come on and have some fun with me.Alternative Wedding Dress. I need a skirt!
So I need a bottom half. I quite fancy a mermaid tail skirt / fish tail skirt would need to be reasonably priced (50punds ISH). I was thinking black so that I could get some ware out of it in future. I wear a size 14next jean but maybe look around the 16 / 18 mark for a skirt.
Would also be open to any other suggestions
Would also like a long sleeved bolero or similar. HATE my arms!
So come on and tell me where to look for the bottom half
I would say to keep the shrug very plain, because there is lots of detail in the rest of your outfit. Am not sure what material the first skirt is made of - it looks like satin, so maybe a satin shrug?
I think of a bolero as more like a mini jacket and quite loose, but a shrug is more fitted to the body and is basically two sleeves held together by a minimum of fabric and quite cut away, so you see a lot more of your dress. That distinction might just exist in my head though!
I think black, unless you could get one in the exact same colour and material as your corset
