I have a few friends who would swear by the unconventional wedding dress. You won’t catch them dead wearing a ball gown on their wedding day. Absolutely no hope for the fussy stuff.
These days, I’m getting more attracted to the understatedly elegant, simply graceful yet abundantly feminine wedding dress. In a general fashion sense though, I love silk, in whatever form, if i had my way, i’ll be swathed in silks all day every day. Then, my best clothing detail in the world is draping, generous luxe draping. Combine both and it makes sense then that I fell in love with this Amanda Wakeley collection at first sight.
Not for your conventional bride but it ticks all the boxes of chic.
It’ll cost you though. An Amanda Wakeley dress retails from £2,000. See more details here
So what do you think? Will you go for the classic ball gown or you’re more along these non fussy lines?

Something fifties and lady like will always always appeal to me. I love this exquisite find on Net-a-porter, a Red Valentino black and white embroidered cotton dress.
It’s perfect because it combines many delightful elements, black and white, floral embroidery and lacy edges. What more can a girly girl ask for?
You can find on Net-a-porter for £590.
Fashion for me equals creativity, art, self expression. The things that really catch my eye are the unusual, the different, the stand out pieces. It goes to show the mind of the designer or wearer, taste and a great eye is like pregnancy, can’t be hidden. It always peeks out, in the tiny little detail, in the choice of colour, in the decision to have a curved heel versus straight like everyone else.
Walter Steiger’s signature is the curved sole and stunning is what it is. The shoes are sold at flagship stores around the world.

Fashion is so much about creativity and expression. It excites me to no end when I see someone wear something beautiful in an unexpected way. Doesn’t happen every day, so I have to celebrate it when it comes along. I happened upon this yesterday…

On a completely separate note, I found this quote on Pinterest and it makes my heart skip a beat. This is a life note like no other…let’s use the whole box of crayons!
