Upstage the bride


Wedding season is in full swing and I have been tearing my hair out trying to decide on dresses to wear for various summer weddings.  Last year I went to my friends wedding in Jersey where I wore a Monsoon dress but this year I didn’t want to wear the same thing, so I decided to model one of my potential outfits for an upcoming wedding I’m off too.   Chi Chi Modesta

The dress I have on is from Chi Chi and is their Modesta dress. The reason I think it’s perfect for a wedding is because it’s quite understated but gives you a great platform to accessorize.  I wouldn’t normally go for this look but I decided to try something new, but I’m very pleased with the outcome.

I absolutely love how this Chi Chi dress feels on me, it has netting underneath the skirt so it lifts it a touch…  It’s great having this as it creates great shape, especially with the emphasis around the waist with the fabric. I have bit of a chest so was slightly worried the shape of the top would make me look bigger, but luckily it doesn’t at all. If you were worried about your arms being on show the cute cut off shoulders are perfect to divert eyes away from your arms, instead they create a diversion to how beautiful the colour is of the dress.

 This is quite a romantic dress and my goodness it feels amazing on, the quality of fabric means the dress sits perfect.  I know I’m bleating on about it being great for a wedding, which it is, but it’s also a great companion on a date perhaps? 


Oh laughter lines… how I hate you so.

One major plus for me was that this dress is ideal for when you are eating at a wedding… it’s all well and good wearing a fitted dress but sitting down, eating then potentially getting the post food bloat? Not attractive! This dress caters to that without changing the look, regardless if you had too many sausage rolls or wedding cake at the  buffet!
