But am I mad? - I'm 39 (tho I looked much younger than my age til I had dd) and I've just looked on Harrods site and they say Miss Sixty is a fave of Paris Hilton, Mischa Barton - I'm 20 yrs older than them, I am not a WAG, i'm just ordinary.
I hardly ever buy clothes, I like stuff a little interesting, but am I just going to look like mutton. The lady in the shop was so reassuring.
snowleopard - yes legs are ok. And I love the print - and I work in conservation so kind of appropriate. Dragonflys would be better tho'.
I suppose I feel ok, I just haven;t been to a wedding for years and I have no idea what people wear. Apart from dresses from Coast of course! And then there is what they wear, and what they look like in it.... when you look in the mirror it's as much about the image you think you see if you see what I mean.
I can look at it and think "that's great", but I can also look at it and think "what does she think she looks like" and dp hasn't seen me in it yet and I'm a bit worried he'll tend to the latter!
I'm 38, I've heard of Miss 60, I know what their stuff is like and that they're quite young and hip (and other impossibly out-of-touch "groovy" words ) but if I found something by them that suited me I wouldn't think twice about wearing it. I don't think you should be put off by a brand, just wear what appeals to you. Will people at the wedding recognise it anyway? I know my friends wouldn't!
Also I think fighting the wedding tyranny of Coast with something a bit quirky and different is always a good thing.
Oh and re what people wear at weddings, at the last few I've been to I've found quite a lot of the dresses really tame. I think it's a time to wear bright colours and something you would never normally wear. <eggs on some more>
