So I am getting married next year and definitely not wearing the traditional type of gown for various reasons I won't go into. I just want a fabulous, gorgeous dress that will make everyone go 'oooh!' but that I can still move around in and party in later on.
Have maximum £300 to spend, but need inspiration...I've looked at Monsoon and Coast already. Who else does amazing dresses that I can perv over? Any style, any colour.
Laura Ashley sometimes have some surprisingly ncie things too - their Vintage re-issues are pretty cool [rummages] saw this and this in real life yesterday and they are luscious - lovely fabrics, beautifully made. Better than Monsson IMO.
Umm, I look good in strong dark colours, so I was thinking probably a nice midnight blue or similar...white/cream/gold all make me look ill.
Length I am easy about; I like the extra fabulousness of the full length skirt (when do you ever get to wear a proper gown the rest of the time?), but am also tempted by a knee length as it will be more practical for our very informal meal+party, and also because my calves are much the best part of my body
