|Outfit I put together via the ASOS Fashion Finder|
I put together the outfit above via ASOS Fashion Finder. This would be my ideal outfit if I could afford it, I can't at the moment so instead I've set about finding and creating a couple of cheaper options. James did buy me the shoes and handbag though, these will both be worn for certain.
I have two outfits in mind the first a floral affair.
The yellow blazer is by Louche from Joy, I picked this up a while back for £30. The faux coral Art Deco style necklace I bought just last week from eBay. I had been coveting a piece like this for a while and there were plenty to choose from on eBay I just had to wait until I could get one at a decent price. I love this necklace and will be wearing it as often as possible. The rose print dress is from Topshop but old stock, I bought this on ebay recently for £13 including postage, specifically for the wedding. I wanted something loose and stretchy in case I have had the surgery, I didn't want something fitted around the insertion points. Now I'm 5'10", my legs aren't at their best and won't be until I can get back in to my exercise routine so I wanted something a bit longer underneath. I had planned on just wearing a slip but I tried it on with this pale pink dress from H&M and loved how it looked under the dress when worn. Now they just need an iron.
The second item is this pastel number. I was originally thinking I would wear this dress with the yellow blazer from Joy but as the colour of the blazer is more of a mustard yellow I didn't think it quite sat right with the pastel mint colour of this dress. The dress I love, I bought it on eBay for £9.55. If you search for it on eBay it is called vintage Korea pleated sleeveless belted chiffon mint green dress - a slight mouthful but while the seller I bought it from still has it up you can find it here. The animal print coat I've had for years from Warehouse, I remember that I bought it in the sale for about a tenner. It's a bit tight at the moment but I think I can get away with it, it will also keep my dress down if its a windy day. I also plan to wear my coral necklace with this outfit, I want to wear it with everything. If I don't, I'll go with multiple short gold chains and sparkly stud earrings.
Now the make-up I'll think about later, I'm not going to fixate on which outfit to wear until I know I can definitely go but at least I feel prepared.
