I have shipped Betsey Johnson dresses from the US for that perfect wedding look and in fact have 3 that have done the rounds in various combos, adding bespoke cummerbunds or adapted silk shirts into jackets for the perfect 50's silhouette. But this year I want to do less sewing (I need to make new curtains my priority)
The first Betsey dress which I have worn to 2 weddings and a party.
The 2nd Betsey dress..
The pink cummerbund I used as belt.
The Coast shirt I adapted into a Jacket
The other Betsey is in the wardrobe being saved for a party on the 2nd which is Mad Men themed!! (I will of course blog images.)
So let me introduce you to.. (drum role please) Suzannah, the dresses are to die for and the price tags mean that I am going to be working like a dog to afford them but I think they may just be worth it.
First on my wish list is this gorgeous One Shoulder Tulip Dress £650, The colour is so vibrant and the cut is perfect. Just think of the colour clash shoes I could do with it too!! This will be great for the black tie wedding in Chicago.
Then 2nd is this adorable Bat Heart fifties Amy Dress £365 which will work a dream for the traditional English wedding in the summer and maybe for various parties throughout the year!
