2 of our lovely friends got married yesterday & I know how much you bunch enjoy an occasional OOTD post, so here is a bit of a haphazard 'WOOTD'!
My dress first of all was from Phase Eight, currently available in the sale! The draping around the shoulders & tummy areas gave it a really flattering shape (one for the curvier ladies!). I had intended on wearing a watch & had picked out either my gold Michael Kors or white ceramic Fossil. In the end, I completely forgot to pop one on & spent most of the day in a timeless bubble!
My necklace was from Butler & Wilson last year which I actually wore to my own wedding. I love how I can wear it again & again. The shoes were Dorothy Perkins from about 3 years ago - I bought them for my engagement party in 2008!
I wanted to do something a bit different with my hair; I normally wear it down, big & curly for a 'do'. I watched a few tutorials by Lilith Moon, grabbed a few kirbies & got going!
I started by curling all of my hair using straighteners. I sectioned off the crown & 2 sections at the front & pinned them out the way. I popped the rest of it into a low ponytail and started just randomly pinning curled sections up working around in a circle, basically forming a bun shape. I placed the hairband on in-front of the crown section, but behind the 2 sections at the front. I then backcombed the crown and pinned those curls into the rest of the bun. Next, I twisted small sections on each side of the 2 front sections and pinned the twisted sections around the back, using them to hide the hairband. Et Voila! Took about 20 -30 minutes.
And because I'm so good to you, here's a sneaky snap of the happy couple!
