Attractive Opposites! High Street Honey: LK Bennett

July 31st, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

When wandering the shops at Covent Garden yesterday, I chanced upon LK Bennett’s latest collection, and was struck by the chic bridesmaid (or more casual wedding gown) options literally lining the walls. 

.

No doubt inspired by the “P Middy” effect – and as of this weekend now not one but two Royal Weddings rocking cream bridesmaid gowns -  this wedding blog favourite and total High Street Honey has gone super chic, with contrasting shades of black or cream. 

.

In quality fabrics, beautiful cuts and at church appropriate lengths, this collection is worth a look for any bride deserving of fashion snaps!

.

Be inspired…

What To Wear To A Wedding: Black Tie

May 28th, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

As a wedding blogger, I was expecting to chat to lots of brides to be, but I have also had a number of emails recently from wedding guests.  The topic could be anything from wedding gift ideas to bringing your baby protocol to plus one panics, but one theme that comes up time and time again is that age old what to wear conundrum.

.

I thought that I would help out the sartorially challenged amongst us by creating a series of posts to guide you through the fashion minefield that attending a wedding can be.  First up, a swanky black tie wedding. 

.

The first rule of dressing for a wedding is always do what it says on the tin – adhere to the dress code.  If you don’t, you will just annoy the bride and end up feeling silly.  This is a time to blend in, but with panache!

.

If the invitation says black tie that means dinner jackets and dickie bows for the guys, long gowns for the girls.  Most importantly, your long gown should be any colour other than white, ivory, champagne or very pale pink. Show some sense woman!

.

Here are two similar looks at two different budgets.  Sexy senorita!
