So this last weekend we bathed in sunshine (I think the volcano's way of saying sorry?) in my parent's blooming garden albeit with cupcakes for there was just no time!
We bonded with squinty eyes pouring over my little laptop screen at StyleShake and every online shopping and hire page I could find. Now as I have mentioned before I want my girls to look and feel delicious. Yet, how does one do that?
We sat together and I tried to ascertain their likes and dislikes. Now remember the girls, they are really pretty and have bodies that could wear anything. So I thought they would be into wearing uber cute dresses. How wrong was I!
Here is the list of thoughts I finally managed to drag out of them! (How do girls get through life without knowing which type of dress suits them. Gah! I love you but gah!)
No long dresses
No strapless dresses
No one shoulder dresses
No pastels (rather ok with that)
No super short dresses (well maybe with tights?!)
We would like to wear the same thing with matching accessories!
Yikes, perhaps the antithesis of my comrade desires. They look at me like I'm crazy to want to have mismatched ladies. "You don't want us to look the same?!" "Ok, but if we get different dresses we would all where the same shoes and stuff?" Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
How do I explain I am not that thrilled to make them all look like clones of one another. How do I explain the way I want them to look. Polyvore? I think it is time to let them in on some of the interwebs secrets. (Oh yes, I can be patronising too!)
Here are some little polyvores to describe the look I am going for. I hope you like!
Now we are to be married in a wood panelled room with a little bit too much red for my liking. (I will get to the part So I think black with a lot of brown may be a bit worrisome? Also does anyone else find a difficult "colour" to work with, generally accessories make it look cheap?! However I do adore this little combination, particularly the far right dress. How fabulous! So what do we think of black? I adore black dresses.

You may have guessed by now that I have a thing for purple and grey. I also have a thing for this awesome Halston dress. Seriously could this be a more beautiful but cool wedding dress? Would you even need a flower in your hair? I also seriously adore the three potential comrade dresses. Although are they too "wedding guest?" My girls are super helpful and do just want to go and try on dresses which would be so fun. However, I'm a little too impatient and also am not free any weekend until the end of June (which I know is still ages from the wedding.)
