Sometimes we're rather radical

I'm starting to think Joe may have caught my lets to things randomly bug. It's the same bug that got me into doing an MA, made me get tattoos, dyed my hair random colours. Ok not really huge things, but ya know. For some reason i'd taken out and dusted off the dress that I'd brought from TMaxx for our wedding, ever since I'd brought it i'd always had a little inch of doubt about it but I thought i'd go with it. Trying it on again and the last little bit of hope I had vanished. Trouble is, with it being V necked in shape, it was rather revealing and went rather low - possibly not the most flattering for a wedding and more then a nightmare when it came to trying to find suitable underwear to wear underneath. Don't get me wrong it is a gorgeous dress, ivory and white in colour with Georgian like ruffles and gathers down the back with a ribbon bow formed into black flowers under the bust. What was even better was that is only cost £30.
The first wedding dress with the black flower detailing.
I don't know how it came about, I normally moan about my dress and then forget about it for another month or two but on Sunday I actually started poking around for dresses just to see what else there was available that was wedding like, not an overly formal dress, but one that was special yet wouldn't break the bank. Joe stumbled upon the Milanoo website just to nosey at other dresses and I happily clicked upon the wedding dresses and I just totally fell in love with the first one on their page. I'm a totally lucky girl because Joe even brought it for me :D
This champagne coloured [you can also get it in pink, grey, pink and ivory], a line, knee length dress is totally my dress. It even comes with the flowers attached. It was partly a guess with the dress size and we opted for the champagne colour. Luckily I'm not one for superstition because Joe's already seen it - well the picture of it at least and it is getting delivered to his flat. Hopefully it looks half decent on - it's a slight risk but sometimes they pay off.

  3. Thank you! Weirdly I brought a bracelet for the wedding about this time last year which is weirdly so so so like the flowers on that dress. It's a bizarre twist of fate!
