white, so I went looking for something with a bit of a pattern. Being a bit of a patternphobe I tend to stick to block colour but this rope chain print Oasis dress from Very wasn't too scary.

Bag - Warehouse / Flower ring - Accessorise / Above the knuckle ring - Wired Jewellery / Nails - Rimmel

I've had this bag forever, I found it in a reduced bin in Warehouse for £3.00 eons ago. It's the sort of thing that comes out when something a little eveningish is required. I painted my nails with my current crush - Rimmel I love Lasting Finish Nail Polish in 270 Hot Shot - to keep my outfit from being entirely monochrome.


I wore my new Rockalily Vintage Vixen lippy (a panic purchase when I heard that Rockalily lipsticks were soon to be no more). This is just one coat which gives a subtle colour, this is my favourite brand of lippy, the colours are long lasting and vibrant - perfect for pale skin, it's super hydrating and smells like cake. I can't believe that once it's gone, it's gone!

Have you ever been to a themed wedding?

  3. I love your outfit and that pink pop of colour is perfect, where did you get your shoes from, they look very 1940's. Never been to a themed wedding but like the idea of them, I can imagine that the wedding photos look really good. xx

  8. Love the dress! I bet everyone looked very classy in monochrome, although I do think dressing for a wedding is hard enough without a theme!
