So my high school best friend is getting married soon, and I have no idea what to wear! It’s been around 10 years since I’ve attended a wedding, in fact, I think the last wedding I went to I wore a dress by what was then known as Big City Chic. So yeah, it’s been a long time!
This is what I wore to their engagement party. Full post here.
So, most of my nice/fancy dresses are black. I know black is more accepted at wedding these days, but I would really love to wear some colour. It’s a Spring wedding in the Hunter Valley, that just makes me think colour. Florals, pretty dresses, pearls. So, i’ve done a round up of what my mind is currently obsessed with. I’ll probably go a dress, but I am also loving the idea of the jumpsuits, something a little out of the box!

City Chic has an amazing range of gorgeous floral dresses i’m just in love with! For the strapless dresses, you can always wear a cardigan or bolero on top, or even underneath!

I know that I can sometimes over think outfits, I think it’s a mix of wanting to look good and wanting to fit in. I want something that makes me feel good, but also something I’m comfortable in. I don’t want to wear black or white, but I want to feel chic and glam. I guess all these wants is why i’ve found it hard to figure out what to wear!!
What outfit would you choose to wear?
On Saturday night I headed out to The LuWow for a friends birthday. I had no idea what to wear, a mental state i’ve been in a lot lately. I really wanted to wear my Neverland dress from PUG, but while it fits around the waist, the bust is just way too big on me (see here). I really need to go get it tailored. I decided to make it happen though, and just turned the bust down inside the dress. Paired with the crop & belt, I think it worked well.
I’d heard of The LuWow before, I was meant to attend an event there previously, but didn’t make it, and I knew it had been used for photo shoots I’ve seen before, but that’s about it. It is a kitschy tiki paradise! It made me think back to Aitutaki and wish I could be back there. Later in the night we made out way into the other room to see the wrapping up “of a wild disco freak armageddon scene in the movie ‘Fags in The Fast Lane'”. Which we didn’t know at the time, it really was like we’d fallen down the rabbit hole, or what I imagine an acid trip may be like, it was truly spectacular though. (Unlike acid, drugs are bad!)
Oh yeah, my hair is blue-ish currently. I’m loving how it looks offset with browns. I’m wearing a whole bunch of make up, but it’s Colourpop “Beeper” on my lips, mainly Sugarpill “Countess” on my eyes & of course, Benefits “They’re Real” mascara. (Want to know any other product, just ask).
I don’t consider myself a big drinker, I may have a glass every 2 months or so, but I did let go a little on the night (and managed to catch the train home, go me!). The way they served up their cocktails were super fun with things like those rubber hands in a variety of poses, a plastic snake in a giant cocktail bowl and even one that came lit on fire! Left is the Tropical Itch and on the right is the Pain Killer. I certainly needed some real pain killers on Sunday!
What did you get up to on the weekend?
My life isn’t perfect, and I don’t try to make it out to be that way. I am not always fashionable, when i’m home you’ll often find me in over sized t-shirts and leggings. I care way too much about what other people think of me. I struggle with my mental health almost daily. I love that my cat is so snugly but I dislike living so far away from my family. I don’t drive, I don’t smoke and I hardly ever drink.
I have more shoes then I know what to do with. I come from a family of accountants, but I suck at maths. Having dark hair makes me feel sad. I love reading paranormal romance novels. I am suck at being a good friend because I suck at communicating. I like my own space. Oysters & Orange juice are 2 of my favourite things.
It took me way too long to learn to tell the time on an analog clock. Sometimes I think this blog is one of the main things that has kept me sane, having an outlet to create. I miss rollerblading and bike riding. My favourite colour is pink.
Tell me something about yourself.
