I’m reaching the age where I seem to have lots of weddings to go to. I tend to be really bad at reusing dresses and love the excuse to buy a new one. I always have the best intentions to re-wear a dress but it never seems to happen so when the other half asked me to be his plus one for a few weddings in November I instantly started browsing sites.
When I saw Asos had a sale on I started browsing and accidentally ended up with 12 items in my basket making their way to me!
Here are my top picks and I ended up keeping three of these dresses. I had the best intentions to only keep one but they were such bargains I needed to keep a few more.
This is my favourite of the dresses and most likely the one I’ll wear. I love the green colour with blonde hair and think the neckline is interesting. It’s also really comfortable as while it’s tight it skims everywhere. It also comes in petite range too. It comes in at £31. (link)
I love mint green and I’m yet to own much in this colour. I love the length and fit and it’s a little booby but think the length still makes it ok for a wedding. For me I wasn’t sure if this was too summer wedding due to the colour but it is available in a few other colours. It is a bargain £19 and is great quality. (link)
This one is the other half’s favourite. I know he’s biased to it though as he loves red dresses. I love the tone of this as I do find red sometimes looks cheap but as it’s a bit more on the burgundy side it looks nicer. I love the touch of lace. I’m a lace fan but I do think it’s hard to find lace that doesn’t look cheap sometimes. It is a very tight dress so this one may only be worn if I lose a pound or two so I’ll feel comfortable after eating. Another bargain at only £18. (link)
Lastly is this Lipsy one. I rarely find anything in Lipsy I like. I find it can be chavy, or way to short for a tall girl. I’m also not a fan of an exposed zip. All of that aside I love this dress. It’s a thick quality fabric so doesn’t bunch on the body and just skims. It has padded cups so a bra isn’t necessary, no exposed zip and a fair length. I love how the lace contours the waistline to help it appear smaller. This one is also only £19. (link)
Unfortunately this dress didn’t fit me when it arrived. If it did I think it would have been a favourite. I think it’s so simple but cut really well and stunning. It also comes in a cornflower blue. I think with pretty jewellery it would be amazing. (link)
With such bargain dresses who am I to resist a new one!
