I have a dress very similar to the one pictured. It's a very long, very loose fitting, black pleated maxi dress with a tie around the waist.
Ordinarily I would not wear black to a wedding but I will be 37 weeks pregnant and astonishingly this non maternity dress which I already own, fits me well and I REALLY don't want to spend money on a new maternity dress just for a few hours of wear. I am led to believe it is now socially acceptable to wear black at a wedding - though correct me if I'm wrong, please!! It's not a church wedding, and is a little bit alternative in a 'hipster' sort of way (god that word fills me with fear!)
So I like the dress but what do I wear with it? I have a statement gold necklace, which is great, but other than that, nothing
I will need something on my arms and on my feet but will not be able to wear heels! I was wondering if some kind of head wear might be a good way of adding some colour? Do I even need to add colour?
Budget is an issue, I don't have loads to spend. Maybe £50. More if I can get more wear out of it though...
