So it’s officially 9 days until my Bridal Party💍Yay! or as we call it in Ireland “Hen’s Party” and for the guys “Stags”.I honestly do not know how us lady’s got stuck with “Hens” as a nickname for it I’ll never know 😂I think Bachelorette is better. My bridesmaid and I took a trip to Dundrum shopping Centre this eve.
My theme is “Old Hollywood/Great Gatsby” for my party basically anything with lace,sequins,or feathers. Obviously being the Bride I will wear white.
Our first stop was House Of Fraser we literally took 10 minutes and cherry picked any dresses we could find in white from nearly every concession. We took every style,shape and material into consideration. Tried on them all and because I am tall I wanted a dress better suited to my body shape & height.
I ended up going for a Grecian style dress from Miss Selfridges the pictures do it no justice as it is fabalous in real life.It’s flattering on the bust especially if you have a bust. In nips in on the waist and then falls it a flattering cut to the knees. The material is soft but thick so it’s not very skimpy and it has thin straps and a gold detail on the straps and matching gold belt. (Which I will remove and put a more embellished sash on the waist.
I also fell in love with this embellished Bolero and couldn’t leave it behind what I adore about this is it’s a piece that will forever be in your wardrobe it’s well made and literally will dress up any outfit in a instant and after all Gatsby era was all about embellishment.
I also picked up a pair of small block heeled shoes in Penneys these are super comfortable,and versatile as I am sure I’ll be dancing all night. Im opting for comfort over fashion on this one.Plus they were only €15 so you can’t go wrong.
I plan on themeing it with a feather boa, satin gloves and a Gatsby art decoration head piece 💎
Will post pictures after my party 💏
