The theme, if you can call it a theme, for our wedding is Art Deco. I say theme, but it's not fancy dress or anything. Basically we have taken inspiration from the era in terms of dress and
decoration. Style wise I have always had a penchant for vintage. In particular the 20s 30s and 70s. i love the indi, boho and rocker looks for everyday casual dress but whenever it comes to something formal I have always gone with a nod towards a more decadent era and to me the 20s embodies the pure luxury and self-indulgence as well as the self expression I associate with
weddings. It made perfect sense for us to take inspiration from the glamour and fun from the 20s.
Moving on then to the dress I will be wearing for my Hen do;
I won this on ebay. It is almost 100 years old yet it still has all the beads!! there was a teeny tiny hole on one of the shoulders which I have repaired and now it is perfect!
I am so excited to wear this. We havn't decided what we are doing for the actual do itself yet, but I know what I'll be wearing! The dress is sheer so I have bought a couple of slips from Marks and Spencers to go underneath. One is Nude and the other is Black. I havn't decided which one I will put underneath yet though. I am currently on the hunt for the perfect pair of T-bar shoes to go
My lovely mother suggested these;
Teatro Helga Bugle Bead Trim Shoe from Littlewoods.
Unfortunately they were discontinued before I could make up my mind!
The heel can't be too high as I am rubbish with heels and I need to be able to wear them all night and dance in them.
The search continues.......
