My stepsister is getting married next April in Sydney and my whole family is going. Our relationship is through my mother whose late husband was my stepsister’s Dad. When I say whole family, that’s me and the husband, my Mum, my sister, her husband and my nephew & niece. It’s going to be a big trip as once we’ve been to the wedding we’re off on a big two week tour seeing lots of things!
I had planned to wear the dress I had for my stepson’s wedding, which is a jade green. But then I saw this dress on the Anna Scholtz website:
It was in the sale! They had it in my size! I bought it for £53! It’s arrived! And it fits!!!
It is so pretty in person. The lace is orange and the underdress is cerise pink. All I have to find now is underwear that doesn’t show under it. No probs… What do you bet that costs more than the dress?! I am seriously considering getting some shoes died to match but that *may* be *slightly* too much orange? Maybe some nude or silver ones. We’ll see. Either way I am so pleased with this dress!
And the husband has admired it too and suggested we get him a shirt and tie to match. Tie definitely. Shirt no… I think that might be sliiiightly too much!
I did also get a new dress for interviews (being optimistic) 😄
I do feel like I’ve had a successful time with my shopping. I did try and take some photos of the dresses here but can’t get the colours right so I’m resorting to pix from the Anna Scholtz website.
I really love Anna Scholz designs. If you don’t know her stuff, she designs plus size clothes ranges, her own website http://www.annascholz.com has her designer range and there are more affordable pieces through simplybe.co.uk. I have quite a few pieces from Simply Be but I do keep an eye on the sales from her main website and these are dresses 3 and 4 I’ve had from the designer range. You can completely feel the difference in the material and finish. Plus the sizing is better I think. When I’m rich I shall only ever buy posh clothes. 😄😄
