002: Fadermeister Berlin Dress, £419
I've been having a recent wedding outfit dilemma. Having been invited, despite my best wishes, to various weddings this year I have been trying to find an outfit which would be suitable for all. A bit of a tall order, perhaps as one of them is a summer garden party affair with a greenhouse and will hopefully be on a rather sunny day, whilst the other isn't until late November. That said, I think I may have cracked it. Here's what I think I'm going to go with.

001: I think this sequin jacket would be perfect to add the day-to-night glamour for the summer wedding and in fact to just about any outfit. I'm imagining it layered over a full-skirted dress with a pair of Mary Jane heels, perhaps with a sparkly clutch bag. The pretty sequin detail would be perfect to dress up a more everyday outfit as well, though. Already I'm thinking up ways to wear it with a pair of leather shorts or a pencil skirt for the office, so it would pay for itself ten times over if we consider cost per wear, I'm sure.

002: I can't quite put my finger on exactly what it is about this dress that I love. It caught my eye on the Peter Hahn site and I've not been able to stop thinking about it since. It's so simple; a pretty powder pink colour which would go with just about anything, in just about any season. (I'm thinking of wintery powder pink with a fur jacket or bolero for the November do). Versatile indeed.

What do you think? Would these work together as a wedding outfit? And also separately as wardrobe staples, in a bid to shop more sensibly? What would you wear to a wedding?

  1. I love these choices! The sparkly jacket in a neutral hue with go with everything in your closet and will easily go from day to night. Same for the powder pink dress. I think you could sew a lovely version for yourself - Anna or Emery would be lovely :)

  2. That jacket is utterly gorgeous! I think it would look perfect with the dresses you sew, especially a full skirted one - very flapper meets fifties! You always find such wonderful pieces :)
